Stranger Things: The Game ios/an­droid The nos­tal­gic Net­flix hit has been made into a 8-bit-style hand­held ad­ven­ture game.

It’s 1984 and Hop­per and friends take to the streets and se­cret ware­houses to achieve ob­jec­tives and solve puz­zles.

You’re based in the town of Hawkins but you can also ex­plore the Mirk­wood For­est and a lab­o­ra­tory guarded by Se­cret Ser­vice po­lice.

It plays like a cross be­tween the early Zelda games and Poke­mon Red/blue.

Part of the ob­jec­tive is to col­lect as many Eg­gos and Gnomes as you can find to un­lock bonus con­tent. Each char­ac­ter has unique abil­i­ties – Lu­cas has a wrist rocket while Nancy is armed with deadly bats.

There’s no mul­ti­player op­tion aside from a time trial leader­board, so re­play value is lim­ited.

APP But the game is com­pletely free and there are no ads or in-app pur­chases. ★★★★★ DAVID RAVEN
