League of Legends Spin-off Comes to Netflix Games

Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story has joined the Netflix Games catalog. The spin-off of the popular MOBA game will be available on mobile devices exclusively through this subscription.

Rhythm game Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story is another title that can be played on iOS and Android via Netflix Games (and only there). Along with it, a recent Netflix debut has been added to the offer, in the form of Dungeon Dwarves by Hyper Hippo Studios.

Of course, the "problem" of needing a subscription to this service can be bypassed by purchasing the game on PC or Nintendo Switch, where Hextech Mayhem debuted back in November. The title turned out to be a pretty successful spin-off to LoL, although - of course - it did not match the highly popular original.

Nevertheless, the debut of this item is quite important from the point of view of the platform, which claims itself to be "the absolute best" for gamers. So far, Netflix Games has offered only quite simple and low-budget productions such as the so-called idlers, which include, for example, the aforementioned Dungeon Dwarves. Many (or even all) of them could be easily considered mobile F2P titles - or even were so before their "debut" on Netflix Games.

This means that adding to the offer of the service a paid and relatively new production representing a well-known brand can be seen as a nod to, as some want, "real gamers". Perhaps the next one will be the new project by Night School Studios, purchased by Netflix in September 2021, which for now is busy working on Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals.

Don't ask about the graphics – after a few hours of exposition, he can be delighted with pixelated characters from games that remember the days of the Game Boy age (if not older).
