EarthNight is an endless runnner that was originally made for mobile devices, which means this Switch adaptation is hardly a monument when it comes to its technical components.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.

EarthNight has limited scope, but does what it does very well.
This is a game that both looks gorgeous and hits its target in terms of straightforward play that keeps bringing you back for another round of diving and slashing to the surface of the Earth. If you’re keen on losing yourself in that dream-like trance, it’s going to do a good job of that.
Simple, yet sophisticated platformer that keeps you coming back for more. EarthNight is a highly addictive platformer with great progression caked in. While this review was done on PC, it is easily a must have for mobile platforms.
While EarthNight looks and sounds like it could be the product of a bygone decade, the gameplay and structure are very modern
undefined.Thankfully, EarthNight wins the day with its enthralling style and art, packing in so many secrets inside its distinctive look. A few issues crop up, chiefly the narrower viewpoint during the fast levels and some long-tail grindy repetition, but the overwhelming killer vibe of this uniquely beautiful video game make it something special, even if dozens (hundreds?) of games have made use of the terms roguelite, procedural generation, and platformers since EarthNight was first revealed half a decade ago.
EarthNight is an okay game, great for passing the time. Its chiptune soundtrack draws you in, making you want to play more. Defeating dragons are satisfying but there’s nothing more to it than that.
