The markets are still down and full of fear and doubt. Did this affect crypto gaming? Apparently not, the number of players stays steady and even seems to recover from last week’s dip. The NFT trading volume is getting lower though, but floor prices of blue-chip project seem to stand quite strong.

The top 3 stays the same but we notice the impressive comeback of Crazy Defense Heroes. Never far from the top, the mobile tower defense game often sees a big increase in the number of players when special rewards are introduced. Mobox is losing some steam and Sunflower Land is now well established in this top and is the most played game on Polygon.

The Crypto Punks trading volume has risen, but at the moment, none of them are listed for sale on OpenSea. After a successful mint and some hype around the project, Chimpers jumps straight to 4th place.
