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

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

Good, meaningful, but could have been better.

I actually didnt finish the game, I got stuck in an airstream and couldn't move out,
But a good game; a touching story, and 8-bit graphics. All you need for a good game.
It felt too slow though, the jump was just too limited, the story was far too intriguing to go that slow with it. Keep up the good work,
