Faucet for free tCRO:

1. Set up MetaMask

Before you start, you'll need to have MetaMask installed on your browser. MetaMask is a browser extension that allows you to interact with blockchain-based applications.

  • Connect your MetaMask wallet to the Cronos Testnet.

  • Make sure you have some tCRO (the testnet version of the CRO token) in your wallet, use the faucet link above. You'll need this for on-chain transactions, such as character creation and purchasing items.

2. Character Creation

Time to create your character!

  • Choose a name, hair color, and skin tone for your character.

  • Your character will be created as an NFT (non-fungible token) and stored in your wallet.

  • When initiating the character creation, you'll need to confirm the transaction in your wallet.

  • Keep in mind that on-chain transaction fees and the mint price will apply.

3. Game Mechanics

Now that your character is ready, let's explore the game mechanics.

  • Walking: Click with your mouse on the location you want your character to walk to.

  • Select: Left-click on enemies, NPCs (non-player characters), and other players to select them.

  • Attack: After selecting an enemy, left-click again to initiate the default attack (skills coming soon) or press the spacebar.

  • Collect Gold and items: Defeated enemies will drop gold and items. Left-click on the gold or press 'C' to collect the nearest item.

  • Healing: Regenerate your character's HP (health points) and MP (magic points) by staying still, or use potions and food for faster regeneration.

  • Buy items:

    • Approach an NPC and left-click to open their shop and view available items.

    • Click on items to add them to your cart. You can add as many as you like.

    • When you're ready to buy, initiate the purchase and confirm the transaction in your wallet.

    • On-chain transaction fees and the purchase price in Gold will apply.

    • After the transaction is complete, it may take a few seconds for the items to appear in your inventory.

4. Performance and Future Updates

We are aware of performance issues, such as lags, in the browser version of BlocTale. We are constantly tweaking and optimizing the game based on user feedback. However, due to technical limitations, we can only do so much in the browser version. Rest assured, we are working on a desktop client version that will provide a smoother and more enjoyable gaming experience including higher graphic features. Stay tuned for future updates!

Now you're all set to dive into the magical world of BlocTale. Keep in mind that this is the alpha version, so expect changes and improvements as we continue to develop the game. Explore, interact with others, and embark on thrilling adventures. Good luck, and have fun!
