    With a touch of endless runner, a dash of MMO, and just a sprinkling of puzzles, Sky: Children of the Light soars to lofty heights.

    Sky: Children of the Light is the latest effort from Thatgamecompany, who succeeded in creating a game that feels both like a spiritual successor to Journey and like something completely new.

    Thatgamecompany has created a great game with Sky, having a strong emphasis on discovery and friendship. The game regularly feels like an ode to Journey. The in-app purchases hardly affect this magic, but the bugs and sloppy controls sometimes do.

    Sky feels like an evolution of Journey: it shares some similarities, but also adds its own personality. They also share that magic, that something unique that you can’t find anywhere else.

    Sky : Children of the Light's composition spreads elegantly both in style, sublime and poetic, as well as in content, through traditional principles, yet harmoniously breathed into it while deeply meaningful to carry such an elevated purpose. Some touchy turbulence overshadow this ideal picture, when ThatGameCompany ventures across down to earth themes, or tends to lose its lantern among the mist created by this ever-evolving universe. Its humble existential, altruistic message stays nonetheless limpid, the economic model expressing rare generosity, like an open hand.

    Among the constellations of the mobile galaxy, Sky: Children of the Light is one of the brightest stars.

    I can’t even begin to imagine how Sky was made. It’s ultra-smooth visuals and seamless multiplayer feel like they can’t work on a mobile device, yet they do. This is indeed an achievement, and I cannot deny that. Once I start playing it though, it feels like I’m smearing a painting. Everything is so beautifully composed, and then I come along to fly into a wall or get hung up on a ledge. This happens so frequently that I don’t really like spending time in Sky, which is a real shame.

    Sky: Children of the Light. In my opinion, this game is very special for me, I started to play it when I was in grade 12 and at that moment ISky: Children of the Light. In my opinion, this game is very special for me, I started to play it when I was in grade 12 and at that moment I wanted to play a chill and beautiful game to heal my soul from playing many action games. This game has become a place where I feel comfortable. I met Japanese friends in this game who have been kind to me since I was a new player and we are still friends today.

    The story of this game is that the player takes on the role of a child from the sky. We must save the spirits we encounter during and we will also be able to visualize the memories of those spirits. During the journey, the player will be able to collect the light children and those light children will become wings, and the more light children the player collects, the more powerful the player's wings will be. Players must reach the goal of the game and be reborn again. It is a game that can be played continuously. Personally, I like this kind of storyline because it's not very complicated, it makes the players understand easily and feel into the game.

    The graphics, music, and characters in this game are absolutely beautiful. I like the view during the player's journey. It makes me feel very good and relaxed like the players were in beautiful places and having a real vacation. In some places it makes the players very excited and scared when an enemy appears because the game makes us feel like players were actually in the game. The game succeeds in designing a good community in the game as well. I used to be a lonely player when I started playing this game but I was able to complete the team missions in the game and made a lot of friends in the game as well.

    I recommend people reading this review to give this game a try. This is a really good game. If you like open world games, you'll probably like this one.

    A unique social sandbox adventure disguised as a game. The best proof that mobile games can be art too. Astonishingly.

    Sky: Children of the Light
    Magic.
    Sky Children of the light is a free to play 3 hour long advemnture game all about exploration, and it is pure beauty, Sky comes from the same team that worked on flower and journey, and let me tell you.. the music, the visuals, its feels like youre immersed inside of a movie..Sky is absolutely gorgeous, I couldn’t help but smile is id fly through the air, being carried by the wind, while this beautiful music plays. in Sky children of the light youll be running ar flying around, finding these lost souls, upgrading your wings, and moving onto the next section, but around you are other players in real time, trying to do the same, so youl lbe able to make friends, interact with them, help guide them to spirits, I felt so much joy running through this world.
    My only complaint is that sky does the annoying colectathon thing at the end, of oh no you didn’t find enough of these golden children, go back and replay the levels until you’ve found enough..
    Other than that, Sky Children of light is great, its mesmerizing, so relaxing.. no combat, no real enemies, just explore, unlock cosmetics and emotes, make friends with random people, take in your surroundings, breathe, and enjoy the ride.
    I give Sky: Children of the Light
    an 8/10

    From any other game company this would have scored slightly higher from me but once you acknowledge that this is from the people that broughtFrom any other game company this would have scored slightly higher from me but once you acknowledge that this is from the people that brought us Journey then its a huge letdown. Where that games beauty was in its simplicity, this just comes across as a confusing mess. I'm sure they started out designing this for consoles as the controls on a mobile are frustrating and then there is the microtransactions ... really, thatgamingcompany did you really need to go down this route?
    On the plus side, it looks pretty, the music is nice and there is a nice idea in there somewhere. And of course its initially free to play so at least you can try it without parting with any money. Lets hope they have a MAJOR overhaul before they port it to consoles.
