Although the world map starts out vague with only a few areas unlocked, as you play through the game, new areas will be revealed and become available to explore. One of the first things you’ll notice are the brightly colored gems sprinkled throughout the map. The yellow jewels denote the name of the current location, as well as advance the main story line, which follows a linear progression. The remaining 4 colors represent different areas of the map, and clicking on these jewels will bring up a side quest dialogue screen. The text for the side quests can be scrolled using your finger, and give a little diversion from the main story line.
Once you begin a quest, the screen is divided into 2 sections. The top half displays an aged parchment while the bottom half shows the letters you can use to create words. Letters can only be used once, and if you need to correct a misspelled word, just tap the backspace button on the bottom right side of the screen. Once you have created a valid word, tap the submit button. The definition will display on the top portion of the screen on the aged parchment, and can be scrolled if necessary using your finger. The exit button on the bottom left of the screen will take you back to the map, but you can always resume where you left off without having to worry about starting over.
Successfully completing a quest will bring up a victory screen where you can choose to submit your score, retry (or repeat) the same quest, or proceed, which will take you back to the map. When a quest is completed, the jewel for that quest appears black on the map.
