Twin Sector plays like an amateur dramatics performance of Portal. That might sound mean, but we’re actually a little bit in love with this game. A fun first-person environmental puzzler, its conceit – investigating a disaster in an underground bunker – sees you with a pair gravity manipulating gloves.
