So, much like the popular opinion, I absolutely love the game. It just sucks you in straight from the beginning. I'm a huge fan of the show already, so playing the game put a new spin to the franchise. The controls are simple enough, the story keeps your interest, there are more than one character, and everyone has a unique ability that is useful. As heard below, when I look for a game in the app store, I look for something like this. Hope that you guys can come up with some more games, or ideas.
Triple. Wicked. Awesome. It's Zelda with a Stranger Things theme! I do not say this lightly, it's better than most games made in the 80s! If this title was released for NES or SNES it would have been a classic, top 20 title. Puzzles are fun, gfx are the incredible, and the soundtrack is top notch. I only wish the saved game files were saved to your Google account so I could transfer progress between devices easily. Deserves to be in the top 100 play store games for many months to come.
How? How is it possible? I get this game knowing absolutely nothing about the game nor the show, yet, after three days of playing, I am more immersed than I have been for any game! The game is short, (so I've heard,) but the levels have secrets and things unlockable with new characters as you advance through the game. So... if you think about it, you can't complete all the levels until you "finish" the game, get all the characters, find all secrets... ect. But either way, amazing game!
Im going to be honest here: cellphone app games? Not my thing. Usually they're short, or if they go on for longer they become repetitive and they just dont capture my attention. This game though! Its so cool and its exactly what I look for when I go into the app store hoping to find a game to play on my phone! The characters have different abilities which can help with the puzzple aspect of this game! I tell myself that I'll only play a short while , but I end up playing it until I fall asleep. Truly my favorite game app ever, great show, great game!
Gets me hyped to a series I haven't even watched yet. Easy controls and the puzzles are easy enough so that you can enjoy the story with less to no frustrations. Played classic on first go and got 100% completion after just 7 hours of gameplay. Looking forward to the next story.
I grew up with 8 bit NES games and this reminds me of those. Like a weird cross between Festers Quest, Zelda, Who Framed Roger Rabbit or god knows what...but this fits right at home as if it was a cart from the 80s. It even has the same issues a cart from the 80s would have, like "where the [email protected]#k is that last gnome?! Just perfection. Play it.
What a fun game. It is so simple, so nostalgic and a really refreshing change from the artsy fartsy drivel that's out there. Bravo. However on the Samsung S4 it won't allow you to quit the main screen after playing (ie pressing go back). Not a deal breaker people and for a free game I actually feel bad about telling you. But it deserves to be perfect. Only been playing for twenty minutes. (Which for most games is the time the wallet comes out). Oh and I love the TV show, it rocks!
This game is really fun! The graphics are fantastic old school looking and plays like a Zelda game. You have to search for things such as heart pieces. I feel the in game map could have better maybe by adding fast travel points. The controls can be frustrating sometimes. Adding a separate attack button would help. Looking forward to the sequel if it's made.
I have never watched the series nore do I know what it is about, But I have heard the name and that's about it. But this game is incredibly fun and the story is very compelling and interesting and I absolutely love the pixel style and gameplay which really gives it a classic feel, it also has plenty of well I suppose "Easter Eggs" with stuff from the 80's so that's fun, But strangely enough this is an app game without any Ads or In app purchases, which is incredible ! I just really hope it stays that way
I can't say enough about this game all around. Old-school, fun, slightly challenging, and all on my phone for free. I've turned on quite a few people to this game now and even the show if they havent seen it. Only complaint is that I want more chapters. At 100%, where's the rest?
Old-School adventure like Zelda, set in the Stranger Things Universe. Apart from the controls getting you killed maybe once or twice, this game is phenomenal. They did such an excellent job in all departments. I've gotten 100% on Normal, but going through on Hard is a blast! Even better the second time around. I only hope we either get a sequel for Season 2, or at least a LARGE update with some of the story points. I mean, *SPOILERS* The new girl is listed as an unlockable character, just not available yet. I wonder what happens when she goes live...
I am OBSESSED w/ this game right now. It's engaging, fun and plays like a classic RPG game (with better graphics and amazing controls). There isn't too much story, but it has cool goals and I would definately recommend this to most people I know.
The reviews I've read so far have it pretty well covered. It is epic. Like someone said. It's Zelda with Stranger Things skin. This game is a classic NES game that should have been. This is simply the best game base upon a TV series or Movie that has graced the Android market. Kudos to the devs for making a great game based upon a great show.
The gameplay is great. I love what they did to keep that nostalgic there. The only thing I wished this app could do is detect my device's display. Does not fill my screen on my Galaxy Note 8 UPDATE: Go to settings, display and select full screen apps. It actually works. Game display is displayed properly.
Look, I loved the show, and this game is pretty nice. It has a great story line, but the amount of enemies at once sometimes is kinda ridiculous. I almost get ambushed and get stuck sometimes. Currently, I'm stuck trying to beat the Hazmat Gunner. When you get shot, you get stuck, which causes you to get hit more and die. I have tried beating it over 10 times now, and I think there should be at least three second pause between getting hit. It's unfair that you're automatically stuck and can't do anything.
This game is so awesome, challenging and just overall entertaining. its one of those rare free games with no ads or micro transactions. Every time you need up or die it makes you want to get past it even more instead of wanting to give up. The game is difficult so completing it will be no easy task. and its jam packed full of collectibles that I try to collect. A must have.
In brief, it is AWESOME!! I really liked the game so much, the graphic, the story, sicrets and tricks, each rescued character has an advantage in solving secret or access to other parts of the map, like access in tunnels, switching the keys from distance make the bear step away from doors and so on... For a phone it really a great game but the greater part of the game is there is no Ads. By the way, I stuck in 87% of the game.
I LOVE this game. It's so addicting and the story line is great, makes me wonder how much it is hinting at the upcoming season. I had a glitch for a while where I was stuck in an endless death loop, but the developers gave me an easy fix. I have now completed the main story and am working on the side challenges! I am beyond excited for the new season!!
I really like this game! Unfortunately, like others have mentioned, the save aspect sucks! I played about 2 hours worth, making sure to exit the game to save often so I wouldn't lose any progress, and got really far, to chapter 5 at least. Saved, exited and came back a few hours later and the game had restarted itself back to the beginning. Hoping an update will fix this issue soon. Until then, I will not play anymore. UPDATE 10/16 The update fixed my saved game. Thank you, devs! Keep up the good work!
A MUST. amazing controls, game play graphics, sound. really stylish and props to the devs for making such a beautiful creative game. flawless. what's even better and extremely refreshing is that its a full game. no adds, no in app purchases, no mining for or option to buy coins. just a completely game. throughly enjoyable. someone already mention reminiscent of the old Zelda games o the SNES.
Sheer retro fun! A great intro to the new season. Takes me back to the days before HD where games had to be creative, fun and challenging to be enjoyable. This game hits all the main points and I wish there were more games like this...maybe when Stranger things 3 comes out
Loved it!! But all of a sudden the game stopped saving.
I was so excited when I saw this title and then the game reminded me so much of Zelda, old school...double bonus!! It gives you a Stranger Things fix before season 2 release. I can't wait for next installment.
The one and only flaw in this game is that it's not long enough. Everything about it is absolutely perfect, I love the simplicity of the puzzles, the controls, this is a shining example of how more phone games should be made. I just wish I saw more of the show, my wife doesn't like it and I've only seen two episodes :(.
I have yet to actually watch the show but I loved this game!!! It took me back to good old NES and SNES games and left me wanting more. I now need to watch Stranger Things and play more of my old games again lol!!! There should be more games like this for mobile in all honesty; This game is addicting and challenging but not mindless and monotonous.
Damn good game! Takes a few hours to play through - about 7 - and works well. Doesn't rain your
You done a amazing job because I done a amazing achievement which I complete 100% gameplay both casual and classic but with the update is the new character arrive? I am waiting for that guy or girl or something please reply don't know if you can reply A.S.A.P.
So, I'm not a mobile gamer. I always think the controls are weird and the game isn't as immersive as those big titles you see on ps4 and steam. This game though? Absolutely loved it. Reminds me of Grim Fandango with the point and click controls. It's awesome
I was looking for that kind of game for longer time. There is a story, simple and tied to movie, maybe not the strongest thing in the game but also not too bad. Pixel graphics is brilliant. Sound is made to fit pixel graphic and movie theme. The best side of the game is gameplay. I like fight system and maze-oriented puzzles, sometimes a little bit frustrating, but not too much. Map is big enought to keep you busy for 2-3 days. Almost every chapter/dungeon you get new hero to your team with unique abilities. 2d, puzzles and mood reminds me old good java game - Darkest Fear. The game was made just to promo second season (find 8 VHS tapes to watch exclusive trailer), but actually that game is better than most of modern retro games. No ads, no p2w, no time-upgrading, just clean gameplay. Must-play position ;)
Amazing! Finally. An old school, 80s NES style game...for your phone! Wow. Very, very impressed. There was so much to discover and unlock. I could not put this down. I cannot believe how much detail was put into this game. Remember actual NES games based on popular movies? They were usually horrible. But this game stays true to the phenomenal show it's based on. We need more retro games like this! I love that Nancy has the best attack with her nail studded bat. Just get rid of the annoying owls please!
An amazing adventure game like the ones I played as a kid. Kinda like a LoZ you have lots of side quests to do and things to find. I finished the "classic mode" in about 7 hours with 95%. The only thing I didn't like was that you can't pick witch pool Eleven teleports to. 9/10 Will play again
Very retro Zelda-y fun! I haven't quite finished the first playthrough, but I'm having almost as many flashbacks to my childhood and teen years playing this as I did watching season one of Stranger Things. It takes me back to the old NES/SNES days!
I really loved the game but it gets to the spy level and controls get bad... Throwing puddings clicking slightly off the button and my character just walk in the trap trying to get past a distracted gard but I get stuck behind the gard because my character won't go around him. I really loved the game up to that point though!
The game is really great! Especially as a fan of the show. i loved every aspect of the game from the map of hawkins in which you can see the different places that show you certain settings from the show. To the character designs of each cast from the show. And the best thing is the little nods or tidbits throughout the game that reference small details about the show which is awesome! But i have a problem with the game, my only gripe is that i finished the story i unlocked every character in the game (until eleven). I can't remember what percent i was on but it was 93% or something. But when i openned the game after the update my data is now gone i guess the demogorgon took it to the upside down. Could you please help me with this bug? That would be great. And one last thing thanks for the awesome game!
I love it so far but I'm stuck in the woods cuz I forgot to use the bear to kill the guy so I can get the key card and Idk how to get it so I guess I'll try to uninstall and see if I can start a new game. Maybe there's something you can add for that? Keep the bears active, maybe? It's an excellent game overall though!
Very fun and addicting. Another great way to get hyped for season 2 of the show! PS: I was one of the unfortunate souls that got stuck in the sewer death loop glitch. I was about to reset my save and start over until I checked my updates. Thanks for fixing that and thanks for making such a fun game!
My only problem is the controls. I wish there was a dpad option so you could move around with directions on the screen like some other game. Otherwise the game is fun, reminds me of older games from when I was growing up.
This is so good in so many levels... Graphics are beautifully retro (not using "retro" just as an excuse for crappy, as other games do, this one looks great). Interface is smooth and attention has been put to details. Puzzles are ok, nice but not too challenging. Story is cool, exploration is fun! I wish for a sequel or maps or levels, maybe further exploring using the different character's abilities to solve stuff. Great great work here! And free!
This game is great, it deserves the #1 adventure game spit, why? It's free, has NO in app purchases AT ALL, and has no ads whatsoever. All it needs to be better is a free trial for Netflix so you can watch stranger things.
It's a fun action RPG set in the Stranger Things universe. The puzzles aren't too challenging and the gameplay isn't too difficult. The only downfall is it can be beat in about 4 hours and there isn't much replay value.
