For a long time, many have known Netflix as a streaming TV show and movie service. However, since last year, all platform subscribers with mobile devices have been able to play branded mobile games. The first projects were simple puzzles and dedicated, for example, to the popular TV series “Stranger Things.” Recently, the library has been replenished with several more high-quality titles. If you have never tried Netflix games for Android, we will tell you how to do it.
Where to Find Games
To get access to all the features of Netflix, you need to download a branded app from Play Market. Your device should be updated to Android 8.0+ and have enough free space to download games. Keep in mind that each project has its own technical requirements, so be sure to read them before installing. Once you have downloaded the Netflix app, follow these steps:
Open it and sign in to your profile.
At the bottom of the page, you’ll see a quick menu where you need to pick “Games.”
Check out all offers.
On the main game page, you can explore titles and descriptions and view trailers. Keep in mind that kids’ profiles have age restrictions, and therefore access to games is closed for them.
How to Install Games
You won’t be able to play right in the app. It is just a collection of information about projects. To install them, you will be redirected back to Play Market. Here’s what you need to do:
Pick the title.
Hit the download button.
After the project page in the Play Store opens, tap the install button.
When the installation is complete, launch the game.
Sign in to your profile so that your progress is automatically saved to it.
You can find it on the app store without using the Netflix app if you know the exact game name.
Top 3 Games You Should Try
When Netflix first launched its gaming service, it only had five titles. By the time this article was written, the library had expanded to 18 projects. We have picked three of the most interesting ones with which you can start your acquaintance with this section.
1. Asphalt Xtreme
This racing game first appeared back in 2016. However, it is currently unavailable in other app stores as the developers have an exclusive agreement with the streaming platform. It has everything we like racing games for: a large selection of vehicles, various locations, and a great adrenaline rush. There are single-player and multiplayer modes.
2. This Is a True Story
Unlike the previous title, this puzzle will bring you calm and peace. By the way, it is one of the most popular projects on Netflix at the moment. You need to explore hand-drawn paintings, look for hidden objects, and become part of a fascinating story where there is a place to escape from poachers and befriend a goat.
3. Into the Dead 2: Unleashed
Zombie games have made their way to Netflix as well. The game has both an extreme storyline and daily quests that will make your heart pound like crazy. Shoot back from crowds of zombies or crush them with a car, trying to save your family. The difficulty is constantly increasing: enemies gain armor and learn to run. So you will have to adapt your tactics to changing conditions.
More to Come
Although Netflix is still a long way from the big app stores, it is on the right track. If you have a subscription to this service, why not try the games already in stock? The library is replenished fairly quickly with new titles, so be the first to try them. If you are already a regular user of Netflix games, please tell us about your favorite projects. How do you feel about the fact that the company is trying to conquer a new industry?
