Guide to playing Netflix games on your smartphone

Netflix has decided to enter the mobile video game market. The American firm offers a dozen titles to its subscribers. All the Netflix games are accessible without any integrated purchase or additional fees other than the subscription to the video streaming platform. We explain how to play Netflix games on your phone.

Netflix launches its gaming offer

Accessible in over 190 countries, Netflix is the most popular video streaming platform in the world. The American SVOD giant has many successes to its credit. Even if you are not a series enthusiast, you will certainly be familiar with Bridgerton’s Chronicle, Squid Game, Lupin, Maid or The Witcher.

Thanks to its success in the world of audiovisual production, Netflix has decided to broaden its offer by launching into video games. The streaming platform is now offering a gaming service.

For the moment, the catalog is a bit thin with a little more than a dozen titles. In its defense, the service is available for only a few weeks. But knowing the American firm, the catalog of games should grow very strongly. In the meantime, here are some titles available on Netflix

  • Stranger Things 3 (role-playing game)
  • Bowling Balls (sport)
  • Asphalt Xtreme (car racing)
  • Dominoes Café (board game)
  • Shooting Hoops (sport)
  • Card Blast (casino)
  • Teeter Up (arcade)
  • Stranger Things 1984 (role-playing game)

Obviously all the titles offered by Netflix are reserved exclusively for Netflix members. They will be able to play them for free without any additional cost. The SVOD platform announces that the proposed games do not contain any advertising or integrated purchases to progress in the games.
