Take a look at Netflix's newest games this month, with the first two already available to Philippine subscribers as of this writing.
This Is A True Story
One of Netflix’s newest games, which just dropped on Tuesday (March 22), is an intriguing narrative puzzle game created in collaboration with Charity: Water, a nonprofit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries,
This is A True Story created by Frosty Pop shares a true story of a Sub-Saharan African woman’s daily struggle to get water for her family.
Based on actual interviews and experiences, the role-playing game allows players to explore a beautiful, hand-painted landscape all while surviving a windstorm, catching poachers, and even befriending a goat! The single-player educational game features simple, intuitive controls with puzzle, hidden-object and side-scrolling gameplay and an original soundtrack. Adventure and insight await at every turn.
This is A True Story looks like one of Netflix’s most unique offerings to date, with a good cause behind it. Charity: Water’s team, throughout the last several years, traveled to Sub-Saharan Africa countries to interview several women whose stories make up the experiences laid out in the game. They have also brought clean water to more than 14 million people in 29 countries.
The game joins Frosty Pop’s other playful game offerings on Netflix including Bowling Ballers, Shooting Hoops, Teeter and Krispee Street.
Feeling nostalgic for the good old days of Tetris and Brick Games?
The retro-inspired brick-breaking game Shatter Remastered by PikPok, which also dropped on March 22, combines classic arcade action with unique twists and incredible boss battles. Shatter Remastered is an updated version of Shatter, the 2009 award-winning game from Sidhe, originally released on the Playstation 3.
Widely accepted as the game that redefined the brick-breaking genre, Shatter Remastered features dozens of unique levels packed with amazing physics, power-ups, boss battles and special attacks. These maneuvers are easy to learn but hard to master.
This refreshed mobile-optimized version includes global leaderboards so you can track your high scores against the best brick breakers in the world.
Into The Dead 2: Unleashed
Need some zombie action to fill in the void after All of Us are Dead and while waiting for the next season of Kingdom?
Into The Dead 2: Unleashed, which will debut later this month, is an ultimate runner/shooter hybrid that will have you doing whatever it takes to save your family and survive the zombie apocalypse.
In this sequel to PikPok's hit zombie action game Into the Dead, armed players must fend off ever-increasing zombie threats while crossing treacherous terrain. In a world where no one is safe, do what needs to be done to stay alive. Maim, mow down, and eliminate the dead—anything to keep moving.
The mobile game features multiple action-packed chapters, dozens of stages (i.e. oil fields and military bases), hundreds of challenges (think burning forests and frozen mountain tops) and players can unlock and upgrade melee weapons, firearms, explosives, and more.
According to Neftlix, the character of Mason, who featured in a significant part of the games story, was voiced by a New Zealand actor by the name of Matt Whelan who went on to feature in the second season of Narcos.
Subscribers can download games directly from the Netflix mobile app on the day of release or directly from the Apple or Google app store.
