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

Not a lot of anything

I think the music and the scenary of the whole game was ok. But even do that, it is pretty bouring and repetetive.
It is a kind of history about some child and that's it.
3/10 because the scenary and the music. All the other things, in my opinion, are bad.

I can't get in to it

If it a good game to other ok but when I am falling asleep to play this it isn't very fun there no wow to keep me going. The story seem nice but i can't stay focus on it to understand it.

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.

I don't know how I played as long as I did

I think there's a really confusing sense of desparation and frustration one can get playing this sometimes... I feel like I spent too much time not knowing what I was doing wrong and it made me want to stop playing. It took all my patience not to blam it cause I assume it's a good game for plenty but those perpetual failures with nothing to take away from them for the next try made the whole experience seem very futile
