WHAT IS THE BIRD OF LIGHT?

Finding the answer to this question will take skill, strategy, intelligence and insight. You will need to become One with the Path.

THE STORY OF TARA

Tara, an eight-year-old girl, is something of a loner whose family moves to a farm from the city to improve the quality of their lives. Once in the country, Tara soon makes friends with all the animals on the farm. Everything goes well until one day, her animal friends start mysteriously disappearing one at a time. Tara struggles to understand what's going on, but luckily, Tara and the animals have a friend and guide in the Bird of Light, who talks to them and helps to make sense of it all.

The gameplay is an abstract representation of Tara's search for The Truth.

An average but enjoyable experience for speedrunning

Bird of Light is an endless type of game, you run till you lose. There are plenty of platforming, puzzles, and speed running to be had. The story is very forgettable. Thankfully, the gameplay holds the game up by itself. There are 21 levels but each one sports a noticeable increase in difficulty. You have to literally plan your path or route in the levels to avoid mistakes in order to earn badges and more. The only breaks you might have in the game is when you pause the game for a break or a look at the map. Visually, Bird of Light is simple and not very distinctive aside from the brightness and varied colors. The environment art becomes repetitive over time. For what it is, Bird of Light provided an enjoyable experience for the price.

Enjoyable endless runner with an art style that won't appeal to everyone

Bird of Light is an endless runner style game (platformer where you can't stop moving) that allows you to view a level map before and after starting to choose your path through the environment, the game was formerly a mobile title. A key is needed to exit the level and levels have different goals such as reaching the end, reaching the end in a certain amount of type, or collecting all the items. Coins are also found on each map and a certain amount is needed to unlock the next level. The story involves tracking down your missing animal friends, nothing you would play the game over just there to give a reason to what you are doing. Graphics and music are cheerful and colorful but simple, neither are going to be seen as a very attractive feature by most people, it is more likely to appeal to young children. While the art might appeal to a younger audience the gameplay is decent for those looking for low priced game like this and the difficulty does start to ramp up.

A twist in the genre

I was kind of surprised about this game. I was expecting the standar platformer game with some puzzles based on physics but what I found was an unique game with some interesting new mechanics never seen before. Well, the game sometimes reminds me of titles like Drawn to Life. Games where you have to create your own paths/platforms to continue. This one is a twist in the genre, and offers a 2D kind of map that comes to life in 3D for you to progress with the story. Well, story is not the most important thing in this game, but it is there. We've played a lot of games with no sense for narrative and story, but this one cares about what's behind the whole game. This is a puzzle game with many different levels and ways to solve each one of them. It is a fun game (sometimes challenging) that will take you more than expected. If you are tired of the same kind of games, this one may be the one you've been looking for.
