Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay takes place on a single screen level where players play as the titular Dave. Dave must defeat a variety of enemies by throwing either eggs or skulls at them, however holding onto either of these will kill Dave after a while. The goal of the game is to rack up as many coins as possible, which is done by successfully killing monsters. Monsters evolve if they fall into the lava at the bottom of the screen and the more evolved a monster gets the more coins Dave gets for killing them.[8][9]
