Get Ready For Season Two With This Retro 'Stranger Things' Game

For Netflix, which always seems eager to find new ways to promote its shows, game development is a logical path forward, and the pop culture-obsessed world of Stranger Things is the flawless place to start. For fans of the show that can't wait for the next season, an official mobile game has been released to help pass the time.

Gameplay wise it conjures up a lot of 90s nostalgia, which is ironic.

The game itself is rife with puzzle-solving elements, assigning a different ability to each character.

If you're the competitive type, you can engage in time trials with your friends.

The game even comes equipped with your favorite video game music and in true Stranger Things fashion, it's giving major retro vibes. Lucas can nail things from afar with his Wrist Rocket.

Even more exciting, the game debuts some never before seen characters, locations and possible footage from the forthcoming second season.

Stranger Things season 2 Fri, July 28, 2017 Stranger Things: Netflix have released new images for season 2 of the eagerly anticipated show.

Stranger Things: The Game is free to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store with absolutely no in-app purchases, but it certainly does not play like one.

While this mobile title seems to tell a story seperate from the plot of the show, it does feature numerous same famous areas that we saw in the first season of the series. However, if you've honed your skills on the unforgiving games of yesteryear, then Classic is the soul-crushing mode for you.

Without a doubt, Stranger Things: The Game was created with an attention to detail and an apparent love for the show that shines through with zero contrition.

In case you've been living in the upside-down for the last few weeks, the second season of "Stranger Things" is imminent.
