Monster Island is a physics-based puzzle game that is very similar to and made by the same folks that created Fragger. It involves killing monsters with objects that are launched by you, including rocks and different types of bombs. It can really only be enjoyed being played without a guide, as puzzle games always are. The fun of the game is struggling through levels and conquering them. That said, if you are looking for a fast 200 gamerscore, using a guide will net you all the achievements in about 4 hours. The game is slightly more difficult on a desktop PC with mouse controls, as a few of the levels require coordination and timing that is best-suited for a screen with multi-touch capabilities (a tablet). Currently the game is listed at $3.99 in the Windows 8 Store.

Step 1: Complete the game
Play through all the levels starting from the beginning. Try as get as many stars as you can. If you want your gamerscore quick, skip to Step 2.

Step 2: Obtain 3 stars all levels
Use the video guides outlined below to obtain the rest of the stars.

Step 3: Mop-up miscellaneous achievements
Complete any miscellaneous achievements you may have missed while getting the required amount of stars. There should only be a few left.

All in all, Monster Island is a fun little puzzle game that will give you 200 fairly easy gamerscore if using a guide, and a small amount of challenge and fun if you're not.

Monster Island Achievement Guide

There are 18 achievements with a total of 200 points

  • Complete a level with 3 stars

    See "Break the ice."

  • Hit a monster in the head

    Just as the description states...nail a monster in the head with a stone or grenade. This cannot be done with a sticky object or bomb that explodes on impact. This will come by playing, if not by accident, since this is how you enrage enemies.

  • Kill two monsters with one shot

    Just kill two monsters with a single shot. They both must explode from the blast of a single grenade. You cannot them off a ledge to their death. This is basically unmissable, as many of the levels require killing two or even three monsters at a time to get 3 stars. An easy spot (and possibly the first) to get this achievement is on Mellow Yellow Level 28. See the video below.

  • Kill an enraged monster

    See "Master Chiller."

  • Spare



    Complete a level with the last shot

    This is straight forward. Can be done on the first level, just waste all you grenades until the last one. Use it to kill the only monster on-screen.

  • Kill 50 monsters

    See "Monster Nightmare."

  • Kill 100 monsters

    See "Monster Nightmare."

  • Kill 300 monsters

    These achievements only require you to kill monsters. The kills count across all level plays and re-tries. You will definitely get 300 kills before 3-starring all levels, as there are 252 total levels, many of which have 2 or 3 monsters to kill.

  • Kill 40 enraged monsters

    To enrage a monster, you must nail it square in the head with an object. The monster will then get an angry look on its face. You then know it is enraged. You may get this while completing the game, but if you don't, it is no big deal. This can easily be boosted in about 5 minutes by playing Yellow Jello Level 4 over and over. Enrage the first enemy and kill him with the same grenade. Then blow up the stone wall. Then enrage the second enemy and kill him. 2 enraged kills in about 10 seconds. Keep reloading until it unlocks.

  • Complete Yellow Jello with all stars

    See "Break the ice."

  • Complete Purple Jam with all stars

    See "Break the ice."

  • Complete Monstrocity with all stars

    See "Break the ice."

  • Complete Frozen Mellow with all stars

    These achievements just require you to complete all levels with three stars. You get an achievement for completing a single level with 3 stars, and each of the 4 worlds with 189 stars (63 levels per world x 3 stars per level). The levels are quite easy and can quickly be completed without a guide. World 4 (Frozen Mellow) has some trickier puzzles that using a guide would definitely save time on, but overall the levels are much, much easier than Fragger if you played that. They require much less precision and timing.

    To get three stars you basically just have to get a certain score. This mostly just boils down to completing the level using the minimum number of objects (stones/bombs). However, because some of the objects have different points awarded for not using them, it is sometimes required that you use specific types of objects.

    THIS SITE has some good walkthroughs for each level. However, simply typing in the World name and level number into YouTube is just as good. There are numerous walkthrough videos for each level. To me, at least the first two worlds, it is definitely faster to just play without guides. They can actually slow you down as most levels only require mild thought and can be completed in one attempt.

  • See a level solution

    At the start of the game, you have access to three solutions already. Within any level, just pause and push "View Solution." It will show you a video of someone 3-starring that level.

  • Earn 750 coins and spend them on a new character in the Monster Island store!

    See "Big Spender."

  • Skip a level

    In order to skip a level, just pause the game and select the skip icon to unlock this achievement and instantly move the next level. You start with two skips when you install the game.

  • Earn 1500 coins and spend them on solutions in the Monster Island store!

    See "Big Spender."

  • Earn a total of 2500 coins and spend them in the Monster Island store!

    You earn coins in the game by completing levels, albeit a very small amount per level. You earn 10-20 coins per level and will definitely earn 2500 total coins when 3-starring all levels. It is recommend that you first purchase a new monster to unlock the "Curiosity Killed Monsters" achievement, then buy a pack of 3 solutions to unlock the "Keep em' coming" achievement. Buying these two items first will ensure you unlock the store-related achievements with minimal effort. Right when you begin the game, you are given a free 750 coins. Use it to buy a monster to get the "Curiosity Killed the Monster" achievement out of the way.

    You can find the Monster Island store at the main menu of the game.
