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

Touching, worldess to describe this game's wonders

Very touching game, this reminds me of that one game, oh, by 2darray, Company of Myself, that's it. With the sad story accompanying in a fairly simple game.
So touching, and some of the levels were a little complicated. I had to get to the end for the story.

My Review

The story was amazing, i found myself on the edge of my seat frantically looking for the next cloud to read the next part of the story. An explanation of the 3 items would have been nice, and i should have read the medals before i started playing, i beat the game and only got 10 points. At one point i got lost and searched everywhere for the door. I think a compass to point you to the next point would have been a nice touch. Decent game

Just an illusion

People who make these type's of games set out to tell a story. This only appeals to a certain number of people, because I personnaly don't play games to hear a compelling story, but instead to experience a new type of gameplay. That is where this game fails.

The reason that this is a game and not a film is because people like feeling that their progressing through the story. Through every challange and obstacle their becoming a part of this mans life. This sadly, is just an illusion. The gameplay is flat, has been done countless times, and feels repetetive and unenjoyable.

This is nothing but a simple game wrapped in fancy paper to make it look good.
