The SNES Classic’s release is fueling plenty of nostalgia for fans of classic video games, but if you can’t get your hands on the coveted system, another game heavily influenced by nostalgia is giving fans the next best thing.

Stranger Things teamed up with BonusXP to launch a Stranger Things mobile game, which is now available to download for free for iOS and Android devices. It’s designed to look like the kind of video game the characters of Stranger Things would play with functions more suitable for a smartphone. For fans who’ve forgotten pieces of season 1, the game will serve as a handy (though not completely accurate) refresher of what’s happened so far.

Although you start out playing David Harbour’s Chief Hopper, you can eventually unlock different characters and skills as you fight your way through Hawkins, Indiana; secret labs; and even the Upside Down. And while we don’t see Eleven in this game, her signature food is in full view, and we can imagine she wouldn’t be far behind.
