All you need is an iOS or Android device and download the game on the App Store or Google Play. You can also play the game using a computer run on Windows, Mac or Linux.
The gems are the Evolution Planet currency. You can use them to summon powers and creatures. You can collect gems on all game levels, in the Survival mode and as a reward for the Daily Spin.

Evolution Planet is constantly being updated, which means that new levels full of exciting challenges are going to be launched frequently.
At the beginning of each level you will be shown a summary of the objectives you must fulfill. To see more details, tap on the objectives in the upper part of the screen. You will find advice on how to achieve each objective as well as a summary of the creatures that may appear in the level.
The best way to get more points is to fulfill the objectives as quickly as possible so that many creatures are left over. However, on some levels you can reach a higher score in a different way, such as by reaching a higher level of evolution or by getting many fruits.
In the "Bonus Round", the creatures you had left over after completing the level will evolve ideally and without the limitations imposed by the game board. Besides, the more evolutions you accumulate, the higher the score of the bonus you get will be. To sum up, the more creatures you have left over when finishing a level, the more points you will get.
