Target Acquired: EarthNight

EarthNight, from Cleaversoft, is an auto-running action game with a simple control scheme set in a dragon apocalypse. You select a character and run across the back of a serpentine dragon as its body ripples up and down. Along the way, you take out a variety of enemies and surf along its back until you eventually reach the dragon’s head, at which point you rapidly punch it in the eye until you are flung off into the sky. From there, you freefall back toward the earth while flying dragons swarm below you. Line yourself up with one of these creatures and you will fall onto its back and begin the next stage.

The game is now available for PC and Mac via Steam, Switch via eShop, and iOS via App Store, and it's coming soon to PS4.

Target Acquired: Armortale

Armortale, from RPG2 Heaven, is a lighthearted but tough platformer set in a world of fantasy where the kingdom is being assailed by baby demon foxes. A tower full of monsters has risen, and a plucky hero sets out to meet them in battle as he journeys through 10 themed locales. The hero has the ability to swap between four different sets of legendary armor on the fly, granting him new attacks and abilities, among which is the ability hang from the ceiling, deflect enemy projectiles, toss bombs, and even hover in the air with a winged helmet. These abilities roughly correspond to those found among the four playable characters in Little Samson, from which this game takes its inspiration. The world is bright and colorful, with enemies that tend toward the bulbous end of the spectrum, adding a bit of cuteness to their deadliness.

The game is now available on PC via Steam. Check our coverage here.
