Seems like the Korean guys in green sweatsuits have taken over the world, right? The show has quickly become the most-watched in the entire history of Netflix, so it was fair to expect the flow of Squid Game games.
That’s why we’ve gathered the 7 best apps for squid game fans (Android & iOS) that let you experience what it’s like to be a part of the game but without any true risk.
These games recreate the challenges that were on the show in detail, and what could warm the heart of a fan more than that? It needs to be said, the Squid Game is not the only game that can play on your nerves, there are plenty of great survival games for you to try.
Let’s start with an app that is perfect to play when you’re bored.
Don’t let it wrong — the game isn’t bad, it’s just not too complicated. In other words — it’s a solid arcade game made in a Squid Game thematic. As for the plot, you’ll get to go through all the challenges the Squid Game characters went through. First, we have the red light green light, then the dalgona candy challenge, and so on.
Beyond that, the developers have recently added new mini-games such as odd or even, coin flip, claw machine, and more. All the levels are time-limited just like they were in the show which adds up to the atmosphere. The prize sticks o the original too — the one who wins will get all the money.
But the coolest part is it’s actually a multiplayer game, so you’ll get to compete with actual people. The characters are not detailed, and the suits are blue instead of green but do it even matter? The graphics are quite great, and the sound effects help you to dive into the atmosphere faster. The game is free, but there’s an ad that pops up after every round.

Candy Challenge 3D
If you thought this game is a candy challenge only — you are almost right — there are a couple of extra mini-games too.
Although the chances are high you already know the rules of this game, let’s make it clear anyways. There’s a dalgona candy with a stamp on it. Your goal is to break the candy in the way when the stamp remains unbroken. More to say, you can’t afford to even break the tiniest piece of the stamp cause if you’ll do — you’ll lose.
Herewith, you have two stages to cope with the goal so make sure to be as careful as possible. The game covers over 100 lvls with different stamps, so you won’t get bored. Of cure, you won’t get a new unique stamp on every level — there will be repeats. The game runs on an increasing difficulty system, so the rounds will get more and more challenging.
The game comes with background music and sounds that may distract you while playing. You may turn the sound off, but you won’t get the full experience then. The app is free, but it contains ads that pop up every couple of mins.
Survival Games Challenge
Here’s another game that fully recreates the Netflix show.
According to the rules, you’ll have to become an actual player of the Squid Game and go through all the deadly challenges one by one. The game recreates all the challenges that were in the show — you start with the one with a scary doll, next is the dalgona candy, then the bridge, the marble game, and more.
All the games have a timer, so you’ll need to act quickly but carefully cause the game doesn’t forgive any mistakes (even the smallest ones). However, you can use the round at any time if needed. Needless to say, there are not too many levels, but the developers claimed to add more challenges soon.
Each round brings you money, but there’s no in-game stuff for you to spend it on (at least, for now). Speaking of the graphics, it’s on the level, but the characters are not drawn in detail (if it even matters to anyone). The music adds up to the atmosphere, and you get a great experience in the end.
Squid Game: Challenge
Sooth to say, this is a next-level kind of a game compared to all the other ones.
The main key here is probably the graphics — there are not just faceless 3D humans but the characters that are drawn in detail. You’ll get to go through all the original Squid Game challenges from beginning to end, but you start with choosing your number.
As for the game, first goes the red light green light, the sugar honeycombs, the tug of war, and so on. The last mini-game is the squid game itself so get ready to stand against the last living opponent. All the rounds come with full sound support o you’ll get to fully feel the atmosphere of the game.
Plus, you’ll get to read the rules of each game before the round starts in case you’ve forgotten or haven’t watched the show at all. Beyond that, each round is time-limited which increases the difficulty a lot. It’s not a multiplayer app, so you’ll be playing against the AI. The game won’t charge you for any in-app stuff, but there are loads of ads there.
It’s a casual game that lets you go through all the Squid Game challenges one by one.
At the first glance, this game is very similar to other ones mentioned on our list, but it has a unique detail that boosts up the atmosphere. The thing is, a man with a gun will appear through the whole game at any time with just one aim — to kill you. Yes, this may distract you from the round and yes, you may be unfairly killed, but the game is quite crazy already, so it seems ok.
The rules are all the same — win or die and dying are much easier than winning. As for the rounds, the game covers every challenge that was in the show and nothing more. All the rounds are limited in time, so you’ll get to fully feel the tension here.
The graphics are on the level, but the characters are just white faceless humans (in green suits, of course). Each round brings you some money, but you can’t actually spend it on in-game stuff so it’s just a reminder that you didn’t die. However, the same seems to have plenty of ads that may ruin the whole experience.
Next, we have Roblox. Considering the act that this game lets you create a virtual universe and be whoever you want — was anyone even surprised when the Squid Game challenges appeared here? Probably not — it was meant to happen.
Frankly speaking, if you want to get the most genuine experience of playing this deadly game — this app is definitely the one. That’s cause it’s a multiplayer game, and you’ll get to compete with other users across the globe. This means — someone may be stronger than you, faster than you, smarter than you, and you may lose.
Sounds intense, but it’s what makes this game authentic. It needs to be said, the graphics here is a part of the Roblox world, so it may not be detailed and all that — but it fades away when you’re getting into the game.
Herewith, all the in-game canons are considered — the characters are dressed in green suits and have unique numbers on them. The game includes several Squid Game-related mini-games dedicated to different challenges such as the honeycomb one, the tug of war, and more.

Squid Games – The Fun Game
And lastly, there’s a survival game that recreates the Netflix show.
As for the concept, the game doesn’t recreate all the challenges that were on the show. The first game you’ll get to play is the red light, green light game. The rules are simple — stop and stand still at the red light and run at the green light. Herewith, the gigantic scary doll is here watching over you, ready to kill if you’ll make a mistake.
Next, the game covers the tug of war game that lets you team up with other players and try to be stronger than the other team. Plus, there’s a glass challenge that lets you go through a glass bridge without knowing what area is safe to stand on.
Al l the rounds are limited in time, so you’ll need to be fast and thoughtfully at the same time. Each round brings you money as a reward, but you can’t really spend it on anything. There are no in-game purchases, but there are ads that you can’t turn off.
