There’s nothing new here it’s the same standard fare from other Facebook games. You’ll need equipment for some lessons such as a wand, hat, and robe which can be bought in the game store from the cash you make doing missions. Lessons require energy which will replenish over time, if you level during a mission your energy will automatically refill for you. Lessons are all done in a text format so there’s nothing exciting about them. As you finish levels you’ll get more lessons to do and unlock other areas of the game.
