    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.

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

I was trying to reach a high place without success, and a player became my friend to give me her hand and fly me there. One day another one give me a tour around and island, another I played hide and seek.

    The social part is perfect for introverts or calm people. The scenaris are beautiful and breath taking. For a free mobile game, this is the best. I also loved Journey, and this is very similar. I recommend it 100%

    Even the music is amazing. I love it.

    Such a great game, really. I mean, why drop points based on their previous "Journey" game?
    The game is GOOD on its own.

Therefore will instantly notThe vast majority of complete negative reviews r coming from individuals who clearly don’t like mobile games. Therefore will instantly not like this game at the moment. So avoid those idiotic individuals and play it for what it’s worth. It is without a doubt true most immersive mobile game on the market. If mobile is not your thing, give it time. It will be coming to console and pc soon. Just bc it’s mobile does not warrant the ZERO/10 that half of this close minded individuals r giving it. The MTX in game r NOT necessary to progress. Do they suck being in the game..:yes. But get over it. It’s the way of the world, people buy them, devs will continue to put them in the games we all love. This game deserves better then what these children r putting up here. Expand

I never expected to play something this interesting on my Iphone. My Iphone is not worthy of this game (there will be slowdowns & buggy moments) but all the same it is wonderful. It made me smile. Like the first time I played “Ocarina of Time”, I fell into the fantasy world of this game, which I wish there was more of in gaming (and life in general.) I don’t mean to overhype it, but I show respect where it is due. If you liked “Flower” or “Journey”, you will love this game. Expand

    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.
