Alley is an atmospheric adventure game that sees you playing as a young girl trapped in an inescapable nightmare. Surrounded by her worst fears, every step forward for her is a huge challenge that you'll help guide her through using some simple controls and your own smarts to outwit the many traps and shadows that lie ahead.
While most of the game is fairly slow and relaxed, there will be times when you're going to have to react quickly to traverse the maze safely. For example, spider webs can prove deadly if you can't escape them in time.
The further you get, the higher your score will grow, so there's an element of high-score chasing fun to it all despite the mellow tone. Progress is made whenever you find a new memory or star, and there are also helpful items to collect along the way such as shields and 'jars of starts', which I'm assuming act as an extra life.
You'll be able to disguise yourself in a total of 29 distinct outfits. These can be bought using the stars found throughout each level. Using your handy dandelion, you might just find hidden scenes – and even a bonus stage – that flesh out the game's world.
