Earthnight is a unique, strange and beautiful auto-runner. Play as Stanley or Sydney to defeat the dragon apocalypse that has taken over the earth and skydive your way back through the atmosphere, while maneuvering around enemies and obstacles.

Jump and dash on the back of dragons; use two halves of the screen to slow down while running, fall faster or double jump. As you fall through the earth’s atmosphere, the creeps on the dragon’s back get tougher and more challenging.

Each dragon back has its own unique world that is procedurally generated. Therefore, each run is different, no matter how many times you play. I find myself at awe at how beautifully crafted and challenging the game is. You will end up dying, a lot!
