Monsters, Inc. Run Cheats and Tips


Animated heroes Mike and Sulley are on a mission to rescue Boo in Disney's newest iPhone and iPad release, Monsters, Inc. Run. This endless runner tasks players with navigating their way through tricky obstacle courses filled with enemies, bottomless pits and other hazards. There's also a bunch of loot to grab, and with that being said, let us help give you an edge with this Monsters, Inc. Run cheats and tips guide.

Collect Gold Coins

The more gold coins you have in the virtual bank, the more cool stuff you can buy at the Store. With this in mind, be sure to pick up as many coins as possible, and be on the lookout for larger coins with blue M's. The yellow and white ones are worth 2X and 5X, respectively.

Use Scare Tags

In most circumstances, Mike is too small to bust through obstacles like Scare Blocks, but this is no problem for Sulley. Fortunately, you can swap characters by collecting Scare Tags littered throughout each level. Switch to Sulley or another Scarer, and you'll be able to destroy everything in your path.

Tip: Mike can break blocks, but you'll need to pick up a boost.

Keep A Few Saves Handy

Saves bring your monster back from the dead, should it take damage or fall into a pit. You'll need bucks to buy them in the Store.

X1: 10 Bucks

X5: 40 Bucks
X10: 70 Bucks
X25: 150 Bucks

Gadgets, Gadgets And More Gadgets

Monsters, Inc. Run comes with a plethora of useful gadgets. The Phast, for example, gives your monster boost and double jump power, while the MOR RAY converts Coins into 2X Coins. You can even upgrade these gadgets to make them more effective. First, however, you'll need to unlock these toys, either by leveling up or buying them early with Bucks.

-A yellow medallion with blue triangle gives you a speed boost.

-To get 100 percent completion per level, collect the following items: a ball, teddy bear and sock.
