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

when you grab the feather, grab it again for even longer flying.

Not too many games like this out there.

At first I wasn't sure what to think of it. It was a little basic, and a bit slow for my taste... But patience truly pays off in this one, as the story is what really kept me going. (As depressing as it may be.)

The best thing about this is that I couldn't help myself from getting emotional at times. Which is a huge thing for a flash game to accomplish in my book. I loved the way the story was told and how everything was wrapped up so nicely at the end. With a bit of a twist, even. I've gotta say, for the most part, I was really satisfied when I completed it. I've ever played a game that's made me feel the way this one has.

5/5 - 10/10 Excellent job.

As soon as you take your first step on that first smoke cloud placed in front of you you are instantly transported to another world. The story line, the way the creator bonds us with the main character and actually makes us care about his entire life story as we play through his past in an artful way filled with beautiful melodic music and a sense of freedom. you feel the freedom the character feels in the beginning and the sadness that follows as the story progresses, you find yourself becoming the character as you play through the elaborate levels urging to get through to find what happens next. The mention of smoke i believe was a well placed dialogue for it allows you to know what is happening and makes you feel even worst for you know what is going to happen to said character. Beautiful indeed. I normally don't right a review like this but for a game this remarkable it deserves it. keep up the good work, love it and hope to see more from you

I think recently the US just labeled video games as a form of art. And this flash game is, i think, the small but important in showing people that they are right, that video game is art and not some cookie cutter shooter or rpg which sole purpose is to boost sales and trap people in a fake world where they think they're almighty. This game is emotional, but not like the pouring your heart out kind. I love the concept of exploring the theme of dreams and possibly some other themes beyond that. I like that you get to choose what kind of object you choose for the challenge and how they affect the overall story. The music is perfect for the mood at different parts of the game. The core mechanic is simple but never redundant. It would be better if you also had an wasd control of some people that are use to those controls. The level design was also different enough to keep the player engage at all times (except for some people, but they're forgetable) Overall. this was some great shit you put out, i hope you keep going with this kinds of games :)
