At the time of writing, Space Mermaids is only available on PC. Interestingly, the team is working to roll out support for mobile.
For context, Space Mermaids is a skill-based experimental blockchain game that allows players to compete in a 30-day tournament for high scores. The top high scorers will be allowed to mint the NFT at an upcoming date. Space Mermaid’s difficulty level is the same as Tetris’.
How to Play Space Mermaids
Since the game is built on XRP Ledger, players must connect their Xumm wallet to play. You can scan the QR code on the Space Mermaids website on your PC using your mobile Xumm wallet.
After scanning, you will receive a notification prompting you to agree to the game’s terms of service.
Playing the game is free. Players are not required to own any crypto before they can play. However, players need to have the Xumm wallet to track their scores. You can play the game using your PC keyboard.
