What is Celestial Cyclones?

Updated: Sep 30, 2021

Celestial Cyclones is (to my knowledge) the first game generated 100% on chain, created by Hideo Takahashi. It is an interactive experience that takes inspiration from the classic breakout game. This project was created on the ArtBlocks platform.


Gameplay

  • Destroy the barriers to reach the core

  • Each barrier acts as a musical note, creating a unique melody each game

Controls

  • Click to start

  • Left and right arrow keys or Mouse/trackpad to control the baton

  • P to pause


It's a simple concept but super addicting once you find some good levels. I played a ton of levels last night until I found a couple I liked. Being the degenerate I am, I had to ape in.

Analysis

I really like the idea of being able to "own" games on the blockchain. I have no doubt that this will spawn a new wave of game-based NFTs that are created entirely on chain. Celestial Cyclones is the perfect mixture of art & gaming and I haven't seen anything like it in the NFT space before. There is a very low supply so I can see the floor price increasing rapidly if these games resonate with the NFT community.


Let's play a game. If you can beat Celestial Cyclones #572 in under 40 seconds you will be entered to win an NFT from my collection. (bonus points if you beat my score too)
