THE GOAL - EARN POINTS

After a few intro screens, you'll land on your dashboard screen.

Your goal is to earn gold (points) by either:

1. Submitting sightings of wildlife you find, or

2. identifying the sightings of other players.

 
 

SUBMIT A SIGHTING

First, find an interesting bird, insect, reptile, plant, fungi - any living thing that's in the wild.

To submit a sighting of it, you can either take a new photo with your device, or you can load an existing photo from your device's gallery.

You can earn bonus points by correctly identifying your sighting and by adding field notes.

EXTRA FUN STUFF (NOT PART OF COMPETITION EVENTS)

So that's all you need to know to start earning points (gold), increasing your species collection, and moving up the leaderboard.

As you get more familiar with the game, you'll discover some extra fun stuff. You can go to Menu > Challenge and challenge other players to head-to-head bioquests.  You can go to Menu > Shop and buy some better equipment (for faster, more detailed, verifications of your sightings).

Or you can buy some supplies, which allow you to join and create quests (Menu > Quests). Joining quests give you bonus gold. Creating quests gets other players to start collecting new species for you. 

You can even join a clan. Go to Menu > Clan, choose a clan and click ‘Request an invite’, or ‘Join clan’ if you've already received an invite. Once you're part of a clan, you can communicate with your fellow clan members and work together to increase your score.
