Currency – Coins, rubies. You earn coins by collecting relic pieces and trading them for coins.
Shovels – required for “Dig Sites” to tap stones (1 shovel for each tap) to find required pieces, especially keys to unlock new map areas. To fill the bar you need to complete searches in the various landmarks. British Isles Inn etc. In doing that you will gain score for the searches and the faster the search the higher the score points. Once you fill the shovel bar you get 3 shovels.
Energy – refills by 1 energy every minute and is required to enter landmarks. You can refill your energy level using rubies to buy candy bar, coffee, super fruit, but it is not cheap.
Rubies – can also be rewarded by collecting certain relic pieces (from various landmarks), and from random stones in the Dig Site. I have managed to get 30 a few times there.
Flashlight – If you use that option it will highlight area of an object.
Magnifying Glass – By using it on your screen it will light up a colour between red to green. Red being the farther you are from an object, green being closer.
Camera – shows an image of any object you need to find
You can win the flashlight, magnifying glass, camera and shovels in the dig site.
How to Play
You start off with some energy (100). With that you enter the first landmark. British Isles Inn. Each landmark as its own timer to unlock. Once it has unlocked you have to pay 24 of your energy to unlock. Once you enter you have a set time to collect various pieces that are showed on the bottom in the image. Those who play TPH will be familiar with this. There will be one that is the relic piece. In the case of this landmark it is the red book. Each landmark has various relic pieces that you will need to trade for coins. There are many relic pieces but for now you only unlock one relic for each landmark as it costs higher amount of coins to unlock others and this early in the game you do not need to unlock anymore until later on in the levels when you have more coins and required in trades.
Once you have collected all the pieces, you will see the bar under the shovels move, when that bar is full you will get 3 shovels. You will be able to trade your relic for coins.
Basically you got to keep searching for relics, trading to collect more coins, as as you do you will have enough to unlock more landmarks and collect more shovels. As you unlock more landmarks you will have enough to go to dig site to tap the stones to find keys to unlock the door to the portal for the next land mark.
Carry this through for each map piece. You need keys from dig site to unlock more maps so make sure you keep searching for more shovels. So be patient to allow for that energy to build up. Does not take that long.
To level up requires certain number of relic pieces. To find out how many you have left to do tap the top left corner where it shows your level.
On the left side you will see a broken bridge, that takes 180 rubies to fix. Once you do fix it a map called Valhalla will unlock. The first landmark is a dig site. You need to find all the pieces shown on the bottom before you can progress to anymore landmarks on this map. (Not like the other maps). So you need plenty of shovels for this one.
