Counter Strike, Call of Duty, Left 4 Dead… these first-person shooter games greatly satisfied the souls of adventure-hungry, thrill-seeking millennials (sometimes perhaps too much). These video games have also defined the adolescence of many.
While these FPS games provided the adrenaline rush that others crave for, blockchain-based FPS games provide both thrill and the chance for players to earn money or trade cryptocurrencies.
There are only a few FPS DApp games in the market at the moment. Some of them are the following:
Reality Clash is an augmented reality DApp game available for both iOS and Android devices. It adopts a geo-location function similar to Pokémon GO, allowing players to battle with each other in a virtual world that is based on locations in real life.
Players can acquire resources such as blocks, contracts, and keys to build ERC721-standard weapons. Resources are harvested in Nodes, which are key locations where major missions take place and teams compete for control, when a player wins a battle.
The game itself revolves around blockchain and cryptocurrency. It is set in a world where a hacker discovered a glitch in a node, allowing him to create a new world called The Sim. Players of Reality Clash then aim to take control of this virtual world.
In WAR FIELD, players can gain money in real life by competing in deathmatch-style games and get ERC20-standard, Ethereum-based Golder (GLDR) tokens from the losing side.
According to WAR FIELD CEO Andrius Mironovskis, the DApp game was developed as a way to give any player the chance to win real money that they can later withdraw and sell.
The game can be downloaded on PC and MAC computers, but can also be played in browsers.
Ground Hunter is an upcoming FPS DApp game developed by MixMarvel and will be launched on NEO. This blockchain game promises to provide the same user experience as centralized FPS games by taking advantage of the integration of MixMarvel’s Rocket Protocol with the NEO blockchain.
Ground Hunter will be governed by smart contracts to enable transparency in its core logic and data.
