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 animals, plants and fungi you find in the wild, 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 wild (not domesticated).
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.
Everyone has a daily sighting submission limit. However you can raise your limit by either identifying sightings, or becoming a QuestaGame member.
IDENTIFY THE SIGHTINGS OF OTHER PLAYERS
To identify sightings, you can go to "QuestaLab" (bottom right).
If you prefer to identify sightings on your computer, go to http://bee.questagame.com
Compete against other players for prizes in the global monthy BioQuests. Be sure to register in each BioQuest for your chance to win. Will you score the best find, the best photo, or maybe you'll get lucky in the Active Adventurer prize draw!
Don't miss the big one. The 2018 World BioQuest will take place from 18-22 May.
And keep your eye on local BioQuests, to see if there is a free competition in your part of the world.
OTHER FUN STUFF
That's all you need to know to start having fun, earning gold, increasing your species collection and move up the leaderboard. Start your adventure today!
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 challenges. 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.
