Joining Netflix Games are Arcanium: Rise of Akhan and Krispee Street, both of which are now available on iPhone, iPad, and Android devices for Netflix members. These additions bring the total number of games on Netflix’s gaming service up to 12.
Arcanium: Rise of Akhan is a card-based strategy game with an open-world structure. The game involves deckbuilding for players who like to devise their own playstyle. Arcanium: Rise of Akhan has been available on Steam Early Access since December 2020, where it has received mostly positive reviews and costs $16.99, and it’s now making the leap to mobile.
Krispee Street takes the colorful cast and style of the webtoon Krispee and turns it into a seeking puzzle game. Players scour a large picture full of Krispee characters and scenery to find various targets, similar to the Where’s Waldo or I Spy books.
To play, your device must be running Android 8.0 or later or iOS 15/iPadOS 15 or later. Netflix says there should be a Netflix Games row on your profile’s homepage in the main Netflix app. It did not appear on our iPad Air 2. Instead we had to search for the specific game, and then download from the App Store. A Netflix games row did show up on our Android smartphone.

Netflix’s game library is still small, and doesn’t yet compare to other game services, such as Apple Arcade. Some of Netflix’s games are even rather dated, like 2016’s Asphalt Xtreme, a game that saw its services shut down just before joining Netflix Games. But, this is essentially a free addition to existing Netflix memberships, and may provide value to customers. Of course, Netflix did just raise its prices.
