Explore in the universe, occupy planets, and collect resources.

Resources are divided into two types: ‘Energy’ and ‘Silver’.

Energy is used for resource transportation and planet occupation, and silver mines are used for planet upgrade.

Level 0 planets cannot be upgraded or stored silver mines.

Each planet can automatically increase its energy until it reaches the energy limit.

Only some special planets can produce silver mines.

(As shown in the picture below: the lightning icon is the energy, and the ZK icon is the silver mine)

Each planet has a natural level. Level 0 is the lowest and cannot be upgraded. Planets level 1 and above can be upgraded through using silver mines.

Click the planet, and click the details button to view the detailed information of that planet.

Detailed information is shown below:

The UP arrow in the bottom indicates that this planet can be upgraded.

After clicking, you can see that there are 3 upgrade directions: defense, range, and speed. (As shown below)

When the number of silver mines is reached, you can upgrade.

Multiple players can attack each other’s planet.

It takes extra energy to occupy a planet with wild monsters.

The dotted circle displayed after the planet is selected represents the distance that the current energy can reach. The longer distance, the more energy is consumed. (As shown below)

After selecting a planet, click the ‘Send Resources’ button to start carrying resources to other planets. Below, you can use the lightning icon or the up and down arrows to select the amount of energy as well as the silver mines carried by that trip.

Planets with energy shields or wild monsters need extra energy to occupy. You can use the energy of multiple planets to consume the energy shield little by little until the energy is zero and occupy it.

You can click to buy ‘HAT’ , and use $WAN coins to purchase and upgrade the hats. Hats have different patterns.

Tap the ‘+-’ symbol in the upper left corner of the screen to quickly zoom in and out of the map.

Click the settings button in the upper left corner to export the private key, coordinates, and map. These three elements are essential to resume this game.

The map is continuously expanded and explored through the hash computation.

Exploring the map consumes more CPU, you can click the pause button to stop and continue exploring at any time.

You can bind your Twitter account in the upper left corner and give yourself a customized account name.

Each planet can be created as a Non-fungible token (NFT). The red circled part represents this NFT’s unqiue ID. In the future, such NFT tokens can be traded among users through another NFT trading platform by using WAN coins.

Finally, have fun with Dark Forest and create your unique NFTs!
