The mobile version of the game has a number of different control options, all unique to mobile. These include tap to move using the device touchscreen and an on-screen joystick.

Control styles can be selected by opening the menu and choosing the Options tab Optionstab.png

Inside the options menu is a dropdown which allows selection of each of the following control schemes.

Tap-to-move & Auto-Attack

This is the default control setting.

  • Tap-to-move - Tap anywhere on screen and the farmer will walk to where you tapped. Tap on items to action them. Tapping on stones, wood, stumps, boulders, rocks etc will auto-select the correct tool for the job.
  • Auto-attack - when in The Mines if a weapon is selected (e.g. sword, dagger, club) then it will automatically face and attack any enemies that come within range. You can tap elsewhere to walk away, however you cannot move while the weapon is in mid-swing.

Tap-to-move & Attack Joystick

The attack joystick enabled.

When a weapon is selected a joystick appears bottom right. Drag the joystick up/down/left/right to face that direction and swing the weapon.
