Let’s remember which games are available on the platform hours before the Netflix Games service opens on iOS and iPadOS. Among the games currently on the platform are the following;
- Stranger Things 1984 (click the link in the titles of the games to download)
- Stranger Things 3: The Game
- Shooting Hoops
- Card Blast
- Teeter Up
By the way, there’s also news for the League of Legends game Hextech Mayhem! This game will be released at the end of the month. Let’s say that the game in question will cost 10 dollars on Switch and PC. So Hextech Mayhem game will be free to Netflix subscribers.
However, these games will require individual downloads on iOS and iPadOS devices. So it’s different from the Android situation. Because it is not in the main application. In addition, there are no ads, in-app purchases or additional fees on the platform. So just a Netflix subscription is enough. Let’s not forget that the games also work offline. However, accessing games from child profiles is not allowed.
Other cloud gaming platforms like Microsoft xCloud, Nvidia Geforce Now, Google Stadia, and Facebook Gaming are struggling to keep up with iOS due to Apple’s App Store restrictions. All these platforms tried to evade Apple’s policies by being released as web apps. However, this weakens the gaming experience.
