Sky: Children of the Light

Sky: Children of the Light is a very fun game. 

The stars have fallen. The darkness has conquered the light. You have a character in the game which is trying to help bring back the light. You must overcome many difficult challenges as your character pushes onward in the dark, guided by you. Who knows if you will succeed? Or will you become a star like the rest before you complete your mission? Play the game to find out!

This game is such an amazing game because of the storyline, which plays a big part in Sky: Children of the Light. However, since the graphics are so convincing, they use up a lot of your battery. So, you can change the graphics resolution so that it does not use up as much of your battery.

Tips and Tricks: Keep in mind that the Children of the Light, shown by golden glowing children throughout the levels, are usually found in places off the main path, or places which are hard to reach. Don’t be afraid to explore! Even if you get lost, you can release a call to help you find your way back. You can do this by tapping on your character to release a small call. You can also hold your character until they crouch, then release them for a much louder call. Your call will show you where the temple is, or where nearby players are. A call is extremely useful.

Candles: Every day there will be two candles in front of the door to a level. In that level, there are big bundles of candles. By lighting them, you can get candle wax, which is later used to forge a candle. If you can’t see two candles in front of a door/portal, that may be because you have not unlocked the level which has those candles. You can use candles to purchase hearts to buy things like capes, or you can use candles to buy other cosmetic items like hairstyles or spells. 

Seasons: Every couple months, a new season will begin. You can find the seasonal spirits and live through their memories, earning a new emote, stance, or call. During every season, you can find seasonal candles throughout the levels and light them for some seasonal candle wax. A seasonal candle can be used to buy cosmetics or level up emotes from a seasonal spirit. Each season is different, so seasonal candles reset every season. If you can’t get one of the seasonal spirits before they leave, sometimes some seasonal spirits from past seasons will come back to visit, known as a traveling spirit. 

Energy: You will receive more energy from children of the light, which are golden glowing children throughout all of the levels. Land roughly, hitting a rough surface, being exposed to rain, infected water, or being attacked by crabs or krill are all ways to drain your energy and to even lose the children of the light which are with you. 

Once all of your energy is gone, your light begins to drain, indicated by a flame symbol at the top of your screen. After your light drains, if you still continue hurting your character, you can lose winged light. Prevent this by trying to always have as much energy and light as possible.

So, all in all, Sky: Children of the Light is a great game. I would strongly recommend you to try out the game. I still enjoy playing the game, although I have already finished it! It is so fun to explore the varying areas.

Rime Game Review

Are you looking for a fun game to play? Rime is an amazing game. It combines logical puzzles and a fantastical world to create a mysterious island with many surprises and mysteries.

First of all, there is a great storyline. The story is one of the most important parts of the game. Rime features a young boy, waking up to find himself stranded on a deserted island. He is desperate to get back home, but also curious. You are the young boy, and you need to solve all of the puzzles and games on the island in order to get home. You have nothing but a small fox who sometimes appears for a short period of time and small clues along the way. Will you ever get home?

The game has very nice graphics which look realistic. Natural sounds flood the area around you, and there is no one to hear or see. All of the sounds seem very 3D, as if you are actually there yourself. Slowly, the logical puzzles you have to solve get harder as you go along. The adventure itself is very thrilling and exciting. There are different parts to the game. Each part has a new scene where the adventure takes place. 

I would recommend this game to anyone who is looking for an exciting, adventurous game to play. It keeps you entertained, and you never get bored! 

Also, there are lots of collectible items which can be found throughout the game, so keep an eye out for those! The collectible items you find can be used to unlock cool things. Outfits are one example. Although at the beginning of the game you receive an outfit, there are also different outfits which you can find. Having different outfits could be useful, and also give your character a different look. You can also collect toys, emblems, lullabies, and keyholes. Most of these are hidden in places which are not easy to reach or not on the main path. 

Another important thing to know is that there are certain places which are ‘points of no return’. So before moving on in the game, you can explore the area you are in. You could also go back and explore the area after completing the game, so don’t worry if you couldn’t find something you were looking for. 

During the game, you will encounter a little fox. She will guide you through the game. Also, if you are stuck, this little creature will chatter in your direction. If this happens, follow her! She is the way the game gives you hints if you are stuck. The fox disappears most of the time, once you have either followed her or done what she was trying to tell you to do. 

Overall, Rime is a great game. I think it is an exciting game to play. It improves your logical and reasoning skills, and it is also really fun. I would recommend you to try this game.
