Gleamlight's art style is beautiful and immersive, but the combat here is slow and tedious. With no story to latch onto it all just feels shallow. Even though the game is extremely short, your time and money are better spent elsewhere on other games in this genre.

Gleamlight is worse than the majority of bad games.

It's evident, even from as early a point in what is a dismally short but unsatisfactory game as this, that Gleamlight is both unpolished and unfinished.

Gleamlight tries to mix-up a formula that we've seen before, and falls some way of short. Despite some interesting features, it's biggest problem is that it's not fun to play.
