We’d all wondered if games have run out of ideas and are just rehashing previous ideas. Well, ten-year old Elyland decided to rehash two previous ideas and more. They’ve launched Clash & GO, a game that utilizes the augmented reality and geolocation features of Pokemon GO with the strategic base building, resource management and combative addictiveness of Clash of Clans.
What’s even better – they’ve put the game on the Ethereum blockchain so that players can generate crypto-currency in the form of CGO or Clash & GO coins. So how does it work? Set in a sci-fi theme, players build their bases at virtual locations which mirror the real-world plane you’re in. Whether it’s by a park, next to the mall, or just somewhere public, you can then meet other players in the game and do battle with them to defend or capture the landmark.
Once you earn enough CGO tokens, you can spend them to move buildings or build better defenses and structures on the virtual map. When the tokens are eventually listed on cryptocurrency exchanges, players can convert them into Ethereum or Bitcoin, which are currently the more popular crypto-currencies around. The CGO tokens are meant to be used to manipulate the Clash & GO augmented world, so it’s always different every time you log in.
The game development roadmap doesn’t end here. Clash & GO will next have features like Clan Wars, Parallel Universes and new levels, units, buildings, resource types and galaxies. They have plans to conduct a public token sale in January 2019 before getting CGO listed.
The game itself is now available on IOS and Android, and it’s free (with in-app purchases).
