The TRON Arcade fund and MixMarvel are launching HyperSnakes which is the blockchain version of Slither.io. It will allow players to compete and earn TRX without a wallet, circumventing common cryptocurrency adoption barriers.
TRON and MixMarvel bring high production values and deep gameplay to gamers and blockchain enthusiasts alike. Blockchain gaming will transform the misaligned incentives of traditional game economies, introduce fairer monetization practices, provide players with true ownership of in-game assets, and so much more.
MixMarvel has previously created the ETH (Etherium) game HyperDragons. HyperSnakes introduces new abilities and battle royale mechanics to classic Slither.io gameplay. Players can compete with 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 prize pool.
This is the first global, real-time multiplayer blockchain game. HyperSnakes is a breakthrough for the industry in terms of game quality and technological infrastructure. A free-to-play mode where anyone can play and earn, with or without a wallet, removes the usual entry barriers found in blockchain games. The gameplay and reward system should attract mainstream audiences and create wider adoption for crypto and blockchain.

The beta launches March 1st.
HyperSnake’s core gameplay is similar to its predecessor. Control your snake avatar, collect dots to grow longer, and defeat other players to become the longest snake in the arena. The mechanics are easy to pick up and offer enough depth to keep players entertained.
MixMarvel is upping the ante by adding several features to shake things up. Snakes can now acquire abilities like shielding, EMPs, speed boosts, and more. Use them wisely to get an edge on the competition!
As the game progresses, the play zone shrinks to facilitate interaction between the players and put their skills to the test. Some players will play defensively as they try to stay alive in cramped corridors, and others will aggressively attempt to capture airdrops that contain valuable resources and cryptocurrency rewards.
On March 19th, during the week of GDC, TRON will be hosting a blockchain gaming mini-summit in association with Cocos-BCX. The half-day event, running from 1pm to 7:30 pm is free to attend and will provide a focused space for blockchain game developers, platforms, tool-makers, investors, press, and others interested in the space to discuss key issues, trends, and opportunities in a relaxed setting.
