These are the base drawings for Daky and the three types of monsters. They needed to be drastically different from one another in both shape and color so that they could easily be distinguished on the game board (see below). 
If you'd like to play Daky in Monsterland, it's currently live and free to play: Let's Play!
This dead-Daky is what you see when you get eaten by a monster, or run into a bone pile (which is also deadly to our spunky protagonist). 
There isn't a defined winning condition since in true 80's-style, it just keeps getting more difficult until you lose; the goal is to beat your previous high score.
