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.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Niftily Awesome

Very well done game, I'd say. I'm not gonna critique this to hell, so move on if ya looking for that kind of review xD

I have to say, though, just reading the Candle-line text felt very familiar to what I experienced with my dad passing (he passed away the summer before I left for college). Needless to say, I felt touched by this game.

My only criticism would be the player finding out how to use the flight mechanic properly. It took me a good solid few minutes to realize how to get maximum fly height, and how to manipulate it for some of the obstacles you devised.

Nice game.

Nice games. As pointed out by others, the dream line is quite interesting.
I've just a question: I've seen the ending on youtubes and the final lines are quite different from the ones I read in MY finale. Are there multiple finales? How many? Thx!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Its artsy, neat idea, poor follow through.

I see I'm not the only one who will critique this too hell, SO LET ME DO IT ANYWAYS!

To start, lets go with what I enjoyed.

Flight, the flight mechanic was done VERY well and made you feel more or less, free. Not much to say here, so NEXT ONE!

The dialogue, story, and what else is essentially the reason to play this too the end, I was always hungering to see what he would remember. Its amazing how well it made me WANT to get through the levels.

Several endings and very nice looks. Basically, anything that is a flash game that offers SEVERAL endings, especially each one is based on difficulty choice. Also, it looks pretty, the looks also compliment the dream.

Now the bad part.

Several areas are a complete guess or don't make much sense once you DO find the solution.

Heavily storied based and does drag on level wise.

Gameplay feels more or less to string the story and multiple ending choices together.

Now, how to fix it.
1. More gameplay, a little less story.
2. Combine both gameplay and story.

Thats about it, pretty good.
