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 smiletron.org and more songs at 8bc.org/members/SMILETRON

Not perfect

A lot of people tend to either love this game to bits or completely hate it. I'm giving it a 5: The graphics are good enough to illustrate whats going on here and the anticipation is a strong point for this game, it's what kept me playing. But unfortunately I was hoping for a twist at the end, and the smoke wasn't enough of a twist. the rest of the story was just a way to lengthen the game, in other words: it just wasted my time.
However, the game itself was pretty good, the physics, the controls (except I think the the space bar should be the only jump button), the sound effects and the style was all pretty good. but I'm a hardcore classic gamer and even I found this to be tedious at times, getting lost was a major concern.
But as far as I can tell, there were no bugs or any weird and confusing gameplay elements, its very straightforward and easy to pick up.
Good work!

Not up to snuff.

Hey, extra points for using smiletron's music but besides this the game had no appeal for me. It really got boring because the object never interested me enough to want to move forward. Also, the whole idea of flying is moot because you have a limited amount of times to press up/space which just makes it a jump. You're just jumping abnormally high. The glide is a nice touch to reach tough areas but overall it just didn't do it for me. Not enjoyable enough to want to make see it through to the end.

Dam :(

Why it will not work???? :(

kinda boring

its okay and boring

too slow

i know you were going for some sentimental mawkish bs... who hasn't? seems like theres a bunch of these games and they are all the same. very generic. id say this is a bit sub par comparatively speaking because the controls are very sluggish and the visuals arent that pretty. ive kind of had enough of these games as well. i wish they would stop getting made, they are ruining this portal. they take little to no effort to make, just some guy who smokes alot of whatever then writes down some non-sequiter blurbs that have a veneer of deep thought, but dont go much further than superficial nonsense about a less-than-extraordinary life occurrence. for those reading: dont be fooled! do not get sucked into the faddish trance of so-called "deep thought" games. take a step back, and realize that this game sucks.
