Netflix enters the mobile gaming zone with five games for Android users

The world renowned streaming platform Netflix that has been entertaining the audiences with diversified content, forayed into the world of mobile gaming. They have launched Netflix games on mobile where the members can play five mobile games: Stranger Things: 1984 (BonusXP), Stranger Things 3: The Game (BonusXP), Shooting Hoops (Frosty Pop), Card Blast (Amuzo & Rogue Games), and Teeter Up (Frosty Pop). 

“We love games, whether it’s physical games (Floor Is Lava), mind games (The Circle) or Squid Game. And we love entertaining our members. That’s why we’re excited to take our first step in launching Netflix games on mobile to the world,” Netflix said in an official statement.

“Whether you’re craving a casual game you can start from scratch or an immersive experience that lets you dig deeper into your favorite stories, we want to begin to build a library of games that offers something for everyone. We’re in the early days of creating a great gaming experience, and we’re excited to take you on this journey with us,” the OTT giant wrote.

Here are the details of the Netflix games:

Level One: Your Netflix membership is your all-access pass 

All you need is a Netflix subscription – There are no advertisements, no additional fees and no in-app purchases. (Don’t let the demogorgon tell you otherwise).

Level Two: Available on Android everywhere

The mobile games are currently available on Android devices when you log into your Netflix profile: 

  • Members on an Android mobile phone will see a dedicated games row and games tab where one can select any game to download. 
  • Members on an Android tablet will see a dedicated games row or be able to select games from the categories drop down menu to download and play.

Level Three: Players around the world are welcome

Netflix mobile games are available in many of the languages offered, so your games will automatically default to the preference set in your Netflix profile. If your language is not yet available, games will default to English.

Level Four: And yes, that means every profile on your account

Members will be able to play games on multiple mobile devices on the same account. If you hit your device limit-users will be informed. If needed, you can sign out of devices not in use or deactivate them remotely on Netflix.com to free up a slot. 

Level Five: Adults only

Netflix knows how important child safety is to the parents, caregivers and guardians on the platform. So these games are not available on kids profiles. If you’ve set up a PIN to prevent kids from having access to adult profiles, that same PIN will be required in order to log in to Netflix and play the game on a device.

Level Six: No connection? No problem!

While some mobile games may require an internet connection, others will be available to play offline, to make those long trips and areas with bad Wi-Fi a lot more tolerable.

Level Seven: Catering to every kind of player

Just like Netflix series, films and specials, the service provider wanted to design games for any level of play and every kind of player, whether you’re a beginner or a lifelong gamer. 

“And we’re just getting started. We’re excited to continue improving our mobile gaming experience and adding to our entertainment offering in the months ahead. So what are you waiting for? Let the games begin,” Netflix concluded.
