I just heard from one of the top players on Dookey Dash that lots of the folks advertising paid high-scores are using botted code. Cheating is apparently rampant.
Be careful folks. When Yuga runs their audits, those passes will be disqualified & become worthless.

We want Dookey Dash to be as fair as possible. As we've mentioned previously, we will not allow cheating. We’ve already noticed some #DookeyDash Sewer Passes associated with cheating. Those scores have now been removed from the leaderboard.

How is Dookey Dash getting cheated?
Easy to hack the obstacles in #dookeydash
Less easy to validate a score (and no intention to try @samwcyo 😅).
I wonder if I should run a obstacle-less game as an artistic performance until the sewer closes in 7 days and see what score I can get live. pic.twitter.com/dmFkNp23gD

When you play Dookey, every single mouse movement, every obstacle you see or hit, every Fragment you collect, every Dash, every millisecond is collected and submitted. Yuga’s simulator then replays your entire run on their server and if anything doesn’t match… CLOGGED.

For the time spent on it, it actually performed very well. (23/43) pic.twitter.com/0UdKL7SYPB
