Stranger Things Gets Retro Mobile Game, Taps Into 16-Bit Nostalgia

  • Stranger Things Has a Free SNES-Like Mobile Game And It Looks Awesome

In total, Stranger Things: The Game offers more than 10 hours of gameplay, seven playable characters, six dungeons, and more than 30 quests. There are elements of combat and puzzle solving, and players will be able to unlock more characters with different skills as they progress in the game. The second season of Stranger Things will air on Netflix on October 27, 2017.

The game also features numerous locations from the show such as Mirkwood Forest, Hawkins Lab, and the Upside-Down.

We're nearly surprised there hasn't been any kind of Telltale Games style official tie-in, but although this one is only a smartphone game it does look pretty good.

"Stranger Things" season two is nearly upon us, but for those who can't wait any longer, a new mobile gaming app has been launched to take players on an adventure into the Upside Down.


Fans only have a few short weeks before Stranger Things finally returns, but if the wait still feels like an eternity, they can now courageous the mysteries of both Hawkins, Indiana and the Upside Down on their own thanks to a new smartphone app. Because believe me when I say that Stranger Things: The Game is most definitely worth being late for whatever you are on your way to do. It has worked with Bonus XP to release Stranger Things: The Game for Android and Apple iOS devices. It is set one year after the events of the first season.

In line with the show's "80s backdrop, the release is fashioned like a nostalgic arcade game, complete with pixel art and a reimagined bleep-bleep style theme song".

Spirit Halloween seems to be ground zero for all things Hawkins, Indiana.

If you haven't seen the first season of Stranger Things or haven't been caught up yet in the cyclone of awesome that it represents, do yourself a favor and start watching.
