contract-servant

Contract Servant is a turn-based tactical RPG trading card game. The gameplay is very different from Gods Unchained and Crypto spells. Game mechanics are not based on Hearthstone and MTG. Its battle system is somewhat unique.

Cards are positioned on a 3×5 grid, and each card has a specific role and attack range. You can choose to place attackers, healers, magicians, and defenders from your deck of cards to the grid. Once the battle starts, each card (servant) will act according to its stats.

The battle itself is fully automated. Your main challenge is to choose your cards and place them wisely on the battlefield.

There is a single-player tower mode that will act as a tutorial and ease you through the game and a PVP battle mode where players choose their best decks to battle each other.

For every battle, you will earn rewards that will allow you to contract and upgrade new servants. The free common servants are not NFTs. They are good for playing but do not hold NFT value.

After checking with the community, I found that you can sometimes earn blockchain NFTs through free play once you reach higher ranks.

You can buy NFT servants in the market, which will open up ways to earn cryptocurrencies by trading and dividends.

Overall, Contract servant is a refreshing change from the usual TCGs. It provides challenging gameplay and beautiful anime graphics.

mythereum main

Mythereum was the first playable trading card crypto game on the Ethereum blockchain. It has original gameplay that is different from the above games.

Each player is dealt five cards. The card on the battlefield is your leader. You can choose to replace the leader with any of the cards in your hand. At the end of your turn, your leader card attacks the other player’s leader card. A leader that wins the battle removes the losing card from the game and deals any excess damage to the player

Each card has an attack, defense, and special abilities stats that affect the outcome of the battle.

Besides battling, the game has other activities and functions that add value to the gameplay and let you earn crypto.

You can build mines that produce a daily in-game currency (Mythex). To upgrade the mines, you will need resources that can be gained by participating in PVP and single-player matches.

Overall an interesting game, but unfortunatly as of 2020 userbase is very low, and the game is rarely updated.
