If you’re one of the people who have never experienced the Portal phenomenon for yourself, you now have the opportunity to get involved for precisely no cost whatsoever. That’s right, Valve has released the original game for free, and without any fanfare or even a front page feature on the Steam store.

The freebie Portal is part of Valve’s Learn with Portals campaign, intended to encourage educators to consider the use of video games such as Portal in their classroom.

“One of the biggest challenges in teaching science, technology, engineering, and math is capturing the students’ imaginations long enough for them to see all of the possibilities that lie ahead.”

“Using interactive tools like the Portal series to draw them in makes physics, math, logic, spatial reasoning, probability, and problem-solving interesting, cool, and fun which gets us one step closer to our goal—engaged, thoughtful kids!'”

The promotion, whether or not for education, expires September 20. So if you’ve not yet cursed out GLaDOS’ and her damn tests , now’s the time to get stucked in. Grab your free copy here.

Now only if we can get Half-Life 2 Episode 3, Yes Valve I haven’t forgotten.

Today’s free Android app of the Day – Fieldrunners HD

Sorry I did not post yesterdays free app of the day But this heat is killing me ( if you don’t know what I’m referring to go here) But I should be up and running in a few hours ( I hope crosses fingers..) and it should be all smooth sailing from there.

Armed and animated, a motley crew is bound and determined to infiltrate your base. Control the field in FieldrunnersHD, a tower defense game adapted for your Android device. Blowing up little helmeted soldiers, helicopters, and big, muscle-headed buffoons has never been so visually stunning–because now you can annihilate them in hi-definition graphics. HOO-rah!

Creatively Construct Your Defenses

Choose from seven towers, each with its own special weaponry, and unleash a medley of destruction. You’ll start small, maybe with the Gatling Tower, and work your way up to the Mortar Tower, delivering ultimate destructive powers via the nuke.

With a bird’s-eye view of your field, strategically place your towers where you believe they’ll be most effective. Drag and drop them from the menu to your field. Replace a tower by tapping it and then selling it for cash.

Earn more points and more cash by preventing enemies from crossing the grassy field and infiltrating your base. Lose a life for each fieldrunner that penetrates your defenses.

Demolish Countless Waves of Combatants

Master a wide array of tactics and strategies to help stand victorious against countless waves of unique land and air combatants. With over 400 levels across four unique battlefields, there’s always a Fieldrunner to slay, level to unlock, or achievement to earn.

Three modes of gameplay will satiate your tower defense desires. Start with Classic– offered in Easy, Medium, or Hard. Two additional modes, Extended and Endless, can only be unlocked by beating Classic.

Hi-Def Graphics Make Destruction More Fun

Stunning graphics, sound effects, and background music enhance the already-addictive gameplay. The enemy maintains an undaunting and tenacious character, grunting and collapsing with each blow. It’s just graphic enough to be amusing, but not gruesome enough to feel like you need a therapist.

See if you’ve got what it takes to defeat the Fieldrunners and rise to the top as the ultimate tower defense champion.

Note: FieldrunnersHD requires a phone running OS 2.2 or above, and is not compatible with tablets.
