TRON and MixMarvel Bring Slither.io to the Blockchain
TRON Arcade, TRON’s 100 million USD game fund, announces a new game: HyperSnakes.
Established by MixMarvel, the well-known studio behind top ETH game HyperDragons, HyperSnakes introduces brand-new abilities and battle royale mechanics to traditional Slither.io gameplay. Players can take on each other for free (and earn cryptocurrency for their participation), or raise the stakes by adding their own TRX (TRON’s native coin) to the reward pool.
As the first worldwide, real-time multiplayer blockchain game, HyperSnakes is a development for the industry in terms of video game quality and technological facilities. A free-to-play mode where anybody can play and earn, with or without a wallet, removes the usual entry barriers found in blockchain games. The addictive gameplay and reward system can base on their own to bring in mainstream audiences and produce wider adoption for crypto and blockchain.
Together, MixMarvel & TRON Arcade are trailblazing the next generation of gaming, where players are rewarded for their considerable contributions to the video gaming ecosystem.
HyperSnake’s core gameplay resembles its predecessor. Control your snake avatar, gather dots to grow longer, and beat other players to end up being the longest snake in the arena. The mechanics are easy to pick up and provide enough depth to keep players amused.
MixMarvel is upping the ante by adding a number of features to shake things up. Snakes can now obtain abilities like shielding, EMPs, speed boosts, and more. Utilize them wisely to get an edge on the competitors!
As the game progresses, the play zone shrinks to help with interaction in between the players and put their skills to the test. Some players will play defensively as they attempt to stay alive in cramped corridors, and others will strongly try to catch airdrops which contain important resources and cryptocurrency rewards.

TRON Arcade is dedicated to bringing power back to the players by financing and publishing high-quality games in the blockchain space. Since November 29th, 2018, TRON Arcade has actually published titles like TronGoo, EpicDragons, Blockchain Cuties, etc. which have ended up being the most popular decentralized applications throughout all blockchains, according to DappRadar.

Quality games from talented development teams have found their way to TRON for the platforms usability and TRON Arcade’s extensive support.
The first wave of development activity was comprised of groups migrating from Ethereum. TRON’s compatibility with Solidity enabled designers to quickly convert their code. With the help of intuitive developer tools like TronLink and TronGrid, many designers had the ability to port their game to TRON within a couple of weeks if not days. Now, developers are leveraging TRON’s speed & scalability, like TRON’s 3-second block time, to develop much better gaming experiences.

Blockchain gaming is an opportunity to change the misaligned incentives of conventional video game economies, present fairer monetization practices, supply players with real ownership of in-game assets, therefore much more.

TRON Foundation CEO Justin Sun says “Blockchain video gaming is starting to draw in serious skill, like MixMarvel’s development team. It appears like a growing number of developers are acknowledging the possible audience they can find in blockchain, consisting of the over 100 million active users on BitTorrent and TRON.”
