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

Can't find that 8th level...

An excellent game with an amazing soundtrack. My only gripe is that the 8th level mentioned in the achievements seems impossible to find.

People find this review helpful!

A demo for an interesting jump mechanic

White text with dark subtext is the bald space marine of indie games, but I'd rather you share a personal story rather than try to put this in a game about a bald space marine. If the story is based on real events, that is. If not, then screw you for using cancer as cheap drama.

Very interesting!

Probably the least enjoyable thing about this was how hard it was to get a single medal. Oh well, this certainly had great graphics and detail to spare. The coolest thing was learning how to limit yourself with the wings you had. You had to stop yourself from becoming arrogant, or else you would run out of power. The best thing to do is to really look everywhere to see your environment. You would be surprised at how useful that Shift key can be.

It was weird how the perspective and sizes seemed to change. This kind of touched me on a spiritual level. You would never think those crows would be strong enough to kill you. Everything just moves in such a smooth manner and it makes you wonder what is supposed to be a dream and what is real in this game. The darkness makes a good nightmare.
