It costs you 1qt. of spirit smoothie. After every 45 minutes, you get 1 more smoothie. This item can increase the character’s spirit by 10,000.

Hotel Transylvania Monsters game tips & cheats⇓

#1.) Match The Best Color Gems To Drain More Spirit

As stated above, all the monsters or characters have different stats. You have to figure out the gem stats and try to match that color gem in the battle that drains more spirit. Go to the team -> character -> level. At this screen, you can check how much spirit will be drained based on the color of the gem. For instance;

  • Red Gem – 63
  • Blue Gem – 33
  • Black Gem – 33
  • Yellow Gem – 76
  • Purple Gem – 47

In the above table, the yellow gem has more draining points. So when you match or break yellow gems, you will deal more damage. In short, focus on matching the best color gem.

#2.) Activate The Special Ability ASAP

Special ability deals or drains more spirit than normal moves. To end the match or get the victory quickly, charge the special ability and use it as soon as possible. If you don’t know how to activate it, then read the special ability guide above. You can unlock new special abilities by increasing the rarity(star level of characters). How to raise the star level(from 2 stars to 3 stars)? Collect the booprints shards and increase the characters’ rarity.

#3.) Choose the strong class character

In Hotel Transylvania Monsters game, before you start the battle or match, you have to pick the character. You should not select random characters from the list. First of all, check the enemies’ class and pick the mighty class characters(class advantage). If you don’t know how to use class advantage, read the class guide above.

#4.) Focus On The Campaign Mode First

You can obtain free booprint shards by playing this mode’s levels. And it would be better to play both sub-modes; normal and hard(better rewards, tough battles). Complete the levels of this mode as soon as possible and unlock all the characters(that can be obtained from the loot).

The reason is you get high-quality characters in the last stages and prior to it, you get low-quality characters. And if you spend all the items to upgrade these characters, then you would not be able to upgrade high-quality characters.

#5.) Replenish The Character’s Spirit

The battle system in Hotel Transylvania Monsters game is different. For example; your character’s spirit is 4000. And you played a match and the enemy drained 2000 spirit. Now you are left with only 2000 spirit and it will not reset to the default value(4000) for next rounds. You will have to use smoothie or wait for a certain amount of time in order to replenish. Read the replenish guide above.

#6.) Increase the power of your character

Make sure to level up your best characters to increase their power. As you progress, the difficulty level will increase. Another way to increase the power of characters is to equip the relics. Read the relics guide above.

#7.) Match The Loot Caskets

On the matching board, there would be some loot caskets. Match them to get more rewards.

#8.) Open The Loot Box

On the main screen, at the bottom right side, there would be a loot box icon. Tap it and claim the reward. You can claim it multiple times a day.

#9.) Complete the quests

At the top menu, tap the quest icon to check the missions. Complete all the missions to get precious items such as crystals, coins, terror tome, and much more.
