Overview

Gameplay

Undead Blocks is the world's first AAA kill-to-earn first person zombie shooter.

There are plenty of ways to earn rewards in the game:
- Killing zombies daily
- Boost earnings via Weapon Loadout NFTs
- Leaderboard incentives to earn Gold ZBUX
- Earn Standard ZBUX = level up Weapon Loadout NFT + build equity

A Wagyu Games account is required to start playing and earning. Once registered:
1. Look out for ZBOXs on the map containing ZBUX
2. Secure a Weapon Loadout to grant full access to the game and be eligible to earn Standard and Gold ZBUX at a faster rate
3. Enjoy other game modes like: Solo, Squads, and SpeedRunning, Massacre, and more

Players start the game with a weapon and a combat knife. The objective is to kill as many zombies as possible in all game modes (survival and speed based). Additional Weapon Loadout NFT can be found in random places in the map.

Each kill will grant the player corresponding XP which can be used to obtain: weapons, grenades, perks, doors.

Loot Coffins

- Contain weapon or character skins that can be traded and sold on the secondary market
- Each NFT has a fixed limited supply = gets rarer over time
- Can be purchased with Gold ZBUX or $UNDEAD token (discounted)

Why I'm Bullish

Cross-platform availability. Undead Blocks can seamlessly integrate to a Playstation or Xbox controller either via a Bluetooth connection or a plug-in. The in-game icons are also tailored to adjust to the controller automatically.

Gas-free transactions. Thanks to IMX's scaling solution using ZK-rollups, players can enjoy gas-less transaction, making it easy for developers to scale transactions.

Fun ways to earn crypto with friends. Undead Blocks encourages players to team up with your friends to enter contests and earn crypto together (Squads mode). There are also Daily Leaderboard Challenges which incentivizes the top players of the game.

Good strategy to use cosmetic items to generate microtransactions (revenue). Weapon skins and character skins are used by players to show-off their status symbol in-game. This is also the best way to generate liquidity through the Loot Coffin sales.
