My Review

In my opinion, Blockchain cuties universe is an amazing game that utilizes blockchain and cryptocurrency technology. After exploring and having fun with the game, I came up with my opinion about what I think about the game.

Positive (Pros)

  • Good interface UI - The interface UI of the game is really nice, I like the dark mode of the game which give the game a very modern vibe to it. One of the big drawbacks of a lot of blockchain powered games is the UI, however, blockchain cuties universe has done a very good job on the interface UI of the game.

  • Packed with a lot of amazing features - This is also another thing I like about the game. Blockchain cuties universe is packed with a lot of amazing features that improves the gaming experience.

  • Easy to navigate and play - This is one of the main pros of blockchain cuties universe, it is easy to navigate around the game interface and play. A lot of games on the blockchain can be very difficult to navigate around and play, but blockchain cuties universe has made it much easier to navigate the game and play.

  • Artistic characters art designs - In my opinion, the artistic game art designs is another thing I like about the game. The character arts, the different world designs adds to the overall gaming experience.

  • Run on multiple blockchain networks - This is another big pros of blockchain cuties universe. Currently, it runs on 5 different blockchain networks, Ethereum, EOS, Tron, NEO and MATIC, giving users a variety of blockchain options, choose their preferred blockchain network to connect and enjoy the game

  • Earning rewards while having fun - one of the main aims of blockchain cuties universe is to give users the ability to earn rewards while playing the game and having fun. This is possible in the game because there are different ways for users to earn rewards while playing the game. Users can also sell their cuties in the marketplace to earn higher rewards as well.
  • Variety of adventures to play - blockchain cuties universe is packed with different adventures for players to battle. This is great because it helps keep the excitement going.
  • Speed of interaction - Another thing I like about the game is the speed of interaction. Interacting with the game is fast and there is no lag when interacting and playing the game. I’ve really enjoyed how things are going with the game.

  • Ability to stake and earn passive income - The game allows users to stake their BCUG token in the platform to earn passive income. This is a great way for users to put their BCUG tokens to work and earn passive income.

Negative (Cons)

  • A lot of users play the game just to make money - Because of the ability to earn rewards, a lot of the players are just there to make money, thus fading away the fun side of the game.

  • Some categories can be complicated to understand - In my opinion, some of the features can be complicated to understand. This can make it difficult for users to know what the category is all about.

  • Lack of tool tips** - This is also something that is lacking in my opinion. Tool tip would make it easier for users to know what each of the different elements do, or the functions of the different elements when the mouse pointer is placed on the icon. Tool tip helps to make it improve the understanding of the game.

  • Needs a certain investment to fully have access to a lot of things in the game - This is one of the negative sides of the game at least in my opinion. Yes users can play the game with no investment, but to fully access a lot of things in the game like acquiring items, cuties, unlocking certain features, an investment needs to be made.


My Rating

For me, I rate this game a 3.7 out of 5.

This is because I still think the game needs a lot of improvements in many aspects to fully make it one of the best blockchain games. Compared to a lot of games in the blockchain space, blockchain cuties universe still has improvements to do. Also, the game lacks any form of interaction with other players like some games in the blockchain space. The interaction really adds to the fun and shows that you are playing with real humans. I will also like the idea of adding sounds in the game as well, because sound is a very important aspect of gaming that adds to the gaming experience.


Conclusion

The blockchain industry has grown a lot over the years and has become very popular in the gaming industry as in recent times, blockchain and gaming has been on a massive rise. Even though there is still a long way to go when it comes to gaming and blockchain, there is a lot of potential as we have seen some really good games utilizing blockchain technology. Blockchain cuties universe is an example of an amazing game that runs on the blockchain. The game runs on 5 different blockchains such as Ethereum, EOS, Tron, Neo and MATIC. It is an easy to play collectible game with adventures where the player can play with different cute creature characters such as puppies, lizards, bear cubs, cats, fantasy creatures and more. For me, the game has shown a lot of potential and I think there is still a lot more to come.
