In each different location there will be a list of items for you to find inside of a beautifully presented picture.

Once you complete the scene you see a list of rewards and also receive a few coins, some experience for your overall game and also for that particular scene. All of these things are useful to you in different parts of the game.
The experience you receive is used in two ways. The first is dedicated to the scene that you have played. Each one has a rank attached to it, the more you play it the higher your rank, and that means you can find more powerful items and keys for other parts of the game. You also have an overall level, which determines the scenes that you can play, as some require you to be a higher level before you can unlock them.
Each time you play a scene it will cost you some of your energy and the higher your level the more energy you spend.

Many of the items are used in collections. Once a one of these is complete you can piece it together for a powerful reward. There is a collections button at the bottom of the screen and it will let you know when you have one ready to make. As well as the items you find there are also keystone objects that you have to have to make the collection. You have the option to buy these as well as hunt for them in the different scenes.
