Dragons have taken over the Earth! EarthNight is an illustrated epic 2D platformer about the dragon apocalypse, and a love letter to classic arcade games. Humans have been exiled to space, forced to live in orbit above the planet. But Sydney and Stanley have had enough! They’ve decided to skydive back to Earth, taking out as many dragons as they can along the way. Each run begins in space. You must traverse five layers of the atmosphere on the perilous journey down to Earth, alternating between skydiving and running on the backs of dragons. Your path to EarthNight will always be different and riddled with danger. - Jump and dash your way across the backs of dragons on your way down to Earth in classic 2D side-scrolling action. - Unlock more than 30 gameplay-altering power-ups that will aid you on your journey as you slay dragons and discover secrets. - Experience a unique run no matter how many times you play thanks to near-infinite variations of hand designed, procedurally generated levels.

While EarthNight looks and sounds like it could be the product of a bygone decade, the gameplay and structure are very modern

EarthNight has some novel ideas when it comes to making an auto-runner worth coming back to time and time again, but the inconsistent difficulty spikes and RNG elements can quickly put an otherwise good run into freefall.

EarthNight is an endless runnner that was originally made for mobile devices, which means this Switch adaptation is hardly a monument when it comes to its technical components. Nevertheless, this game has some fun moments to provide and those who enjoy the style have enough content here for some fun moments, even if the experience never reaches outstanding levels.

Auto-runners don’t get much better than this, and it’s a blast to play through.
