Description:

NightSky is an action-puzzle game that offers an ambient gameplay experience unlike any other; cerebral challenges fill uniquely designed picturesque worlds. Each of these worlds is broken into different areas in which the player must maneuver a sphere by using realistic physics to advance. There are no enemies, no bosses, and no violence in NightSky.

An intuitive experience is friendly for casual and mainstream gamers. NightSky also offers a formidable challenge for serious players, with an unlockable Master mode. The original soundtrack by experimental jazz musician Chris Schlarb will further heighten the surreal experience.

Lots of surprises as one rolls along. - At first I thought I had the problem that the 1 star reviewer had: The game loads and stop at the Nighsky screen and nothing else happened. No action, just music and black sky. No mousing. Ah - it didn't work using my mouse or pen, just the keyboard. After using the arrow up/down keys I "scrolled" down the black screen further and then saw the options. Selected Slot 1 & keyed Return to start the game. Using the Settings option, I still could not use my mouse. No biggy, playing by keyboard was easy enough. I just had to get used to it again. (iMac 10.6.8) A delightful challenging game. Rolling from one screen to the next, I got good at putting the brakes on suddenly :)

Don't buy this game - I have a new iMac running 10.8.2. I usually only buy games with a lot of high reviews but this time i didn't. This game doesn't work for me. It loads and stops at a Save Load screen and nothing else happens. There is sound but no action. I have sent two messages through the support link on the App Store with no response. This review seems to be the only way to jostle the seller. Update: I went to the App Store to see if this app had been updated. The price tag said "Update". I downloaded the update. No change. It still doesn't work. Don't buy it until they fix it. If they fix it, I will update the review.

Very cool. Nice change of pace. - I wasn't sure what to expect with this game, but am really enjoying it. It's intriguing how such a simple interface can solve some very interesting problems

Review by 3L Law Student

Well done! - It’s a fascinating game and beautifully made. It’s an easy game to get lost in because the settings are so beautiful. Makes you want to roll through the puzzles slower. There are a lot of unexpected mechanics that make this game tricky, and they are all beautifully done. Most important for a game like this, the physics are spot-on. Sound effects and music are great. This is a beautiful puzzler that feels like an adventure game. I highly recommend it, and would love to see more games from this developer.
