Welcome to BattleBonk


What is BattleBonk?

BattleBonk is a HTML5/JavaScript 2D Canvas-based game inspired by the blockchain crypto asset DogeBonk (Binance Smart Chain token).

Does the game use blockchain technology?

No, it's an isolated web game with no blockchain interactivity. The in-game currency, although called $DOBO, is not the real DogeBonk crypto asset. You will not earn any crypto asset(s) by playing this game.

Who's developing BattleBonk?

It's only me in my spare time.

Will BattleBonk be released as an App for Android/iOS?

No, but BattleBonk is PWA compatible. This means it can be installed on mobile devices for offline play and also becomes fullscreen playable on most platforms. To test if this option is available for your device, navigate to the Game page and if your device supports PWA then something similar to the screenshots below should present.

Due to the nature of the game (using a HTML Canvas renderer with a Javascript codebase) performance varies across devices. Broadly speaking, BattleBonk requires a high specification smartphone for a comfortable gameplay experience.

Will BattleBonk receive Multiplayer support?

Since the game's inception, it was never planned because of the perceived difficulty and complexity. However, since late 2023 I've realised I may be able to implement this. By the end of 2024, I hope multiplayer will be implemented, along with a great many other overdue gameplay features.

Can you add an online Scoreboard?

In 2022/2023 this became a development focus in a bid to add an competitive online element, but it was ultimately abandoned due to complexities in introducing effective anti-cheat detection. An online scoreboard will be pointless if effective anti-cheat can't be implemented. If and when online multiplayer arrives (and therefore server-side authority), online scoreboards will then follow.

I've got a great idea not mentioned here for BattleBonk!

Sweet, let me know via a Telegram DM or Tweet/DM me.

How is the game free to play? Do you accept donations?

It's a small project, and software development is a hobby of mine so what little money it costs, it is well spent. I'm not taking donations, but thanks for the thought! Share the game on social media if you can though :)
