Crazy Defense Heroes: a stress-free, single-player NFT token game available on both Android and IOS mobiles. Does this sound like something you’d be interested in?
Let’s take a look at this popular heroic tower defense game by Animoca Games. Certified and audited by no less than CertiK!
Just like any other regular mobile game out there, Crazy Defense Heroes is on Google Play and the App Store. Animoca Games gave the game a single-player design aesthetic. Created in 2D, with vibrant graphics, colours, and immersive sounds.
The graphics are smooth. The gameplay is responsive and engaging. Considering that tower defense titles are known for their “similar” mechanics and rather predictable in-game engagements. Obviously, the VIP element tied to in-game purchases and the “third-party” in-game currency earning system is also present in this game. Still, it helps that the pauses and fast forwards in this game are free – though one has to be careful when making the in-game speed faster as the minions come pretty quickly in this game!
As for the difficulty of the levels, they are manageable so far! Though one has to be careful when playing to avoid wasting energy (you have to spend 6 energy to play a level and use the same amount of energy to restart it).
Speaking of energy, it’s the most important resource in-game… and it’s scarce. You only get 1 energy every nine minutes. This means that you have to wait for 45 minutes to scavenge and 54 minutes to play a normal level. Oh, what about if you make a mistake? That’s 54 minutes (6 energy) you’ll never get back!
One can also use energy to gain more items or do other game tasks. As such, energy management is one of the critical aspects of Crazy Defense Heroes. In addition to gaining more items and levels and generally staying ahead of the curve – of course.
You earn them through two main ways!
First, through grinding in the game. Getting to 315,000 experience within a month allows you to partake in the 1.2 million coin pool for December 2021.
And secondly, by participating in events. Winning six levels with three stars or getting a cumulative total of 16 stars gives you access to a login coin pool and its associated bonuses.
Alternatively, you can also buy them with USDC and/or ETH at SushiSwap, KuCoin, Uniswap, ApeSwap, BitMart, and MEXC Global.
To actually get them somewhere, you have to connect your wallet to the official Crazy Defense Heroes website (TOWER Token) to claim your tokens. At the time of writing, the coin’s value is at $0.064 (~P3.20). If you want to make $20, you need around 350 coins.
There’s one final catch. No one is currently allowed to cash out the coins earned within the game as the developers are still refining their claiming system.
It’s not much, but hey, at least that’s something, right?
There are three sources of NFTS on the game: chests, tickets, and mystery boxes.
Tower Tickets. These are basically specialized NFT packages with tons of in-game resources. They are available in three levels at the Binance NFT marketplace: Bronze ($199 BUSD), Silver ($299 BUSD), and Gold ($399 BUSD).
As for the Mystery Box, it was priced at $10 BUSD, and is sold out at the time of writing. It usually contains a special avatar skin with varying levels of rarity.
Finally, Tower Chests are tied to the game, as they are purchased using Tower tokens. The bronze chest costs 1,800 TOWER (~$116), the silver chest costs 4,800 TOWER (~$308), and the Gold Chest costs 12,800 TOWER (~$820). The latter chests obviously provide more goodies and NFTs. Right now, they’re available for sale on the game’s official website.
Meanwhile, players can also earn NFTs through limited community campaigns. This is a viable alternative if one does not have the liquidity needed to buy through the aforementioned methods.
This is where the “pay-to-play” and “pay-to-win” concepts come to life in a single format. These NFTs provide superior utility within the game, allowing players to overcome in-game challenges quicker and grind more easily.
Let’s just put it in this way: gacha and classic mobile tower defense gameplay laced with NFTs and some play-to-earn. There’s something for everyone!
If you want a chill game that combines aspects of traditional and blockchain gaming on mobile (without the stress of competitive rankings and having to deal with the realities of metagaming), then this game is definitely for you.
Obviously, the game’s future would depend on how Animoca Games handles its succeeding developmental steps. Personally, we at P2E News hope that they continue to develop the game positively and hopefully provide another door for gamers to experience the burgeoning metaverse!
