Nice music. Unreasonable controls. No gamepad support. Same 4 convoluted physic-based puzzles, at least what they call physics. Same 3 boring backgrounds.
Sometimes you can use sprint, sometimes you can't. Why? Who knows. And those levels with indirect control. Oh ball, why you suck so much?

You better off play Braid or even SMB than this game.

Very good 'alternative' levels, some are challenging, some trivial, but every single map is polished. If you're stuck on one level - sleep well and try tomorrow, it really helps ;)

Worth buying on sale.

Oh, I was playing without music, it was vexing (but not SO bad, it's just not my favourite sort of ambient).

A soothing experience, don't expect more than that.
Not worth the $10. I got it on sale so I recommend it nonetheless.

Some days you want to unwind and relax with a game before heading to bed. Something that will provide a little cerebral stimulation rather than giving you sweaty palms. NightSky is that game. The background music is amazing, so much so that I've put the OST into my regular playlist. The visuals are of a color gradiant against black, giving the impression of sunsets. It is incredibly relaxing. Each stage is roughly three panels wide, with the objective of traveling from the left panel to the edge of the right panel. The controls vary with each stage. In some cases you can speed up, in others you can slow down for more precision. In some cases you can't control the ball at all, and instead control the environment. Along the way there are contraptions you become embedded in that allow you to do fun things like hop or fly.

The puzzles aren't terribly difficult, and you can easily complete the game in a couple of sessions. This isn't a game for rushing through, though. So get a warm drink, turn down the lights, and cozy up to this delightful physics puzzler.

Love it. Chill atmosphere with great puzzles and perfect difficulty. It's one of my favorite indie games. Overall, a beautiful game. Got it on sale, but it was so good and well made that I wished I had payed full price just to support the creator. Buy it, you won't regret it.

A fairly simple puzzle platformer that's quite easy, but gets interesting with the alternative level set.
The physics side of the game is well thought out, and the puzzles do not rely on any gimmicks. It's a very relaxing game and I've had a lot of fun with it over the last few weeks. Check your humble library!

Ovládáte kuličku skrze 10 levelů a hrajete si přitom s fyzikou. Pěkná ambient hra :)

Veľmi dobre spracovaná oddychová hra s prvkami logických úloh a fyziky. Neuveriteľne krásna grafika levelov a veľmi zaujímavý soundtrack. Určite sa oplatí si zabezpečiť túto hru! :)

NightSky is a well-crafted little physics puzzler. You maipulate a small sphere through a series of 2D mazes with obstacles and puzzles.

In a single sentence: "Limbo" meets "The Ball".

The visuals are striking. It looks like perpetual sunset, with silohuettes of Edward Gorey-style monsters lurking in the background, which are actually more interesting than the game itself. Good sound, too.

Pretty good game on the cheap if you like environmental puzzlers.

NightSky is a very calm, ambient game with challenging puzzles and platforming sections. Just like other titles by Nifflas, it has a quite unique atmosphere. I definitely recommend it.

While I certainly won't say I necessarily agree with the price of this game (especially since I got it from a humble bundle pretty cheap), I will say that this is a very nice, relaxing game that's definitely worth a playthrough.

It's a very simple game, so don't expect any super in-depth challenging gameplay out of this, however there are a few moments that will require you to think a little more critically. Generally, the game remains pretty easy and just as relaxing all the way through. Definitely a good thing to do if you need to clear your mind and if you're stressed out.

The forefront visuals are very basic and unfortunately there isn't much support for high resolutions at all, so fullscreen will have you super zoomed in sadly, but for what it's worth, the backgrounds are very nice looking and are probably the strongest point of the visuals. The sound is also really nice. Not very much sound as far as what you do, but the very, very calming soundtrack that's more or less just ambience really helps add to the relaxing mood of the game.

All and all, I'll say I recommend it. Even though it's another indie puzzle game, this one has always stood out for me as one of the best designed.

I'm not normally a fan of physics-based puzzle games but this puzzle platformer is charming, smart and well-crafted. Most levels require precise platforming skills but it's still a thinking man's game. I've played other games by Nifflas and his distinct style of gameplay, graphics and music once again work in so many levels. Recommended.

P.S. You need 12 stars to unlock all the stages in the last level. You can go back anytime you want but I recommend collecting them as you progress because getting to the last level and realizing you need the stars to fully complete the game can be an unpleasant surprise (as it was for me).

Ah, physics, where would we be without it? Well, we wouldn't have this little ball beauty for a start! Or gravity. Or molecules. Or ukuleles. Or underpants. Or hotdogs. Or gangrene. Or police pension funds being suspiciously syphoned off into untraceable dummy accounts. Sorry, where was I?... Oh yeah, NightSky!...

NightSky is a physics, balling, roll-'em-up puzzler of sorts where you have to guide a ball through a wide selection of varied obstacle courses. This is primarily done by simply moving around with the arrow keys and adjusting your ball momentum and timing accordingly, as well as speeding up, slowing down or braking on the stages where it's allowed. But as it goes on, further elements are added, like parts of the environment that can be manipulated or inverting gravity or any number of marvellous contraptions that can be guided around while housing your ball. It really is amazing just how creative the game manages to consistently be through so many different areas and that it rarely ever feels repetitive despite the generous number of stages, which include an "alternative set", essentially a remixed version of every stage you've already completed, but this time ramping up the hardness on your ball.

The difficulty is judged nicely as well. It teaches you each element perfectly whilst at the same time testing you fairly with every mechanic you learn. As should always be the case in any game, if you fail here, it doesn't feel like the game's fault, and each "death" isn't a punishment on your ball, but rather a lesson to learn as you further refine your strategy and ball technique. If there is any frustration to be had it's when you get to the end of a tricky stage, have your ball suddenly drop or get your ball stuck somewhere, then have to go all the way back to the start and drag your ball the whole way through again. But between the quick restarts and well designed stages, this shouldn't be too much of a problem for anyone with any patience, and when you finally achieve success, that euphoric feeling should be ample reward enough for your struggling ball.

The look and sound of the game deserve some attention, too, as the solid black foreground of most stages set against the beautiful night-time backdrops help keep your blood pressure down during even the most difficult of ball manoeuvers. This is further reinforced by the sedate music and charming little dings and thuds of any moving parts around you. I can imagine it could have been tempting to try ramping up the tension and sense of urgency on your ball by adding more energetic music to push you forward, but I think they judged it perfectly here and are real enablers of that "one more go!" mentality you want to have in your ball games.

So for a slightly different breed of puzzler with fun, fair, challenging and yet relaxing ball play, you really need look no further than NightSky... now with 87.8% more ball jokes.
