Blocklords Gameplay

Blocklords is a town building, resource production game. Players manage their workers, harvest resources, and construct buildings. The game features a tutorial that guides the player through the beginning of the game.

Blocklords includes NFTs on both Polygon and the Immutable X chains. Players can import their Heroes from either location into the game. Attaching a hero to a group of workers increases their productivity and other stats. The game feature an event system, which, in my experience, is mostly annoying in that your lose resources more often than not. Hopefully they tweak their events to be more meaningful and fun in the future.

The game is still in early development, so there is a limited amount to do. Once you finish the tutorial you’ve reached the limit of new buildings to construct. After that, it’s just grinding for resources and working on completing the quests. Blocklords includes daily, weekly, and seasonal quests.

The team is releasing regular updates and has plans for expanded cities, interconnected markets, wars, PvP, and more!
