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.

Very nice!

It caught me from the start! The items gave it a somewhat "choose your difficulty once you're playing" feel and the story is catchy!

I have one question, though: Is there a way to get the "Zero Candlepower" medal once you picked a candle?
I tested every item in the first level to see what was the difference, but every level I completed it with the clock and ONLY the clock, so I don't understand why I'm not getting the medal!

If the author is reading this, or if anyone has had (or has) the same problem, please answer!

Niftily Awesome

Very well done game, I'd say. I'm not gonna critique this to hell, so move on if ya looking for that kind of review xD

I have to say, though, just reading the Candle-line text felt very familiar to what I experienced with my dad passing (he passed away the summer before I left for college). Needless to say, I felt touched by this game.

My only criticism would be the player finding out how to use the flight mechanic properly. It took me a good solid few minutes to realize how to get maximum fly height, and how to manipulate it for some of the obstacles you devised.

People find this review helpful!

Nice game.

Nice games. As pointed out by others, the dream line is quite interesting.
I've just a question: I've seen the ending on youtubes and the final lines are quite different from the ones I read in MY finale. Are there multiple finales? How many? Thx!
