As the days get shorter, so do the starry nights get longer with the winter solstice fast approaching. Capturing the essence of these calm and peaceful nights is Ferry Halim's beautiful Starry Night. The Flash game is a work of art, and of exemplary game design.
A floating, undulating bubble follows the mouse to your task of bouncing a bright yellow star up into the heavens to light the starry night sky. Touch every star, or miss one and lose a bit from the energy bar. Touch more than one star in a single bounce for a bonus score, and a bit of energy restored. Simple and elegant.
How I would love to play Starry Night, with my DS and its stylus, out under the stars on a crisp December night, gently bouncing the yellow star up into the night sky above. Bliss.
