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

Amazing game

this game make my frikin day


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Amazing is not good enough to describe it.

Ok, so, first of all: Excuse me if I make a mispelling of some sort its just that english isnt my born-language.

A few months ago I read this opinion that said that Videogames couldnt be considered an "Art" and (even if I was sure that was a lie) this game, this flash game with no High-Definition graphics couldnt have proved it more wrong.

The Story is Great, after playing for some minutes and getting deeper into the Story i somehow identified with the character like if I was Him.
Now, the Music. I never really got tired of it since it was PERFECT for this game.

The gameplay is really good, even if after you grabbed an object and that "darkness" appeared parts where sometimes kind of repetitive they were totally worth it.

This game is a 10/10 Even if the gameplay could have been better I really cant think of a better way.

Im Adding you to my Favorites And this game aswell.

Keep making this great games and prove all of us that Games CAN BE AN ART.

Will be finishing this...

Maybe it's for an older audience, but it really touched home an virtually every speech bubble. And yes the music was awesome. Controls seemed balanced enough to me...

Thats all I can think of. This game is just simply beautiful. Thats all that I can really think of. This game really pulled at my heart strings man. I'm surprised that some one could make a game so interactive with the storyline and so deep in the plot. The game is simply beautiful in all aspects of the word. THANK YOU for making something so enjoyable for me to play.

This game is incredible. You should make it into a book. For the parts with the different items which lead to different story possibilities, you should have it like "The memory of the candle, go to page xx" and so on for the other items.

I'd buy it.
