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

Good Stuff

Very good game. The thrill of flight is a good hook to any game, in my opinion.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Loved It

The game is great. I loved the story, though the actual part with the darkness was a little rage for a noob like me. I also couldn't find level 8 :c
