Netflix Has New Infinite Runner Game That Features Characters From 'Narcos,' 'Stranger Things' And 'OITNB'

Netflix had been hitting gold with a lot of its original series like "Stranger Things" and "Narcos," and the company has decided to produce a tie-in mobile game that lets players take control of characters from its original series including "Orange is the New Black" and "Marco Polo."

The game trailer was posted up by Netflix Asia, and it features an endless run game where players can cycle through four playable characters - Pablo Escobar ("Narcos"), Mike Wheeler ("Stranger Things"), Piper Chapman ("OITNB") and Marco Polo ("Marco Polo"). The game mechanics are actually unique to each character as they have to surpass different things, but the core concept is still the same. Marco Polo will have to run with Kublai Khan offering his timely assists in old-timey Mongolia, Mike has to escape the Demigorgon and Pablo and Piper will have to run from the police.

The game also comes with old chiptune versions of each of the show's theme songs, but players should not expect that much in terms of gameplay. Polygon critiques the game as having a delay when it comes to the jump command and having objects that are too large to jump over in some levels. They have commended that the "Marco Polo" game is the most enjoyable with the "OITNB" music standing out the most.

With just four characters in the roster, it is possible that the developers behind the game could come up with different characters from other highly rated Netflix shows. Fans have still yet to see a playable version of Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) from "House of Cards" or all the main characters from "Sense8." Not to mention there's a whole bunch of (highly rated) Marvel shows like "Daredevil" and "Jessica Jones", as well as animated originals like "BoJack Horseman."

The game has no official title, but it does come with hashtags #DontStopRunning and #FlixArcade. It's also available for play in North America.
