As announced a few months ago, and a little ahead of schedule, Netflix has launched its first 5 video games also in Italy.
Italian Netflix subscribers can in fact access 5 different titles from Android devices (and only from these at the moment), for free. It is about Stranger Things: 1984, Stranger Things 3: The Game, Card Blast, Teeter Up And Shooting Hoops.

- Stranger Things: 1984
Live alongside Hopper and the guys on amazing missions in Hawkins and the Upside Down in this stylized retro adventure with lots of collectibles.
- Stranger Things 3: The Game
Choose one of 12 characters from Stranger Things 3: The Game and fight in a pixelated Hawkins. Form a team with your friends or venture into the Upside Down solo.
- Card Blast
Developer: Rogue Games
Make a winning hand, and maybe hit a full house, in this fast paced game perfect for those who want to try their hand at poker every now and then.
- Shooting Hoops
Developer: Frost Pop
A basketball equipped with a shotgun shoots darts? Great idea! Throw them in the right direction to hit the basket and that’s it.
- Teeter Up
Developer: Frost Pop
No dragons or monsters: the aim here is to get the ball into the hole by moving the platform to counter gravity and the laws of physics.
How to play Netflix video games
To start playing right away, Netflix Andorid users simply need to log into the app with their profile. Here will appear a line dedicated to games and a new tab entirely dedicated to the titles launched in these hours on the platform. From this we will be able to download the game and, once the download from the Google App Store is finished, the game will appear both on the home of our smartphone and in the Netflix app.
“We are only at the beginning and we still have a lot of work to do but we are very happy to offer these games exclusively as part of the Netflix subscription, without advertising or in-app purchases” Netflix said.
We just have to wait to find out how this new platform project will evolve.
