Mobile Differences

A mobile version of Neverending Light was released on Kongregate over a year after it was published on 2010-05-15. This build includes several differences from the desktop game, such as:

Neverending Light Mobile Gameplay

The mobile version of the elevator scene.

  • Preloader grows larger as it plays instead of staying consistent in size.
    • Skipping the preloader before it's finished strangely causes the music to continue playing.
  • All mentions of "click" changed to "touch".
  • Removal of the "Add This Game to Your Website", "Be Awesome", and "View Credits" options on the title screen.
  • Much less scenes are selectable in the "Scene Selection" menu and it can no longer be accessed in-game.
  • The touchable light takes up more space, covering up some of the moving water.
  • Menu is pillar-boxed using white bars instead of black, causing some of the imperfect coloring lines to appear in full screen.
  • Fade transition to the elevator is removed.
  • Most lighting and shadow effects are removed.
  • Text font is changed.
  • Text on the bottom part of the screen is now fitted to three lines instead of two.
    • This fixes a glitch that causes part of Anabel's first line "So you can see how ridiculously dark it is down here." to be cut off.
  • D can now be moved by the player holding their finger down on the screen in a certain direction.
  • Frame rate is lower.
  • The Sprites cutscene fades to a yellow background instead of black.
  • D's cry upon the elevator getting caught by the monster is different.
  • Removal of the "Play More Games at Jiggmin.com" and "Add This Game to Your Website!" options on the completion screen.
  • The "Super Secret Info on Part 2/3" window is partly cut off when not viewed in full screen.

Trivia

  • This is the only game by Jiggmin to receive an "M" rating on Newgrounds.
  • D's unlockable character bio heavily implies that he's based off Jiggmin.
  • The game was originally titled Never Ending Night and Never Ending Light during development.[2] [3]
  • A preview of the game was released on Jiggmin's website several months before it was published anywhere else. The exact differences between it and the final version, besides the title changes, are unknown, however, as it wasn't archived.
  • Gamefly featured the game in their website's arcade at one point.[4]
  • Jiggmin began working on the game in 2007.[5]
  • The game briefly held the number one spot on Newgrounds' "All-time Top Scoring", peaking at 4.45 out of 5 stars.[6][7]
  • This is the only game by Jiggmin that wasn't modified when it was published on Armor Games to remove ads for other websites/add links to Armor Games' website on the menu.
  • Ned's kind is the same species as the final boss in Kimblis the Blue.
  • While WASD controls are available, the game makes no reference to them during the tutorial. They are listed in each website's instructions section for the game, however.
  • Pressing "Enter" anytime while playing allows you to pull up the "Scene Selection" menu found on the title screen.
  • As evident by the "Part 1 of 3" listed on the title screen and the unlockable preview of the sequel's plot, this game was originally going to be the first in a trilogy. However, further games were eventually cancelled altogether, with Jiggmin revealing that financial issues would likely prevent any future installments.[8]
