General information

The Monster Housing is a unit necessary in order to store monsters for use in attacks.  Monsters are added to by hatching in the Hatchery or transferring them from the Inferno Cavern once you have acquired Inferno. The 'Transfer Monsters' button will be visible in the Inferno Cavern menu or the Housing dialog box in your main yard.

Note: Any Monsters transferred out from the Inferno Yard cannot be tranferred back, but can be juiced.

Hell on Earth

The Monster Housing has maximum number of "Housing Spaces" depending on the upgrade level of the unit. Each monster has a different number of Housing Spaces described in their attributes. Once capacity has been reached, the housing will be Full, and no more monsters can be added. You can create more housing spaces by upgrading the Monster Housing unit, or clear space by sending monsters into battle, moving them to the Monster Bunker, or juicing with the Monster Juicer.

  • For example, a Level 1 Monster Housing has a capacity of 200 Spaces. One Octo-ooze needs 10 Spaces and thus 20 may be housed in the Level 1 Monster Housing. This requires that you plan accordingly as all monsters have unique spacing requirements and do not necessarily fit without some creativity. Any additional (overflow) monsters will not hatch, Instead they must wait in the Hatchery, until there is space for it to enter. In this regard, a few monsters can be queued up to be immediately ready once space is made through battle, juicing or transfers.


The game allows a maximum of four Housing in the main yard, and requires a Level 8 Town Hall.

8 4

To increase the capacity, the housing unit must be upgraded. Compound Expansion can also be purchased in the store for 375 shiny, which increases capacity by 25% for 24 hours. Additional Housing units can also be built on your nearby Outposts, available later in the game.

When a Housing is destroyed, all monsters currently in the Housing will be moved to another housing unit until maximum spacing capacity is reached. Once the other Housing units are taken down, and the available spacing is reduced, the monsters will be destroyed as there is nowhere for them to go.
