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

I have not written a review in a long time, nor have I felt the need to, but this game really made me want to. I would have given this game a perfect 10 but it just got a little repetitive. The story was great though it made me want to finish. This game was great it really got into your heart mind and soul. A game with a good story and good music makes an amazing game and this had both. If only the game play was a little better this game could have been brilliant. Hopefully you can continue your creativity and create something even better. Lovely game overall nice job

I agree

I agree with Metaknight5 While this game isn't as boring as he implies it still is very repetetive "He goes to his memorable places recovers an artifact and brings it back to the building"

Ehh, good idea, but bad gameplay

The story is really unique and interesting, (it kind of made me think of Inception) which is definitely a major part in my book. However, what tore me was the follow-up. The gameplay mechanics are just really hard to control, making any maneuvering at all exceedingly difficult and frustrating; not to mention, the first jump, I feel, is quite a bit too small. As an example, you can't even jump onto a very short pillar with JUST the first jump, you have to use 2+ jumps, wasting time, which is important in a timed run. Also, the excessive medals for ONLY the clock (as well as the bad gameplay) make it hard for the player to JUST concentrate on the story, as I think should be done with such a grave and touching storyline like this one. I also think that the detection area for the "somke" storyline locations should be widened. It's hard enough to get around them, but to have to get directly over them to see the text is annoying. And last, but not least, I think that the character's happy-go-lucky walk (I almost want to say that it's similar to if you were to take a leisurely, pleasurable walk through the park.) is due-out-of-place in this serious and reminiscent of a game.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


That is the only word I can use to describe this game. The story is just touching, close to your heart, and you feel bad for the poor guy, but, it still is beautifully personified into a game, 10/10.
