Nintendo fans have been waiting a long time for NightSky, and they won't be disappointed. The finished product is gorgeous, flawlessly designed and bracingly atmospheric, with perfect controls, clever puzzles, and an endlessly evolving play style that will never see you solving the same puzzle the same way twice. Hidden stars, a locked world and an advanced difficulty lend the experience significant replayability, but even if it offered only a single playthrough, it's not an experience that could soon be forgotten. At last, the 3DS eShop has its masterpiece.

Ultimately, I may have mentioned multiple times that x or y was my favourite part, but in the end I really enjoyed everything this game had to offer. There are so many ideas crammed inside this admittedly small game that you’ll never get bored, but you’ll be left wanting more. At ten dollars, the price isn’t exactly cheap for such a short game (it took me about three and a half hours to find all the stars and beat the main game, although there is an alternate mode with a slightly harder challenge), but the experience is so different and fun that it’s worth looking past its shortcomings. It definitely deserves to be played by as many people as possible.

I really liked NightSky, but it's got one little flaw: the two modes (Normal and Alternative) are all there is to the game. This game doesn't seem to be made for multiplayer, but I'm surprised there's no puzzle editor, as I can only imagine what someone could create with everything in this game at their disposal.

GamezGeneration (8.5 out of 10) (85%)

NightSky ist auf dem 3DS ein unglaublich fesselndes und gleichzeitig entspannendes Geschicklichkeitserlebnis, das den doch recht hohen Preis von 9,99 Euro absolut rechtfertigt. Das Spiel ist durch und durch gelungen und punktet mit einer optimalen Lernkurve, einer fantastischen AtmosphĂ€re samt Optik und viel Spielspaß. Wer nicht immer auf Highscorejagd gehen will oder das nĂ€chste Königreich vor dem drohenden Untergang schĂŒtzen mag, der sollte sich die 3DS Version von NightSky im Nintendo eShop unbedingt genauer ansehen – denn selbst mich als Geschicklichkeitsmuffel hat NightSky absolut gepackt!

„NightSky“ verzaubert den Spieler durch eine einzigartige AtmosphĂ€re und entfĂŒhrt ihn in wundersame Traumwelten, die stets fĂŒr neue Überraschungen sorgen. Auch spielerisch weiß der Puzzler zu begeistern und sorgt durch stets wechselnde Bedingungen fĂŒr neue Herausforderungen und RĂ€tselstoff. Nicht nur Puzzle-Fans sollten bei diesem atmosphĂ€rischen Titel auf ihre Kosten kommen.

If you can break through the periodic pain barrier that comes with such exacting physics-based challenges, you'll be able to bask in the warm glow of manly gaming satisfaction. And with around six hours' worth of it to roll through, it'll put hairs on your chest. Not so good if you're a lady, obviously.

Meristation (8 out of 10) (80%)

Nightsky es original, divertido y ofrece un reto razonable, ademås de una buena cantidad de contenido que viene acompañado de una excelente propuesta audiovisual. Su precio actual de 10 euros es bastante razonable para lo que se ofrece y sin duda harå las delicias de todo aquel al que le gusta algo diferente, ya sea en cuanto a mecånicas como en cuanto a estética. Los puzzle sin embargo no son terriblemente originales y mås de una vez el reto serå el de ejecutar bien los movimientos para que la esfera siga su camino; hay momentos en el que el juego puede resultar algo frustrante, y a buen seguro que no es plato del gusto de todos. Afortunadamente hay una demo disponible para descargar en la misma pågina oficial de la compañía para los inseguros y ademås en la pågina del autor se pueden descargar sus proyectos gratuitos, de modo que para los que quieran conocer ahora a Nicklas Nygren y su obra, esta es una excelente oportunidad.

Personally, I would have liked to to see a little more story interspersed throughout the game, but I also respect the creative decision to keep the narrative to a minimum. Though the price may seem a little steep for a game of this complexity and length, there is no denying that NightSky accomplishes just about everything it sets out to do.

IGN (7.5 out of 10) (75%)

NightSky is a nice place to visit. The physics-based gameplay is clever, but the real draws are the beautiful scenery and the ambient electronic soundtrack. It's recognizable at a glance, which isn't something that can be said for every game.

Gaming Age (B) (75%)

The game won’t take an exceptionally long time to beat, and outside of some frustrating gameplay segments, you’ll be able to figure out the majority of the puzzles with little to no help. There is some added value present with secret rooms to explore and discover scattered about the 10 stages, which can take a fair amount of effort to find, so if nothing else that adds a little more time on the play clock. At the moment there’s little on the E-Shop that feels quite like what NightSky has to offer, so I do feel like it’s worth checking out, even if it’s not quite a flawless experience.

Un trĂšs bon jeu, pas cher, et qui vaut le coup rien que pour son ambiance apaisante. Un must have dans une ludothĂšque remplie de jeux bourrins, un peu de douceur ne fait de mal Ă  personne.

Wer seine Hirnmuskeln trainieren möchte, wird mit NightSky unterfordert. Die Mischung aus Jump&Run und Puzzles fĂŒhrt zu eingleisig und problemlos um die Welt. Nicht einmal strebsame Entdecker werden fĂŒr ihren Fleiß belohnt. Dabei mangelt es nicht an Ideen, denn ob man einfach nur rollt, durch IrrgĂ€rten fliegt oder gar flippert: Die physikalischen Spielereien des kleinen Abenteuers sind immer einen Aha-Effekt wert. Die große StĂ€rke ist aber das bewusste Erleben der stimmungsvollen Kulissen, fĂŒr die jeder Fels und jedes Wesen wie von Hand ausgeschnitten wurde - um sie auf die lebendigen Postkarten einer außergewöhnlichen Weltreise zu kleben.

NintendoWorldReport (6 out of 10) (60%)

The wait for NightSky on a Nintendo platform has been long, and, unfortunately, may not have been worth it. While the graphical and aural presentation is worth celebrating, the actual gameplay comes up short, feeling like the primitive form of a much better game.

Gameplay (Benelux) N/A

Echt baanbrekend is NightSky niet, daarvoor zijn we al te veel van de gameplay in andere games als Super Mario Bros. en Gumboy Crazy Adventures tegengekomen, maar de combinatie vann de gameplay en de bijzonder knappe sfeer maken van NightSky een game die je zeker eens moet uitproberen.
