My Singing Monsters
- Main article: My Singing Monsters
My Singing Monsters is a game where the player develops a musical community with monsters. Monsters can be bought, bred on, and transferred between nine islands in the game. Coins, the main currency in the game, are produced by the monsters to buy Single-element Monsters, buy treats to make monsters produce more coins, and much more. Leveling up allows a wider variety of aural and visual enhancements to be made in the game, including decorations and unlocking more monsters.
My Singing Monsters: Dawn of Fire
- Main article: My Singing Monsters: Dawn of Fire
My Singing Monsters: Dawn of Fire is the prequel game to My Singing Monsters, and involves much different gameplay. Monsters no longer generate coins automatically, instead coins are earned through completing requests given from monsters. Structures in the game mostly deal with processes of producing the Crafting Items the monsters request. Leveling up also unlocks a variety of game features, including new areas of the Continent, new structures, and new Crafting Items to give to the monsters. The game includes some game mechanics, such as the Market (not the same as the Shop) and the Skyship, that appear exclusively to this game.
- Main article: My Mammott
My Mammott is a spin-off game of My Singing Monsters, featuring a Mammott that the player can feed and play with. Diamonds are the primary currency in the game, being only gained through the spin-the-wheel or through hitting Cybops with Thumpies in the Thumpies Toss mini-game. The Mammott is fed with treats, which cost diamonds, but feeding enough treats unlocks a new level which unlocks new tricks that he can do.
- Main article: My PomPom
My PomPom is the second spin-off game of My Singing Monsters, featuring a PomPom that the player can feed and play with. Diamonds are also the primary currency in the game, being only gained through the spin-the-wheel or by juggling a pompom with a diamond symbol on it. PomPom can also be fed with treats, which costs diamonds, and again feeding enough treats unlocks a new level which unlocks new tricks for her to do. The mini-game featured in the game is for PomPom to juggle pompoms with her hands for as many times as possible.
Furcorn's Jelly Dreams
- Main article: Furcorn's Jelly Dreams
Furcorn's Jelly Dreams is a spin-off game of My Singing Monsters, featuring a match-three game with a spin on it. Orders must be completed to finish each level. Unlike other match-three games, where there is only the option to switch candies, diamonds, etc., there only options are to either pop single jellies or slide jellies in a specific direction. Like Candy Crush Saga, there is a lives system where each life is lost whenever a level attempt has failed, and lives regenerate after a specific amount of time. Combining more than three jellies together make powerups and combining powerups creates stronger powerups.
- Main article: Jammer Splash
Jammer Splash is a spin-off game of My Singing Monsters. It is a match three game with its own twist, similarily to Furcorns Jelly Dreams. In order to complete a level, the goal of the level must be reached. Instead of swapping, in jammer splash, the options are popping, sliding, and combining jammers. Whenever a level is lost, a life is lost, and in a certain amount of time, the lives replenish. when 3 jellies or more are combined horizontally, it creates a weapon. Weapons can be combined to create a stronger weapon, however, when this is done, the weapon automatically goes off.
- Main article: Thumpies (game)
Thumpies is a rhythm-based game where the player is challenged to correctly tap in time with the Thumpies' drumming rhythm. The player selects a song and a difficulty to play with. The player denotes each rhythm by tapping each drum, and each on-time tap raises the Thump'o'meter, which is the score system in each level. Unlike most games, which use a series of notes for rhythm, mechanic of bouncing in time is required to get to the next level in a certain song played. The game becomes more complicated as more Thumpies, more drums, and more complex rhythm is added.
My Muppets Show
My Muppets Show was a game very similar in game mechanics to My Singing Monsters. It was released as part of the promotional effort for the 2014 movie Muppets Most Wanted. The game servers were shut down on December 10, 2014, so the game is no longer functional.

Burn the Rope
Burn the Rope is a puzzle game in which the player has a board of intertwined ropes, and must rotate their mobile device in order to burn away the rope. There are many different levels with new aspects in each.
