Navigation in Jetpack Compose refers to the interactions that lets you move across composables in your app. And this is possible using the Navigation components API which is bundled with cool features to make handling navigation easier.

implementation('androidx.navigation:navigation-compose:2.5.3')
@Composable
fun MainScreen() {

}
Surface(modifier = Modifier.fillMaxSize(), color = MaterialTheme.colorScheme.background) {
  MainScreen() // Update Code
}
val navController = rememberNavController()
NavHost(navController = navController, startDestination = "gamescreen") {
  composable("gamescreen") { GameScreen() }
  composable("about") { AboutScreen() }
}
@Composable
fun GameDetail(
  //...
  onNavigateToAbout: () -> Unit // New Code
) {
onClick = { onNavigateToAbout() },
GameDetail(onStartOver = {}, onNavigateToAbout = {})
GameDetail(
  //...
  onNavigateToAbout = onNavigateToAbout,
  //...
)
fun GameScreen(
  onNavigateToAbout: () -> Unit
) {
  //...
}
GameScreen(onNavigateToAbout = {})
composable("gamescreen") {
  GameScreen(
    onNavigateToAbout = { navController.navigate("about") } // New Code
  )
}
