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

This was dumb

you have to be kidding me if you like this game. The designer probably put a lot of work into the game and that sucks for him because it's still terrible

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.

A great excuse to use the same scenery repeatedly

Bad controls, numbing puzzles, unenjoyable monotony. Someone needs to explain to that when you make a game and try to make it artsy, flesh out the mechanics and playability first.

overall i never finished this game, cuz when i get bored i like a game that keeps me going, not one that shows an interesting story but makes you continuously try and fail in order to move on, all i was interested in was whether er not he was dying in a fire or something else was going to happen, but im not planning on sitting here for half an hour to fail enough times to learn a goddamned level.
