A cool little abstract with a really unique visual style that it utilizes in various extremely lovely ways. Gameplay is free-flowing and more concerned with being fun than difficult.

Like many people, my age, my first interaction with the Nights franchise was the cameo in Sonic Adventure. As a kid, I had no idea what the heck a Nights was and why the music was so goddamn good. Most of my life later and I finally got around to playing the original game and it was better than I expected. Not only is it incredibly charming with its brightly colored levels and amazing soundtrack but the gameplay, even without a tutorial, is quick to pick up on and very satisfying to get the hang of. Mastering the movement to the point where you can quickly guide through the levels was a very magical moment experience.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this game to anyone as I feel it encapsulates a time when games weren't bogged down by all the changes in the industry over the past years. Despite its short length, the game captures childlike wonder in a way that leaves me smiling every time I play it. It really is something special.

this is the ana game. if you want a game that encompasses me as a person, it’s this one. thank you sega

Specifically played the PC remastered version, but this game was a lot better and fun to play than I initially expected! Some awkward collision moments and distance rendering moments but everything else was great! The feel of the game, music, gameplay, and the controls felt great! The story touched me a bit too in some way, surprisingly.

really pretty, great art direction, impressive for its hardware, bangin' soundtrack and enticing gameplay. movement can be hard to figure out and there's some parts that are frustrating but the game is still wonderful.
