You might be asking what is SpacePort.
If you were a kid of the 80’s and 90’s, then games like Gradius, 1945, and Space Invaders would sound familiar to you. What’s more nostalgic about it? You used to play it on arcade machines, no?
Now, SpacePort, an arcade-inspired NFT game, is here to bring together NFT-based gaming and the style and mechanics of the old arcade machines.
They’re also planning to improve on the model in the near future, but for now, SpacePort is the main focus of their efforts.
How do you buy SPC?
First, you have to have at least 65-70 USD worth of BNB (to cover also the slippage fees) on your wallet in order to be able to buy SPC. Next, you have to withdraw or transfer it to your Metamask wallet. Then, you have to connect your Metamask wallet to PancakeSwap via the following steps below:
1. Click on Select a currency
2. Click on Manage Tokens
3. Click Tokens
4. Input the contract address (0x21ea8618b9168eb8936c3e02f0809bbe901282ac)
5. Click on Import
Set your slippage fees to 20-26 percent (start with 20 and work your way up…)
Also make sure to have enough liquidity for the gas fee!
Once you’re done (and you have your SPC), connect your Metamask wallet to the game and you’re good to go!
How do you play Spaceport?
Basically, there are three types of enemies in the game: blue, gray, and yellow. Blue is the weakest enemy in the game, while yellow is the hardest to hit (and also the strongest). Luckily for you, they don’t shoot – however, if you let any one of them through, you will lose points (blue deducts the least, while yellow deducts the most – up to 5000 at certain points), so make sure that you don’t let them loose!
You have three weapons: the basic shot, the rocket-boosted shot (which you gain later) and the laser beam (which has to be recharged periodically). All enemies do get destroyed by the laser beam and the rocket-booster shot – though you need some timing to use them in the most efficient way possible!
There are five different types of boosters per game: All-around shot, laser battery (replenishes or adds one charge to your laser), invulnerability (good for catching someone at the last minute, does not give you any points), combo booster (comes in 2, 3, and 5), and gold coin (that gives you basically free points).
The goal of the game is to survive and kill as much as you can…while ensuring that you don’t lose points via enemy breakthroughs.
Good luck with that!
What does SpacePort look like?
SpacePort’s design, as already mentioned, is inspired by the retro arcades of the past. It’s got the colors, the mechanics, and the icons that would – even the UI looks like the one that you would find at an arcade center or a gaming house!
How much do I need to play to get 100%?
If you are a player who reaches scores of 300,000 and above, then reaching the maximum quota should only take less than 20 minutes for you…and that’s a conservative estimate! There are players who are skilled enough to reach the quota within a single game, so it’s really up to your skill and prowess in the arcade.
Take note that you don’t anymore earn once you’ve reached 100% of your quota, unless you happen to get into the leaderboard for that day. Getting into the leaderboard allows you to have the share of the prize pool for that day; who doesn’t want to earn a couple of bucks while playing an arcade game, no?
In this way, both casual and hardcore players have the biggest chance of maximizing their earnings in the game (and reflect the time and effort that they put into the game).
Here’s to hoping that this article helps you realize what is SpacePort and help you get into the action – even if this was not an NFT game, it’s a game that you’ll certainly want to play as it fits the “easy to learn, hard to master” mantra of a good video game!
