''Puella Mamam...''... ''Pulla Maga''... ''Plama Maka''... ''[[PorkyPigPronunciation PMMM Portable]]'' is a LicensedGame for ''[[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Puella Magi Madoka Magica]]''. It was released on the {{PSP}} March 15th, 2012, and was published by NamcoBandai. It has heavy involvement from the anime cast; Gen Urobuchi is supervising the scenario, while Creator/StudioSHAFT and Gekidan [=InuCurry=] are providing visual designs.

The game is part first-person {{Roguelike}} dungeon crawler and part VisualNovel. The player controls the magical girls while they navigate witches' labyrinths and fight off familiars. In between dungeons, the choices made by the player can affect the characters' fighting abilities and [[OffTheRails alter the anime's story]]. For example, it is possible to change the events of [[WhamEpisode Episode 3]]. The player can select commands for both Kyubey and Homura and play from the viewpoint of both characters.

The game is notable [[AdaptationExpansion for including a number of elements absent from the anime]], such as a TransformationSequence for Madoka and witches that were [[AllThereInTheManual only mentioned on the anime's website]].

A FanTranslation project has been initiated [[https://www.facebook.com/tradukosoft here]].

In December 2013 an ActionizedSequel of sorts was released for the PSVita. Entitled ''Puella Magi Madoka Magica - The Battle Pentagram'', it re-uses many of the same elements as ''Portable'' but trades the {{Roguelike}} gameplay for HackAndSlash.

!Tropes in ''Puella Magi Madoka Magica Portable'' include:
* AbsurdlyHighLevelCap: You can reach level 99 with the girls, but the only benefit of it is making the Bonus Dungeons easier.
* AdaptationExpansion: And quite a bit of it. For example, remember the inflatable Madoka from the anime's opening? The game reveals where it came from. ''It's one of Madoka's special moves''.
** AllThereInTheManual: The game itself looks like it will become a manual for the anime.
* AlternateTimeline: Actually a gameplay mechanic, see NewGamePlus below. This also means it's possible to play as Homura with glasses.
* AnachronicOrder: One of Homura's most powerful attacks, [[PowerGivesYouWings The Black Wings of Corrosion]], is lifted from the [[BolivianArmyEnding anime's epilogue]], yet she's able to use it alongside her [[TimeStandsStill temporal powers]] and can attain it before fighting Walpurgisnacht.
* AnotherSideAnotherStory: Each route focuses on a different girl, provided you don't turn them into witches (in which you automatically get Homura's route)
* {{Balloonacy}}: Remember Madoka blowing herself up like a pufferfish in the Anime OP? In the game, she ''weaponizes'' it by flying into the enemy like a balloon with an open end(the skill is called 'Pannier Rocket').
* BonusBoss: The witches Quitterie, Albertine and Itzli are only seen in the bonus dungeons.
* ButThouMust: In Homura's bonus route, you can either choose to tell Mami to get a dog or become an idol (a sort of pop star). Either way, Mami's going to end up with the latter.
* CallBack: Homulilly's wings look the same as the ones Homura sprouted in the anime's epilogue.
* DrivenToSuicide:
** In Sayaka's route, Kyubey suggests that Kyousuke could be one of "those types of artists" that may decide to kill themselves. Sayaka rejects the possibility. [[spoiler:She's wrong.]]
** If informed of the AwfulTruth by Homura, [[spoiler:Mami may opt for this]].
** In the past, following [[spoiler:her PaterFamilicide]], Kyoko gets into an argument concerning this, claiming that anyone who wants to kill themselves will do so regardless of whether or not they're being influenced by a witch.
* EarnYourBadEnding: From Kyubey's point of view, pushing the girls further into despair is a ''good'' thing.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler: Apparantly, there are only TWO of them: ]]
** [[spoiler: Just like the anime, Madoka sacrifices herself and retcons the entire universe. OR]]
** [[spoiler: Madoka doesn't make a contract, the party (Mami, Sayaka, Kyoko and Homura) become best buds and defeat Walpurgisnacht, and the five of them make plans for shopping trips in Mami's room.]]
* [[spoiler:FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Homura's route can end in a happy note if you choose your actions wisely, but all other routes end in disaster and Homura having to rewind time no matter what you do.]]
* FandomNod: In many flavors, from the amount of ShipTease to the plots of some of the girls' routes taking nods from popular portrayal of characters.
* {{Feelies}}: Apparently the limited edition of the game will include a Madoka figurine, a handkerchief, and a Kyubey pouch, among other things.
* FiveManBand: In the Extra Route:
** TheHero/ TheSmartGirl: Homura
** TheLancer: Sayaka and Kyouko.
** TheBigGirl: Mami.
** TheChick: Madoka.
* ForMassiveDamage: The higher level skills on the girls' move trees can achieve this - particularly Mami's Bombardment and Homura's Anti-Ship Missile.
** Homura's The Black Wings of Corrosion deals even more damage than Anti-Ship Missile.
* ForWantOfANail: The only difference between various routes is a single choice.
** InSpiteOfANail: ...but the result is [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption almost always the same.]]
* FreakOut: In Sayaka's route, [[spoiler:Kyousuke discovering Sayaka's Puella Magi powers (by finding her with ''half her face'' missing) will result in him panicking and calling her a monster and an impostor. This is not a good thing for Sayaka either.]]
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan
* GradualRegeneration: Characters can regenerate their health and magic by walking it off, but there are items available to restore set amounts of health.
* HitMeDammit: In the Bonus Route, Homura can convince [[spoiler:Hitomi to duel Sayaka for Kyousuke's love]]. When the other girl hesitates, [[spoiler:Hitomi goads her, then slaps her first to drive her into action]].
* HopelessBossFight: [[spoiler:Battle against Gisela in Mami's Route.]]
* ISurrenderSuckers: When playing as Homura, Kyoko may pull this during the confrontation on the bridge, pretending to surrender in order to launch a sneak attack.
* ItsAWonderfulFailure: Dying to Walpurgisnacht in Homura's route [[spoiler:results in Homura being unable to turn back time, which THEN results in her becoming a witch.]] The Game Over screen shows [[spoiler: Homura's witch form, Homulilly]].
* LateArrivalSpoiler: The game's website doesn't even bother trying to hide the various shocking revelations of the anime, such as witches being magical girls.
** TrailersAlwaysSpoil: The trailer reveals that it is possible to have Mami become a witch. Further trailers and promotional material reveal Kyoko is also getting a witch form.
* LicensedGame
* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition: Including such [[{{Feelies}} goodies]] as a figma of Madoka in her school uniform, a Kyubey-shaped coin purse, a special Blu-ray disc, and more! Some online retailers even included ''extra'' extras on top of that, such as t-shirts.
* MagicIdolSinger: Mami becomes one (thanks to Homura's pushing) in one of the special routes.
* MultipleEndings: To each of the routes, which is kind of to be expected.
* MyGreatestFailure: Mami feels this way about not saving her parents, as well as failing to save a young boy from a witch.
* NewGamePlus: Replaying the game will make the magical girls more powerful, in reference to Homura's time-travel abilities.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In Kyoko's Route, [[spoiler: to prevent her from making her TakingYouWithMe HeroicSacrifice against Sayaka's witch, Homura kills Octavia before Kyoko and Madoka can try to talk her back to humanity. If Kyoko's Soul Gem is at a high level of corruption, then this results in Kyoko falling into despair at losing her last hope and turning into a witch.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler: Because of Kyubey's inability to understand human empathy, some of his dialogue options can accidentally encourage the girls instead of breaking their spirits.]]
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Several! In fact, in the Extra Route, there were plenty of witches taken down by any of the magical girls there off screen.
* OffTheRails: Saving Mami from dying? Check. Saving Sayaka from becoming a witch? Check. ''[[VideoGameCrueltyPotential Turning Mami or Kyoko into a witch?]]'' '''''Check'''''. But the off-railing already starts since the tutorial route. In Madoka's route that follows closely to anime, [[spoiler:it ends with Homura failing to prevent Madoka's contract in Episode 8 and she has no choice but to repeat the timeloop.]]
* OneWingedAngel: Wanna see what Mami, Kyoko, and Homura look like as Witches? Go right ahead.
** ClippedWingAngel: Mami's witch form isn't that strong compared to [[ThatOneBoss Kyoko's]]. And you [[NonStandardGameOver don't get to fight Homura's one at all]].
* OutOfCharacterMoment: A picture from the website shows Kyubey's dialogue options while the other characters are watching Charlotte's Grief Seed. One of the options is "Wanna go eat hamburgers?"
** This is the usual MO of the bonus route. When Homura urges Mami to become an idol so she won't be so lonely anymore, she literally asks Mami if she wants to become an idol or she wants to get a dog.
* PlayableEpilogue: [[spoiler: Homura fights Demons in the desert wasteland, just like TheStinger in the end of the anime, but the Demons can't attack and Homura can only use her arrow skill. She fights a literally endless horde of them until the ending theme finishes.]]
* ProductionForeshadowing: In [[EnhancedOnDVD the BD/DVD release]] of Episode 9 of the anime, a pair of wind chimes with the shapes of a unicorn and a mermaid were added to an existing scene. Given that the latter clearly referred to Sayaka, it was believed that the unicorn referred to Kyoko. ''Portable'' reveals that [[spoiler: Kyoko's witch form, Ophelia, rides a horned horse.]]
* {{Roguelike}}
* [[spoiler: SenselessSacrifice: If Homura dies alone but kills Walpurginacht; Kyubey comments on how without a guardian Puella Magi for the city, eventually a witch will emerge again and he'll contract Madoka then.]]
* ShipTease: There is at least one image of Sayaka and Kyousuke holding hands. [[LesYay There is also an image of Sayaka crying in Kyouko's arms.]]
** Junko comments on how Homura reminds her of herself when she was young. What would Madoka look for in a husband in the AllThereInTheManual [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/100_Questions questionaire?]] "Someone cool like her mama."
** [[http://images.puella-magi.net/4/4e/Madoka_Portable_-_Madoka_invites_Homura_for_dinner_English_translation.png?20120419141651 We can do better than that.]]
** Between Sayaka and Kyoko in Homura's best ending:
--> '''Sayaka''': [Mami] goes to school, does her Magical Girl duties, and still has time to take care of her house. She's perfect! I'd sure like to marry someone like Mami-san-
--> '''Kyoko''': I get it. I'm a slob, aren't I?
* ShootTheShaggyDog: On one of the paths to Sayaka's bad ending, Kyoko [[spoiler:uses up her entire stockpile of grief seeds fighting to get back her soul gem, and lets her own get corrupted]].
* ShoutOut: Mami apparently has an attack named "[[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Unlimited Magic Bullet Works]]"
* SomethingWeForgot: There's no other way to describe the bonus route. Madoka doesn't contract, Mami becomes famous with her idol things, Sayaka's dating Kyousuke, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick Kyouko goes apeshit on local gangs and hogs all Grief Seeds]]... All well and dandy, right? [[spoiler:Well, damn... here goes Walpurgisnacht. And this time, Homura doesn't prepare herself at all because she spent the month uniting the group through PowerOfFriendship]].
** [[spoiler:It's not like Homura forgot the fight against Walpurgisnacht though; she spent time uniting the group for this fight. She just leaps through time again ''even though'' the group may have a chance to win.]]
** [[spoiler:The group CAN win without Madoka's help. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDG5X0S0Ovk This results in characters having a tea party together in Mami's room]](with Kyoko forced into wearing school uniform by Sayaka).]]
* {{Superdickery}}: A CG of Homura hitting Madoka was released as part of the advertisement campaign, usually involving the question of how things could have gone so wrong between them. [[spoiler:This is a scene from the fanservice bonus route, and Homura is [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan interrupting]] Madoka's HeroicSelfDeprecation in order to give her a somewhat clumsy speech about how it's okay for her to not be perfect.]]
* StylisticSuck: Some of the Witches like Gertrude have unusual art styles in the anime, so of course this applies to the game too. Gertrude has a terrible frame rate and looks like she has a low poly count.
* TakingYouWithMe: Kyoko's Cleansing Flame attack
* TheUndead‎: The game ''really'' highlights this aspect of the Magical Girls, as if you fail to retrieve Sayaka's Soul Gem after she throws it off the bridge quickly enough, necrosis will set in and when you ''do'' get it back she'll [[FaceFramedInShadow apparently]] look like something out of a horror movie when she wakes up.
* UngratefulBastard: If [[spoiler:Kyousuke and Hitomi]] are clear-headed when found in a witch's barrier, then rather than thanking their rescuer, they lash out at her, with [[spoiler:Kyousuke calling her a monster]].
* UnwantedRescue: After fighting [[spoiler: Gisela alone]] in Mami's route, Mami goes back to check on the Witch-kissed suicidal woman she'd encountered before... only to learn that the woman really ''was'' suicidal, and is none too happy with Mami for saving her. [[spoiler: This contributes directly to Mami's bad ending.]]
* VideoGameCaringPotential: Since you control both Kyubey and Homura, you can set things up so that other characters are saved...
** VideoGameCrueltyPotential: ...but it looks like you can also make things ''even worse''.
* VisualNovel
* WholeEpisodeFlashback: Kyouko's route contains one; it is an adaptation of the third Drama CD.
* YankTheDogsChain: In Sayaka's route, Kyousuke may offer her a CD with a song he wrote for her... [[spoiler:before seeing how much her body's rotted and freaking out]].
