Action games are a general game genre, relying on skillful gameplay combined with action mechanics, and in the blockchain game category these aren’t very common. This game genre is mostly about battles, fighting or combat. It might involve guns and shooting as well. 

In the realm of blockchain games, developers haven’t fully embraced action games yet. Action gameplay mechanics often require fast reactions, and blockchain transaction speed simply can’t keep up. However, there are some games that combine this type of gameplay with player-owned items, think about skins. In addition some titles use cryptocurrencies as a gameplay reward, tapping into betting, gambling, and play-to-earn mechanics.

In general the game genre puts focus on challenges: requiring hand-eye coordination and quick reactions. This genre embraces a wide variety of sub-genres, including fighting games, beat ‘m ups, shooters and in some occasions platform adventure games as well.
