Alight is a platformer that mixes exploration and reflexes and more than a little story. Move with the arrow keys, fly with the space bar or up arrow. If you find yourself having trouble getting much altitude, trying pressing the space bar at a slower pace until you find the right rhythm. And remember that you can always drop down out of a flock of birds without using a flap of your wings with the down arrow key.

Every time you enter a door, your game is automatically saved, and you can replay a level at any point.

If you're amazed by the music like we were, you should check out Smiletron, who made the song -- he has a web site at and more songs at

Rated 5 / 5 stars

love the multiple endings

although i dont get why he had to set his house on fire to design this dream wanting to say goodbye to his mother, but then say it is time for him to wake up. i would have thought the ending where he did not want to wake up would be more suited for wanting to say goodbye to his mother.

Great, no need to say anything more...

But, once you are on top of **SPOILER** your job's building and enter the strange/nightmarish thingy mode, **END OF SPOILER** on the very start, top right, there is a corner missing, and the fog is wrong ^^ look that up :)

Hey I made an account just to tell you that I think this is probably the most well spent time I've ever used on Newgrounds. You've truly created something beautiful and should be very proud of what you've done; this is art.

I doubt I'll be moved enough again to write another review on this site, so goodbye, and thank you.
