Once you select a day, you will be taken to the next screen of the game which is as shown in the below screenshot. This basically details the storyline of the game, and is in the form of a comic strip. There is a different comic strip for different days. You can swipe to reveal the next frame of the comic, or you can click and drag your mouse to perform the same action.

FreudBot Storyline

When you have skipped through the comic strip, you will be taken to the gameplay screen itself where you will be able to battle against your opponents who are none other than the people that you would have to deal with in your daily life. The first level is your battle against your boss. The gameplay screen shows the various meters at the left side of the screen, and the available cards that you can use to counter your opponent’s attacks at the bottom of the screen. You can see so in the below screenshot.
