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

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


its OK. just don't mistake it for a game. sure things can kill you and it has platfroming elements, but the main idea is its more of a story about one mans life. one of those type of games. like a book. or whatever. i dont really care anymore.

It entranced me.

Discovering what the story behind this character was definitely kept me going. My curiosity lead me to the end, but the parts where you had to take one of the items back to the beginning proved to be almost too much of a challenge that it upset the nice dream feeling; it sort of became a nuisance. I do understand why those parts fit in though. It's an overall fantastic game but to me it was lengthy. I just really felt the emotion at the parts where you unveiled more of his story and the music fit perfectly to that as well. Great job!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very intriguing and deep.

I was hooked on the story. One thing, though, you should separate the "jump" and the "glide" buttons. If you want to glide afterwards, you need to do a full-height jump. I can't count the number of times this messed me up.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Not up to snuff.

Hey, extra points for using smiletron's music but besides this the game had no appeal for me. It really got boring because the object never interested me enough to want to move forward. Also, the whole idea of flying is moot because you have a limited amount of times to press up/space which just makes it a jump. You're just jumping abnormally high. The glide is a nice touch to reach tough areas but overall it just didn't do it for me. Not enjoyable enough to want to make see it through to the end.
