Strategy, Tips and Tricks: Monsters Ate My Condo!

As you may know already, I love Monsters Ate My Condo, and I am still trying to work my way up in the leaderboards. As a certified M.A.M.C. addict, I’d like to share with you some of my strategy, tips and tricks. (Note: check out the review of the newly released Super Monsters Ate My Condo here)

Before anything else, Make sure you’re online and logged into your GameCenter/OpenFeint account. I’ve had strange experiences with my scores. Once, when I hit my all-time personal high of 760+ B — for some strange reason, I got a negative score! Another time, my score wasn’t recorded at all. Wait til you see the GameCenter notification that you’re live your score doesn’t go to waste!

1) Form shiny condo chains by planning ahead. Remember that shiny condos and combos come in three’s: 3 of a kind = bronze X 3 = silver X 3 = gold X 3 = diamond X 3 = MegaZone.

2) Remember that once you’re in the MegaZone, the monsters’ special powers don’t work.

3) Want to score tons of points? Use Lord Ferocious (yellow) just before going into the MegaZone!

4) Upgrade your condos faster by making “cats” – you can do this by stacking on top of each other any of the following “bad condos” – 3 concretes, 3 bombs, 2 bombs + 1 concrete. There are other special combos that create cats, but I don’t remember these other combos since I was only to make them once or twice.

5) Since the red crab calms the other monsters down, eliminate condos that you don’t need by activating the red crab and carefully feed the sleeping monsters the condos you want them to eat.

6) The red crab resets bombs. To score cats, buy some time by feeding the red crab a shiny combo and wait for other bombs/bad condos to fall down.

7) Need cats to upgrade your shiny condos? Put the red crab to good use! If you’re being blitzed by bad condos, put them together to create a cat. Feed the red crab with any shiny condo and then eliminate all other condos in between except for at least 3 bad condos.

8) To create even more cats out of bad condos, feed the green guy with a shiny condo to double the combos formed.

9) Try to put 2 cats at the bottom of your tower so that eventually they will upgrade all the condos and lead you to the MegaZone.

10) Try to keep at least 2 cats in your tower at all times.

11) If your monster onscreen will soon swap out, feed him the condos you want to eliminate that are of a different color.

12) Reginald Starfire (blue) straightens towers when his power is activated. If you have a bomb that’s about to go off, feed him a condo immediately after the explosion to prevent the tower from being unstable.

13) Keep your tower at a low height, even if it means giving away some shiny condos.

    • I just got it. Practice. Keep the green guy and just keep feeding him greens. Keep throwing him Bronze towers and match 3 other condos. It should double the condos pretty quickly and reach diamond.

    • Buy the boost for the chinese monster and make and swap to make bronzes tht way when they double the eventually got diamond quickly my current high score is 40 billion my gamertag is kermitkush

  1. Yellow and green earn points. Red and blue keep your tower alive. So you generally want to have one of each combo (not both yellow/green or red/blue) . I like keeping green (to double things) and red (to eliminate off colors) to climb the score. Try to get a color between three diamonds, then kick away red (which is easy because he slows things down until 3 reds come along). Then hopefully yellow comes out, and you toss him a coin before connecting the diamonds or cats. BOOM. Megazone. Now stay focused and make as many combos as you can, even if you’re wildly tossing away off colors for a bit.

  3. cats = bad condos – 3 concretes, 3 bombs, 2 bombs + 1 concrete, 1 bombs + 2 concretes. cats X3 = bad condos X3 = diamond X1

  4. yeah! My score now is still lower than you guys but better than mine before! It’s 7.449.118.761, the last time is 790.186.465! I’m so happy! Now, my OLDER brother can’t defeat me! Thanks about the tips about ‘cats’!

  5. Diamond in less than a minute:
    Don’t worry about upsetting the monsters, match the blues and yellows (then reds) as quickly as possible.

    Ass soon as a green block appears, switch out a monster onscreen so he can crash the party. You should have a gold/silver/silver/bronze combination at the bottom of your tower. Feed him a silver, and make a set on top of the bronze as quickly as you can. This will build two bronzes, matchig to the first bronze for two silvers, etc, this should give you two diamonds if you work as quickly as possible. Took me several hours to get it, but I did it!! (my hi score is now in the 611trillion range)

  7. I’m on level 16. The only task I can’t accomplish is the Multiplier x50 in a single game. I get multipliers that are more than x50, and I still can’t advance to the next level. Anyone know what I may be doing wrong? Is thee something I am misunderstanding about the task explanation?

  8. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it
    out better?

  9. Thank you so much for the feedback dragon cyti! i will take note of your suggestions. i am a bit verbose haha! i’ll work on making my posts more reader friendly :D thanks again!
