We all know that Netflix offers a wealth of amazing movies and TV shows, but did you also know that your Netflix subscription includes access to Android and iOS games? These games come at no extra cost and have no adverts or in-app purchases—a rarity for mobile games nowadays.
Not all of Netflix’s smartphones games are of the same quality, though. To help you decide which ones are worth your time, we’ve put together this list of the best Netflix mobile games. Whether you enjoy puzzles, action, or story, there’s something for everyone here.
1. Krispee Street
Krispee Street is based on the delightful webcomic, though you don’t need any familiarity to dive into this hidden object game that features a charming, colorful 2D art style and entrancing audio.
Your aim is to find the hundreds of characters and objects scattered through the many levels. As you spot them, you earn coins, which you can trade in for collectible cards. There are also daily challenges and a zen mode for endless hunting.
2. Wonderputt Forever
Wonderputt Forever isn’t your average mini-golf game. The first thing you’ll notice is the incredible geometric art, which is full of vibrant detail, creating inventive courses that blend reality with fantasy.
When you eventually sink the ball in the final hole, after applying the right level of power and avoiding obstacles, the course morphs into the next—forests cut down, bizarre structures built—like you’re witnessing the birth of a civilization.
3. Bowling Ballers
Bowling Ballers is an endless runner with a twist. You control a bowling ball and your objective is to knock down as many pins as you can while collecting coins, jumping on ramps, flying in planes, skateboarding, and much more chaos.
There’s also a level-based mode if you want that sense of progress, meeting the level’s goals to unlock the next. Bowling Ballers is a great mobile game to kill some time.
4. Asphalt Xtreme
Asphalt Xtreme is a thrilling, fast-paced racing game that lets you drive monster trucks, muscle cars, buggies, and more, all of which you can upgrade and customize.
There are hundreds of challenges and career events to master, with eight-player races taking place in jungles, mountains, and dunes. If you want to feel the need for speed in the palm of your hands, play this.
5. This Is a True Story
While many of us take water for granted, This Is a True Story puts you in the shoes of people who have to overcome great obstacles just to find the natural resource.
It’s a narrative puzzle game, with the focus firmly on telling a story through hand-painted art and basic side-scrolling gameplay. It’s short and sweet, and especially engaging because it’s based on real-life interviews.
Townsmen is a city-builder set in the medieval period, where you must build a kingdom from the ground up. Keep your fields fertile to grow food, your workers happy to collect materials, and your settlers protected and entertained.
With plenty of buildings to choose from, character types with different demands, weather changes and natural disasters, and complex economies, there’s a lot to keep you busy.
Arcanium is a fantasy, roguelike strategy card game. You select your favored animal hero, in a world that blends magic and technology, and must form a party to save the land of Arzu from annihilation by the evil Akhan the Calamity.
This is a single-player experience, but your AI companions make this feel like a team adventure; especially because you must build connections between your anthropomorphic pals, playing your cards right and investing in the necessary upgrades.
8. Into the Dead 2
Do you think you could survive the apocalypse? In Into the Dead 2, you can find out, as you must battle the evolving undead in an action-packed game bursting with excitement and intrigue. You’ll need to keep your weapons upgraded—and your canine pal by your side.
This is an auto-run game, so don’t expect the narrative quality of something like Telltale’s The Walking Dead (a superb adventure game), but there’s a serviceable story that frames the campaign’s levels. Really, though, you’re here for the zombie-busting action.
Moonlighter is an action RPG game that first launched in 2018 on platforms like Windows, PS4, and Xbox One. Now, it’s available as a mobile game exclusively through Netflix, and it’s one you shouldn’t overlook, especially if you’re seeking a long-lasting experience.
You’re Will, a shopkeeper by day and a dungeon crawler by night. You must master the economics of selling and the strategy of battle in order to find treasure, defeat enemies, and upgrade your store. And don’t forget to help your village prosper at the same time!
10. Relic Hunters: Rebels
Relic Hunters: Rebels is a charmingly pixelated game that blends top-down shooting with RPG elements. Battle enemies and collect items, then craft to build out your arsenal of weapons. You might have played Relic Hunters before, but Rebels marks the series’ debut on mobile, available only on Netflix.
Jimmy, Ace, Pinkyy, and Raff are the four heroes in battle, each with unique personalities and abilities, and it’s their aim to help four tribes work together to bring down the unsavory Ducan Empire.
