Frequently Asked Questions
Crushyt is a mobile game that takes place in the roman era. You’ll be able to explore this world using your real-world location and interacting with augmented reality elements: mines, chests, shrines and animals. You’ll need to hunt animals to feed your troops, earn elixir in chests and dig gold in mines.
You’ll start with a troop of gladiators, hunters, miners and explorers. With time you will enhance your troops and get stronger. Your Gladiators can battle with other players to win Crushyt Points (CP) and enter the scoreboards. Any other action you do, will earn you XP (Experience Points), that allows you to level up.
This world is set for you to explore, but if you don’t feel in the mood for walking, you can send hunters/miners/explorers on your behalf to gather resources. This will cost elixir and consume time and they won’t be available to perform other actions. If you are in the mood of walking, the App will track the miles you walk and will give you elixir, that is needed for the remote actions.
This is a game of real-time strategy, where you’ll have to construct a strong set of cards and manage resources (gold, diamonds, food, elixir). You should use them wisely to make progress in the game and to conquer a higher status.
The goal of this game is to build a solid deck of cards, with strong gladiators and special powers. With a robust deck, you can play against other players in tournaments. You will also be able to improve your status, if you conquer a castle, which are placed in strategic points in the map. To do this, you’ll need to level up, by keeping a recurring activity in the game. While you don’t participate in tournaments, you should win Crushyt Points in battles, either by attacking other players or defending from incoming attacks. Curious about your ranking in the game? Check your standings in the Leaderboard (Scores).
The reasons to play this game is for pure entertainment. You can have the same fun you had when you were outside playing other map-based games, though in this game if it’s raining or you’re not in the mood for walking, you can send some of your troops (hunter, miners and explorers) to do the actions on the map for you. That’s a cool thing.
In this game, you can play real-time strategy and combat against other players. Actions happen in the world map and take real time, so your decisions need to be well thought.
Finally, if you like card-collecting games, you’ll have the opportunity to build a strong deck of cards to play in tournament competitions. There is room for sponsoring some of these tournaments, so you will have an extra reason to evolve and be a stronger player on Crushyt.
This game does not require long sessions of gameplay hours. By the opposite. You can spend some minutes per session to do some actions in the game, being compatible with casual gaming during the day. Finally, the game is equipped with support for Augmented Reality, which is always a fun experience, as long as you make sure you are in a safe place.

Once you send the attack, it will take 8 hours plus the travel time. Travel time is calculated by the distance between the two player’s basecamps multiplied by 300km per hour. So, if two players are distant 600km from each other, the attack will take 10 hours.

First and foremost: AP of gladiator A will decrease the HP of gladiator B, and vice-versa. The result of the fight will be calculated as follows: If AP from gladiator A is higher than AP from gladiator B, player A wins that fight, as long as the HP of gladiator A does not go to zero. The same applies on the other side. If both cards die (HP goes to zero) that fight will be a draw. There could be also a draw if both gladiators have the same AP and they don’t die in the fight.
CP points will be the overall result of up to 5 fights between the cards of each player.
Each fight won gives the player 1 CP; each fight lost subtracts 1 CP.
For instance, if player A wins 4 of the fights and looses 1 she will receive 3 CP.
The outcome of the combat can be a number between -5 and +5.
Yes, if you lose a combat, your CP Points will be decreased by the outcome of the combat (-1 to -5).
If you win a combat you will get CP points and an amount of gold. The outcome of the CP in a combat can be a number between -5 and +5. The amount of gold is multiplied by 30. As an example, if the outcome of a combat was +3, you will receive 3 CPs and 60 of gold.
When there is a draw, none of the players will receive CP points. The outcome will zero for both.
Every gladiator card has two attributes: Attack Power (AP) and Hit Points (HP). AP defines the strength of the gladiator. HP defines the health of the gladiator, representing its health. If a gladiator A fights with gladiator B, the HP of A will be decreased by the AP value of B, and vice-versa. If the HP of any card gets to zero or below zero, the card is dead and will show up as a skeleton. You need to apply a resurrect card to revive a dead gladiator card.
