Stranger Things and other Netflix characters are now in 8-bit
Netflix has released an infinite runner game for your enjoyment. You can play as some of your favorite characters, as you can see in the image above. The streaming conglomerate decided to release the game after a ton of fan videos were released on YouTube of the hit show Stranger Things in an 8-bit format. You can play as Mike Wheeler (Stranger Things), Pablo Escobar (Narcos), Marco Polo, and Piper Chapman (Orange is the New Black).
There are four levels based on Stranger Things, Narcos, Orange is the New Black and Marco Polo. It’s also free to play so if you’re in an office setting and need a solid time waster, give it a look! It’s a shame that Marvel didn’t give them the green light to use Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, or Iron Fist in the game. All of the characters play the same, but I would have liked to see some of the MCU in the fun 8-bit format that they used.
You can find the link for the game here. Again, this game was meant to just be a fun time waster, so don’t critique it too harshly.
Did you guys check out the game? What did you think? Are there any characters from the Netflix Original Series lineup you’d like to see digitized into an 8-bit character? (Perhaps Jason Momoa from the upcoming Frontier!) It’s obviously just made to have some goofy fun with and waste some time at your computer desk. I do think it’s kind of nice to see Netflix offering some fan service for there hit shows beyond the shows themselves. We’d love to hear your thoughts, so as always, join in on the conversation in the comments below and tell us what you think!
