Taking a closer look at the best blockchain games.
In this video, we look at Ethereum dapp game CryptoAssault, which has rebooted with new features such as its own ERC20 token. Plus a 100 ETH battle royale competition, new vehicles and more.
CryptoAssault is a massively multiplayer online war game (MMO). Users enter a huge 3D world with thousands of players. Moving in real-time to capture territory, mine resources, and battle other units.
How to play CryptoAssault
Use Ethereum to buy units. Every unit is a unique, tradeable ERC-721 token. Units can be combined together to form more powerful units. They will not be destroyed if they die in battle! They go back to your inventory to be repaired.
Units will be moving in real-time to capture territory, mine resources, and battle other units. A unit must refuel for 3 hours after every move and has a max distance that it can travel at a time.
Ground units will need to avoid water, trees, mountains, and other ground units. Aerial units will be able to fly over most obstacles.
Every unit owns the land in a radius around them. The more territory a player owns, the more they are rewarded. A player will be rewarded daily with Ethereum based on the amount of land they owned throughout that day.
A satellite will drop from the sky once a day containing a huge reward. If that satellite lands within a player’s territory, they will receive a ton of Ethereum.
Not all land is created equal. The world is divided into rings. As you travel towards the center each ring contains more valuable land. The satellite also has an increased chance of landing there.
You’ll need to increase your units’ star-rating to access the inner rings. Fusing 3 units of the same type will increase its star-rating. Older units will collect more land rewards.
Resources are used to unlock amazing upgrades and eventually crafting. They will appear randomly on the map and you must use units to mine them. Defend your resources from others to get ahead. Joining a strong alliance will be key to coordinating attacks, defenses, and bases.
