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

Brilliant except for a glitch

I am absolutely in love with this game. The pixel art is great and the music puts me in a trance every time I play. My only gripe with it is a glitch on the 4th lvl where I got suck from the wind and couldn't get up because I couldn't jump. Otherwise its great; have you thought about putting it in the indie game showcase at PAX?

Complex Idea; Simple Game

This game made me think about my life, my future and my aspirations. It was a great game which reach an emotional climax and is a little convoluted but great nonetheless and if anything because of it. In terms of gamplay, its simple and intuative.

All of that is very simple. As a matter of fact this game in all is just very simple. To me that doesnt make it bad, it just makes me focus on the main idea. I cant lie and say I wasnt thinking to myself :am I almost done, whemn will this be over: and a game should never have the player thinking that. But still, I give this game a 9/10 for the emotional aspect of it all. Advice if anything: next time, instead of telling the story through graphics and words, tell what you want to say THROUGH the gameplay. The main idea of this game is inspiring and thought provoking. While slightly tricky at points, the gameplay is far from that .__. far to simple for the point
