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

Art Games

I enjoyed the premise of the game, although I do wonder why art games are so depressing. Art doesn't have to be depressing or even make a statement, it just need to be...well art. The mechanics were good although having to start an entire run over and over because your timing wasn't perfect is really annoying. 6/10 3/5.

For the Author!

Welp, the game itself really doesn't offer anything new or striking BUT

This is the result of scientific study: Dreams about flying are always sex dreams.

Not bad.

Not great, and, given how many games have similar plots, that's just not good enough. The mechanics were kinda cool, but that's the only redeeming feature.
The background music was bland, and the artwork has, like the plot, is familiar.
I feel like, while it was interesting enough for me not to quit, it wasn't really worth the time invested after I finished.
