Short but fun

kirbman101 | Dec. 6, 2014 | Review of Light

Light is a short and simple 2D stealth game.

It's fairly easy, and gives you the option of completing most stages how you like. You can avoid killing completely or kill everyone. You can go sneak around undetected or make a run for it.

In each of the 12 levels, you are tasked with completing 1-4 objectives before exiting the level. The only fail condition is that you get killed by one of the guards. The whole game, and all Steam achievements, can be completed in about an hour.

The graphics are sleek and simple, and if you don't like the effects, you can turn them off in the options menu. The music is good too, which is great, because the developers include the soundtrack for free.

Great RPG, but has trouble running on modern systems

(I also published this review to Steam, Metacritic, and HowLongToBeat)

Overall, this is a great game. Full voice acting and impressive graphics for 1999 combine with an exciting story and interesting character development to make a memorable experience. Fans of the early Final Fantasy games should truly enjoy this game.

Its biggest flaw is that the combat system can become boring or even tedious after a while. I also found it frustrating that enemy health bars are hidden by default. If either of those bother you too much, there are cheat codes (true to any 90s game) to fix both of those problems.

Disclaimer: I played the disk version of this game, and purchased the Steam version because I lost the disk. I've heard rumors of bugs in the Steam version, but I emailed Topware support and they said that they were working to resolve them. I couldn't get it to work at all in Windows 8.1 though.
