What’s up Blockchain gamers! @OffTheBlockchain here with another exclusive article geared towards potential new players of BlockchainCuties. Its time to expand the gaming portfolio and jump into Blockchaincuties, if you aren’t convinced, you will think otherwise by the end of this article!
*please note that the contents in the player review are subject to change as the game progresses through early development*
For players who prefer to look and review before receiving another opinion, please check out their main site. You will find the website is very user friendly and there are no player made documents required for improved gameplay. This is a quality of life increase! Compared to other collectible games that use third party tools for information not on the main website! Kudos to the website Dev for the plethora of information available to new players! This article will have a link to their landing page as well as credit me with a referral and there will be a section on that below! For those here for a detailed player review lets get to it!
As always we will begin with the referral program. This is always my favorite feature and it is finally time to reveal one of the best referral programs that provide incentive to play the game. Conventionally referral programs will not give enough to begin an investment into the game. You will see below the qualifications and milestones in their program and afterwards i will state my major concern which I believe should be altered or changed in some way. But at the end of the day, its not my game I am a player If it wasn’t changed I would still claim it to be the most rewarding referral program available for a CryptoCollectible game. I find it to be a coincidence I complained about how a milestone of 25 was too small and a few days later it was altered and what it is today 🙂 Thanks team and thanks for being active in your community !

A rule to touch on are mainly each unique user must spend at least 0.05 ETH on the marketplace and it must be after gas fees the rest are pretty standard and have systems in force to prevent potential exploits. My main issue is that we do not receive any bonus for the user spending more and more ETH as they play. For example I currently have 1 user whom I referred whom is a team member that wanted to master the game. He has spent 1.7 ETH on the game and in the conventional % method it would be a .17 ETH commission with the standard 10% for example. I always prefer an option for ETH payout as there will be advertisers and promoters not looking to play because of either no interest in playing games only promoting them. To be fair they do a lot to attract new users for example the Halloween event I will go over later on in this review so keep on reading!
Main Menu Tabs
We have a menu which explains exactly where it will take you by its name! No expanding menu shenanigans here players ! The only tab that will be changing here is the Special event tab (Halloween Currently)
I have nothing bad to say about devs putting efforts into supporting community events and they have a lot of information on it posted by their internal marketing team! Thanks for the extras!
On the upper section of the Cuties interface we have all of the information that will help you in regards to Raiding and Adventures, You have a link to share it and also an option to like (Heart) this is all very interesting and perhaps could help with special events or community driven competitions (Refer to their #CutieOfTheDay) eventually i am sure there will be a minimum requirement for being featured there. Everything else is either stating what it does or it is a symbol that you can hover your mouse over to get a description of ! Very user friendly thanks guys no need to test myself every Friday on what symbol means what so i can memorize them like most others 😀 Now onto the bottom section!
here we have some stats as well as attributes that are the factors that will help determine the attributes in the offspring . The genome number is there for easy plug in play with breeding tools and third party tools that use algorithms to determine potential breeding outcomes etc.. mainly used by coders who play collectible games ! Saves on fees for attempting to breed specific attributes. Parents of the cutie which also link you to their respective interface. Also there is the date you purchased along with price and link to the transaction on the blockchain to help track transactions dating back.This is very useful as normally you need to resort to a third party marketplace for that information after multiple owners it can be a pain to determine the price of a collectible sometimes without this information ! Overall very simple and effective with no visible clutter.
This marketplace has a lot of tools for filtering search. Which is important and so far is the best filter i have reviewed for searching tools so far ! There are two separate marketplaces one for the cuties and the other for the in-game items which you can use their In-Game Token PAW to purchase and is also acquired for participating in the raid feature. More on that below!
Raids (Gaming Sector Breakthrough)
Its amazing to think that so few Dapps are supporting community participation and rewarding proper theory crafting in order to win when using adventure mode. When there are incentives taking place that reward the proper time and dedication to design strong and unique pets that have higher win % compared to the average cutie well you will see players begin to create content to help grow the community to achieve these goals. Essentially you work with the community to achieve a 51% win rate and everyone receives the same reward with a consolation prize being some CUTE coins (ERC-20 ones) for the valiant efforts of your cuties .
Tribute/Unique Rarity Cuties are the ones that will net you a higher win % when raiding thus explaining the increased cost since higher chance to return a sell able item, a real ecosystem that pays for winning.
Super Rare Cuties
They have pets that are dedicated to PvP since they receive bonuses in different areas that determine a win or loss . These are limited with special art and you can not see the items they are wearing on Super rare pets but the bonuses are still applied so do not worry!
