Vitalik Buterin provided a brief description of the game and disclosed that he had created it in 2011, prior to his involvement in the cryptocurrency industry. In the game, players assume the role of commanders, directing their armies against the evil forces of a wicked wizard and his demon minions.

The game is situated in the prosperous realm of Queen Madrina, which has become the target of the terrorist organization Sabayon. As commander, players would assemble a small army of loyal soldiers to combat the adversary. 

The tutorial provides a brief introduction to the game, describing the circumstances the player must face as a commander and the mechanism they must employ to command their army.  The game’s design appears to be straightforward, and its fundamental strategy was straightforward to master.

The majority of the gameplay consists of commanding units by right-clicking next to them and left-clicking to direct them to a specific location. The combat is automated and the user is not required to issue specific commands.

Despite its simplicity, Slasha is an enjoyable way to kill time. The game may be rustic, but it is a welcome break from the monotony of the cryptocurrency industry.

What are Ethereum IPFs?

Ethereum IPFs stands for Ethereum InterPlanetary File System. However, it seems there might be a misunderstanding or confusion regarding the terminology. The term “IPFs” does not specifically exist in the context of Ethereum or the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS).

On the other hand, IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) is a peer-to-peer protocol designed for decentralized file storage and retrieval. It aims to create a global, distributed file system that allows users to address files based on their content rather than their location. IPFS can be used in conjunction with Ethereum to store and retrieve large files, such as images or documents, in a decentralized manner.

However, it is important to note that IPFS is a separate protocol and technology from Ethereum. While Ethereum can interact with IPFS by using the protocol’s addressing system, they are distinct entities serving different purposes within the blockchain and distributed file storage landscapes.
