Daud.io is a fleet-based space combat game, where players are pitted against each other in a free for all arena. The game’s skill-based combat system involves accumulating a fleet over time by attacking enemies, then leveraging the individual directionality of your fleets bullets to outmaneuver your enemies and destroy them. Each player begins the game with a small fleet of basic ships, each controlled independently by your mouse pointer. By destroying enemy fleets and collecting special power ups, your fleet grows in power, allowing you to take on the most difficult foes. Size isn’t everything, however, and through our unique combat system, a small fleet in the hands of a skilled player can easily overpower the largest armada.
To begin your journey in the daud.io arena, start by focusing your efforts on the smaller ships flying around the arena. Use these to grow your fleet. Be wary of other players while your fleet is too small, as they can easily take advantage of your small numbers to destroy you. As you grow your fleet, leverage the power ups scattered around the map to gain an advantage over your foes. Each ship in your fleet moves individually towards your mouse, so to best stronger players you will need to utilize different bullet spreads to both weaken their numbers with larger volleys, then finishing them off with concentrated bursts.
