Hades’ acclaimed rogue-like action hits iOS via Netflix later this month

Hades, the acclaimed rogue-like dungeon-crawler from developer Supergiant – and by ‘acclaimed’, we’re talking Game-of-the-Year levels of good here – launches for iOS as part of a Netflix subscription later this month, on 19th March.


Hades, the fourth game from Supergiant – following the studio’s impressive Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre – charts protagonist Zagreus’ attempts to escape the Underworld and reach Mount Olympus, all with a little bit of help from an entire pantheon of Greek gods.

It’s an isometric action-adventure built around a wonderfully punchy combat system that follows the classic rogue-like template by offering handy permanent upgrades after an escape attempt fails, all in aid of helping Zagreus inch just a little bit closer to freedom each time.

Hades comes to iOS via Netflix later this month.

It’s breezy but dense too, marrying bags of interesting gameplay options to some wonderfully crafted characters and a gradually unfolding narrative that makes it unexpectedly easy to connect with. Hades is so good, in fact, it managed to earn itself a Eurogamer Recommended badge when it released in 2020 and was named our Game of the Year.

Anyway, Hades comes to iOS via Netflix later this month with 60fps support, fully-customisable touch controls (and is compatible with Bluetooth controllers if you’d prefer to play that way), a redesigned interface, cloud saves, achievements, and offline play.

And there’s more Hades coming in 2024 too; Supergiant previously confirmed an eagerly awaited sequel – with a new protagonist – will launch into PC early access later this year.
