    $10 is a steep price for this 2D platform puzzler. Very basic, no complexity, no story, no plot, no replayability, no innovation--Sonic-like in some respects.

    i bought this at 90% off on steam yesterday (summer sale 2013) and this game is awful. do not buy this at its full price (10$) it is not worth it. here's the pros and cons of the game- pros: -good soundtrack, very relaxing -cute graphics style cons: -horrible controls on keyboard and gamepad alike (without the option to rebind anything) -bad level design for the most part. keep in mind that this is a 2D platformer, meaning that level design is of great importance. but this game, more often than not, will punish you for making a very small mistake. and with the lack of logical physics, you´ll make many.
    -basically no menu
    -its a short game with no replayability, and therefor is not worth the price.

    all in all, it's okay for 1 buck, which is what i payed for it, but for any other price, this game sucks.

    This game looks pretty nice. It's calming, soothing, but even all those ocean sound isn't enough to calm your rage once you realize you paid $10 for this basic mini-game collection.
    I say mini-games, because every other stage your ball has a different ability. Sometimes your ball can fly, sometimes your ball can roll extremely fast. There's no real set physics here, and the puzzles are
    extremely amateur. The platforming could get tricky, but even the hardest levels can be bested in a couple minutes. There's no real challenge to this game.
    To put it simply, it's $10 to see a slideshow. I wouldn't exactly call this a game; it's nice looking, but there's hardly any real game play mechanics.

    NightSky delivers a short but sweet physics puzzle experience. [April 2011, p.76]

    A little gem of a puzzler. [Mar 2011, p.69]

    Dark environment and traditional music are great backdrops for this relaxed physical arcade. It's not enough to be the game of the year but Nifflas did not disappoint us. [Issue#201]
