Gear Up for Stranger Things Season 2 With Its Free Mobile Game

It's fun and nostalgic!

( The much-awaited return of Stranger Things is right around the corner (it's on October 27, in case you were wondering), but if you're like us and you need your Hawkins fix ASAP, Netflix has released an official mobile game to tide us all over.


Dubbed "Stranger Things: The Game," the action-adventure app features an aptly retro 8-bit gameplay, and begins with you playing as police chief Jim Hopper. Eventually, you can unlock different characters with special abilities (Nancy, for instance, can swing bats) as you explore locations and solve fun puzzles. You can even enjoy the series' theme song in full 8-bit glory.



Even more intriguing, the game will reportedly allow players to "unlock secret characters or exclusive, never-before-seen-footage of Season-2." Best of all? The app is completely free and is now available on iOS and Android.
