Play-to-earn is all the rage right now – who wouldn’t want to earn money while engaging in their hobby? There are a lot of projects out there that make promises they can’t keep – that’s why we’ve gone ahead and collected some of the most promising titles you can find.
Here’s our Top 10 play to earn games on PC or Mobile. Our list will likely change and games will shift places over time. Currently, we found the following ten titles ideal if you seek to earn rewards, NFTs or Crypto while playing these games.
Genre: Tactical Card Game
This tactical card game is a bit unusual in that it’s all about passive gameplay with deck building being the main focus. All battles are automated, so it’s quick to play and users can focus mainly on the actual deck building rather than the strategy of playing. It’s an unusual experience, but it’s a great one for players with less time to dedicate to their crypto gaming ventures.
2. Axie Infinity
Platform: iOS, Android, PC
Genre: Turn-based Battles
Perhaps THE big name in play to earn, Axie Infinity is still a staple in any crypto gaming fan’s line-up. Players collect breed and raise Axies in order to fight against others and PvP levels as well. The currency earned is used to pay breeding fees and more – while the entry cost is significantly higher than for most other play-to-earn games. It’s still a solid option for anyone wanting to earn some crypto while playing a fun strategic game!
Aavegotchi is a mainly DeFi with collection aspects, focused on earning crypto rather than on actual gameplay fun, which Aavegotchi doesn’t particularly focus on at this point. Still, it offers a good variety of ways to earn crypto. Beyond that, there are other aspects still in development, such as an MMO that should shake up what’s already there for new and existing players.
Platform: iOS, Android, PC
Genre: Fantasy Football
This is one of the bigger NFT collection games out there, and it has super close ties to real world football. Players collect fantasy football players for their teams and then compete. That said, this game isn’t easy to win, and a good team can take time and money to form – and by the time you have your star players, things may have changed around already. Still, for football fans, this game is an ideal start into crypto and NFT collecting!
5. Gods Unchained
Genre: Trading Card Game
Gods Unchained is an NFT-based Trading Card game that is currently considered one of the best out there. It features all the stuff you would expect – deck building, battling, tactical decisions, and of course a bit of luck. Players collect cards as NFTs (of course) and thus can improve or sell their decks at any point. Leveling up and winning earns them card packs, which is another way to earn and improve their deck if they want to.
6. The Sandbox
Genre: VR Metaverse World
The Sandbox is one of several metaverse hopefuls that aims to build an entire universe for players to explore in – and it uses various different environments for players to, well, play in. The main aspects of it are the social component as well as the huge variety of things to do. No matter skills or preferences, everyone can find something to do while earning crypto on the side!
This game combines quite a lot of different stuff – not only is it a virtual economy simulation that requires users to focus on management, it also features NFTs as resources owned by the player. It’s still in development with more to come, and sits on the Polygon chain, making it a pretty solid choice to start off on, without the prohibitive gas fees the main Eth chain has.
8. Crazy Defense Heroes
Platform: iOS, Android
Genre: Tower Defense
Crazy Defense Heroes is a mobile only tower defense built on Ethereum. It doesn’t utilise NFTs, but it does offer plenty of fun – games are quick and all of it is nicely framed in a pretty to look at game. Compared to more fully-featured games like Blankos or Axie there isn’t too much to the crypto angle of this game, however that could well appeal to those new to crypto gaming who are just wanting to try it out!
9. Blankos Block Party
Genre: Action Adventure
Blankos is and was one of the most anticipated crypto projects to date – it’s perhaps the closest to an AAA game we’ve seen from the NFT and crypto world. Users buy collect and outfit their Blankos before playing in various party games and competitions with them, of course for a reward in the form of more NFT drops or just straight up crypto. It’s fun, it’s easy to pick up, and the entry investment is fairly low.
10. REVV Racing
REVV Racing is a somewhat unusual genre in the play-to-earn crypto gaming world – a racing game. It offers plenty of competitiveness and has a steep learning curve that will easily throw off those who aren’t too good at it – it’s a solid and exciting racing experience that makes do without earnable NFTs. This makes it a great choice for players not interested in collecting NFTs who still want to get in on crypto gaming!
