Knytt's gameplay consists of jumping and climbing across platforms in search of the missing components to the space ship. To help you in your goal, the Knytt can emit light that points to the closest piece of the ship. Although it doesn't show you how to get to the part, it ruins a good deal of challenge you'd get from searching without it. This is both good and bad, as I think finding the parts without it would be very frustrating. The only other challenges aside from searching is avoiding the many deadly obstacles and a handful of harmful creatures. To help you discern hostile creatures from neutral, the Knytt is covered in a red aura when a dangerous enemy is in the area.
Together, the graphics and sound are really what make Knytt such a memorable experience. I found myself absorbed in this game and I didn't close it out until I had beaten it. Sadly, the game is short and has a minuscule amount of replayability - which happens to be the only problems I have with Knytt.“
