Over a dozen mobile games have been added to Netflix since November 2021. According to Apptopia, they generated only 8.1 million downloads combined.
Stranger Things 3: The Game
The most popular title on Netflix is Frosty Pop’s physics-based puzzle game Teeter (Up), where a player maneuvers a platform to guide a ball into a hall. It has been downloaded 820k times since November 3, 2021.
As pointed out by Apptopia, this is not a very impressive result compared to big mobile publishers, which can achieve numbers like this within days since launch.
There are three more titles from Frosty Pop in the Netflix catalog: Bowling Ballers, hidden object game Krispee Street, and “basketball with a dart gun” Shooting Hoops.
The list of other titles available on Netflix includes card strategy game Arcanium: Rise of Akhan, match-3 Knittens, mini-golf game Wonderputt Forever, racing game Asphalt Xtreme, card game Card Blast, Dominoes Café, as well as two titles based on the Stranger Things series, Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3: The Game.
Netflix only has two games based on its own IPs for the time being. The company, however, is looking forward to partnering with different studios on producing more projects. Last September, Netflix acquired Night School Studio, known for its supernatural thriller Oxenfree, and announced VR game Eden Unearthed for Oculus Quest.
Mobile games officially appeared on Netflix last November. They are included in its subscription with no ads or additional in-app purchases. However, these titles must be downloaded as separate apps through the App Store or Google Play.
