Do you remember playing online games where you were given a virtual pet to raise and care for? Do you have memories of being nervous for neglecting your Neopet or Tamagotchi? These games have taught young adults now for the world of ownership and maybe even parenthood.
But since technology is ever changing, pet breeding games have evolved as well. In the world of blockchain, there are also various breeding DApp games that allows players to use cryptocurrencies to purchase in-game assets.
Here are some pet breeding or digital collectible games for the nostalgic adults:
CryptoKitties allows players to purchase, collect, breed, and sell virtual cats called Kitties. Much like humans in real life, each Kitty in the game has a special set of genes, making them different from each other.
The team behind CryptoKitties said in their white paper that they developed the game as a way of showing that blockchain can be used for other purposes outside the financial industry, as well as helping the public learn more about the technology.
Blockchain Cuties allows its players to collect different kinds of vividly designed virtual creatures such as puppies, lizards, bear cubs, and cats. The “Cuties” are ERC-721 tokens, meaning they are fully owned by the users.
The game as its own economy where players can trade their Cuties using smart contracts on three blockchains: Ethereum, EOS, and TRON.
Aside from breeding, players can also send their Cuties on adventures and participate in battles, which can help increase their experiences and levels.
Crypt-Oink is a simulation DApp game, developed by Japanese firm Good Luck 3, where players can collect, breed, and train their own 3D animated pigs called Cryptons.
Players can enter their Cryptons in a race called Gran Ton Rismo, which is a word play based on a car racing video game series called Gran Turismo. Players can also increase the skills of their Cryptons by making them undergo training for the race.
In the world of Axie Infinity, players get to collect Axies and raise them like pets in an in-game 6×6 environment called Terrarium. Axies are virtual creatures that have different body parts inspired by real-life creatures, mythical beasts, and inanimate objects. The class composition of the Axie’s body parts actually contribute to the creature’s stats and ability to fight in battles.
Axie Infinity somewhat also acts as a strategy game as players will have to think deeply about their Axie’s body parts and how they can work together.
Each dragon in HyperDragons have different attributes that create different effects and powers when they fight in battles. HyperDragon players can strengthen their dragon by training them to increase their hit points, skills, and glory.
Aside from battles, HyperDragon players can also play recreational games and earn Ether.
