Per its announcement at Netflix's Geeked Week on 10th June 2022, Poinpy is available for download immediately. While some Devolver games will be released at a later date, Poinpy can be played now as long as you have an active subscription and a supported mobile device.

Nearly every modern mobile device can download the game from its respective app store. For Android users, that's the Google Play store, and Apple users will need the Apple Store.

Poinpy Netflix Game - Gameplay Features and Trailer

Poinpy is a vertical platformer, a popular genre in the mobile game world. One of the best comparisons for those unfamiliar with these kinds of games would be the classic game Doodle Jump. Like Doodle Jump, Poinpy's fundamental objective is to keep climbing upward as the game progresses.

If players miss their jump or an enemy kills them, the round is over, and the game restarts. Naturally, as you climb higher, the game becomes increasingly more challenging, and the score will rise much faster.

Poinpy will have the same essential elements compared to older vertical platform games but comprises a few notable mechanics that set it apart. This includes the ability to bounce and slow time as you angle your limited moves.

Slamming downward as an offensive ability and collecting fruits that trail behind you is another aspect that sets the game apart. These fruits will be mixed and fed to a beast that follows you and grows as you make your way upward. Ultimately, the goal is to beat the time and increase your score.

That's everything you need to know about Poinpy on Netflix. The game is available right now across a range of Apple and Android devices.
