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

Great game

Speechless, really, such an awesome writing and a great story with this impossible-not-to-cry-at music. Maybe levels were bigger than they should be, I don't know, but if you just keep playing you can't regret it, 'cause it's nothing but a rewarding experience.

The flying, the smoke, everything in here counts, every single detail seems to have its place. I don't know if I'll replay it (it took me so long the first time) but I surely want to complete all challenges and endings, if there are more than the one I got.

Beautiful Story, Frustrating Gameplay

I thought it was a beautiful story, and the variances when you select the different items gave it a nice replay value. A lot of the times though I found myself out of the story because I was frustrated with some of the navigation puzzles. The difficulty needs to be pulled down a little to add more focus on the story, because I think that is what makes this piece strong.

Good Game

What do i have to do in the moon level on the highest/deepest plattform? There is no hint and i always just see me dying. This little issue spoiled the game for me at the end, 'til it was entertaining through the whole game so far.

Good game

~The game itself was a bit difficult in the later levels and It only used four keys as a platformer it stinks. But the story makes up for that I felt drawn in try to get to the next part of the story.
~A 7 because the platforming could be better.
~For those who think this is boring that probably because this game is more of a slow paced game.
