Splinterlands has released a mobile app for their trading card game on Android devices. The game is available for free in the Google Play Store, but doesn’t offer all the features available on the website. However, regular battles between players and options for deck-building are obviously integrated into the app.
For now Splinterlands is only available for Android devices. An iOS version is in the works, but there’s no timeframe on when they will release it. “Eventuelly”, the project responded to a question on Twitter. Every mobile user can already play the game through their mobile website.
The trading card game is built on top of the Hive blockchain. This makes it possible to trade or loan cards without having to worry about transaction fees. Players use their card collection to battle and win DEC tokens, or rent their cards to other players for passive income.
At the moment Splinterlands is one of the most popular blockchain games on the market. Every day thousands of players battle inside the game, while monthly the player activity peaks close to the end of the competitions.
Exciting times for Splinterlands
At its core Splinterlands is a trading card game, but the project is adding new features. They are now seeking funding to build a system featuring virtual land. Landowners would generate resources that are required in battle. There are different types of land, and different types of resources, and thus players will need to trade to acquire everything they need to boost their powers in battle.
Splinterlands will introduce a lottery system for all land sales during the second presale stage on November 28th. Starting on Monday 16th of November the lottery system will open up. However, 23 regions of land are reserved for players who wanted land in the first presale. This leaves at least 7 regions or 7000 land plots for the open lottery.
What is Splinterlands?
Splinterlands is a trading card game that started on the Steem blockchain as Steemmonsters. However, over time the project changed names. Now gamers can play the game on desktop and mobile devices, using the Hive blockchain. Thanks to an intelligent functionality, cards, and tokens can also be traded on the Ethereum blockchain.
Splinterlands allows anybody to play and earn cards and other resources. Players need to create a set of cards to defeat their opponent. Cards come in different rarities with seven different stats. In addition these cards have abilities and come from seven factions. The way cards work together is dependent on all these different attributes.
Players earn cards by winning matches. They can combine cards to gain levels. After that, you can sell cards on the open marketplace for cryptocurrencies, or lease them to other players. The rarest cards are wanted assets, especially when there are tournaments.
