We will shortly go through the main functions and describe basic procedures.
If you start the game the first time it will show you the Tutorial Tab.
Generally the Tutorial Tab is opened by the Button A showing a graduation cap symbol.
The Tab “Rules” will give you the opportunity to start the Tutorial for playing the game.
See the Buttons (Tutorial I – VI) marked with a triangle.
There are further Tutorial Buttons if you scroll down the tutorial window…
Video Tutorial links to a playthrough video of the original board game.
Faction Rules will show you the fractions and their abilities.

Tutorial Faction Rules
You have the possibility to have a look at the 14 factions in the menu without starting a game.
Simply click on the Factions Rules Button in the Tutorial Tab “Rules”, The factions viewer will then open.
Each planet houses two factions. If you like to switch planets klick on the desired planet on the lower center of the screen (planet selector A). Selected planets will move into the middle of the selector.
The first faction on this planet is shown and if you like to switch to the second faction klick on the faction name in the upper part of the window (B – the complete title is sensitive).
In this example we have the Lantids on the planet type Terra. We would like to see the Swamp planet and therefor click on the brown Swamp planet in the planet selector A
The view now shows the Swamp planet…also see that the swamp planet moved to the middle of the planet selector (A). The first faction … the Taklons… are shown. The same as described above … clicking on the faction name switches between the 2 available factions on this planet.
In the upper right you will always thee the faction info.
– Star rating gives a brief overview about the strength of a faction
– then you can scroll through the information about the ability and the planetary institute of the shown faction. The icons with the star symbol reflect the starting ability. The Icons with the background of the layout of the planetary institute show what the faction can do after building the planetary institute.

The second row is for adjusting the master volume and toggle sound and music on/off (C).
Line three (D) offers three game speed modes. The “PC” button is a future possibility to turn the UI to the mobile mode. As stated falsely this game is NOT a MOBILE PORT. So as soon as the mobile version is availabe you can also choose to use that UI.
The HD Button allows you to toggle perfomance eating animations and view modes off. This is only relevant for the mobile version. (we might deactivate this button for the PC version).
The last line (E) allows you to change the resolution during the game. Fulscreen speaks for itself.
