The main competitor of Ookeenga is Clash Royale, a Web2 game which the protocol seemed to draw inspiration from. The main difference would be that players can earn income from Ookeenga.
Killers: There is a PvP feature that would cater to the killer archetype. These are the players that are competitive and want to advance through the leaderboards or compete in tournaments.
Achievers: The PvE game mode can cater to the Achievers as there will be a progressive story mode that connects to the lore of the game.
Miners: Miners are present in the game because gameplay will give a $KAB reward. This incentivizes this archetype in grinding until the energy limit in order to extract as much $KAB as possible.
Creators: Crafting is also a main component of the game as heroes will hold weapons in battle. Therefore creators can be in the form of crafters looking to supply weapons for killers or achievers to progress.
Investors: There is a land gameplay that is planned to be released in the future. As this gameplay will have a resource generating mechanic, it might be coveted asset that will appreciate in value. Investors can also be breeders looking to supply new heroes to new players for a profit.
The objective of the game is to defeat your opponent by taking out the central most tower. A player will use cards on its deck that corresponds to the number of troops they would summon to attack the tower. Each tower has a hero guarding it and has a unique set of spells that would help defend themselves from attackers. A mana bar at the bottom limits the amount of moves a player can make, making this a real-time strategy game. There is a 3-minute time limit where a winner is decided based on the total health points of all three towers if the central tower isn’t destroyed prior to the expiration of the time.
There are four main points of variability that can affect how each NFT is priced in the market. These are Races, Classes, Body Parts, and Rarity. Each race has different characteristics and ultimately determines the number of troops a user can deploy. Classes determine the role of the hero - tank, mage, range, air, and melee - during battle. Body parts give off bonuses to the characteristics of the hero that depend on the rarity of the body part. Rarities range from common, rare, epic, and legend, where the higher the rarity, the more effective the body part is.
