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!

Very chill game with fun mechanics. Playing it on normal is fairly easy, while the alternative mode gives you a nice challenge.

I'll fully admit that platform games are not my favorite type of game, so maybe a diehard platformer fan might find this game more enjoyable. For me, however, I thought it wasn't anything enormously special. It was really relaxing and pleasant to play, but there was nothing keeping me engaged in what was happening.

Purchased as part of a bundle at some point in the distant past, excellent graphics and music, originally played on tablet/phone. Very surreal game play, relaxing infact.

That few moments after the sun sets, but darkness hasn’t arrived yet. The sky lit in vibrant colors, but everything around you unlit and shrouded in shadow. NightSky from Nicalis exists solely in that short time, a collection of puzzles centered around moving an enigmatic sphere from left to right.

The physics are top notch. You’ll guide this little sphere through dozens of stages full of clever puzzles, ingenious machines, and constantly changing (though easy-to-understand) rules. The game will often give you a new control scheme, and immediately twist it in a surprising new direction. The story is almost nonexistent, but it doesn’t have to be strong in a game like this.

There are two difficulty levels, but the game plays functionally the same in each. The main themes of each world are still present in each, though the puzzles themselves are ramped up in the alternate version. Some levels have hidden stars on them, which are required to finish the bonus levels found at the end of the game. Going back to find those stars is a fun little sidequest.

The audio is astounding in its minimalism. The music is soft and relaxing. The sound effects include waves lapping at the shoreline, the soft sound of rain on grass, and wind blowing through tree leaves. The sphere and other movable objects will make audible thunks when they hit something, giving them a weightiness that would otherwise be lacking. The sound the sphere makes when it hits something makes it seem fragile, though you can’t break it (but you can drop it down a bottomless pit).

The graphics are gorgeous, and I always had a softspot for this kind of art direction where the foreground is black and the background is lit in brilliant colors. Though sometimes it can be difficult to tell what is a stable platform and what is scenery, and more than once I dropped my sphere thinking I could land on something.

The puzzles are expertly crafted and gorgeously detailed. They progress very logically, teaching you the rules you’ll need to solve them as you go. At least in the normal difficulty, nothing was overly frustrating or unfair, and most times figuring out what I needed to do was rather simple. It was the doing of it that took a bit of time.

NightSky is a great example of minimalist game design. Nothing too flashy, but there is some real enjoyable content here. The physics come together very well and everything behaves realistically. Graphically its a real treat, and I would listen to the soundtrack every weekend to help me relax. It only takes about two hours to finish, but what a great two hours it is. Highly recommended.

NightSky is available on Steam, Humble, and 3DS.

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.

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).

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.

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.

It's a calm and enjoyable little game. It's a bit simple, but that works in its atmosphere. Ten dollars admittedly might be too high of a price, but if you can get it for less, it's not bad to play through, especially if you need to relax. It has a few good puzzling hours in it, and even the more difficult levels aren't game-ruining.

Nightsky has been 90% off during major Steam Sales, I recommend picking it up then.

In the meantime, go Google "Nifflas" (the creator) and pick up Knytt and Within A Deep Forest off his site for free - if you like those games you'll like Nightsky.
