.how to play.
You play Dorak the Krawk, who escaped on a rowboat after the Black Pawkeet had a raid on Krawk Harbour. Using Dorak in his boat, steer toward and through the dubloons left behind from the Black Pawkeet, but you need to avoid the mine bombs. The up arrow accelerates your boat, down arrow reverses, right arrow turns your boat right, and left arrow turns it left. Also, avoid the occasional whirlpools by accelerating in the opposite direction, and out of the way of any mines.
Game type is action ; NP ratio is 1.25 ; Difficulty is 4.5 ; and you can find this game on Krawk Island. Earn an avatar playing this game, when you get a score of 2,500. Earn the first, second, or third trophy, depending on the daily scores for the game.
I have two strategies to play this game.
The first way is to allow the bombs to follow your trail, keeping them in the middle of the wind ow. How to do this: Use the accelerate button, or up arrow, near the bombs until they start to follow you, and attract them to the middle of the wind ow, then continue to steer around the grouped bombs in the middle by steering around them in a large circle, while collecting the dubloons. Why this strategy works: there is a maximum of nine active bombs at once, no more. (so if you were to make two bombs run into each other and blow up, you would have seven bombs, and then only two more could appear until more of those bombs disappear.) Why this strategy doesn't work: well, nine bombs are the most allowed at one time, but that is a lot. It increases the chances of running into a mine, it also would svck if one of the dubloons appeared in the middle of your group of mines, which makes it so much more work because then you have to go out of your way to try to steer them away to another part of the wind ow. Plus, if some of the mines in the group run into each other, you don't know where the next set of mines will appear, so you will have to concentrate on that and the remaining mines in the group still left=] Yet people still like this strategy.
The second way to play, is to row around, after every two bombs, until the two collide. Then go fetch the dubloon until there are two more mines, and repeat. How to do this technique: Collect one dubloon, the first will make one bomb appear, then collect one more dubloon which will make a second bomb appear. Then, row in the middle of, and infront of both bombs until they run into each other. Reapeat those steps over and over until you have a high score. This works because you rarely have a chance to run into any bombs. I also think consistency is the key, with this strategy you repeat the same thing over and over, and it works! With the first strategy, you sometimes have to go out of your way which is difficult and takes a long time.
: Please don't neomail me with your arguments of why you think the first strategy is better. I honestly don't care
. I put both ways out there and you are free to choose which to use, I'm not telling anybody one way is better than the other, it's just the one I prefer. So don't waste your time mailing me about it.
♥ When you head toward a dubloon, accelerate your boat, because sometimes a mine appears right behind a dubloon and if you go fast enough, you can usually go right through it before it activates.
♥ The mines follow you, so be careful. And the closer you are to a mine, the faster it travels toward you.
♥ make sure you're signed off of any instant messengers, because a pop-up can disturb your game and make it inactive, there are no pause buttons on dubloon disaster... unless you use strategy 2
♥ type "scallywags" during your game to make a whirlpool appear. You can only use this cheat once each game.
♥ type "blackpawkeet" to increase your chances of making a hundred dubloon appear.
♥ the mines destroy each other if they collide.
do you have a cheat that i don't have covered? let me know!
