Among the first real battle-mode playability for a blockchain game

Over 1200 participants ready to get right into battle

MELBOURNE/ SINGAPORE – The long awaited competitive features of CryptantCrab is finally here and all the cumulative Mutations and Xenografts that the blockchain virtual Crabs have undergone will now be put to battle!

The crypto-based game spin-off from the award-winning mobile game Crab War introduces its new battle system that promises consistent rewards worth over 5 Ethereum (ETH) with each Battle Arena. This allows players to battle for supremacy in each Battle Arena and once they won they can continue growing their CryptantCrabs to culminate in the future arena where even larger prizes await.

Getting Into Battle

The new battle system comes in the form of an arena-styled combat. Both new CryptantCrabs and CryptantCrabs which have undergone Mutations and Xenografts can join in an Arena of 6 contenders to fight in claw-to-claw combat.

To get started, players will need to prepare two of their strongest Crabs to participate in the arena. These two Crabs will be able to equip up to two Fossils each to empower their combat abilities as they are pit against 5 other teams. Each of the participating Crabs will go up against every opponent crab within the arena and the result of these wins will be recorded as points within a leaderboard.

These battles will award participating Crabs with experience based on their performance and allow the Crabs to grow into veterans through combat. Participating in these battles will improve the Crabs and eventually lead to greater results in battle. At the end of the Battle Arena, prizes will be distributed based on the ranking on the leaderboard and the next Battle Arena begins.

Battle Rewards

The rewards that come with participating and winning these Battle Arenas will be a huge boon to the CryptantCrab community. This will increase market activity as players improve their Crabs through Mutations, Xenografts and obtaining new Fossils to fight their way to the top of the leaderboard.

Each Battle Arena provides prizes to all participants and offers 16 Crabs and 185 Cryptant to be won worth well over 5 Ethereum (ETH). The increased market activity and prizes will grow the CryptantCrab community and allow new contenders to step into the Battle Arena. 

Mobile Device Ready

The new Battle Arena feature in CryptantCrab will allow players to have a lot more activities and interactions with their Crabs. CryptantCrab has partnered with Lumi Wallet and Infinito Wallet to bring the game to a whole new audience by allowing players to play on the go. Their mobile compatible wallets will let players navigate the world of CryptantCrab via mobile device so that players can participate in the Battle Arena anywhere, anytime.

Future Updates

The Battle Arena is a crucial leap towards growing the competitive field in CryptantCrab. New features are already in the works and the next big update will include the Pool Arena where players can participate and compete for ETH prize pools.

The very first Battle Arena has begun. Now is the time to join the fray with your CryptantCrabs, fight your way to the top and claim right to the valuable prizes that await! Get your own CryptantCrab now and jump right into battle.

About CryptantCrab

CryptantCrab, which is a spin-off from the award-winning Crab War mobile game, is a web-based game that is powered by blockchain technology. Running on the Ethereum platform, this collection-style game enables and encourages players to start and grow their own collection of virtual crabs. Inspired by the popular Betta Fish collection and fighting culture, these crabs – with their unique and distinct attributes – will do battle in a PVP format and continue to evolve through various mutations.

Appxplore, a local maker of mobile games, has just announced a blockchain game called CryptantCrab. It’s a spinoff of its other successful title, Crab War, and will also feature PvP some time down the line. 

So what is CryptantCrab? To start, the name is a portmanteau of Crypto, mutant, and Crab, describing what you do with the game. It’s also the first of its kind in Malaysia, running on Ethereum. To start you need a cryptocurrency wallet that works with Ether.

From there, you use Ether to buy your first Crab. This is your blockchain token, and the gameplay involves growing your token in order to increase its value. This is done by gaining Cryptant, the in-game currency. The currency can either be bought outright, or gained via battles.

Once you have Cryptant, you can then use it to mutate one of three parts of the Crab – the left pincer, right pincer, or the legs. The Crab’s body is the exception as it cannot be mutated. Each one will have one of five colours, representing their elemental alignment, which can make battles a more complex game of rock-paper-scissors rather than just raw numbers.

When you’re satisfied with your Crabs, you can then decide if you want to keep them or sell them for Ether. All the factors above can play a role in determining the value of your Crab. For example, having a Crab with matching sets of limbs will yield higher value, as will a crab with long wins streaks. All this, compounded with the fluctuating value of Ether, will determine your actual payout.

The game is not set to officially launch until later in the year. If you’re keen to give the game a try though, there will be limited-time offers and pre-sales events where you can get Crabs and Cryptants at a discount. These will take place from now until the official launch of the game. Until then, its website would be the best place to find out more about it.
