Crossovers between the worlds of entertainment and games don’t happen too often, but if you happen to be a fan of many of Netflix’s original series such as Stranger Things and Orange is the New Black, are now all being featured in the company’s browser game, Netflix Infinite Runner.

Netflix has released a new infinite runner-styled browser game that incorporates many of the company’s most well-known series, with the game featuring playable characters from Stranger ThingsOrange is the New BlackNarcos, and Marco Polo. In each stage, which is themed around each of the shows, players collect various items and avoid obstacles to reach a higher score.

As it’s an infinite runner, the controls are pretty simple as players simply have to press the spacebar to jump (and tapping it twice offers a double-jump).

While it may not be as complex as something like the newly-released Super Mario Run, you can still experience Netflix Infinite Runner and check out the stages from some of its most popular series by clicking here to play the game. More than anything else, it’s cool to see a game incorporating many of Netflix’s great original series, and it also has some great chiptune version of the shows’ theme music.
