GAMEE developed the Arc8 app, which it calls a high-engagement mobile e-sports gaming platform. The full version of the app launched in late October 2021, with 11 play-to-earn game modes up and running.

Mini-games are based on skill, and so players that prefer to earn passively with idle games may want to look elsewhere. With 11 games to choose from, the gameplay is deliciously varied and conveniently located on one mobile app. Crypto games typically require a digital wallet and PC to play. Arc8's platform offers a way for newbies looking to earn to get involved in cryptocurrency gaming.

What is Arc8?

When GAMEE launched the full version of Arc8 in October 2021, it had already attracted 1.5 million players, according to its blog.

The Arc8 platform uses the GAMEE token (GMEE), an ERC-20 fungible utility token launched on the Ethereum blockchain, which is also a bridge to Polygon and the Binance Smart Chain.

GMEE can be earned through sponsored tournaments and winning 1v1 matches against other players. You can use it to purchase the in-game NFT G-Bot at the Arc8 marketplace for scheduled drops. The Arc8 app's built-in wallet holds your earned GMEE tokens, though you can transfer them to outside wallets that support the Polygon network.

You also earn credits, which you can use to improve your skills in practice mode or enter tournaments that can earn you GMEE.

Credits are earned by playing games, completing daily tasks and forming playing streaks. You can claim free credits up to four times a day, according to the app.

Playing Arc8

Get started with the Arc8 gaming platform in three steps:

  1. Download the mobile app on Google Play and the App Store.
  2. Sign in with either your Apple, Gmail or Facebook account. Or sign in as a guest and complete your profile later. A third-party digital wallet isn't required for play or signup.
  3. Choose a game mode and get playing.

You can start playing games right away without completing a profile or attaching a digital wallet. And the 50 free credits gifted to you at signup mean you don't need to invest anything to play. However, to withdraw your earnings, you need a digital wallet that supports the Polygon network, like MetaMask. You must also add GMEE as a custom token.

You have access to 10 game modes through the app — or 11, if you have the in-game NFT:

  • 99 Blocks
  • Asteroids
  • Globo Run
  • Hexonix
  • Marble Dash
  • Pirate Solitaire
  • Pixel Dungeon
  • Samurai Hold'em
  • Solitaire Star
  • Wizard's 21

Choose from three tiers in practice mode. Each game pits you against a random player. If you win, you earn the credits.

You can also participate in tournaments, where you pay an entry and see if you've got the chops to take the winner's pot.

Games are based on familiar classics — 99 Blocks is similar to Tetris (with a twist), while Solitaire games like the Solitaire you already know and Asteroids a direct descendant of (you guessed it) the Atari classic Asteroids.

Sky Lords is the one game that requires an NFT to play. G-Bots battle each other, with your NFT's stats determining the outcome.

What is Arc8's token?

Arc8's native currency is GMEE. It's the utility token of the GAMEE ecosystem, and it's an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain.

While playing the Arc8 platform and winning tournaments, you can earn the token and use it to buy G-Bots and other digital assets.

How does play-to-earn work with the Arc8 platform?

You must enter tournaments to earn the native currency GMEE in Arc8. You may want to tool around with practice mode first to learn the game and hone your skills.

You will eventually run out of credits while playing one of three practice mode tiers, which reward you in credits only:

5 credits to play 9 reward credits
10 credits to play 20 credits to play
18 reward credits 36 reward credits

You can play practice modes of each game at any time, though tournaments are limited, timed events.

Before joining, you can see how much it costs to enter, how many other people are competing and the reward for being top dog.

As an example of prize pools, the Hexonix tournament came with a 50 GMEE prize pool (or $8.45 USD, at the time of writing), while a Sky Lords tournament came with a 3350 GMEE prize pool (or $566.15 USD).

What are the Arc8 NFTs?

Arc8 currently has one type of NFT: G-Bots.

G-Bots are ERC-721 NFTs released for purchase in limited batches or earned by winning matches. Each G-Bot is unique, playable and collectible with differences in color, appearance and stats.


If you own a G-Bot, you can participate in staking events, earn extra bonuses and play Sky Lords. Sky Lords is a G-Bot-only game where your NFT's stats impact the outcome of the game.
