Following the announcement this summer, recruitments, rumors of a partnership with PlayStation, a test launch abroad at the beginning of the academic year, Netflix has decided to launch its first gaming offer with 5 games, Is finally available worldwide, including with us in France.
Android or nothing
Currently this offer is only available on Android mobile and tablet, so sorry for iPhone, Windows PC and Mac users, but you still have to be a little more patient! After opening the application you can find the new games area, on the tablet you can also select games in the categories menu. If you are an account owner on the VOD platform, click on the game you send to the Play Store to download it for free.. Games are not available in the Youth Area or if the Parental Control Code is in effect.
5 games, 1 franchise
Content level, no big news compared to slightly earlier tests in other countries. Five games are available, small mobile games like Shooting Hoops are a game where you need to know how to combine basketball and arrows, puzzle game version card blast and teaser up gravity game with a ball to guide in the hole. For the other two it is a franchise Stranger Things Highlighted by: Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3: The Game.
A promising start
We have noticed some frustration over the quality of games such as small mobile applications or lack of diversity in the catalog, But let’s not forget that we are at the beginning of the experience ! You have to see how things develop, but keep in mind that Netflix has recruited big names in video games, the smartphone does not even support the big game, so we can imagine most of the great and beautiful games available depending on the platform. PCs, like Google Stadia for a while, have no consoles with a cloud gaming system!
