+ Simple, intuitive controls (I used an XBOX 360 controller)
+ Narrator has a lovely voice and does a fantastic job with her lines
+ Stunning hand-painted visuals
+ All dialogue rhymes; very clever way to tell a story
+ There are some subtle attempts at comedy (some better than others); my favorite being a certain character that cannot rhyme, and other characters become frustrated and correct her wording to better fall into the rhyming structure
+ Beautiful, melodic and heartfelt soundtrack that really pulls you into the game's atmosphere
+ The addition of your firefly friend makes combat feel interactive in more than the usual sense, and adds depth to your encounters
+ Interruption mechanic makes timing very important; this does well to add another refreshing layer of challenge to encounters
+ It cannot be said enough that the story is both charming and engaging
+ Cut-scenes and injections of dialogue serve to complemet the pace of the game, rather than break it up unevenly

- 'Puzzles' are scarce, and are alarmingly easy; they may as well have not been included in the final product

I loved this game, but Uplay took it away from me.

I had never used Uplay before this, so I didn't know what I was getting myself into.

The second time I loaded the game all my save files were lost, now I can't even play it anymore.

I can't seem to find a way to get it to work again, so I guess I cant play it anymore.

Be warned, you have to use Uplay to play this game.

And Uplay will ♥♥♥♥ you up.



Edit: It may just be my computer messing with me, but I just tried to start the game up one day and it didnt work.
Other people seem to be having problems with Uplay aswell, so this may be on their end.
I'm not saying this will happen to you, but it could, so be aware if you want to buy this game.

One word, Uplay. I can't say anything about the game itself since Uplay won't let me play.

Charming, elegant as well as heart-rending, Montreal brought to life a beautiful side-scroller RPG which will capture your hearts and take your breath away.

Child. Tuck yourself in bed
And let me tell a story
Of Lemuria, a long lost kingdom,
And a girl born for glory.

With the above narration, starts the adventure of Aurora, a princess "born for glory".
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=440556637
Having put his daughter to bed at night, Aurora's father finds himself in awe to see his daughter not wake up at bright sunlight and soon falls sick. Presumed dead, her father sick, Aurora wakes up in a mysterious place with no one of her knowing face. Isolated and afraid, Aurora must make her journey through the vast kingdom of Lemuria to save her father from his uncharted sickness.

Child of Light's excellent aspects ;
+An exhillarating and tranquilizing mix of music.
+A beautifully executed simple story.
+Hand drawn art which appeals and steals the eye's scrutiny.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=443811063
+A classic blend of RPG elements in a side scroller.
+Turn-based combat which hardly gets boring.
+Lovely side-characters with their quirks diverse.
+A delightful main lead.
+An agape world of Lemuria with bellyful of quests.

Child of Light's not so excellent aspects :
-Rhyming feels forced at times.
-Uplay.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=444860853
Almost every aspect of Child of Light appeals to you, enlightens you and charms you with its elegance. Child of Light is a adventure which is worth every dollar of the 15 it is asking for. Play it and all your warmth, care, feelings and affections will be content.
