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

Shoot the Moon (SPOILER ALERT)

Wow, this game goes to some very, very dark places. The only reason I'm not giving it a 10/10 is because the story about the road to suicide is pretty uncomfortable--but to be fair maybe that's the mark of good storytelling. Since nobody's mentioned it yet, here's how you get to the secret level. Do not continue reading if you want to find it yourself. I finished every level with the clock, then finished the last level with the clock as well (not sure if that's important). After you touch the green smoke, if you wait a second it'll say "There's always another way" at the bottom of the screen. Just fall into the dark abyss below, and prepare for a seriously disturbing ending.

Excellent

Alight is a deep game that kept me absorbed from start to finish. Although the gameplay doesn't have much variety, the story will keep you playing from start to finish. The pixel art style gives this game a vintage platforming feel and the soundtrack helps set a dream like ambient tone. The challenging achievements give this game plenty of replay value. This game is not for everyone but if playing an introspective, atmospheric platforming game (similar to Braid) interests you Alight is definitely worth a playthrough or two.
