Time in Craft the World is in real-time. Throughout the game, the time shifts between night and day, each lasting approximately five minutes. Dusk and dawn both last approximately ten seconds.
When dusk appears, a creepy music plays for a little while. Night time creatures like zombies, mummies, yetis and orcs will spawn over the ground and skeletons will be released from the graveyard. And if that is a night of monsters' raids, in few seconds the red enemy portal will open.
In dawn a charming music plays. Zombies burn (instant kill zombies but no drops), skeletons go back rest in their grave and, if there is any monster portal, it is disabled.
