Up-to-the-Minute Updates
(only offered in English)

Premium Items are unlocked when you make an in-app purchase of any currency pack (Coins, Food, or Diamonds). As of Version 1.3.0, the only Premium Item is the Maximum Mine on Plant Island – this structure upgrade is unlocked once a purchase has been made. Simply Logout from the Options menu and Log back in and the Maximum Mine will be available for purchase in the Market. You can alternatively upgrade your Plant Island Mini-Mine directly.

Yes! All you need to do is tap a monster, and then tap the ‘Info’ button. The ‘Sell’ button is available below the monster’s text box. This change was made in reaction to a large number of users accidentally selling their monsters from the island view, and also to make room for the Biggify feature on the monster’s main button selection.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to transfer progress between the Facebook and mobile versions of the game, even if your login method on mobile is Facebook. These versions exist on separate servers, and as such do not communicate with each other when attempting to access progress.

Make sure you are adding a Friend using the same platform as you. The mobile and Facebook versions of the game exist on separate servers, and as such do not communicate with each other when adding Friends or attempting to access progress.

Thank you, we value your feedback and your concern. Please consider that My Singing Monsters is a free-to-play application. It is entirely the user’s prerogative to spend money on in-app purchases to advance their gameplay because, by design, 100% of the game’s content is available for free.

That said, in-app purchases represent a significant percentage of our development studio’s revenue. If a player elects not to make in-app purchases, ads provide an alternative source of revenue so that we can continue to support and update this title for all of our players, paying and non-paying.

Please note that you can dismiss ads at any time by making the purchase of any currency pack. We are immensely appreciative of our players’ support, and strive to make an enjoyable gameplay experience for everyone.

Gameplay

In order to breed a new monster you must purchase a Breeding Structure from the Market Menu and have two different species of monster, both of which must be level 4 or higher. As for how to make specific combinations, that is up to you to figure out!

Breeding

Food is created using Bakeries. Bakeries can create varying amounts of food in exchange for coins; the Medium and Large Bakery upgrades allow you to create more food than the Small Bakery. You may also purchase food from the currency store in the form of in-app purchases, or you can win food as a prize in the daily Scratch Ticket or the Memory Game.

Monsters gain levels from feeding. The higher a monster’s level, the more coins they generate. Additionally, monsters can’t be accessed in the Breeding Structure menu until they are level 4.

Baking

You may have noticed in your monster’s Info screen they have different decorations or monsters listed as “likes”. This means that your monster is more happy when they are next to these things. A monster will reach its happiest state when they are surrounded by 4 different things it likes. The higher the “like” percentage, the faster the monster generates coins.

Level and Happiness meter

You can rename a monster by going to their Info menu and tapping the green box above the monster’s portrait. You will then be able to input a new name of your choosing by using your device’s keyboard.

Each monster occupies a certain number of beds, which are managed in the island’s Castle. The number of beds a specific monster occupies can be found in their Bio in the monster’s Info section. If the monster you are trying to place requires more beds than the Castle has available, you can add more beds by upgrading the castle or you can sell an existing monster to make room for the new monster.

Castle

You can verify at any time how many of particular monster you have on a given island by going to the Monsters sub-menu in the Market and checking the number that appears in the upper right corner under the Monster’s name.

Tap the Map button. The Map Menu displays the island you are currently visiting, as well as the other available islands.

Map

You can add friends by tapping the Invite Friends button in the Friends Menu, and tapping the Invite via Friend Code button. Your Friend code is located at the top of the Friends Menu, and is the same as your BBB ID. It should be noted that the “Invite via Email,” “Invite via Twitter” and “Invite via Facebook” options in the Invite Friends Menu don’t actually link accounts as friends, they serve to invite people who are not already playing the game to download it.

If you are using Facebook as your login method, your Facebook friends will automatically be displayed in the Friends Menu. If you are using Game Center as your login method, your Game Center friends will automatically be displayed in the Friends Menu. To update your Friends list, tap the Facebook and Game Center icons in the lower left corner of the Friends Menu.

Friends

The Memory Game can be selected from the Castle menu and is available to play for free once daily. To play the game, first select four monsters on your island and then tap “Play.” The monsters will play a musical sequence that you will have to repeat. These sequences will become longer and more intricate as you guess correctly. The longer you last, the better the prizes!

Memory Game

Yes! Special Edition monsters are available as prizes in the Monster Scratch Ticket available in the Nursery Menu. You can scratch one free ticket weekly, or you can get another right away by buying one with Diamonds.

Monster Scratch Ticket

Goals are not retroactive. If you fulfilled the requirements of a Goal before it appeared in the Goals list, you will need to perform the action again in order to claim the rewards. However, goals span multiple islands, so you should always have the opportunity to perform the action again.

Goals

A monster’s collection sticker appears at 75% of their maximum capacity, and remains there until and after they reach 100% capacity.
If the “Sell” button in the monster’s menu is greyed out, it is likely that that it is the only monster on your island. The game’s built-in functionality prevents players from selling the last/only monster on an island. Upgrade your island’s Castle to add more beds and place more monsters.
Once you reach higher levels, the same actions move the level status bar less and less, as it requires more and more XP to advance to the next level. There is a way you can manually check to see whether or not XP is being applied. Tap the Level bar in the upper left corner and a fraction will appear for a few seconds. The numerator is the amount of XP you currently have, and the denominator is the amount needed to unlock the next level.

XP meter

After you have reached the maximum level in the game (Level 30), you will no longer gain experience.

You can submit one (1) referral code per account, to be awarded 5 Diamonds. Go to the Options Menu and tap the Submit Referral button. You will be prompted to enter the referral code (Friend Code or BBB ID) of the user who asked to be referred by you. After you tap the Submit button, the Diamonds will be awarded and the button will disappear from the Options Menu.
Gold Island, Ethereal Island and Shugabush Island are ‘destination islands’ and they work differently than the regular Natural islands (Plant, Cold, Air, Water and Earth Islands).

Monsters of the Natural, Supernatural, Special Edition and Legendary classes can be placed on Gold Island once they have reached Level 15. The monster will remain on the Natural island from which they originated and continue to generate Coins, but their Gold Island counterpart will not generate any coins. If you sell a monster from their native island, their Gold Island counterpart will be removed as well. If you remove a monster from Gold Island, the original monster will remain on their native island. There are no structures or decorations on Gold Island.
Ethereal Monsters can be teleported to Ethereal Island once they have reached Level 15. They will be reborn in the Ethereal Island Nursery. The monster will be removed from their original island when you teleport them to Ethereal Island, and cannot return to their original island once they have been teleported.

The Shugabush monster, along with select Natural species (Potbelly, Mammott, Quibble, Oaktopus, Furcorn, Pompom and Deedge) can be teleported to Shugabush Island once they have reached Level 15. They will be reborn in the Shugabush Island Nursery. When you teleport a monster to Shugabush Island, they will be removed from both their original island and Gold Island if you have placed them there, and cannot return to their original island once they have been teleported.

Hotel and Storage Structures

If you have no available beds on your island but do not want to sell your monsters, you can check them in to the Hotel. Simply tap the ‘Check In’ button when moving a monster.

Monsters placed inside the Hotel will stop generating Coins until they are removed from the Hotel and placed on the island once more. Additionally, monsters placed inside the Hotel cannot increase the Happiness of other monsters on your island, unless you have a Unity Tree. You can upgrade your Hotel to add more beds.

You can store Decorations inside the Storage structure. Just tap the Pack button when you’re moving a decoration.

Decorations placed in Storage cannot increase the Happiness of other monster on your island, unless you have a Unity Tree. Upgrade your Storage to add more space.

Lighting Wishing Torches increases your chances of breeding rare monsters. There are 3 different ways to light a Torch:

1) You can have your Wishing Torch lit by a friend from your Friends List. Tap the Help button when you select a Wishing Torch to indicate to your Friends that you would like for them to Light your Torch. You can also visit your Friends’ islands to light their Torches for them. Islands with unlit Torches will display the Light graphic on the island button.
2) You can light a Wishing Torch for 24 hours by yourself, in exchange for 2 Diamonds.
3) You can light a Wishing Torch permanently by yourself, in exchange for 100 Diamonds.

Troubleshooting

Force quitting the My Singing Monsters app is the best way to resolve any temporary issues and clear bad data. When you open an app and then minimize it, it stays running in the background with a memory of what you just did. If your connection to the Internet is dropped, the app on your device will hold onto that bad data. Force quitting the app should rectify the situation and will not affect your account’s progress in any way.

Click here to learn how to perform a force quit on your device.

Don’t worry, it is more likely that you have simply created another account. When you opened your account, it was registered using one of four login methods  – anonymous, email, Facebook or Game Center (exclusive to iOS). When you log in using a method different than the one you used to register, it will create a new account* and will not overwrite your existing progress. This system exists to allow multiple users to play on the same device if they so choose.

You can regain access to your old account by tapping Log Out from the Options Menu, then the Change User button in the lower left corner of the screen, and selecting the login method associated with your account.

If you are still experiencing difficulty recovering your account, please scroll to the bottom of this page and complete a support request using the form. Please categorize the request as “Lost Progress” and include the BBB ID of the account that is displayed in the new account.

*The only exception is if an account using anonymous login has been bound to an email address. In this instance, the anonymous and email login buttons will access the same account.
