This game is based on the well-known Battle Royale genre, where 100 people are thrown into a map together to fight until death. You're flown on a plane into the map, where you can press SPACE or the E key to jump off the plane. Once you land on the map, you're going to need to destroy crates by using force or pressing E, open gold chests/ammo crates to try to find some weapons and ammo to defend yourself from other players who will be doing the same. You can hide in bushes and drink potions to regain health and fill your shield bar. Soon, the storm will start closing into a certain point on the map every once in a while. A circle will appear on the map in the top right-hand corner of your screen along with a line directing you to it. Going into the storm will damage you, so try to avoid getting stuck inside of it. The last person or team standing is victorious, will you be the next one?

Cosmetics are found in game that can be in the form of emotes, sprays, outfits, parachutes, melee weapons, and as of 7/19/18, backpacks. To be able to equip and change these, go to the main page of the game and click the button in the top left-hand corner that says "Cosmetics". The change of cosmetics will only be available when you log into Google or Facebook to save your progress.
When you first enter Zombsroyale.io, the starting cosmetics are no sprays, default beige outfit, default parachute, normal hands, no backpack, happy emoji, GG, thumbs down, laughing emoji, and thumbs up.
To change any cosmetic, press the space you want to change on the left hand side of the screen, then press the cosmetic on the right hand side of the screen to replace it with. Note that a few of these cosmetics are only available by increasing your level, or by increasing your tier level in the Season Rewards by getting xp from playing the game and daily challenges. Soon you'll also be able to buy cosmetics at the shop with Z-coins. You can get Z-coins by completing daily challenges.

Coins, Gems, Chests, Daily Challenges, And The Shop
The shop is a tab where you can spend gems to purchase items. To get gems, you'll need to either buy them from the shop(with real money) or get them from leveling up in the Free Pass or the Battle Pass(need to be logged in to access shop). Chests are items you get by leveling up or purchasing them in the store. Daily Challenges(and Weekly Challenges) are accessible by logging in. The Weekly Pass, however, is only accessible by getting the Battle Pass. So far, unfortunately, you can't really do anything with coins(at least on the computer edition).
More games that may help
