Hades is one of the top ranked games on Steam with over 200,000 reviews and a 98% rating. Publisher Supergiant Games describes it as a "god-like rogue-like dungeon crawler" where you play as Hades' son, Zagreus, who is trying to escape the underworld and reach the Olympus.

Hades will be featured on Netflix Games in March

Supergiant Games and Netflix have just announced that Hades will be coming to Netflix Games at the end of March. So this is great news for everyone who has a Netflix subscription and wants to try out the game for free, right? ...right? Not quite. In fact, the rogue-like can only be played by IOS users with an iPhone or iPad updated to OS 16 or higher.

On iOS, Hades offers fully customizable touch controls for a personalized gaming experience. In addition, players can effortlessly pair a Bluetooth controller for a console-like feel. Cloud saves and achievements are also supported for added convenience and challenge.

And Android users? Well, bad news: Right now, Supergiant Games and Netflix don't seem to have any plans to work on an Android version of Hades. But who knows what the future holds. Until then, you can buy Hades for PS5 , Xbox or Nintendo Switch .
