Play involves making choices about gathering resources, waiting for them to be collected and then spending them on different items. This expands incrementally so you are able to access new resources, equipment and interactions. It starts off very simple, but steadily expands to offer wide-ranging role-play choices. You are soon fighting enemies, hunting monsters, fishing, trading, assaulting castles and travelling all over the world.
As you progress you learn to manage your character's health and energy. You need to keep food and water levels topped up and take a rest to regain stamina. As you set out wider afield you can travel by foot, horse, boat or even dragon. This enables you to visit towns and cities where you can search for clues and missions. From here you can craft better armour, learn and perform magic and even join clans.
Like in Zelda Breath of the Wild, you need the right clothes for each different environment. To travel to the desert wear something cooling to protect you from the heat. Or if you need to travel to the frozen tundra, wear something to keep you warm.

Along with the generally approachable game-play, Swordy Quest has provided excellent accessibility for blind and visually impaired players. As outlined by Aaron Spelker "the map is well labelled and offers an auto travel mechanic which makes it easier for blind and V.I. gamers. I also suggest turning on the Vertical Navigation on the Rotary Wheel to make it more efficient to travel in the four primary directions around the map."
Although the game is low pressure and reaction time not generally critical, you do need timed reactions for hunting, fishing, and fighting.
