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

It's one of those "art" games that have repetitive easy platforming. I tried to enjoy it, but at the end I really don't care about the character. It feels like I just wasted my precious time.

Not what I expected

In the end I found it this game overly simplified. There is no real difficulty or challenge. Rather retro in style, which i'm not talking down on, merely stating. I have started to feel like these "deep" type games are becoming somewhat of a fad and a bit overplayed. The music fit the game, though more ways in one as it seemed rather repetitive as well. Honestly by the 3rd area I had lost all motivation to play this, but who knows, someone might like it.

Has Potential

Well here's the thing, the storyline was great but where do you go from there? The game is just too repetive, causing it to get boring fast. I gave 6 stars for the story and 1 point for the game concept, but it lacked that "sparkle" to it that keeps people playing it. A solution to that could be to enable the player the option to make different decisions and altering the story based on what you do, a "Fable" concept if you will. Make good choices for a good ending, make bad ones for a bad ending, and maybe something in between. That's just my personal opinion though, and you did a good job regardless. Congrats on on 4th place! ;)

A bit wierd...

Not really sure what to think of it like the person below me. It was good, i guess. But after level 3 i couldn't make myself play another level cuz it just got boring. It just didn't seem like anything was gonna get better. But ill give a 7 for the effort
