    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Mail - other players in the game can send you messages, 
    but the mail tool is also used to provide useful information.
    If you successfully attack a town, for instance, details will 
    be sent to your mailbox.
    
    Cities - here you can manage your cities. Though you’ll start 
    out with just one, eventually you’ll have the option to expand to 
    new areas.
    
    Menu - These are where you can either logout from the game or 
    change yourpassword. It doesn’t appear as though you can change 
    your username, so make sure you pick something you want to stick with.
    
    Store - this is where you buy precious gems, the premium currency 
    in the game, which is used primarily for speeding up the construction
    of buildings. 
    They are available in bundles that cost anywhere from $1 to $100.
    
    Quests - at any given time you’ll have three quests to complete. 
    Completing them earns you bonuses of resources and money. 
    To get further information on a quest, tap check. 
    Once you complete a quest you’ll need to return in order to collect
    your reward, at which point you’ll receive a brand new quest.
    
    Rank - this section shows you how you and your league compare to other 
    players. You can view the top players in the world, as well as the top 
    eagues, and your own specific rank.
    
    Map - here you can check out neighboring towns, both player and Comp 
    controlled.Tapping a town will reveal its status, as the options you 
    have for interacting with it, which include either attacking or spying. 
    You’ll also see the town’s experience level.
    
    Chat - this is a live chat room. It’s divided into sections, 
    one in which anyone in the world can post, and another which is
    specific to your league,
    if you have joined one. It appears as though the chat rooms are 
    immoderate,so it’s likely that you’ll come across some offensive
    language if you spend a lot of time in there.

    Question and answer 					  	      7
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. What are Gems?
    Gems can speed up upgrade period and soldier. you can also used gem
    to protect you city.
    
    2. Where can i buy a gems?
    you can purchase from the game or there is a rare change to get 
    a gem from atk barbarian.
    
    3. How can I type emoticons in World Chat?
    It’s quite simple, here’s how it works: you first must download 
    the “emoji” app from the App Store. There are paid and free versions 
    but the free version will work fine and achieve the same effect so 
    we recommend grabbing that. Once it’s installed you’ll have to reboot 
    your device, and then you’ll be able to switch languages whenever 
    you input text on your device (by tapping the globe icon) and switch 
    to emoji. From there, simply tap on the emoji that you want to input 
    and it’ll appear.
