Infrared Escape

By Dargan M. Frierson

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


EarthGames is proud to announce Infrared Escape, a game that combines frantic arcade fun with... learning about the greenhouse effect!? You have to try it to believe it!

You play the role of an infrared light beam, trying to make it out to space. Along the way you have to dodge pesky greenhouse gases by tapping left or right.

Each collision with a greenhouse gas causes your beam to lose some energy. If you keep grazing the gases, it’s game over.

Your journey through the air is divided into levels — each one an actual layer of the atmosphere. Making it through the Earth’s atmosphere and into space is a great accomplishment! It means your ray has done its part to cool down the Earth and offset global warming.

The easiest mode is the year 1850, when there weren’t nearly as many greenhouse gases in the air to dodge. The hardest difficulty is set in a much more polluted future. Light-speed reaction times will be needed to conquer this mode, since greenhouse gases are so tightly packed in the air.

When you escape to space, you prevent energy from warming the planet. You can spend that energy in the shop, unlocking science facts about the greenhouse effect and solutions to climate change.

What's New in Version 2.0

There's a whole new atmosphere in Infrared Escape version 2.0! We've completely overhauled the gameplay and design, and it's even more fun now! We've also added a large amount of unlockable science facts about the greenhouse effect and solutions to climate change.

Infrared Escape is now available on iPad as well!

Cool game about global warming

Great way to better understand the greenhouse effect by putting yourself in the role of infrared light. You have to dodge more molecules when there's more pollution in the air! The last few levels are really hard if you haven't unlocked the international agreement

Super fun with this bits of science

This game had me hooked immediately trying to escape the atmosphere. And based on how well you do, you are rewarded with the opportunity to learn facts about global warming and greenhouse gases! Super cool!

Awesome and educational!

The new art, levels, and science facts make this game even better! I highly recommend that you play Infrared Escape!
