You can then exchange these points for Cash, Steam, Xbox Gift Cards or iTunes & Google Play cards to get free Last Day on Earth Coins. I've been using it personally and seeing great results! We have covered the topic further here.

How to refill energy in Last Day on Earth

Without using mods or hacks, the only way to restore energy for free right now is by watching an advertisement in game. Last Day on Earth provides you an option if you have no energy, which is to watch a 15-30 second long video advertisement which will allow you to restore 15 energy. There is no limit to how many times you can do this, There is in fact a limit to how many ads you can watch, so use them wisely.

To watch an ad and restore energy in Last Day on Earth, open your map and select a location that you want to travel to. You will need to make sure you don’t have enough energy to run to the location. When the notification pops up saying you don’t have enough energy, choose watch ad. Once it’s over, 15 energy will have been replenished!

Future Updates

Hopefully in future updates, the developers could implement features such as sleeping in base, which would help restore energy. This would lower their ad revenue and possibly other income from in-app purchases, but this would be a great feature for players.

    There is a limited amount of ads you can watch. Ive watched 3 or 4 ads to get to one location, then watched 2 more to try to get to another location and then i couldnt watch anymore for some reason…made me miss out on a much needed plane crash.. Very disappointing.

    • Phillip

      Ah sorry to hear it. Maybe there is a limit, but I didn’t hit one when I tried it out. I’ll update the post once I check it out again.

  • Albert

    There is a limit everybody knows that xD

    • Phillip

      I’ll update it 🙂

  • Mynde

    Impossible watch ads, when press Watch ad screen will be black for 5 seconds and nothing hapend. May in future updates will fix this 🙁

    • Phillip

      I just tried it out and it’s working for me. Are you running an ad-blocker on your phone or something.

  • Andreas

    I’m missing the “watch add” option, I never had it and cant find any way to get.

    • Lulu

      You should have to create an account…

      • Andreas

        Were do I create the account?

      • Andreas

        I have it connected to Google play

        • Tuwow

          i’m already have an account, but still, there’s no watching ads option. help pls


            Have you ever bought ENERGY from the store? I did buy some of it and since I don’t have the option to watch the ad. They keep asking me to buy. I wish I can reset that.

          • Phillip

            I haven’t tried buying it no. It sucks that that’s happened.

  • NickNack

    Yeah how do you create a account

  • Ash

    My and my boyfriend are both play this game. The only bad thing is That he can watch ads and I can’t. I don’t know why

  • AXEL

    YEAH, SAME HERE! No option to watch ads for me either. Its funny because im in the same situation but vise versa. My GF and I got the game together and it works for her but not me. Idk if I remember right but i think she had to do a little more then me when she started the game. I went through all of my permissions and the game has access to everything it desires so i dont understand whats going on. I also checked all of the options in the game itself and there was no option to create an account although im pretty sure i already did but again, bad memory. I do know for a fact it’s connected to google play though. If anyone has any suggestions or reasons why this happens I’m all ears!

  • Tom

    I used to be able to watch ads. I no longer can…
    I’d get 5 a day then have to pay or wait as usual… After the last update there’s only the pay option, no option for ads at all.

    • Skarny

      Having same issue hope they fix

  • Yus

    Same here 🙁

  • Nevitac

    Same issue here. Only happened in the last couple days though. Does anyone see a level cap for the free energy? I just got 71 so.

  • Mama

    If you do purchase you will lose the advantage of watching ads and getting energy. The game creators f***king trick to make us spend more money. Money sucking mother fuckers

    • Papa

      they need money to let u play good games like this one

  • TheGoon

    Run a VPN app to restore Watch Ad option. Worked for me.

    • JorisDB

    • JorisDB
