Gunstar is a play-to-earn (P2E) game developed by Worms / Gunbound games. It is a massively multiplayer online role-playing and NFT game built on the Binance smart chain network. A game designed for newbies and professionals, Gunstar allows them to create and engage in an ultimate high shooting game that requires the tactical knowledge of the player. Since its launch, the game has offered players a reality-based adventure. This article looks at how Gunstar is changing the play-to-earn narrative.
Fantasy Star World
Fantasy Star World is a mega-sized virtual world that depicts a peaceful and united life between humans and mystical creatures that dates back to a thousand years.
It is an enormous planet consisting of an array of islands called Pearl Island and is home to all gamers on their mission to defeat these ferocious monsters and save their world. When they complete their assigned missions in Pearl Island, players must acquire enough GSC tokens to engage in further battles on Skyland (a centre-based homeland) that hostile monsters have invaded. In Skyland, fortresses are erected to protect the uninvaded cities against monsters’ invasion.
When arriving in the cities of the continents, players need a house to live in. They can rent a house daily or monthly using $GSC or buy a house with the same token. Players can also upgrade their houses with additional features such as: expanding storage capacity and producing support items for pets. Interestingly, players can also rent out their houses for GSC token income.
Gunstar is a 2D game. Players and their pets are faced with an opponent, either an AI monster or another player with his pets. They will take turns firing at each other with their pets.
The game also features factors and physical conditions like terrains, winds, and storms, influencing players’ gameplay. Thus, players must continuously change their aim and strategy against the enemy simultaneously.
Players own extremely powerful pets, including summoned beasts like dragons, unicorns, etc. Each pet has three unique skills- two normal skills and one unique skill.
There are 23 types of pets with unique strengths and abilities. Their strength and abilities depend on their mystical level like; Normal, Rare, Elite, Legendary, and Ascended.
Players can also create new pets at the boss level. A time-limited event appears in different cities where pet fragments are dropped. When gamers collect enough pet fragments, gamers can merge them to create a new pet.
Renting Pets in Gunstar Metaverse
The pets are the main characters in fights. Difficult levels in the game require pets with higher mythological levels. Acquiring those pets is not an easy task.
Players can rent pets and pay a fee in return to the owner. During the activation time of the pets, you can have access to the full features of the pets once rented.
