Early this month, we reported that Netflix would expand its gaming library to around 50 titles for 2022. This May, the streaming giant releases four new mobile games — Dragon Up from East Side Games, Moonlighter from 11 Bit Studios, Townsmen – A Kingdom Rebuilt from HandyGames, and Exploding Kittens – The Game from Exploding Kittens Digital.

Android and iOS smartphone and tablet users can find the games on a dedicated row on the Netflix app. You would need a Netflix subscription to be able to download and play the games.

Check out the new games from Netflix below:

Dragon Up
Hatch and collect rare dragons — then help them revive their magic in this colorful and beautifully animated idle adventure single-player game. Save the kingdom by discovering each dragon’s unique design, personality, and rewards. Expand your idle kingdom by unlocking more lands and exotic habitats. Upgrade your dragons and nests, and they’ll produce more coins. Collect cards and magic potions, then level up your favorite dragons to increase their abilities. The best way to make money is to eat money so feed gold to your pet dragon Billy to unlock amazing treasures, new dragons, and new nests.

Moonlighter
By day, manage a shop in an idyllic village. By night, explore dungeons, slay monsters and unlock mysteries in this best-of-both-worlds RPG adventure, and our first game from Poland. Step into the shoes of Will, a courageous shopkeeper who secretly dreams of becoming a hero in this action role-playing game. During the day, you’re your own boss. Put items on sale, set their prices carefully, manage gold reserves, recruit assistants and work toward shop upgrades. Get to know fellow villagers as you help establish new businesses, craft new armor, and weapons, and use existing equipment to level up your abilities. But beware — some shady individuals may want to steal your precious offerings.

Townsmen – A Kingdom Rebuilt
Who knew running a kingdom was so tough? This mobile version of the acclaimed strategy game, and our first game from Germany, let you reign supreme. Start with a small village and build your way up to a massive medieval metropolis. A crisp and colorful land awaits you and your settlers, who need food, protection, and fun! Send forth your builders to construct a city of your own design. Manage workers to cut wood and to mine valuable ore. But keep an eye on the weather, disease, and disasters. And don’t forget to keep those tax coins rolling in. Seasons will impact the demand for certain goods like extra water for summer and more clothes in winter.

Exploding Kittens – The Game
(Coming on May 31) Bring the catnip and play with up to five of your friends in this single or multiplayer game from the hit tabletop game creator Exploding Kittens. Draw as many cards as you can, and do your best to dodge — or defuse — fatal felines. Or else, boom goes the dynamite! In this kitty-powered game of chance, players draw cards — until someone draws an exploding kitten and blows up. But that’s not all, Netflix members will be able to play with two new exclusive cards, Radar and Flip Flop, enabling players to manipulate the deck in new ways. Radar reveals to players the position of the Exploding Kitten closest to the top of the card deck and Flip Flop reverses the order of the cards in the deck. Featuring original art by The Oatmeal.

Netflix has been growing its gaming library to improve its business. In 2021, they had around 18 titles. In 2022, they plan to release 30 more titles, including the new ones mentioned above. The company has also purchased three gaming studios, Boss Fight Entertainment (who released Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales) and Night School Studio (known for Oxenfree), to further their goals of creating more mobile games.

Netflix reported having lost 200,000 subscribers in the first three months of 2022. The streaming giant plans to charge users for password sharing.
