Map and Island Skins

How do I use the Map?

The Map menu displays all of the Islands of the Monster World. It unlocks at Level 7, or after Cold Island (the second of the Natural Islands) is purchased. You can use the left sidebar to swipe up and down to see the full list of Islands, or you can swipe around the map and pinch to zoom to explore the Islands' positions.

How do I get more Islands?

Unlock conditions vary from Island to Island. Some Islands, like the Natural Islands, cost Coins to buy and require the previous Island to be bought. Other Islands are free, like Gold Island, but have special requirements to populate them. Certain others require you to have reached a certain level, like Wublin Island, or have special social mechanics, like Tribal Island.

How do I know which Islands I already own?

Islands that you already own will be marked with a unique pin on the Map. Unowned Islands that have been unlocked are indicated by an empty circle on the Map; when selected, a mirage of the Island will appear and the unlock cost or condition will be displayed. Unowned Islands that are locked will be shaded and display a lock icon in the sidebar.

What do the numbers beside the Island name mean?

The numbers that appear beside the Island name indicate how many Monsters you have collected on that Island. The numbers that appear beside 'Beds Occupied' indicate how many Beds are currently in use and available on that Island.

What do the fractions and icons on the sidebar panels indicate?

Once you own an Island, the fraction that appears below its name on the sidebar panel indicates how many Monsters you have collected on that Island. The icons that appear along the bottom of an Island's sidebar panel indicate that there are actions that have completed and need your attention on that Island. A maximum of 5 icons can appear on an Island's sidebar panel, although there may be more actions ready to complete.

What information is displayed when I select an Island?

When you select an Island (either from the Map itself or the sidebar), a focused view of that Island's pin will be presented. Below the pin, a breakdown of the Beds occupied, different Monster rarity collections and Costumes will be displayed. If you have an Island Skin activated on the selected Island, the pin's appearance is updated to reflect the activation.

How can I tell when an Island is hosting a Seasonal Event?

When an Island is hosting a Seasonal Event, the Event's sigil will be displayed on the corresponding Island's sidebar panel. When that Island is selected, the name of the Event and the time remaining on its availability will be displayed to the right of the pin.

What do the Torch icons on my Friend's Map mean?

A Torch icon that appears on an Island's sidebar on your Friend's Map indicates that they have Wishing Torches needing to be lit! Pulsing Torch icons indicate that they would prefer you to focus on lighting on that Island. An Island's Wishing Torch will also appear on your Friend's Map for any Island with unlit Torches.

What does the Mirror button do?

The Mirror button allows you to travel to the Mirror dimension, where the Mirror Islands reside. To navigate back to the main dimension, simply tap on the 'Main' button.

What do Island Skins do?

Island Skins allow you to customize the look of your Island and apply 'Boosts' that confer special benefits. There are 2 different kinds of Island Skins - permanently-available Titan Island Skins and limited-time Seasonal Island Skins. To learn more about Island Skins, visit the Info Menu of an Island and navigate to the corresponding tab.

How do I purchase an Island Skin?

Skins can be purchased for 2500 Diamonds, or for $9.99 USD in a special bundle that includes a bonus 100 Diamonds. They can be purchased from the Island’s info panel, by opening the tab at the top of the screen that is labeled “Skin”. You can open the info panel by tapping on the Info button while no Monster, Structure or Decoration is selected. To purchase the Skin on its own, tap the Buy button on the bottom of the Skin tab. To get the bundle containing the Skin and Bonus Diamonds as an in-app purchase for $9.99 USD, tap the paintbrush button in the upper right of the Skin tab.

How do I activate and deactivate my Island Skin?

Tap on the Info button located at the bottom of your Island view. If you have no Decoration, Structure or Monster selected it will open the current Island’s info panel. At the top of the displayed info panel, there will be a tab you can open to access your Skin. Tap on the tab, then tap on “Activate” at the bottom of the screen to enable your purchased Skin. While an Island Skin is in use the button will change to show “Deactivate” instead. Tapping on this will revert the Island to its original appearance. 

What are the boosts provided by the Skins?

All Skins provide you with three boosts:

  • 15% Increased Coin generation per minute
  • 10% decreased incubation duration in the Nursery
  • Doubled Wishing Torch breeding chances

Do I keep the boosts if I deactivate the Skin?

Yes, the buffs provided by purchasing an Island Skin are permanently enabled on the Island you have purchased it for, even when they are disabled.

How come my Obstacles are still the same?

Island Skins will not change the appearance of Obstacles or Obstacle Decorations. The only way to get decorated Obstacles is to purchase them during their normal Seasonal availability.

How do I purchase permanent seasonal obstacles during an event?

During seasonal events like Easter or Halloween you can purchase permanently decorated Obstacles! You can do this by opening up the Marketplace, clicking on the decorations tab, and scrolling until you see the decorated obstacles. Once placed these Obstacles stay decorated all year round!
