Play for free & earn TRX or test your skill in competitive arenas with massive prizes!
TRON Arcade, TRON’s 100 million USD game fund, announces a new game: HyperSnakes. This might be the most addicting DApp yet!
Developed by MixMarvel, the acclaimed studio behind top ETH game HyperDragons, HyperSnakes introduces new abilities and battle royale mode to classic Slither.io gameplay. Players can compete with each other for free (and earn cryptocurrency just for participating), or stake their own TRX (TRON’s native coin) to compete for massive prize pools.
MixMarvel & TRON Arcade are trailblazing the next generation of gaming where players will finally be rewarded for their significant contributions to the gaming ecosystem.
The beta starts March 1st @ 5pm. Test the game and get rewarded for your feedback!
Official launch will occur mid-March. Join the community to stay updated.
HyperSnake’s core gameplay is similar to its predecessor. Control your snake avatar, collect dots to grow longer, and defeat other players to become the longest snake in the arena. The mechanics are easy to pick up, but only the most skilled players will walk away
MixMarvel is upping the ante by adding several features to shake things up. Snakes can now acquire abilities like shielding, EMPs, speed boosts, and more. Use them wisely to get an edge on the competition!
As the game progresses, the play zone shrinks to facilitate interaction between the players and put their skills to the test. Navigate intense feeding frenzies and battle for cryptocurrency airdrops!
There are types types of games, free play and premium rooms.
The f2p mode is costs you nothing, not even energy costs. You don’t even need a TRX wallet to play and start earning rewards from gameplay, missions, dailies, and more!
In the premium rooms, players spend TRX to enter. They receive a portion of the total pot depending on their performance (i.e. kills, snake length, points, etc), as well as bonuses from random drops (think PUBG supply crate), and HyperSnakes “SC” token. The developers take a tiny cut, of which a portion is given back to community through smart-contracts.
TRON Arcade is dedicated to bringing power back to the players by funding and publishing high-quality games in the blockchain space.
Since November 29th, 2018, TRON Arcade has published titles like TronGoo, EpicDragons, Blockchain Cuties, etc. which have become some of the highest-grossing decentralized applications across all blockchains, according to DappRadar.
According to DappRadar’s metrics from January 2019, activity on TRON’s DApps significantly outpaced those on ETH and EOS.
Quality games from talented development teams have found their way to TRON for the platforms usability and TRON Arcade’s extensive support.
The first wave of development activity was made up of teams migrating from Ethereum. TRON’s compatibility with Solidity allowed developers to quickly convert their code. With the help of intuitive developer tools like TronLink and TronGrid, most developers were able to port their game to TRON within a couple of weeks if not days. Now, developers are leveraging TRON’s speed & scalability, like TRON’s 3-second block time, to create better gaming experiences.
TRON Arcade’s success can also be attributed to key strategic partnerships with important players in the space, like gumi Cryptos, Mars Finance, and Cocos-BCX. Working with these leaders in both traditional and blockchain gaming, TRON Arcade continues to identify and support the best developers in the space.
More games are currently in development and will continue to be released throughout the year. Highlights from this group include: 0xWarriors, from award-winning team 0xGames; TRON RAIDER, from INFUN (former Tencent & Ubisoft); HyperDragons, from MixMarvel.
TRON & MixMarvel are determined to bring high production value and deep gameplay to gamers and blockchain enthusiasts alike. Blockchain gaming is an opportunity to transform the misaligned incentives of traditional game economies, introduce fairer monetization practices, provide players with true ownership of in-game assets, and so much more.
MixMarvel CEO, Jade Zhang commented, “Blockchain gaming has limitless potential, but the space currently lacks a game that will lead to mass adoption. With HyperSnakes’ polished graphics, smooth user on-boarding experience, and real-time PvP gameplay, MixMarvel & TRON Arcade hope to inspire new blockchain gaming experiences that bridge blockchain and mainstream gaming.”
TRON Foundation CEO, Justin Sun says, “Blockchain gaming is starting to attract serious talent, like MixMarvel’s development team. It seems like more and more developers are recognizing the potential audience they can find in blockchain, including the over 100 million active users on BitTorrent and TRON.”
