For really new players plz read before playing

Ok i have been noticing a lot of new player that have been playing this beta. Now i understand you are new so i am going give you a quick starter guide using youtube and teach u basic motion on game.

To eat select food item like onion or berry on bush the swipe towards yourself till you are highlighted. Now carrot / burdock you need a sharp stone to harvest to eat. To make a sharp stone find a round stone (it litterly looks like a round stone) then find a big boulder. Highlight the big boulder with round stone in hand. Wala there a sharp stone. To drop item swipe to the ground if holding an item the square will light up indicating that the item you have in hand will be put there. Ok basket little tricky to pick up but it managable if you practice enough. With the basket click and hold till you see basket light up then swipe towards you.

Hmmm next…

Basket making i guess
There are reeds in the swamp area you can use or the bunny area in which you will find wheat.

For the reeds use sharp stone (as mentioned above) highlight the reeds to cut you will need two bundles then put down sharp stone in an open space where you can see. Pick up the reeds to move them both then stack them and you will have a basket. For the wheat from the bunny area like the reeds you cut two move them new location . Find a straight branch or a curved branch thresh the wheat on both bundles and put doen branch. Next grab the bundles move to a new location/ tile then stack them.

Farming is next i guess… I do perfer people to watch and learn because it faster then spelling everything out which takes time to explain.

I am going put a few links in here from youtube for you to watch which give you time to review and go back to if needed.

Remember that these youtube videos are mostly the same as one hour one life on phone except that they play on computer while we are playing on phones.I will also leave a crafting website to help others. TheRedbug gave me this website which i am grateful for. 3

Hope this will help new people out. By the way i am curious why would new people who don’t know the game want to be a beta teater? Don’t get me wrong i am just curious. If you like leave me your reply why you decided you wanted to join beta old players and new.


For me is lifestyle. Have night shift whee nothing happens but not at a computer so this works perfect for me!


For me i was watching twisted channel and he started doing one hour one life videos i also watch tons of other one hour one life videos wishing i could play and guess what… My dream came true. Now i can put all i learned from hours of watching other people play and having having into my gameplay. I remember when i kept checking every day for weeks for this game to come out on android and when it did i litterly ran to put money in my gaming card to buy but then i found out that i could be a beta tester and help with this game. I was so stoked when they allowed me to beta test that i ran around the house shouting “Lovie!!! I am a beta tester for one hour one life on android.” "I never seen you this excited in a long time"he said.

Again thank you for brining one hour one life to android even if it is beta atm.:sparkling_heart::heart_eyes::blush::+1:

Dayum. That theredbug guy seems like a nice person. I’d be glad to meet him one day



Really? Let me tell you something about TheRedBug… We were best friends in middle school… I know right, it’s soooo embarrassing. I don’t even…whatever. So then in eighth grade I started making stew first… it was totally delicious until we ran out of rabbits --and Bug was like, weirdly jealous of my stew… Like if I wouldnt eat his stew so I could eat mine and he’d be like “What don’t you like my stew?!” and I’d be like, “Uh, why are you so obsessed with me?” So then for my birthday party, which was an all stew pool party, I was like, “Bug… I can’t invite you because I think you’re way too into stew” I mean, I couldn’t have a stew crazed fiend at my party! There were going to be a huge selection of different stews! I mean right, he was obsessed!! So then his mom called my mom and started yelling at her and it was so retarded and then he dropped out of school 'cause no one would talk to him and then he came back in the fall for high school and his hair was all cut off and he was totally weird and now I guess hes on crack


10/10 best fan fic i ever got about me
Thank you babe




Hi all - just for those people I run into who can’t farm (or don’t know how to eat) check out the videos at the top of the page. There is also a written how to start guide written up on another thread I bumped

below is also the control system for OHOL Mobile so you won’t starve again


can’t find a help section so i’ll ask here … :sweat_smile: watched the vids and it looks like they just use the water pouch on the pond? when i tried doing that in the game it didn’t work for some reason… did something change? or did i do it wrong?

Be sure there is no egg in the pond :wink:



I’m replying to bump this because it’s a great community service. Too many times on an Eve run I’m birthing noobs (nothing wrong with being a noob cuz we all were at one time) who say they want to learn and then run around like headless chickens after I’ve patiently explained they need to stay still so as not to waste their, and my, food energy.


I vote to have this thread pinned to the top.

Great thread here! Thank you for the starter guide, this should help a lot of noobs.

A comment about Eves: If you’re settling in an area that has lots of wild food, try to find a nice intersection between a cold biome (meadow, prarie, swamp) and the warm biome (desert) to maximize the food intake of you and your babes. This means more people can survive on less food by banking their temperature (stand in a place where your temperature is green) before running around.

Always build a kiln and fire first. I know lots of new players who waste so much time gathering dirt, this is useless if you don’t have a way to water them (and rabbits can be used to make pouches, but you still need to make a fire so you may as well make bowls too).

Watch other gamers play! I like to see lots of Lets Play youtube folx making videos. I personally watch Cothfotmeoo and HoneyBunnyGames but there are a few out there. You can learn how to do the latest updates and see some serious OHOL drama while you’re at it.

Love all versions of this game, and can’t wait till the mobile version gets stacking items, dogs, and donkeys!

Thanks for the info! :us:

I agree if they dont listen and tend to starve me i let them die. I need babys yhat will listen not ones that make our jobs harder. It hard enough that as an eve you must find the right place and set up camp fast. It even harder when a baby doesnt follow when you need them to or stay when you trying keep them warm and less hungry.
