This is an exciting development for Octo Gaming and a real opportunity for NFT’s collections. Indeed, the company allows NFT collections to get an attractive and additional utility for their NFTs, entertain the community and NFT holders and above all make the collection visible to dozens of thousands of mobile gamers.

To give you a better idea of what to expect when playing “DROP OUT!”, we’ve included some gameplays.

The Academy & Jungle Setting

The game takes place in a jungle setting, with lush green vegetation, and obstacles such as spikes, holes, PoliceApes, and many more to avoid, set randomly at each game. The background music and sound effects also add to the jungle atmosphere, making the game more immersive. The player start by leaving the Academy and run into the forest.

The Gorilla Character

The gorilla character is the main protagonist of the game, and players will control it using simple swipe gestures to jump or slide.

The gorilla is designed in hommage to the entire DAA NFT Collection, and players will feel invested in helping the gorilla escape the Director of the Academy.

The Gameplay

The gameplay of “DROP OUT!” is fast-paced and challenging, with a variety of obstacles and enemies to avoid. Players will need to use quick reflexes and strategy to outrun the Director of the Academy and collect as many items as possible to increase their score.

In-game Bonuses

Collecting Bananas add +5 points to your score, Collecting Toilet paper add +20 points to your score. One of the most exciting features of the game is the ability to collect beers, which will make the gorilla invincible for a few seconds, just like the star power-up in the classic game Mario.

Forest traps

To enter properly in the toboggan, you need to slide down with your finger at the enter side. Missing it will grant you a “Game Over”. Spades will grant you a direct “Game Over” when your Gorilla touch them, even slightly.

Forests Elements

Touching a barrel will make it explode, granting you again a “Game Over”. In the following screenshot, your Gorilla is still under the beer effect, making him forget the pain. Vines help you jump further to another platform, avoiding the hole underneath..

The Octos NFTs

Octo NFT holders will be able to unlock new in-game functionalities and content. These may include new powers for the gorilla, such as increased speed or jumping ability, or new items to collect. This will add an extra layer of depth to the game, and give players a reason to continue collecting NFTs. The in-game power of this game linked to NFTs will be released in the coming weeks.
