Info over het spel

Genomineerd als IGF Seamus McNally-finalist, is NightSky een sfeervol actie-puzzelspel die een gameplay-ervaring als geen ander aanbiedt—hersenkrakende uitdagingen vullen uniek ontworpen schilderachtige werelden. De speler moet een bol manoeuvreren door middel van realistische fysica om door te gaan; elk van deze werelden is opgebroken in verschillende gebieden. De originele soundtrack door experimentele jazzmuzikant Chris Schlarb zal de surrealistische ervaring verder versterken.

Belangrijkste onderdelen:

  • 2D platform/puzzel-gameplay
  • Geavanceerd 2D physics model
  • Meerdere moeilijkheidsgraden met unieke topografie
  • 11 massieve levels, elk met uitgebreide gebieden om te verkennen
  • Meerdere “voertuigen”, elk met specifieke toepassingen en dynamics physics
  • Verdere geheimen en dingen om te ontgrendelen

Normally, a $10 game that I spend under 3 hours on would need to be really good in order to get a thumbs-up from me, and NightSky is not a really good game. It's not bad as indie puzzle platformers go, don't get me wrong, but a lot of the levels feel like one-off proof-of-concept gimmicks. (Admittedly, I only played Normal and then enough of Alternative to realize that it was basically just the same levels reworked to be jerkish, for the most part.)

That said, the reason this is getting a thumbs up is basically just that it was full of neat gimmick levels and the art, sound, and level design really clicked with me as something neat. So, I dunno. It's not a glowing recommendation, more just a "buy it if you really like puzzle platformers, ridiculous vehicles, or the artstyle" recommendation.

A nice little game about rolling around as a ball. Very relaxing, some nice variety to the levels. It's sort of like Metroid but only the morphball parts, which is fine by me.

A thumbs down is probably a bit harsh to be honest.

It's your standard Indie 2D physics plaformer fare, although the puzzles seldom feel satisfying to complete, more a relief than anything else.

It certainly is a nice looking little game and the music and sound effects are beautifully done, but the way the game blocks your progress so close to the end, forcing you to replay earlier levels is unforgivable in my book.

At full price its a definite no-no, but check your library it may even be there already. Piggy-backing it's way in there on the back of some Humble Bundle. If it's there it's worth a go. If its not, sadly you're not missing much.

Check out my video if you're still not convinced. Now with added Scotsman.

The presentation is lazy and limited. The settings made available to the user are minimal to nearly none. The "widescreen" setting is not widescreen at all, as the size of the game's screen is still very small and surrounded by large black borders. The graphics are also of the most minimal efforts that are found in free Flash games for PC or phones. The so-called ambient music is barely noticeable and does not add to the overall experience in any way. The game mechanics are only mildly interesting or amusing, and the game world and design are uninspired and uncreative. Guiding the ball around the levels is unsatisfying and dull. The game play is so vacuous and boring, that I would find it hard to believe that someone would actually be interested in such a dead and valueless activity after about one hour. Every aspect of the game is so breathless, numb, flat, lackluster, and muted. The physics of the game are not interesting nor exciting in any way, and the overall atmosphere is so indifferent and apathetic, that you will be wondering why you should be spending any time at all with this poor attempt at a game. NightSky's sale description lists it as an "action-puzzle" game, set in "picturesque worlds". This couldn't be farther from the truth. NightSky does not involve any action whatsoever, and the game world is the opposite of picturesque, as it is as good as dead. The asking price is borderline insanity, as the developers are clearly overpricing an
obviously poorly designed and low-grade game.

NightSky is mediocre.
