You first start a game by tapping "New". Then, if you want the game to
automatically advance to the next month, you tap the little button to the right
of "New". The icon will change for a small square, representing "Stop". The next
button to this one is to move one month forward manually.

To build something, tap once on a tile on the map. It will show you what is
already on this tile. If you tap again on the same tile, whatever is on it will
be replaced by what is selected in your "Construction Menu", proven you have
enough fund.
