Netflix games begin
Netflix Games will start rolling out on the Netflix mobile app. First on Android, with iOS on the way.
It’s early days, but we’re excited to start bringing you exclusive games, with no ads, no additional fees and no in-app purchases.
To begin with, five mobile games are included for Netflix subscribers.
- Stranger Things: 1984
- Stranger Things 3: The Game
- Card Blast
- Teeter Up
- Shooting Hoops
With no adverts and no in-app purchases like those common in most other mobile games.
Netflix says it is in the very early stages, but to eventually create games “for every kind of player”.
“Whether you’re craving a casual game you can start from scratch, or an immersive experience that lets you dig deeper into your favourite stories, we want to begin to build a library of games that offers something for everyone,” wrote Mike Verdu, the company’s head of game development.
Apple has previously resisted attempts by other companies to put “stores inside stores” – such as Microsoft game pass in 2020. But mostly can be played on an Xbox, a gaming computer, or streamed over the internet to phones and tablets.
