This Stranger Things game is exactly what you need while impatiently waiting for season two

We are just a few weeks away from being able to binge-watch the second season of Stranger Things, but in the meantime Netflix is hoping to keep fans busy with its snazzy, retro-styled mobile game.

The streaming giant teamed up with indie game developers BonusXP to create Stranger Things: The Game and, as you would expect, it looks like an arcade game or a 16-bit console from the 1980s.

The Stranger Things game kicks off with you playing Police Chief Hopper, investigating the whereabouts of four missing children in Hawkins, Indiana.

Along the way, you can also collect gnomes and, wait for it, Eggo waffles.

A promotional release ahead of the highly-anticipated second season of the sci-fi horror-themed series, the Stranger Things game is available to download for free on Google Play and iTunes store, with no in-app purchases.

The game has two difficulty levels: ‘Normal’ for beginners and ‘Classic’ for the more experienced.

Just make sure you are ready for the Demogorgon lurking nearby…
