Netflix Revives Old Stranger Things Game



Netflix has announced the revival of a popular Stranger Things game, which launches exclusively to the Netflix platform today.

If you just so happen to be suffering from the post-Hawkins blues, then you'll be pleased to know that Netflix has resurrect an old match-3 game, which is currently available to download for all Netflix subscribers.

Initially released in 2021 on the App and Play Store, Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales went on to enjoy a short burst of success before Netflix, after acquiring the game's studio in a $72 million takeover, pulled it from the shelves. The reason for its abrupt removal was to essentially tweak its gameplay and bring it back a little further down the line. And now, well, it's back — complete with the added features, as promised.

What Is Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales?

Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales is a match-3 game that takes you across the events from the highly acclaimed four-season hit show. As players, you can unlock dozens of familiar characters, explore vast new settings around Hawkins, and even battle some of the most daring feats and entities from the series.

Netflix describes the game as a “nostalgic 1980s Saturday morning cartoon art style,” which, in all honesty, seems appropriate, given the show's setting and theme. And while it isn't quite Stranger Things 5, it is enough to tide fans over while Netflix continues to cross the t's and dot the i's. It's a little something-something to keep the cogs in motion while the fifth season goes under the hammer, we'll leave it at that.

If you're a returning Netflix subscriber with an Android, iPhone, or PC, then can download Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales as part of your monthly membership for free.
