‘Stranger Things’ hype reaches SNES levels with retro-style demake for iOS
In case you’ve been residing within the upside-down for the previous few weeks, the second season of “Stranger Things” is imminent. And you understand what meaning… media tie-ins! Today at Google’s occasion we’ve already had AR “stickers,” however iOS will get a way more compelling merchandise: a full-on SNES-style demake of the present.
Made by BonusXP for Netflix, the sport appears just like the type of action-adventure we noticed loads of again within the Super Nintendo days. There are apparently spoilers for the primary season, however apparently not the second — that comes later.
It’s all free with no in-app purchases (for now), and is clearly a promotional merchandise designed to get you within the temper for season 2. But don’t let that cease you from having enjoyable with a neat little SNES-style recreation starring your favourite intrepid adolescents. The evaluations are even good thus far.

You also needs to not be stopped by the truth that the present takes locations in 1983 and the SNES didn’t come out till like 10 years later. But a D&D marketing campaign primarily based on Stranger Things, whereas it might be cool (in truth, I’m betting it already exists), most likely wouldn’t have the identical attain on-line.
