Other games that subscribers can look forward to include Shooting Hoops (Frosty Pop), Card Blast (Amuzo & Rogue Games) and Teeter Up (Frosty Pop).
“Whether you’re craving a casual game you can start from scratch or an immersive experience that lets you dig deeper into your favourite stories, we want to begin to build a library of games that offers something for everyone,” said Mike Verdu, Netflix’s VP of Games Development in a blog post.
“We’re in the early days of creating a great gaming experience, and we’re excited to take you on this journey with us.”
Interestingly, the games cannot be accessed via children’s accounts, so parents will have to create a PIN number to unlock those games for kids.
