In the very beginning; you will initiate a tutorial that allows you to jump a few levels and add some cash into your account.  This tutorial takes you through the concept of the game.  You can access missions by clicking on the “Task” button located at the top.  Once you accept a mission; the “Next Task” clock will start and you won't be able to access a new one until the time is up.  The initial mission will send you on a trip and you can access the location by clicking on the map icon shaped like a balloon. 

This is where you'll be sent to all the locations within the vicinity.  Sometimes the mission requires a plane ride across the world.  Luckily; the trip only takes a few minutes and you'll be able to start your crime.  During the tutorial; the game will highlight the items to click on to access your missions making it very easy to learn how to play. 

Every mission requires something different.  You may have to hot wire and steal a vehicle to continue through the game or even fight a major mob boss.  Regardless; it is very possible to fail, but the game will allow you to try again without any penalty.  Eventually, with every mission that is completed; you will see your inventory of stolen cars and weaponry increase.  This also includes the cash in your account that can be used to purchase more items and weapons to win battles.
