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

Decent game, simple concept and easy to play but tricky to master, I found myself getting bored quickly though

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Gameplay was annoying in places

Was the main character supposed to be such an unlikeable bastard?

So when he's talking on the phone to his mum he's too self-obsessed to give her a chance to tell him he's dying? And when he does find out, he feels "Oh God, this is so hard for ME" and basically shuts her out of his life so he doesn't have to watch her die? He's not there to comfort or help her in the slightest bit.
And when she does die, he's like "Oh, ok" and throws himself into his studies, even taking his project with him to her funeral.
And when his life doesn't turn out to be the amazing success he wanted it to be, he decides to kill himself by burning his mother's old house down?

Honestly, there are several games out there that are just like this one. I did not find myself moved by the lacking and predictable storyline. I think very little effort was put into this game and had the controls been worked on a bit more and had some imagery rather than just text bubbles been included, this could have been much better. It was pretty much just a sob story and a pixely game shoved together. Sorry, but I think "Alight" is only deserving of a 5/10.

Not what I expected

In the end I found it this game overly simplified. There is no real difficulty or challenge. Rather retro in style, which i'm not talking down on, merely stating. I have started to feel like these "deep" type games are becoming somewhat of a fad and a bit overplayed. The music fit the game, though more ways in one as it seemed rather repetitive as well. Honestly by the 3rd area I had lost all motivation to play this, but who knows, someone might like it.
