Netflix continues to grow its mobile gaming business with the introduction of three new free games.
In November 2021, Netflix released a handful of free games to play through its Android and iOS apps. Now the streaming service has expanded its offering with three more games rolling out around the world.
What new games are available on Netflix?
It’s fair to say that the first batch of Netflix games was a disappointment. While two are based on Stranger Things, the others were generic mobile games that we’ve seen a million times before.
Now Netflix is launching three new games on Android and iOS around the world that still won’t make your heart beat faster. These are Dominos Café, Knittens and Wonderputt Forever.
Dominos Café is based on the classic tile game, playable solo or in pairs. Knittens is a match-3 game, much like any other, but as you level up you earn outfits for your kitten companion. Finally, Wonderputt Forever is a mini-golf game that takes place on a variety of themed courses.
Netflix also announced two upcoming games: Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story (a rhythm game) and Arcanium: Rise of Akhan (a card strategy game).
How to play games on Netflix
It’s easy to play games on Netflix. All you need is an active Netflix subscription and to use the Android or iOS app.
Launch the app and select Games in the bottom menu. Otherwise, if you are using a tablet, go to the Games category or scroll until you find the dedicated home page row.
This takes you to a page that lists all the games. Find the one you want, select it, press Get the game, and install it from your device’s app store.
You can now launch the game through the Netflix app or through your device’s app library.
Do Netflix subscribers care about the game?
Netflix continues to invest and expand its gaming business, so clearly it cares about spreading its wings beyond streaming movies and TV. But the real question is whether subscribers care. Until Netflix starts producing some unique video game experiences that can’t be found elsewhere, the answer probably isn’t.
Netflix is a great streaming service, but it’s not perfect. These are the features that we think Netflix needs to add to stay on top.
