    I personally really enjoyed it, after I got used to the horrible lag I had to work through.
    It took real effort to fight through the lag and buggy platforms (the ones moving up and down kept leaving me behind mid-air), but I managed to crap a fair amount of MANA, a tiny bit of MATIC, a couple of cryptokitties and some DCL wearables I hope will sell well 😉
    I enjoyed it though I hope Decentraland will respect their community enough to manually send ALL the prizes where players can show the transactions that failed due to contract errors.
    I certainly enjoyed seeing one of my first Cryptoartworks on display in Momus Park, just outside Tomb Chaser, as well as taking a look at my giant billboard in the DCL Art Fest !

      and yes, I’ll certainly revisit.
      Though probably to visit specific places or locations for events or competitions, or try a new game that looks interesting.
      I won’t wander around blindly in the wilderness looking for new lands to explore 😉

    I purchased like a new data pack just to play this game, and my data was exhausted within very less time.
    I spent 4 GB on day 1 and played only for around 1 hour 30 minutes but didn’t win anything and was only surprised my data got exhausted so fast. Yesterday I played around 4 hours, was little more interesting as at least it showed me my aim in the game of how to win, but it was very difficult to achieve and I didn’t win anything except sweet game time.. Atleast the target game arena was worth while but daunting with requiring like 4 to 6 clicks per second and not knowing how responsive the connectivity was. Another game required me to find 5 keys, I found only 4 and I think it got reset to 0 keys or timed out after I went a space outside the game arena border while searching hard for the 5th key. However the experience maybe cool.
    CryptoDozer is or was comparatively better than most such games, easy to win NFTs for newbies but very less market and value. I may not play Decentraland again, unless something profiting or attractive.
