Benji Bananas Game Overview
Benji Bananas is a free-to-play physics mobile game. However, if you want to earn crypto tokens from this game, then you need to purchase the Benji Bananas Membership Pass NFT (ERC 1155). The game is simple; it is a platform runner where you guide your monkey and swing from vine to vine to collect fruits. The fruit collection will help you get upgrade items that cover the new skins of the game's cosmetics. Moreover, you will also get your hands on a jetpack, an eagle ride, a speed boost, and more.
How to Play Benji Bananas?
The first thing you need to do is download this mobile game from either the Google Play Store or the App Store. The next step involves connecting your wallet to the game. In case you already have MetaMask on your mobile device, you can head directly from the app to the game. Besides, you can also go to Benji Bananas and attach the wallet. Then you must obtain a membership pass in order to play-and-earn. Head to OpenSea, or Coinbase, or Rarible, or LooksRaer, and buy the Benji Bananas Membership Pass for 0.1 Ethereum. Once you buy the pass, go through the pass verification and sign in to Google or the App Store. Finally, you will need the KYC (Know Your Customer) verification that is required on every Animoca Brands game. KYC makes sure that everyone has the same chances and helps stop identity theft, cheating, money laundering, and other bad things from happening.
Benji Bananas Tokenomics
The game's "play to earn" system revolves around the PRIMATE token, which is its core element. Players having PRIMATE tokens can swap them with other fungible tokens in the Animoca Brands ecosystem, like SAND, REVV, PROS, TOWER, GMEE, QUID, and BONDLY. However, the primary pairing of the PRIMATE token is with APECoin from Yuga Labs and BAYC. The total supply of PRIMATE tokens is 206,000,000,000 tokens. These tokens will make it into the game in stages via different launch events. Also, the tokens will be given out by two different systems: the liquidity allocation and the play-to-earn pool, and the reserve treasury and marketing allocation.
All tokens will be minted in the four categories mentioned above. The reserve treasury may transfer tokens from its own place to others. The division of the tokens is as follows:
- Total Supply: 2,060,000,000
- Play-to-Earn: 235,000,000
- Liquidity: 125,000,000
- Treasury: 1,500,000,000
- Marketing: 200,000,000
Benji Bananas Gameplay
The gameplay is quite simple and addictive, but the interesting part of this casual game is the addition of the physics element. Once you start swinging with the help of vines and gain momentum, the game gets super exciting. The momentum is the key to getting farther on the stage and collecting bananas. If you grab the vine from the top, you will lose momentum, and vice versa. The more you progress into new worlds, the more challenges you will face. So, watch out; you might grab a snake instead of the vine.
