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

Awesome!

The music was beautiful, the story was touching, and the gameplay was simple and easy to enjoy.

I personally didn't find it difficult at all. It was just hard enough to give a challenge but not get too frustrating.

Has anyone found level 8 yet?

This reminds me of the Owl City song "Fireflies".

I feel tricked...

Although I found the clock story a but more dark, I preferred the nicer story, but that's beside the point. I feel quite cheated because I spent forever replaying the game thinking if I cleared all the levels with the clock I would gain level 8. Why can't I find level 8?! I want to know so badly, because this is by far the best game of its genre I have ever played. At times I was on the verge of tears, but I did have constant goosebumps because it was so deep especially going to college in another state; it struck a nerve because I really miss my mom and I couldnt imagine not knowing since I really do dominate the conversation. Point being, I love this game to the point that my frustration runs deep. I want level 8 so badly...

I wanted to rate one less for it but I can't bring myself to do so... if someone could email me the level 8 solution I would forever be grateful. My email is bcarter333@ymail.com

Thanks
