Netflix’s new gaming service launched late last year on iOS and Android, with a debut catalogue that includes two “Stranger Things”-themed titles as well as a few casual games. Netflix has added two new casual games to its library, which are now available worldwide for both iOS and Android users.
Arcanium: Rise of Akhan is the first game, and it’s an open-world single-player card strategy game. Rogue Games was in charge of the game’s development. The game, according to Netflix, combines the roguelike and deckbuilding genres in novel ways. The aim is to assemble a group of heroes and set out on a quest to battle Akhan the Calamity and preserve Arzu from ruin. The game is over if one of your teammates falls victim to corruption.

Krispee Street is Netflix’s second new title, and it was created by Frosty Pop. The purpose of the puzzle game is to discover hundreds of characters and things dispersed across the stages in order to bring the characters and world of Krispee to life. The game is based on Krispee, a famous webcomic.
Bowling Ballers, Shooting Hoops, Teeter Up, Asphalt Xtreme, Stranger Things 1984, Stranger Things 3, Card Blast, Dominos Cafe, Wonderputt Forever, and Knittens are among the 12 games currently available on Netflix.
To get the titles on Android, go to the Netflix app for Android’s new Games page, where the games are listed. Users are sent to the Google Play Store to install the games, just like any other software, after picking a title. The games may be played at any time once they have been downloaded simply touching them inside the Netflix app or on the home screen of an Android device. Netflix uses a similar strategy for iOS, directing customers to Apple’s App Store for downloads.
In the long run, Netflix intends to grow its gaming library with new titles and genres. For example, in September, Netflix purchased indie game developer Night School Studio, best known for narrative-driven games like Oxenfree, to expand its library of Netflix games.
