As Dr. Seuss once wrote: “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!”


# Navigation

– Navigation is pretty straightforward: drag the map to navigate, hover and click on an item or use the arrows for a chronological overview.
On the map, double-click to zoom, or use the controls at your right.
Using a mouse, the scroll wheel allows to zoom in or out at will.

– When exploring an Adventure on a computer, use the controls on the bottom: the grey button to switch between satellite and map view, zoom in and zoom out.
On tablets the text of the Adventure and its aerial view are independent. Scroll the text block down and up to read it entirely, and pinch the aerial view to zoom.

– Navigate by subjects with the main menu or the tag at the end of each Adventure.

Clicking either on the “Home” text at the beginning of an Adventure or on the big LibrAdventures logo will have the same effect.

Discover new stories and brave dangers at random every time you click on Explore!, either at the end of an Adventure or on the left menu.
