Where to find the six most popular crypto game genres

News | December 29, 2018 br>

Are you looking for a crypto game to play but get lost in the hundreds available? Gameunculus will guide you through this! Here are the most popular genres with their merits and drawbacks, and some typical representatives of each, to make your choice easier.


Sorry, we can’t ignore them. Collectibles are the first (along with lotteries, hot potatoes and gambling), the most well-known and successful crypto games. And it’s not really kind of a niche; any crypto game in which you own non-fungible tokens is, in a sense, a collector’s item. Just like any hot chick on Instagram is a unique snowflake (sorry for that sexist joke in our previous article!).

If spending money on something you can only admire seems silly to you, pure collectibles are not your cup of crypto games. And please don’t share these hateful thoughts with your grandmother, regarding her porcelain kitten collection – we are not responsible for the consequences!

Fortunately, many collectibles came to their senses and added gameplay. Even CryptoKitties had a few addons: cat hats, cat races, cat fights (this one looks more like a porn genre though). Today, the pinnacle of crypto games consists of completed collectibles, with a few exceptions.

Examples of crypto games

  • CryptoKitties – the founder of the genre and the most successful crypto game of all time. “Collecting and raising digital cats” – this is the way to success. For the developers of Kitties, of course.
  • CryptoPunks – another pure 24 × 24 pixel punks collector’s item. Not dead, although some of them look a bit rotten, just like real punks.
  • Blockchain cuties – collectable smart ass with cute animals and improved gameplay: fighting, raid bosses, adventures.
  • Etheremon – one more game that started out as a collector’s item and evolved into something bigger. Catch your mons, train them and make them evolve, send them on an adventure; you can get a starter slave holder pack for free!

Advantages and disadvantages

  • All you can do with your pure collectibles is trade. And sometimes reproduce, to increase the number of collectibles and let them take over the world.
  • The gameplay of some unclean collectibles (wink, wink) looks good, so calling a game a “collector’s item” is not a death sentence. They have a chance to redeem themselves.
  • Crypto collectibles are hypoallergenic, unlike physical collectibles. Easy to prove! No one sneezes Xtreme Bananas or non-extreme kittens, but flood your home with stuffed animals, antique furniture, or rare books, and you’ll sneeze all the time. Consult your doctor before trying!

Collectible cards

The game genre inspired by popular and highly profitable real-life and online card games like Magic: The Gathering and Hearthstone. We call them collectibles, but they are not similar to the collectibles from the previous point. Take turns playing your cards (spells, characters or boosters) and defeat your opponent; and you better do it smart.

Examples of crypto games

  • Steem monsters – Game powered by Steem where you try to reunite the Splinterlands. With a pack of cards, yes.
  • Gods Unleashed – build a deck and win with the help of your protective god. No god of wine and tits, unfortunately – Gameunculus would love to choose him as the patron saint.
  • Dark winds – a pirate card trading game with upcoming tournaments and rival buccaneers. For those who are missing the age of naval battles and want to romanticize pirate stuff.

Advantages and disadvantages

  • It’s math and logic, not an idle clicker! You’ll need to be a Gaming Teacher in the Faculty of Digital Card Battles to learn all the features and build a good deck (and spend a lot to get the best cards).
  • This kind of blockchain game has great potential to become an esports. Do you want to be known worldwide? Stop posting nudes and inspirational quotes, start playing and streaming!


A virtual world where crazy mobs slaughter innocent robots to complete quests and go on raids to sharpen their minds with yo-mama jokes. Sound exciting to you? Welcome to the MMORPG. Come to think of it, you should wait a bit, as most of the crypto games of this type are still in development.

Examples of crypto games

  • Chibi fighters – this one hasn’t really strayed from collectibles. Some equipment and weapons, fights, and calls from other players to adventures. Let’s call the game an RPG ahead of time.
  • Neon Quarter – not a fantastic game, which is good in itself. Cyberpunk with neat graphics. In development (sorry!).
  • 9Lives Arena – skills and spells, different arts and warrior abilities. And Ooogy, your ugliest companion and servant ever! In development, but already raised $ 55,000 on Kickstarter!

Advantages and disadvantages

  • You can make your character the complete opposite of yourself: extremely powerful, remarkably agile, and surprisingly intelligent. The problem is, where do you get enough points for this?
  • “You don’t understand mom! I can’t save in the middle of a battle! – your mother will not trust you and you will lose all your progress.
  • While you sleep, your enemy changes their character! He doesn’t sleep, work, go to the bathroom – he just completes quests and raids while wearing a diaper. Not ready to be like him? Then you will always be far behind.


Do you remember playing the first primitive races on your Nintendo or your PC with Windows 95? Oh, sorry, you might not be that old. Either way, driving cars, riding horses or running hurdles to finish first has always been thrilling. Well, not on the blockchain actually – games like this could be counted with one hand. And you will still have a few fingers left.

Examples of crypto games

  • nTitle Fury – a retro blockchain racing game with tokens, boosters and a huge prize pool.
  • CryptoCheval. Cute pet collectibles evolve into role-playing games and fighters, while the collectible horse has become a racing game, it makes sense!
  • Ink crypt – pigs have never been faster! And elegant. The fast and stylish pigs can now compete in running competitions, and watching them run is an incredible pleasure.

Advantages and disadvantages

  • Being the best driver in a game will not improve your driving skills. You better go to a driving school so you don’t hit the fences all the time. Worse yet, you’ll barely train your pigs to run over hurdles.
  • More seriously, the race can be quite boring when you play it for a long time, although the developers aren’t lazy to introduce new features and maps.
  • The foreigner the better – and pig breeds are perfect at this point. Why not introduce breeds of ostriches, crabs or sloths?

Shooters and fighters

Shooters and fighters were among the first video games, and they are still popular. However, there are not many of them on the blockchain. Why did we put these two together? Just on the basis of their cruelty and their highest bloodiness. These are the games that are usually blamed when another guy shoots his school.

Examples of crypto games

  • WAR FIELD – this title, we must write it with all capitals (their advisor asked us). The first and only live coin operated shooter. Very hypable – just check our blog for mentions. Always new: game modes, achievements, KYC or withdrawal limits …
  • CryptoFights – a 1 × 1 3D fighting game, where you have to patiently wait for your opponent to finish their turn before kicking them. Not very realistic, you say? Huh, and does Chibies fighting orcs sound more realistic to you? The game is in development, so you don’t have a chance to play it at this time.
  • Glitch Goons – one more game in development. Mutant animals fight with each other. Mortal Kombat on blockchain? Not exactly, because the fights are automatic. Free-to-play, and who cares about automatic fights after that?

Advantages and disadvantages

  • You can satisfy your thirst for blood in a socially acceptable way. But you’d better not tell anyone that you even have that bloodlust – pretend these genres are just helping you develop your reaction skills.
  • Few players play shooters and fighters on blockchain, so sometimes it is difficult to find an opponent. The WAR FIELD Telegram chat is always inundated with guys looking for someone they could pull into the game.

Business games

You can also call them simulators, because it’s the same kind of game as The Sims: simulate building a house, simulate a decent job, simulate a happy family… Oh, it all sounds so depressing if you think about it!

Examples of crypto games

  • ETH.VILLE – a crypto business tower with offices, apartments, mini-games and heroes to level up and develop.
  • Token Magnate – a city with various businesses and entertainment venues and an army of talented employees to work there and generate income. The developers claim that you can get real cryptocurrency by playing, but the withdrawal feature is not live yet.
  • Mega Crypto Polis – an industrial city where you buy land to start your business. If you don’t mind paying taxes like in real life, go ahead and give it a try.

Advantages and disadvantages

  • You can, for once in your life, feel like the king of the world and own a successful business.
  • Unfortunately, your in-game skills will do little to help you start a real business or expand your already existing hot dog stand.

Too many variations, and all of them sounding pretty exciting? Still can’t decide what kind of crypto game to choose? Coooool, stay tuned and Gameunculus will help you with the latest psychological tools, its deepest understanding of crypto games, and an endless stream of jokes.
