New Mobile Games Now on Netflix

Flutter Butterflies

Unwind with this new simulation mobile game that was added to the service earlier in the week.

Per Netflix, here’s what you can expect from this new relaxing game developed by Runaway Play.

“Discover and raise butterflies in a peaceful habitat. Decorate your forest to attract, nurture and collect hundreds of real-life species.

Fall in love with adorable caterpillars and behold their beauty as they transform into butterflies, soaring around your forest. Add your own personal touch by decorating with plants and flowers to attract new fluttering friends.”

Set in the world of Stranger Things, this match-3 puzzle game puts a strange twist on the now plentiful format. It releases today (November 6th) as part of the Stranger Things Day festivities.
