Block Explorer

Block Explorer is a 2D adventure game in which players conquer dynamically generate levels based on data from the Bitcoin blockchain. The game has a retro, 8-bit aesthetic to draw attention to the technical aspects of Bitcoin. Attributes of the real-life Bitcoin blockchain, such as mining difficulty and height, are used to seed the blocks in the game, and as the Bitcoin blockchain grows, so will the game. Players have the ability to upgrade their character in game as the amass fake virtual currency from each level. Inside the levels the player does their best to avoid authorities using quick movements and the ‘HODL’ blast. It is unlikely any single player will complete all 500,000+ (and growing) levels, but there is an online leaderboard to track other’s progress.
