About

NightSky is an 2D action-puzzle indie video game with elements of platforming. The game offers uniquely challenges in various colorful worlds. There is a mechanic in the game which lets player to move a sphere using realistic physics. Every world in the game is broken into different areas which the player has to explore. The game is known for its surrealism and the experimental jazz music soundtrack helps to deliver the weirdness for the game as well as weird yet imaginative visuals.

NightSky reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
NightSky is a game reminiscent of LIMBO, but is completely different in almost every other Respect. (This Review is not a Comparison to LIMBO!) + You can choose the difficult Difficulty level from The start and don't have to play it through to normal beforehand (which I recommend anyway) + The Tutorial has succeeded well + Atmospheric Music->-Sometimes a little too loud + Nice sounds + Very Simpel (You need A maximum of 7 Buttons, 4 of which are for the actual Game) + For In between, but can also be played through in the second + imaginative-> + including the Vehicles and their Control->-In some I only Came up with a try that they can do more at the Touch of a button on "A" more You can do and sometimes only get on with it + Levels differ very much and you can recognize them directly by it alone when you are in a new Level-> + The Backgrounds look good and sometimes have nice details-> + In the unlockable Bonus levels There are many interesting Approaches to a possible second Part + I could even discover a Allusion. A World is called "Perpetuum Factory" and the Levels also look accordingly + Basically you don't have to think, but even that there is every now and then + You can restart levels easily and quickly + Things are Area overriding. (You can take Stuff within one level from one Area (from mostly 3) to another and when you're in another, things move on in the first, Etc.) + Everything runs completely liquid + The Credits are Optional-> + But also very well implemented-> + All of it comes back to the Beginning of the Game + There are secrets in the Form of Stars that also bring Something (You can use it to unlock small Bonus levels, which I am more likely to use than ei See a Demo for a possible second Part. They are not demanding, but Only show a lot of Ingenuity)->-The Levels in which there are secrets are marked->-If you pay attention, you quickly know where they are. At the Beginning a Story is built up-> +-This is rather moderate, But you should not use it any more Rwarten->-Which is not otherwise addressed in any Way-It is short (About 3 Hours on normal)-> + If you play through it at both levels of difficulty (which I recommend), you get a total of About three Times the Time. (About 6 Hours on Alternative)-On normal it is very easy-> + On alternatively but correspondingly difficult-control not to be converted-> + But you get used to it quickly->-However, it can still happen that you accidentally get on the wrong Button-Generally none Optionsen/Settings-If you shrink the almost screen-sized Window, it won't be taken over when it reboots-when I first wanted to close it, It crashed off Overall, NightSky is a good and recommended Game. You can turn it on in between, but you can also play through it in a Row. Due to the simple Control and the easy-to-understand target, it is accessible and offers about 9 Hours of Gameplay when played through it at both Levels of Difficulty, including bonus levels and the associated Search of the Stars. I hope for more of the same for the Future.

No bosses, time limit or other stress but just nice puzzle by rolling, great this game. Beautiful graphics and every game you know will surprise you time and again with new challenges that require new solutions. Definitely worth downloading! And especially nice when you've finally played it.

Useful port of the PC-designed game by Nicklas "Nifflas" Nygren, which is worthwhile for its graphics and music alone. Unfortunately, the default swipe control does not speak too much, making some levels too heavy or unplayable (like Old Ruins # 11). It's best to switch to "Tilt", so you have a much more natural feeling of the rolling ball! Apart from that clear recommendation.

excellent at 89 cents, nothing to say at 1.79, I was putting the nose 269, but now you put it at 4 and 50? Are we joking? apart from the fact that it is not worth it, but when will you stop to increase the price? apart from this beautiful idea, the controls are well connected. sometimes a little frustrating, because the save points are every three patterns, but often the first two are easy and the third is not, so you have to do the first ones over and over, in advanced play. not very long, but certainly entertains, recommended

Without hsiter the best game on iphone I have ever played: the scenery is superb, the gameplay is absolutely great and very very varied, we are surprised from beginning to end, no table is like another and we are going to surprises in surprises. Perfectly cared, we feel that every detail has been worked carefully. The difficulty is very well dose, the longevity excellent, and all the atmosphere is potty, full of charm and the music is very beautiful. In short, in a word; a masterpiece

This little game is excellent! It's all good: we have to roll a ball through landscapes, all very simple decorations, but perfectly realized. You have to make him cross obstacles, obtain proofs, jump, climb, fall at the right time, learn how to use tools ... We must progress in the levels, go further by learning from what we have already achieved. Superb! But a big problem: I am regularly reduced to previous levels already successful. Apparently after a "certain" time without playing, a "certain" break time. And I do not know why. I searched. I did not find. And it's terribly annoying. gave away want to give up. What will I do, because I do not intend to waste my time. Pity ! Too bad !
