From the creative mind behind The Adventures of Shuggy comes an exciting new retro-styled 2D platformer, a winner of Dream Build Play 2012. GameZebo gave it 5 stars and called it "An inter-dimensional 8-bit masterpiece" while Rock Paper Shotgun described it as "a genuinely smart, incredibly challenging puzzle platformer, that's just packed with ideas and extremely well executed".
Grab the gateway guns and explore a huge lab filled with mysterious puzzles in this classic platforming adventure. Use gateway technology to leap from one place to another, change size to explore small passages or defeat large enemies, walk on walls and ceilings to reach new areas and even travel in time to work together with past echoes of yourself.
Move seamlessly between different areas of the vast labyrinthian map with no waiting for loading screens as you explore and discover new power ups. Use each of your new abilities to progress further, unlock shortcuts and find even more power ups.
This video shows one of the main changes coming in the 1.08 update of Gateways, the addition of shortcut gateways that permanently connect different parts of the map. All shortcut gateways connect back to the central part of the map once they're activated allowing you to quickly traverse the map without a lot of backtracking.

Gateways is an upcoming 2D platform game from Smudged Cat Games! Gateways might seem like an everyday platformer,... until you discover the gateway guns. The gateway guns allow you to place two gateways on the walls, floors and ceilings of the lab so that when you pass through one you emerge out of the other.
Gateways takes place on a single sprawling map rammed with puzzles and challenges. As power ups are acquired more and more of the map opens up containing more power ups and secrets. In addition to the gateway guns Ed will also find a torch letting him light up the darker areas of the map and a mirror which can be used to deflect lasers.
A sophisticated help system will help Ed along throughout the game. Every puzzle has a help point next to it where Ed can use power orbs to find out if the puzzle can be solved using his current power ups and abilites. If it can be solved and you're still stumped then spending more power orbs will provide you with the solution.
