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

Nice idea (I think)

I like the feel of the levels. That's what at least 4 of the 5 stars I gave are for.

This has to be one of the most claustrophobic games I've played! The movement is delayed and awkward and the "flight" (slowed jumps) highly limited, all of it gives the feeling of crawling through mud. I'm sure this was aiming to be that dreamlike paralysis but I think a more dreamy atmosphere could have done that better than frustrating gameplay.

"I had never smelt anything in dreams before..."
I think I know the studies this was based on but I have to say I'm sceptical of said studies (I certainly do smell and taste things in my dreams, all sorts of things), and this aside I'm not sure most people NOTICE that they don't smell or taste anything during dreams.

Having your character having read that people didn't smell during dreams and applying that during this dream (quite lucid but it already was) would have worked better I think.

But it doesn't matter. I gave up on Level 3 after I again missed an awkward jump set and fell right to the bottom (I'd been trying to miss so that I reset to the high ledge; failed in that).

I agree

I agree with Metaknight5 While this game isn't as boring as he implies it still is very repetetive "He goes to his memorable places recovers an artifact and brings it back to the building"
