Bloxmith, the player-first Web3 gaming studio, today announced that the open beta for Raiders Rumble, its unique 1v1 squad battler game for mobile powered by the Flow blockchain, is now available for download on Google Play and Apple App Store.
Raiders Rumble challenges players to apply fast-paced strategic decision making in countering the moves of their opponents. Built as a strategic esports game for the masses, it features a daily rotation of tournament modes where the top 50 percent of participants can win in-game items or RUMB tokens, Raiders Rumble’s project token.
Furthermore, players do not need a crypto wallet or digital collectibles (NFTs) to start playing and enjoying the game. To maintain competitive integrity, digital collectibles in Raiders Rumble do not provide any in-battle advantage, though they have several other unique features that make them highly valued by collectors.
“For our first game, we wanted to pioneer a new type of competitive mobile strategy game that would help bridge the gap between traditional and Web3 gamers,” said Bloxmith Co-founder and CEO Wayne Lee. “We are delighted to be working on the Flow blockchain – it solves the scalability problem for games and digital collectibles. With frictionless onboarding, social logins and familiar payment methods, Flow is built from the ground up to make it easier for mainstream users and brands to transition from Web2 to Web3.”
As part of the launch and esports nature of the game, Raiders Rumble will host three Flow-sponsored bonus tournaments. Strategy gamers will have the opportunity to win FLOW tokens, with a total prize pool worth $USD 120,000 in FLOW up for grabs for the best strategy gamers around. These Flow-sponsored tournaments are scheduled to take place between March 23-31, with more details on the Raiders Rumble website here.
“Raiders Rumble is a compelling example of a mobile game that can simultaneously appeal to a mainstream audience while introducing them to the power of Web3 gaming powered by Flow,” said Chirag Narang, Head of Product at Flow. “The Bloxmith team’s innovative take on game design and player onboarding aligns strongly with Flow’s vision and goals for our ecosystem around gaming and onboarding mainstream users to Web3.”
Founded in December 2021 by a group of passionate gaming veterans from Riot Games, Blizzard Entertainment, Pumpkin VR and Facebook Gaming, Bloxmith’s mission is to create player-first games that are still fun even after 1000+ plays. Bloxmith’s investors include Infinity Ventures Crypto, Dapper Labs, Vayala, Moon Holdings, Bitoro, SEA Pixel, and Results.io.

Whats web3 vs web2? Is 3 supposed to be some sort of decentralised ledger bitcoin-type model?
They tend to downplay it, but a key element of Web3.0 is supposed to be a lack of anonymity. It’s replaced by “pseudonymity”, where you have a consistent ID, but it isn’t ordinarily connected to your physical self. This is painted as allowing websites to individualize what you see. (We all want that, right? [/sarc]) The content you see won’t be what was directly placed on the website by some human, but instead what an AI thinks you should see.
Basically, Web 3.0 will make it harder to surf anonymously and get content that hasn’t been filtered according to somebody else’s model of what you should get to see. They might not know your street address, but they’ll know it’s YOU.
I suppose this has upsides for trust, making it harder for somebody to impersonate you online, but the downside is pretty big, too: Ending up wrapped in an end to end individually crafted bubble, and it ain’t you blowing the bubble.
