About

For progress, for humanity… for science! Responsible for many of mankind’s greatest achievements, science has done many wonderful things. But experiments to harness the power of shadow? If it sounds dangerous, that’s probably because it is. Especially if something goes wrong and harmless light becomes the deadliest thing imaginable…

Set in a world where the rules of light and shadow no longer apply, One Upon Light sees you exploring the ruined remains of the Aurora Science’s labs in search of answers. What happened here? Who are you? And, most importantly, will things ever be the same again? The answers are there to find but whatever you do, don’t go into the light…

  • Top-down puzzle gameplay sees you using the unique properties of light and shadow to explore and overcome obstacles.
  • Use switches, blocks, carts and other techniques to create shadows, blocking out the light that will otherwise end your adventure…
  • Use the power of the Shadow Echo to ‘record’ shadows as they appear, then use them to progress even if the real shadow vanishes.
  • Visually charming and inspired by classic black and white cartoons, One Upon Light is a true test of skill, brains and photophobia!

One Upon Light reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Interesting puzzle. It is Made in black and white colors. Not obsessive music. Exciting levels.. It is possible to Play) But It is pleasant only to 19 level) as 19 and 20 level-it is no longer a puzzle, and a finger and a nerve. A Very strong, fearless hassle) All actions need to be reconcile to the millimeter and in a strictly defined second. So, if you do not want to bother (oh, and it will have to do, if you want to go through the game to the end), if you have very little patience (to many dozens of times to pass the final levels), this game is not for you) And this is not to mention the bugs.. They did not meet much, but they interfere with the play. The mechanism Is turned off to spin as it should after the death of the character and have to pass the level anew (and in no case to die in that place!)... That Shadow device does not work as it should (simply does not fix a shadow).. The colleague of the scientist, suddenly, turns out where it should not be, and is buggy (harmless Baghuechka).. And in general-a good toy)

One Upon Light-a high-quality indie puzzle, which, as I think, will appeal to fans of unusual puzzles, but everything in order! The story of the game tells us the story of a scientist, he wants to find out what happened in the laboratory in which he woke up and why he can not be in the light. Riddles that you have to solve, are delivered on the fact that the light is deadly for you and you can move only in the shadows. The Game consists of 20 levels that pass for 5-6 hours, it is both a plus and minus the game. On the one hand it does not have time to bored, on the other, want more interesting and confusing puzzles. History is shown to us by means of newspapers which you pick up at the end of level. The Complexity of the puzzles at the middle level, if you think about it, you will quickly find a solution. In General, the game is very friendly in terms of complexity, it will appeal to both players tempted and amateurs. Stylistically The game also looks beautiful, with its black-white tones, which certainly convey the atmosphere of the game. Technically, the game has no problems, everything works smoothly, the control of the keyboard is good, without complaints. Criticism is to the music part of the game. There is simply no Music, except for the last level. Otherwise, it is The sound of steps, working mechanisms and different kind of environment. Pros: + Gameplay + Puzzle + Plot + Originality + Stylistics Cons:-Duration-Music That We have in a dry balance: a Good puzzle for a couple of evenings, with interesting gameplay, storyline and originality. Adequate complexity, which allows a greater number of players to enjoy it to the fullest. It is a Pity that the game is not popular with users, because it really turned out good and interesting. It is safe to say that she deserves to Be acquainted with her. Total: 81/100 Recommended.
