This Netflix game will have you binge-playing with your favourite characters
Play as Pablo Escobar, Marco Polo and more.

If you're anything like us, you probably spend a fair bit of time watching shows and films on Netflix.

You've likely binge-watched at least one series, be it Narcos, Orange is the New Black or another Netflix mainstay, and you don't need another excuse to spend time using the service.

Well, like it or not, you now have another excuse - a simple-yet-addictive Netflix game, involving a number of characters from those shows and more.

'Infinite Runner' is fairly straightforward. You play as one of four characters: Narcos' Pablo Escobar, Orange is the New Black's Piper Chapman, Stranger Things' Mike Wheeler and Marco Polo from, ahem, Marco Polo.

It's a basic arcade-style browser-based game where you jump over obstacles and collect power-ups. When you play as Escobar, for example, you dodge cops and pick up cocaine.

There are even appearances from other characters - and yes, that means if you play as Mike then a computerised version of Eleven will show up.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, as well as the 8-bit graphics you also get 80s-style adaptations of the respective shows' music - the take on the Stranger Things theme is surely the best fit.
