The amount of game here—easily six hours plus—is massive for an app that is 100% free without ads or in-app purchases, with each of those hours lovingly crafted by a team that obviously cares about all of its source material. This is a gift to fans of Stranger Things or NES/SNES-era adventures with no strings attached, except the time you’ll inevitably lose once you’re sucked into its world.
Stranger Things is one of the most surprising tie-in games out there. It's a clever homage to the show's setting and the kinds of games from that era, it's fun to play, and it's completely free. It may not do much to capture the same tone of the show and some of its gameplay might feel dated, but that's ok. Stranger Things: The Game is a fun experience that treats its audience with some respect, which is a thing few other tie-in games can claim.
Visually, Stranger Things: The Game is full of beautiful retro graphics, just as you'd expect it would. After all, the first season takes place in the 1980s, the golden age of gaming. Even the icon resembles an old NES cartridge, which I adore. And while the pixel art style of the Stranger Things game feels classic, there's still a lot of details and textures packed in this digital rendition of Hawkins, Indiana.
