Crypto Raiders is a blockchain dungeon crawler game that utilizes the Polygon network with its cryptocurrencies AURUM, and RAIDER. Crypto Raiders combines the RNG-based RPG genre with new economic elements for players to experience.
In the game, players can raid dungeons, conquer their enemies, earn precious loot and be victorious, but there is a twist; the characters’ deaths are permanent. If an NFT character dies on the battlefield, it can’t be upgraded anymore. To prevent permanent death, players must measure the risk-reward ratio and strategize accordingly. Each move could be the last, so players must take some time to optimize their strategies before each adventure.
In Crypto Raiders, players can explore limited-time dungeons or stable dungeons. The limited-time dungeons can only be raided a few times before it closes meanwhile, stable dungeons are always there to be raided. Whether a player picks a limited-time dungeon or stable dungeon, the player must wait for a certain amount of time for the raid to be completed because exploring is a real-time simulation in the game.
To crawl into the dungeons, players must own an NFT character. In total, there were 7500 NFT characters available during the initial sale, and each of these characters have been generated from nine base characters; John, Mike, Tammy, Old Man, Elves, Orcs, Dark Elves, Cyborgs, and Skeletons. Players have total ownership of their dungeon-hardened NFT characters, which means every NFT character can be traded, purchased, or sold by players on marketplaces. After owning an NFT character, players can start to earn AURUM while playing, an in-game utility token since the game is play-to-earn.
Crypto Raiders has two cryptocurrencies, AURUM and RAIDER. AURUM is mainly created to support in-game activities. It can be used to enter dungeons, recruit NFT characters, craft and enchant items, and PvP duels. Players can earn AURUM tokens by staking or completing quests and dungeons. The more difficult quests or dungeons will help players to earn more AURUM tokens. RAIDER is the governance token of Crypto Raiders. Players can stake on RAIDER to be rewarded with AURUM tokens on a daily basis and can use these rewards to improve their game experience.
Good news, everyone! 8-bit visuals and crypto are combined in one more blockchain game! As a fan of 8-bit visuals and earning as I play, I am very happy about being able to slash monsters with my 8-bit sword while making a profit.
Hello guys and gals! Today, we will delve into the 8-bit dungeons of Crypto Raiders. Don’t forget to bring your torches and spellbooks with you!
Crypto Raiders is an 8-bit dungeon crawler blockchain RPG that utilizes the Polygon network with its cryptocurrencies AURUM and RAIDER. In the game, players can raid 2D dungeons and fight against monsters and bosses to earn loot while making a profit. Each character that a player controls to raid dungeons is an NFT asset, which means characters can be bought, sold, or traded on the marketplaces by players freely.
The whole game actually runs through NFT characters, aka Raiders. Since all activities in the game are based on the Raiders, everything done comes down to Raider development at the end of the day. Players can delve into dungeons in search of great riches by using their Raiders, increase Raider experiences and general equipment quality, and complete quests to craft better gear for Raiders. The most different and interesting thing for me is the permadeath feature of the game. If you die in a battle, you can lose your Raider forever! So strategizing your actions are crucial if you don’t want to lose your cool-looking 8-bit Raider.
Crypto Raiders is not a free-to-play game, you need to buy a Raider in order to experience the game. You can use Crypto Raider’s OpenSea marketplace to buy a Raider. Raider prices vary according to the level, the generation, the race, the equipment, and the boosts it has. Generally speaking, you’ll need to invest around $85 to $100 or around 0.03 ETH for a naked level 1 Raider to begin with. You need a Polygon wallet to make the OpenSea Raider purchase, Metamask can be used for this purpose.
The OpenSea marketplace is a bit like a nudist camp…
Let’s say you bought your first Raider, and you are ready to jump into the dungeons. To play the game, go to the official website of the Crypto Raiders, and click on the “PLAY GAME” button at the top right corner of the screen. You will be greeted with a sign-in page. Since you don’t have a Crypto Raiders account, you can’t sign in. To create a new account, click the “SIGN UP” button below.
This one right there.
After creating your account, you can now dive into the game. When you login into the game with your account and connect your Metamask to the game, you will be greeted with the Raiders page. From here, you can customize your Raiders, send them to the missions, optimize their stats, and review their inventory.

When you click on a Raider, you can see its inventory and stats and change its appearance.
There are some cool haircuts for your Raiders in the game.
Now that we know how to reach the raiders and where they are, we can move on to the fun part of the game; sending them on missions! Missions are the primary source of income and gameplay mechanics of the game. There are basically three main mission types: Memento Mori, Glimmer of Hope, and Hogger’s Revenge. Hogger’s Revenge also has two modes; normal and heroic.
Memento Mori: In this dungeon mission, there are no enemies. You are wandering inside a dark dungeon to reach the treasure room and loot the chest. Upon looting, you may get your first equippable armor for your Raider. Plus, you get to earn a decent amount of experience.
Dark and cold dungeons of Memento Mori.
Glimmer of Hope: This mission is exactly like the Memento Mori mission, but instead of finding and looting a chest for an equippable armor piece, you are looking for a weapon. You can find a weapon from a skeleton and loot it as your first weapon in the game.
Stuck in ribcage? Ouch.
Hogger’s Revenge: In this dungeon mode, you are trying to kill the dungeon boss, Hogger from World of Warcraft. You read it right, Hogger, the leader of the Riverpaw Pack, one of the bosses of the Stockade Dungeon, the one who is standing in front of the tent in the Elwynn Forest that you’ve visited many times with different characters for the "Wanted: Hogger" quest!
Right now, it is the best way to farm experience for your Raider. You can get 333xp even if you lose your battle against Hogger. At the moment, the permadeath aspect of the game is not live. So you don’t have to worry about losing your Raider forever.
If you want to farm XP fast, you should do heroic Hogger’s Revenge missions.
Unfortunately, you can't send your characters on missions forever; there is a mission cap for each Raider. You can send your Raider to the missions three times a week. The mission cap will reset on the Wednesday of each week at midnight. However, there is a backdoor if you don’t want to wait for that long; you can get three more raids by spending 100 AURUM, in-game cryptocurrency, if you want to continue your adventure right away. When you use those three raids and want to buy another three raids for your Raider, however, you need to pay 200 AURUM for an additional three more raids. The prices go up by 100 AURUM when you complete your purchased raids.
Okay, now let’s talk about the money that you can make. You get AURUM tokens when you complete a mission. AURUM tokens can be used to buy in-game items, and also they can be exchanged in the exchange markets, the current price for AURUM is $0.026 right now. Also, RAIDER token holders receive a share of all revenue generated from in-game purchases and activities. But if you ask my honest opinion, the primary moneymakers are the Raiders. If you upgrade your Raider by sending them to missions, you can sell them for a profit in the marketplace. You can sell your Raiders for a decent profit if you spend time with them to upgrade them properly. Let’s say you bought 5 level 1 Raiders for a hundred bucks per Raider, you can sell them when they are fully upgraded for $200 bucks, and this is the minimum price. In this scenario, your profit will be $500. It sounds like a decent amount of profit to me!
