Backyard Monsters: Unleashed is a new iPod/iPhone game by KIXEYE [1] and will release this fall [2]. It was announced on May 28, 2013 [3]. It seems that monsters are using the 3D design instead of their old sprites. It is unknown if Inferno will be included.



Not included

These monsters were not included in the game at all. One can assume that Kixeye has removed these monsters because insufficient spacing in the game. These are the monsters that where not included:


There are currently 2 champions in the game. Drull and Korath. Drull has 2 main differences one being that he gains armor. The second one being that he has no arms. Korath on the other hand has more armor and has more flat and solid feet. Champions evolve differently now. Instead of using eating to evolve


Drull in Final Form

now it uses xp.


Now he is a ranged attacker who shoots fire ball as early as level 1. Every odd numbered evolution he gains a special attack.

New Monster Names

In a recent update, monsters names have been changed in BMU. Here is a list of the new names:

Bandito -> Chuck

Ichi -> Gargantula

Fang -> Scorchion

Eye-Ra -> Boomer

Zafreeti -> Destronaut

Octo-Ooze (monster roles have changed, in Unleashed Octo -Ooze is a healer and Zafreeti is an aerial bomber) -> Healix

Differences From The Original Version

  • Many Defensive buildings, and all the monsters have been re-attributed to mirror thos in Clash of Clans
  • Bandito (now called Chuck) is now a ranged attacker and is second to be unlocked. 
  • Zafreeti (now called Destronaut) is an aerial ranged ATTACKER and primarily targets defensive towers.
  • Fang (now called Scorchion) is now a ranged attacker.
  • The Octo-Ooze (now called Healix) is a healer and heals ally monsters.
  • Eye-Ra (now called Boomer) now attacks the NEAREST TARGET, not walls. However, it deals 2x damage to any walls standing in the way.
  • There are new weapons called "bombs" which resemble needles. They are earned from Campaign Mode or (rarely) from picking mushrooms.
  • Champions were omitted, but the Champion Lair was released on February 12th, but only includes Drull and Korath.
  • Shiny can be purchased in different amounts from the desktop version.
  • Only 2 resources are available: Twigs and Goo. Putty and Pebbles were both removed from game, to make progress slower and spending shiny more appealing.
  • The designs of the monsters when they are attacking are similar to the modern artwork, the ones on the desktop version are like the older artworks.
  • The design of Moloch is used as a wild monster tribe in the overworld not in inferno.
  • There now is a build limit for hatcheries which is one.
