Crypto: Against All Odds – Tower Defense
A new crypto currency themed game was released on Steam today. The developer uses real coin names and coin details throughout the game (from what I see in the trailer). This information can be useful for educating new crypto users about different coins and what drives each project.
Crypto: Against All Odds is a tower defense game, that explores the rise of crypto culture by fusing blockchain security concepts into a stylish gameplay. Discover the world of cryptocurrencies while battling against bugs, hackers, ransomware and other deadly cybersecurity attacks. One of the best hacking meets tower defense game on Steam. Tip: Keep calm and HODL the line.
You are a blockchain security expert and hacker doing bounties jobs in the early days of Bitcoin. When hacking activities begin to surge, you sense a looming threat trying to bring down the entire crypto space. As you interact with other forum users, read terminal chats and message board, you slowly piece together a big conspiracy. At the same time, the people behind it are also on to your true identity, something you have been trying to keep as a secret. Defend your towers as a red hat!
Roleplay as a Security Expert
In this crypto game, you take the role of a cybersecurity and hacking expert. Visit a virtual forum, take on bounties jobs, read terminal chat messages and uncover a huge conspiracy in the crypto space.
Between missions, player can partake in various activities: chat with your crypto squad, trade cryptocurrencies, play arcade mini games, read inbox messages from strangers and use your wit to determine an action. Choices have consequences.
Whether you want to slow down enemies attacking your towers with a plasma beam, blast them in an explosion, or teleport your crypto around, there will be a unit to cover your tactical need. Explore different synergies by combining crypto units/towers with various supporting powers, from zapping a single bug to calling airstrikes.
The other features section for the game mentions it has an in-game encyclopedia which seems very beneficial for any novice crypto user also. I know it’s a game, maybe you have zero interest. I don’t judge. However, anything that can educate people about crypto in a fun way is a good thing in my books.
