Exploration is the process of preparing land for future development. After advancing a level, more pieces of land (regions) become available for exploration, marked by a lesser cloud cover. When this happens, the player can choose to explore the land.

There is a charge to explore the land, measured in coins. Each exploration will cost more coins than the previous one as the game goes on. It also takes time to explore a piece of land, and each exploration takes longer as the game goes on. An exploration can be finished sooner by spending some gems.

After an exploration is complete, the land may be immediately be available for development. But in most cases, there are battles to be won and debris to be cleared before this occurs.

Sometimes, exploring a region is a quest that must be fulfilled.
