A relaxing, beautiful looking game with impressive level design
Starting this challenge was a great idea, I’ve played a few games now that I wouldn’t have glanced at before because I’ve been too busy playing the latest open world survival or AAA title. It’s fun!
NightSky is a simple platform game where you roll about as a ball, trying to get to the end of the level. Easy right?
It starts of simple, bouncing over a bumpy floor, flying off to the side of the screen, but progressively gets more technical and introduces physics challenges which are always fun to beat.
