Battle Showdown is a 2D platform fighter that has a flash game feel. If you are a fan of Super Smash Bros or The legendary Soldat game you will enjoy playing this with your friends or against other players. Battle Showdown is all about fun and using your collectable characters to battle others. The team is constantly looking to expand their collection of playable characters and they give communities a chance to have their favorite Web3 characters in the game.
The gameplay is like a classic 2D platform fighter with different game modes to choose from like a free for all and team deathmatch. The character that you choose will determine your starting weapon but you can find new weapons and boosts like health, ammo and armor on the ground while in the game. Your objective is simple: eliminate the enemies by any means necessary. You also have different weapons appearing on the map to help you defeat your opponents: banana guns, rifles, shotguns, and miniguns. You jump around the level using vertical platforms to ambush and escape your enemies. When you die you respawn in a couple of seconds and start over.
The overall design of the game is visually very pleasing and most importantly it also runs extremely well. I didn’t experience any lag while playing online with other players for a few hours. By winning the matches you will earn raw materials that you can then forge into items to be sold for GEMs. It's a perfect game to play with friends to have a blast for a few hours and maybe even earn a little money as well.
When you start playing you have the option to log in with Metamask, Facebook, or Google account. So prior Web3/crypto experience isn’t required at all. But I found the Metamask wallet log-in to be very easy and it’s quite nice to have those in-game materials and GEMs to be stored there automatically when playing. In theory you can earn while playing but the earning potential isn’t anything too crazy. If you are interested in making money you can farm materials and get a stack of GEMs to be sold or used for other stuff in the Ethlas metaverse.
Battle Showdown has quite an impressive list of backers and partners. I believe the future will be very bright for the game and I look forward to seeing what NFTs they bring into the game next. Battle Showdown utilizes Binance smart chain as its blockchain. Binance smart chain makes all the in-game transactions fast and seamless.
Battle Showdown is part of the Ethlas Metaverse and has a sizable community behind it. If you need help or have questions, there are a lot of helpful people on Discord. You will not have trouble finding players for matches since the game seems popular and there are a lot of active players fighting in the arenas.
