Introduction To Block Monsters

Introduction to Block Monsters

There are a variety of turn based NFT games that have adopted gameplay elements from other popular (non-NFT) games. Examples of such games are Axie Infinity and Crabada. In both games, creatures fight each other, have a variety of moves and are usually linked to an elemental type, such as water or grass. It is obvious that these game elements are inspired by the popular Pokémon series. However, there’s one game that takes it a step further, which is Block Monsters.

Gameplay #

Block Monsters is best explained as being a Pokémon game on the Binance Smart Chain. The game is focused on fighting, catching, training, evolving, and trading creatures called Blockmon, which obviously resemble Pokémon.

Players need to mint/purchase trainer and Blockmon NFTs before they can start playing the game. Each trainer has unique properties, such as different clothes, background, gender etc. Blockmon can be acquired by purchasing packs or by using the marketplace. Conveniently, Block Monsters has its own Marketplace, where players can buy and sell their trainers, Blockmon and (to be launched) land.

Like in the Pokémon games, each Blockmon has a specific (elemental) type and can be used to fight against other Blockmon. The player can travel through various regions, catch wild Blockmon, fight gym leaders and other players.

Each Blockmon is a unique NFT that has several parameters. These parameters are:

  • Kind – Blockmon.
  • Level – The level of the Blockmon, which is capped at 100.
  • EXP – The total experience points the Blockmon has earned.
  • Shiny – Like in Pokémon games, there’s a small chance to mint a shiny version of a Blockmon. These versions have a different color palette and are considered to be very valuable!
  • Nickname – Players can give their Blockmon a nickname. Nicknames can be changed by other players when they purchase a Blockmon from another player.
  • Mint Index – This is an individual number which provides information about when the Blockmon was minted. For example, a low number means it was minted very early on, possibly when the game was in its infant stage.
  • Age – The age shows the exact data and time when the Blockmon was minted.

Based on the Blockmon’s level and kind, they will develop their own specific stats that are used while battling. These stats are:

  • Type – Each Blockmon can have up to two types, which play a key role in dealing and taking damage.
  • Attack moves – There are 4 attack moves that the Blockmon can use in battle. These moves have their own type as well. Depending on the type and level of the opposing enemy, the total damage is calculated.

The effectivity of Blockmon types against each other.

  • Max Health – Also known as HP. Once the health reaches 0, the Blockmon faints.
  • Attack Value – This value plays a role in calculating the amount of inflicted damage when attacking the opponent.
  • Speed Value – The speed value plays an important role in determining which Blockmon moves first.
  • Accuracy Value – Accuracy determines the chance of landing your attack on the opponent.
  • Defense Value – The defense value determines how much damage your Blockmon will take when hit by the opponent.

Like Pokémon, Blockmon can evolve. There are 3 ways to trigger the evolution of Blockmon. The first way is by leveling. Once the Blockmon reaches a certain level, they will evolve. The second way is by giving the Blockmon an item. The third way to evolve Blockmon is to either stake or lock an amount tokens for a certain time.

Tokenomics #

In Block Monsters, players can earn $MNSTRS tokens by winning battles and reaching different milestones in the game. Like Axie Infinity, players can claim their rewards through the Block Monsters dashboard.

The game also works with a token staking mechanism, where players can stake and lock up their $MNSTRS tokens for a maximum of 15% APY. The minimum lock up time is 7 days. As mentioned earlier, certain Blockmon can evolve by staking ($MNSTRS) tokens. By using the game’s NFT Bootcamp, players can stake their Blockmon and tokens to evolve the Blockmon.

The tokenomics of the $MNSTRS token is as follows:

Roadmap #

Block Monsters have set their goals in their roadmap. Due to some delay, they are still working on some of the goals of Stage Three (2021). The game is expected to be released in Q1 or Q2 of 2022 on both desktop and mobile devices. Here’s the full roadmap:

Conclusion #

Due to the fine artwork, well thought out gameplay mechanics and the nostalgic feelings that Block Monsters gives its players, the project can definitely make a huge debut in 2022. By combining the fun of Pokémon games and the capabilities of the blockchain, we expect that Pokémon fans will fall in love with it.
