A Redditor was the first to uncover the never before seen clip by defeating all the obstacles in the mobile game.

Stranger Things: The Game is available now on iOS and Android.

Winona Ryder recently spoke about what it was like playing Joyce Byers in the first season of Stranger Things. Apart from the visuals, the audio of the game adds retro sounds, the gameplay experience, and the graphics. Experience an action adventure game just like the ones our heroes would have played back in the day.

I'm yet to play the game myself - I'm downloading it now - but according to Gamesradar it's quite chunky, with six dungeons and seven characters to choose from.

The game includes familiar surroundings, such as Mirkwood Forest, Hawkins Lab, Jim Hopper's home, and the Upside Down.

NRA Issues Statement on Las Vegas Shooting
Speaker Paul Ryan said in an interview with MSNBC that aired Thursday it's "clearly something we need to look into". The association bans the use of these devices in some of their own firing ranges, Politico reports.

Deontay Wilder Gets New Opponent To Replace Luis Ortiz
Luis Ortiz was due to challenge the WBC champion but failed a drugs test, with the governing body then turning down his appeal. Stiverne, who was to have faced American Dominic Breazeale, won the WBC crown in 2014 by knocking out American Chris Arreola.

Apple let Uber secretly record iPhone screens
This entitlement could conceivably have been infiltrated by hackers, who would then be able to overtake an iPhone user's screen. The entitlement isn't commonly granted, and Uber would have had to get direct permission from Apple in order to implement it.

Stranger Things already has plenty of video games in it, so it only seems fair that games themselves should return the favour. There are 7 playable characters, 6 dungeons, and more than 30 quests, which should definitely keep you occupied until October 27.

It sounds like this transformation is going to be nearly as good as the screening itself, though - think arcade games, banging '80s soundtrack, and themed food. The game also features leaderboards and collectable Eggs and gnomes.

If you loved those iconic NES games then you're in luck because the Stranger Things game lets you play as seven characters from the show where you're tasked with saving the town of Hawkins.

This is it for now, folks. Plus, it's nice to hear that while Jopper might not be on the immediate agenda, the minds behind Stranger Things are aware of it, and they're keeping it in mind for the future. At the very least, it should give fans of the show something to do while they wait for season 2 to premiere at the end of the month.
