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

Worth while story, iffy at best game-play.

This game was, in a word, infuriating. The story was great to follow, and the animation was interesting to look at, but the concept of a "don't touch the walls" kind of game kills the best parts of this game. I nearly ripped my hair out navigating through the black walls. Ugh. Would have been infinitely better without that.

Protagonist deserves it

dude forgets to put out a candle, house catches fire while he is asleep and he wakes up from his dream moments before he succumbs to the smoke and flames.

No alternate endings, no just different bonuses and apparently if you get all the clocks something else pops up but don't expect it to be an achievement reward.

Nice try

I like the idea around this game. But the gameplay is way too annoying to be enjoyable.
