While the majority of the blockchain gaming attention has been centered around the Ethereum (ETH) network, there is a growing subset of games developing on other major blockchain platforms.
EOS (EOS), which is well-known for its delegated proof-of-stake (DPoS) consensus model which works to speed up transactions and block creation at the expense of some level of decentralization, is notably the second largest platform in terms of total users playing games developed on the network.
Here are three of the top games to check out in October.
Description: This was the first and most popular game built on the EOS blockchain. This idle RPG has a polished design and runs smoothly for being the beta of a blockchain game on a mobile device.
The game features a total of three characters: Swordsman Eric, Archer Oria, Wizard Scarlet that can be purchased with EOS. Users can upgrade these characters with various in-game items that can be acquired via gameplay or purchased via a marketplace (you can earn EOS by selling materials and items in this marketplace).
Description: It is a Tamagotchi style game where you keep your pets alive and happy by feeding them, providing a pleasant environment, and letting them rest. The developers also recently added a number of PvP features, like battles and a monster market for trading. They take a 1% commission on all sales made via the market and the game even allows third-party users to watch battles.
Description: The game is centered around Cryptowizards, which can be purchased directly in the game’s marketplace or won via competitions. These digital characters can be used to compete in tournaments for real and virtual prizes. Interestingly, the game is already focused on building out a separate marketplace for gear and equipment to boost character skill.
Note: All three games require the purchase of EOS, which can be done on any major cryptocurrency exchange.
