Gleamlight is one of those titles that visually sucks you in pretty easily. The sort of stained glass quality to elements of the environment mixed with the whimsical nature of your character and many of the creatures is easy to get into. That said, lacking in a story or much direction the enjoyment sort of stays at that surface level, with little to keep you engaged. Sure, the action platforming action is at least adequate (if a little wonky in spots and generic) for getting some enjoyment but there’s just nothing here that jumps out as particularly special. If you enjoy the visuals and are just looking for a decent platformer with a minimal move set (which doesn’t help with it only feeling average) it may not be a bad choice but there are plenty of arguably better platformers of all price ranges on the system already.
