They say everything is better with a friend, so the sequel to the original shadowy puzzle platformer has started up the buddy system. Using light to reveal or banish walls and hazards, you must make your way to the exit in each level, turning on light to lure your newfound companion to press switches and more for you.

4 levels in and already I can't get any further without consulting some kind of walkthrough. This is a bad sign.

I'm sorry, but I'm going to have a fit. Why oh why do game designers fail to give separate control over music and FX? Am I the only one who cannot handle the constant, repetitive music, but also likes FX? I ... just ... don't ... understand.


I found the music to be rather relaxing...anyone know where I can find a copy of it?



The box does not drop through the platform when it passes under the light


Level 4 "cheat":

Jump up to the ladder (don't even need to wait for the platform, actually). Push a block down to where you started, then down onto the spikes. Drop down onto the block; from there, it's a pretty easy jump to the exit.

Definitely not how the level is supposed to be solved, though.



What are you talking about? The box ALWAYS drops when it passes under the light.


@ Onyx Mouse ... you could email the developer. The address is in the credits.

Rygar and yaddab, if I may add to this conversation:

There are two boxes. One drops at the light. The other doesn't.


Ehh, it took about twenty minutes for me to beat without aid of a walkthrough. It was short, and maybe a little on the easy side. The puzzles were pretty good, a bit more timing based than the previous Night Lights.

The game had the same problem as Night Lights, too:

NO ENDING? D: I was hoping for at least a "Game Complete" screen. Maybe the blue headed protagonist could befriend the shadow guy?

A comment about level 12...

Did anyone have to use the lamp in that level? All I did was move the light and the shadow followed it onto the switch below, which opened the door. Didn't even have to use it. Huh.


@ Onyx Mouse
Usually it's Tom Black, the developer of the game who composes the music himself. He did it for the first opus: where the music is for me even better than this one.


I played the first game and I finished it over 50 times! Night Lights series are one of the best puzzle platformer series that I ever seen!!


The first music is available on Newgrounds; if you visit the Night Lights game page and look at the credits on the left panel, there's a link to the track which you can download from the developer for free. This game, however, does not appear to be on Newgrounds, so I'm not sure where a copy of the audio can be downloaded, if possible.
