Bored Ape Yacht Club has once again given life to the NFT industry. Between January 16 and 23, the Sewer Pass, an access token that allows BAYC holders participate in interactive minting experiences — nearly half the total ETH NFT volume was BAYC-related assets.
The desire to compete in Dookey Dash, a skills-based endless running game created by BAYC Yuga Labs, is driving this volume. Sewer Pass holders can only play Dookey Dash. They try to get as far through the BAYC’s sewers as possible, while avoiding obstacles and collecting “fragments”. The game was released on January 18th. It is part of a larger mechanic that allows players to earn rarer mints.
In the last week, videos of players streaming their runs have been appearing all over social media. Many also shared their high scores. How do you score high in Dookey Dash We’ve compiled a list of tips and tricks that will help you increase your chances of landing on the Dookey Dash leaderboard.
Tip 1: Time your dash just right
Dookey Dash scores depend on three factors: the length of your sewer run, how many fragments you collect, and how many obstacles are destroyed. One of the key elements of the game is dashing, which gives you a speed boost. This allows you to speed forward and smash through any obstacles that are in your way. It is important to time your dash. If you wait too long, you might not be able to react to the unexpected obstacles that may have been hidden behind the wall. You might not be able to get through the wall fast enough if you start too early. Avoid dashing too soon; running into pipes beyond walls is more likely than any other way to end your run.
Tip 2 – Be strategic with fragments
Your overall score will increase if you collect fragments, both common and uncommon. As the sewers get more clogged, avoid taking too much risk for common fragments. Instead, focus on running as long as you can.
Tip 3: Reset your dash
Dashing is a tool. Use it carefully. Your ability to score points and even your entire run can be affected by the time it takes for your dash cool down. The dash can be used to smash through large objects or break through wooden boards. It immediately resets and can be reused for any future use. You will also get a few points if you use the dash to break through large objects. These points add up quickly, so you can use them to your advantage especially in the early stages, when there are fewer objects in the sewers.
Tip 4 – Buy a Powershart Pack using ApeCoin
Dookey Dash players who spend 2 ApeCoin ($APE), the native token of the BAYC universe, will be rewarded by a Powershart Pack. This booster pack includes 10 minutes of real-time upgrades to the game. You will have a better chance of finding rare items in sewers and your dash cooldown time will be cut by half.
Tip 5 – Don’t pay attention to your score
Pay less attention to the score at the top left corner of your screen. It distracts from your running and can be distracting. You can use the music to gauge your progress throughout your run. You can turn off the music and play your own music if it is bothersome.
Tip 6 – Play Dookey, but not dirty
Some might feel tempted to cheat the game or bend the rules to get a high score due to the high stakes. Greg Solano, co-founder of Yuga Labs, recently addressed this issue via Twitter. He explained that Yuga Labs collects some metadata from every run of the game. Any foul play will likely be revealed and lead to an essential ban from future mint reveal.
A Web3 citizen and software engineer named cygaar recently shared their experience in analyzing the game’s code to discover flaws that could allow them to exploit Dookey Dash. They discovered a loophole that allowed them to score high scores while still passing through all obstacles. Then they reached out to Yuga Labs for help. Anyone trying to use a similar technique is unlikely to succeed. Players should follow the script to be eligible for The Summoning, BAYC’s next NFT drop.
You are all welcome, dashers.
