The big surprise of the week is the continuous growth of Joyride’s mobile games Trickshot Blitz and Solitaire Blitz. Both titles keep growing at an impressive rate and we wonder if this will stop to if we could see one of the 2 at the top of the charts next week. Both games run on the flow blockchain and they are already by far the most played games on Flow. If you want to learn more about these projects, check out the reviews we posted for Solitaire Blitz and Trickshot Blitz.

On the other side of the spectrum, Axie Infinity is, after a little relief rally, losing steam again with a 20% drop in active players, putting the Sky Mavis games in the sixth position. Given the latest sentiment from the community, it seems that it will be difficult to recover its crown without making some drastic changes to the project.

The NFT market is still on a downtrend. After the big drop in volume from the last weeks, things don’t look much better at the moment. Blue chips projects hold their spot and the top 50 projects remain more or less the same. It looks like liquidity is just shifting around projects at the moment and NFT investors are just trying to rebalance their portfolios at the moment.
