Collect mini-monsters called Moshlings and grow your zoo.
Take on mini-missions to gain reputation as a Super Moshi.
Explore the world and gain new friends and allies.
Adorable monsters and challenging missions come together in Moshi Monsters, an exciting and highly engaging, kid-safe virtual world that you can play off the browser. The virtual world is free to sign up for, but you also have the option of signing up for a membership and gain extra perks that will set you apart from other Moshis in the game.
You start your journey by creating your own Moshi, which you can make out of six base monsters. Choose one from the six, and choose the colors you will use to customize their appearance. Once you’re satisfied with your Moshi’s appearance, it’s time to click Finish and start exploring the virtual world.
By the way, signing up will require a unique password, username and a valid email address.
A short tutorial will show you two of the activities that you can in Moshi Monsters. One of these is to plant seeds in your Garden, which will result to your first Moshling. Right after, you are introduced to your second Moshling, who will also teach you how to accomplish your most important task in the virtual world: to create food to feed your monsters.
You can do this in the Food Factory, in which you can concoct several types of monster food like Pizza, Cupcake and Sloshcake, among others. Creating each of these foods initiates a mini-game, which you and your children will definitely find challenging and fun!
These two, of course, are just some of the many actions you can do in the virtual world. For starters, you can proceed to the Super Moshi Volcano (you can find this on the map) to take on missions as a super-hero. Your first mission will be track down an egg thief who had retreated deep into a mystical forest after stealing an egg from one of the city’s biggest traders.
The mission itself is a collection of many different mini-games. One is a puzzle that requires you to rearrange pieces on the board so that there is a clear path for you to slide the key out of the board. The second one is a Hidden Object puzzle, where you look for clues as to the thief’s identity and intent. There are also mini-missions within the mission itself, like bringing a bucket of water to an old tree for it to drink, and many others.
The game’s graphics alternates between 2D and 3D, depending on the mini-game as well as the location that you are visiting.
Of course, if you’re not out taking missions as a Super Moshi, you can explore the many different places on the Moshi Map. In these places, you can encounter other Moshis: you can chat them up, visit their homes, or send them gifts.
Speaking with NPCs or non-playable characters will trigger a monologue which has characters speaking in a foreign language. You can understand them fine, thanks to thought balloons in English.
The Moshi membership has exclusive content for those that avail of the paid service, but the free version has enough activities for its memberships that Moshi membership becomes optional when playing Moshi Monsters.
