As our lives become increasingly dependent on Netflix, the entertainment brand once again outdoes itself and shows us how it’s getting increasingly harder to peel ourselves away from the great ‘flix. Starting Tuesday, 2 November 2021, Netflix released a series of free-to-play mobile games for their subscribers.
The five Netflix games include:
1. Stranger Things: 1984
2. Stranger Things 3: The Game
3. Shooting Hoops
4. Card Blast
5. Teeter Up
Fans of the aforementioned horror-sci fi TV Series might let out a tiny cheer in response to not just one, but two games modelled after the series.
How to play?
1. Subscribe to Netflix
Or if you already are a subscriber, then congrats, you can skip right ahead. Also Netflix assures players that there will be no ads, no additional fees, and no in-app purchases so you’ll get the uninterrupted, immersive experience you so deserve.
2. Search for the tab on your Android device
Here’s the catch though — the games are currently only available on Android devices. Though for Apple users, it should only be a matter of time, though it’s not disclosed when versions of the Netflix games might be available to run on Apple software.
So using an Android device, search for the dedicated games row and games tab where you can browse.
3. Download and play
Scroll from the drop down menu to download and play.
And…that’s it actually. Some of the Netflix games require internet connection, while others are available offline. So that’s a thought when you’re gearing up for long travels again. Also, the games will automatically default to the language preference set in your Netflix profile. Though, if your selected language is not yet available, games will default to English.
As the brand ventures into alternative forms of entertainment, they’re dedicated to cater to all types of players — from beginners all the way to pro-gamers. “We’re in the early days of creating a great gaming experience, and we’re excited to take you on this journey with us,” writes Netflix in a release.
