Friday Fun Video: Portal Played on iPhone

Is this a triumph? Portal running on an iPhone? Not really, according to Gizmodo:

The video says the demo was made using the Unity Engine, which means they took some Portal assets and made a small demo with them. They didn't take the full game and squish it onto the iPhone; what you see is probably the entire thing. There's no way the Source Engine is running on the 3G. Maybe the 3GS, but not the 3G.
