The name of this game was derived from the Japanese word which is explained below:
This is easily understood if you speak Japanese, but maybe a bit trivial for English speakers: “Ton” (豚) is a kanji (Japanese character) that translates to “Pig”, thus “CrypTon” can be translated to “CryptoPig”, which became “Crypt-Oink” in English! source
Due to the way the blockchain is built and how competitive the game market is becoming, crypto-oink made sure they got some things right that will set them apart from all other game dapps;
Characterization: If you play the game, you will be able to see how the characters appear in 3D animated form.
Varieties: Each cryptons are uniquely created graphic wise. Although this cryptons are genderless, there are over 3.6 trillion cryptons provided in the game that are waiting for users to discover them.When you start your own ranch, you can breed and create new cryptons with rare forms.
First timers: The dapp was created in such a way that new users can find there way around the dapp by giving us little clue from a crypton named staff.With this, crypto novice can find there way around.

After signing in, you get an assistance from staff Ton who with his/her messages will give you a step by step help on how to go about the game. For me, I was given a single crypton which I fed and raced with in the daily quest.
After getting familiar with the game, I was able to partake in a race for my daily quest and was also given a weapon to win the race.
With the help of Staff Ton, I own the race and got myself a gift which was a 300 Oink.

WHAT I DO NOT LIKE ABOUT CRYPT-OINK
It shows that its a Japanese based game and the mobile app displays this with their language all over the place.This can be distracting because it is a world wide game and not for Japanese alone, so I would emplore them to make use of English language first and japanese in lower font.
For first impression, I do not really like the way the homepage is displayed, it looks scanty for a start.
If one do not have Eth, you cannot enjoy the game. I tried playing when I had nothing and played when I had some Eth and I could see the difference.
I still cannot find my way on the app so I had to make use of the online webapp.
The screen is too big for the game characters. My ranch appears small and I have to keep zooming so as to pick the words highlighted on the screen. Words like feed.
I will be rating the game 3/5 which is based on the technical part and characterizatuon.The site loads faster and for giving me staff Ton as an helper on the dapp.I would like to tell the developer to make use of the space on my screen and not let the cryptons and their activities be congested.I would also like to access the site and be able to play a challenge or quest without having any Ethereum in my wallet.
