Moshi Monsters Egg Hunt App Game


The kids have loved playing the online game Moshi Monsters, but because I'm always on the PC and they are mainly on the tablet (or my phone), they don't play it as often as before anymore. There is a brilliant news though! Moshi Monsters is now available as an app game, called Moshi Monsters Egg Hunt!

It's not as big as the original Moshi Monsters game where you can play with other players, but the app game is just as fun, and you still get to play some of the mini games you played in Moshi Monsters!

As soon as the kids heard that the game is out, the first thing they did was to watch the Moshi Monsters Movie again, as it's all about collecting Moshling eggs haha. And then we found that the theme tune for the app game is in the movie too! Now they have to hatch their eggs (we installed it on our tablet and my phone. Big mistake!) every day!

Moshi Monsters Egg Hunt (available on iOS and Android) is free to download and free to play. Players can adopt their own pet Moshling and name them, and hatch other Moshlings every day. They also get to play games to earn Rox to buy food to feed their Moshlings and accessories to decorate their house.

If players want to collect Moshlings faster, they can also buy Moshi Monsters Egg Hunt Trading Cards, which will come with a unique one use only QR code for them to scan the Moshlings (as well as accessories and Rox!) on the card into their game.


Daily Egg Hatching and Trading Cards:

We love how you have to tap the screen to hatch the egg! Once hatched, your Moshling will be added to your collection (Zoo), and you can find it in your Tree house.

Moshling eggs are offered to players daily, or you can also buy trading cards (350 cards to collect in series 1) and scan the QR code for an instant egg!

We were sent 2 packets of trading cards for our game review, where each packet contains 8 cards, including an ultra rare one! Some of the cards are puzzle pieces, others, including Moshlings, Rox and home decor, are for you to scan into the game.

Each QR code can only be used once though, so before you scratch the card, do think about whether you really want to scratch it, as you'll be able to use the unscratched one for trading!

You can access the website where you can buy the trading cards through the shop in the game. There will be a warning pop up screen for the players to ask parents for help.

Each packet of trading cards cost £1.99, but you can get a discount if you buy them in a bundle. There is a My Moshling Cards pack (£2.99) as well that comes with 5 cards, which I think will feature your ultra rare pet Moshling (using the code found in their description to create) on the card. Judging from the description, it is for trading purpose, so I assume once you have your friend's pet Moshling trading card, you can scan it into your game, making it super rare.


Treehouse:

Once your Moshlings are hatched, they will appear in your pet Moshling's treehouse (Clay's pet Moshling is called Tree haha). Only up to 4 Moshling can be added to the treehouse however, where the rest will be kept in the 'room' below.

Players can clean the treehouse of bubbles and rainbow poops for Rox, feed the Moshlings that are inside (you can easily swap the ones from the 'room' to the treehouse), and decorate it as well. Each Moshling does really cute/ funny things, like the Snowman one will sneeze his head off, and the coin will make tingling sound!


Shopping:

Playerds can visit the shops to  buy food for Moshlings and decor for the treehouse. This is also where they can access the website for buying the trading cards.


Games:

To earn Rox, players can either do the treehouse cleaning, get Rox trading cards, or play games to earn lots of them! There are currently 4 games to play:

Moshi Match (match 2 of the same Moshlings)
Thump a Glump (Whack a Mole)
Ice Scream Parlour (sell the correct ice-creams to customers)
Puzzle Palace (answer quizzes and puzzles)

Each are really cute and provide lots of fun for the kids! You can keep playing until you have enough Rox to buy things!


Overall, we all love the cute Moshi Monsters Egg Hunt app game, and the kids have been asking me if they can hatch their egg before school every day! The game has cute graphics and sound, and there are quite a good amount of things to play already. I'm sure there will be plenty of updates to come to add more items and Moshlings into the game, with more series of trading cards releasing as well.

The game however is basically free to play and you don't really need to buy the trading cards at all to have fun, but I like it that they have it to offer those who wants it. The trading cards also allows you to get another game/ collection out from it.

One thing to note is that the game, like many other great games, does drain your battery (experience based on my Samsung Galaxy S7). It's not a big problem as there are power banks and fast charge cables nowadays, but I would use it as an excuse not to let them take over my phone hehe.


If you and/ or your child(ren) love Moshi Monsters, we recommend checking the game app out.
