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 smiletron.org and more songs at 8bc.org/members/SMILETRON

great

On the spectacle side the game is nothing special, but on the plot wise, music wise, and the control wise it is fantastic

Wow ....

This story was very emotionally involved and deep for just a flash game. I will agree that it was a bit slow trying to get everything put together and I figured something was burning ... especially when the candle was mentioned.

I have to say I got attached this poor guy and really felt bad for him after all that had happened in his life.

Overall, fantastic game. I had the sound turned off unfortuntately, but the gameplay was smooth with little to no glitches with the exception of the noted airstream .... though I managed to get out of it by pressing the down arrow key and timing it so that I eventually popped up into the room. I do wish the game was slightly more fast paced or had a little more too it ... while smooth it was very simplistic ... but I think I understand what you were going for.

I give it an overall 9/10 because of the difficult to figure out glitch and the slow gameplay.

Really a great game

I played through this in about 45 minutes, and it was time well spent. Loved the music, the gameplay, the storyline was touching, but the ending was a bit predictable. I guessed it about halfway through. Otherwise, perfect game, thank you for making it.

If you putted a Navigator map on this game it might be epic :D and when you hit a black bird the sound is kinda creepy but its fine and If you improve the background music a little bit and it will be the coolest game ever :D
