Need more help with the basics?

This may not be what you want to hear, but the game itself is VERY good at explaining the basic concept of the game (ie how to play, how to move items, and what everything is), so if you’re completely lost with the basics the best advice is for you to PLAY THE GAME. Playing the game is the best way to learn how to do the most basic aspects of the game.

Happy Tapping!
