Settings[edit]

Settings Button 2.png This sub-menu allows the player to control the settings of the game.

The game might occasionally send notifications of other kinds that can not be found under this menu, such as new bundles or events. Disabling these can only be done from within the player's respective device's app settings.

Sound Settings[edit]
