Cometh is a pioneering strategy game in which players can win valued tokens and leverages in which makes use of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) ecosystem to generate a long-lasting and sustainable outer space. Cometh makes use of all of the Ethereum blockchain’s fundamental functionalities, as well as an Optimistic Rollup layer 2 scaling solution. Cometh is a game in which you operate spaceships (also known as astrominers) circling around huge stars, with the purpose of positioning oneself close to passing asteroids (also known as clever asteroids). You’ll be able to mine tokens from that asteroid if you get close enough. Your spaceship can be dragged towards other spaceships for a price in order to better position itself. Players can experiment with these costs in order to make the most of their strategic location in space. In the game, smart asteroids are smart contracts that depict asteroids.
Smart asteroids follow an elliptical path around the star they orbit, according to Kepler’s first law. A smart asteroid’s route parameters are selected at random from the block hash in which the asteroid occurs. The game’s central mechanism is pulling. Other players can select each spaceship for a pulling service in exchange for a charge given to the spaceship’s owner. Owners of spaceships have complete control over the fee they charge. When a spaceship is dragged, the parameters of its trajectory become the total of both trajectories (its own and the “puller’s”) divided by two. For the spaceship that supplied the service (the “puller”), the trajectory remains unchanged. It’s worth mentioning that one of the game’s primary problems will be figuring out the best way to mine smart asteroids. Individual pulling prices and smart asteroid paths are also dynamic.
It’s also expected that when players get close to smart asteroids, they’ll adjust their prices for pulling services to make a more consistent income. All prices in the game are defined in MUST in order to have a consistent unit of account. MUST is an abbreviation for Most Useful Space Thing, not just another easy-to-remember ticker. “[…] MUST be the motor of future achievement, not a slow dimming light from a once bright time,” as astronaut and moonwalker Buzz Aldrin memorably stated. The MUST come in a limited edition of 1,000,000 pieces. It is a valuable commodity in Cometh, and it can be used for astronomical purposes. Therefore, the Cometh protocol employs a smart contract known as TUBE to both store and use the players’ MUST. Players must rely on their abilities to locate action sequences that result in the highest mining payouts.
While pulling affects a spaceship’s position and orbit, players can also use the spaceship’s perks, such as the engine, drill tool, and aura. Crew members will also have a part in the future. The spaceship’s engine can switch between different colored thrusters, drawing the spaceships through the orbit at different speeds. Drill tools are floating spheres that provide special mining effects, such as guaranteed returns while mining a specific token. Depending on the asteroid’s depletion and distance from the spaceship, the aura of the spaceship affects mining efficiency. Some aura will aid with the excavation of token-rich asteroids (surface digging), while others will aid in the excavation of very depleted asteroids (digging deeper into the asteroids). Skilled players will look for asteroids that are cheap to approach in terms of pulling expenses, that will yield the maximum rewards based on the perks accessible to the players, and will select the best thruster to stay as close to the asteroid as feasible.
