Overview

8, 10, 15 Abilities

Quests

Quest Quests are tasks you can complete to earn additional XP. To accept a quest, you must walk to a yellow exclamation mark on the map and tap it. Then, follow the instructions of the quest. You can only have one active quest at a time.

Step Score

The Step Score is a number between 1 and 1,000 that reflects your health. The score considers your height, weight, sex and your walking activity. The score is a relative measure of health. A person with a score of X + 1 statistically is a tiny little bit healthier than a person with a score of X.

If you are interested in a more comprehensive reflection of your health, we recommend our core product: the dacadoo Health Score.

Team Battles

The team battle is fought each day between the red and the blue team. It runs from 5:00 am to 9:00 pm. The team that earns more points is victorious. You must reach level 5 to participate in the team battle. A random team battle is played every day.

Battle Goal
Gem Collection Gem Collection Collect gems that appear on the map. Each collection earns you at least one team point, sometimes more.
Capture the Flag Capture the Flag Collect flags and return them to a base. Each time you return a flag to a base, you and nearby team mates earn a team point. In addition, the base is reserved for your team for 2 hours.
Power-Up Power-Up Collect power-ups that appear on the map. Collecting power-ups also grants your a temporary effect which increases the number of team points you earn for collecting the next power-up.
