There aren’t many elements in the game other than playing videos, pausing them when you feel the need to quickly redirect, and typing keywords into the search bar.
However, there is one mechanic that deserves attention for all the wrong reasons: the rewind function.
Whenever you download a video from a keyword query, the video will automatically play where the keyword is mentioned.
Most of the time this is at least half of the video. You can rewind from there to see everything, but scrolling is a bit faster than normal playback.
