Netflix just released its biggest games yet. The Grand Theft Auto trilogy — which includes GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas — is now available on both iOS and Android, and the games are all free to play if you’re already a Netflix subscriber. But while the streaming service has offered mobile games for a while now (and added some excellent titles to its library), actually finding games you want to play can be a bit fiddly. In the mobile Netflix app, every game is confined to a single row, which means lots of scrolling around icons that don’t seem to be in any particular order.

It’s definitely easy to miss things. So here’s a handy trick for finding all the games Netflix offers — and it works on both Google Play and the App Store.

It’s pretty simple: in both stores, you just find the Netflix app and then click on the “more by this developer” or “more by Netflix” option at the bottom. This will bring up every Netflix-published game available in one straightforward grid. Here’s what it looks like on Google Play, and here’s the iOS App Store. If you haven’t been following Netflix’s gaming efforts, you might be surprised by how much good stuff is in there: Into the Breach, Before Your Eyes, Dead Cells, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, to name a few. And there’s more good stuff on the way in 2024 as well.

And just to make things a little easier, here are the direct app store links for all three GTA titles:

It should also be noted that the mobile ports of the trilogy aren’t exclusive to Netflix. You can also buy them separately in both stores. Here are those links:

If nothing else, futzing with these games on your phone will help make the long wait for GTA VI a little easier.
