The Moonsama Battle Engine is an innovative gaming component unlocking new metaverse experiences. It enables auto-chess style battles between players' NFT collections across diverse environments.
The Battle Engine allows players to select NFTs from their collection to battle as fighters. The NFTs have associated stats and skills that determine their combat abilities.
Players take turns choosing moves and attacking opponents in turn-based matchups. The results depend on each NFT's strengths and weaknesses, the moves chosen, and an element of chance.
Under the hood, the Engine resolves intricate battle logic, chaining reactions and conditional effects. Detailed battle logs track every action, allowing smooth animations.
The Battle Engine is currently implemented in Pondsama, where players collect, breed, and battle with Pondsama Fish NFTs. The Pondsama metaverse interconnects with other Moonsama environments through the Multiverse Portal.
This integration allows Pondsama players to bring their NFTs to life in engaging matchups. The portal also enables cross-metaverse chat so players can interact during battles.
On the technical side, the Engine leverages Sama Network for low-cost NFT operations. It also bridges assets across chains like Ethereum and Polkadot for true multi-chain experiences.
In early Telegram-based testing, the Engine facilitated over 13,500 battles in one week - approximately 1.3 per minute! This demonstrated strong initial engagement.
Over 6,000 Pondsama NFTs were bridged during testing, showing players eagerly linking their assets. The team continues optimizing performance based on learnings.
Developer HeaxSama has shared insights on Twitter into handling the Engine's complexity. The detailed battle logs enable sequenced animations even with chained effects.
Beyond battles, the Engine has showcased potential for processing data like leaderboards. This highlights its versatility for tasks beyond gaming.
The Battle Engine's adaptability and metaverse integration point to exciting possibilities:
The Engine promises to push blockchain gaming to new frontiers. Its capacity to unlock utility and fun from NFTs is only the beginning!
