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

liked it

music went great with the game.
good story.
but the gameplay became really annoying and frustrating in the later levels. please make jump and glide two separate buttons.
seems like i didn't get the "secret" ending, i clicked quit and that was it? well if it's secret then why all the build up describing what's to come and what to do? i assumed the level would start when i clicked the button, instead it ended and i can't go back??! that really sucked, sorry :(
also, the "i'm smelling smoke" is a complete giveaway of what's going on. just leave that out, it's more subtle without it, there's enough smoke in the game.

Great game

Speechless, really, such an awesome writing and a great story with this impossible-not-to-cry-at music. Maybe levels were bigger than they should be, I don't know, but if you just keep playing you can't regret it, 'cause it's nothing but a rewarding experience.

The flying, the smoke, everything in here counts, every single detail seems to have its place. I don't know if I'll replay it (it took me so long the first time) but I surely want to complete all challenges and endings, if there are more than the one I got.

Beautiful Story, Frustrating Gameplay

I thought it was a beautiful story, and the variances when you select the different items gave it a nice replay value. A lot of the times though I found myself out of the story because I was frustrated with some of the navigation puzzles. The difficulty needs to be pulled down a little to add more focus on the story, because I think that is what makes this piece strong.

Good Game

What do i have to do in the moon level on the highest/deepest plattform? There is no hint and i always just see me dying. This little issue spoiled the game for me at the end, 'til it was entertaining through the whole game so far.
