Wow, it is amazing to explore this world! All these different areas with all the details in it - plants that can be cut down, water of different depth, areas with different temperature, icy walls that can be melt by drinking a hot cup of coffee! ;-)
I first mistook the portals as doors and got confused completely. But once I learned that they are portals this all made sense. I like how the same area can be attached nearly anywhere and that the same area can be entered from different directions depending on where you put the portal. And I like how the portals somehow still just behave like doors. You can open and close them and if they are open, monsters can follow you thru them and you can just see thru them as if they where open doors!
Up to now I did not manage to collect any wands. So I will definitely play this one again to find out how they work.
