Check out our tips & tricks for Magical Forest.
Magical Forest isn’t a very difficult game as long as you understand the basic concepts. The goal is to raise a variety of pets, harvest the goods that they produce in order to sell them and buy more expensive pets. Harvest the more expensive goods, sell them and get even more expensive pets, so on and so forth, until you’ve saved a million gold coins. Once you have a million gold, you can buy back the forest from the Chainmaw Logging company.
You begin in the first area of the forest with 4 Honey Fuzzy pets. Your goals to pass this scene are shown on the right hand side of the menu at the top of the screen. You need to collect 10 resources and 150 gold.
As your pets drop resources, click on them to collect them. When the bubble appears over their heads with the image of berries, click on the animal to feed them. If any monsters arrive on the scene, click on them repeatedly to destroy them. Simple, right? Great. Let’s move on.
As you meet the goals for each level, or scene, you will be able to purchase a new breed of pet. Each new pet will give more expensive resources for you to collect and sell. You can sell any of the pets in your care at any time, however, you may need them later on. Just because there are new pets available does not automatically mean that the earlier pets are not necessary.
Along with the resources dropped by the pets, you can also collect bonus items that come in the shapes of gift boxes and collectible items which will give you “helper” points. The bonus presents can bestow additional food for the pets, gold bonuses and even powerful spells later on in the game. The helper points earned from the collectibles will allow you to purchase and upgrade machines that will help you manage the farm.
NOTE: You can sell any collected resources at any time in the game. Selling resources does not diminish the overall amount of collected resources. You can sell them in the middle of any level in order to upgrade your equipment, spells or purchase more berries for feeding.

As the goal is simply to earn 1,000,000 gold to buy back the forest from the Chainmaw Logging company, it would seem that getting the most resources from the most expensive pets would do the trick. However, each “level” as a set of goals that must be completed to unlock the next creature and the next level. Oftentimes, the goals for a level require resources from less expensive pets making it important to keep many different creatures on hand at all times.
As you complete goals, tackle enemies and earn experience points, you can upgrade your creatures. Give them bonus experience, increase the amount of time they stay full before needing to be fed or increase the amount of resources they produce (up to 3 per turn).
Upgrading the creatures is very important, as later levels will require a great number of resources and it is much easier to have fewer creatures that produce more than it is to look after a lot of creatures that only produce a few resources.
Try not to buy more pets than you can handle. The screen can get overcrowded very easily! At the same time, don’t sell all of your lower level pets as you may need them for level goals later on.
Each level has a unique set of goals that must be reached before you can progress to the next level and purchase more expensive creatures. Amounts shown are resources needed, not number of creatures. For example – 20 Honey means that you need to collect 20 resources from the Honey Fuzzy creatures, not that you need to own 20 Honey Fuzzies.
Level 1 – 10 Honey Fuzzy resources / 180 gold
Level 2 – 15 Honey Fuzzy resources, 5 Grass Fuzzy resources / 360 gold

Level 15 – Earn 1,000,000 gold
You do not need to complete all 15 levels to win the game. If you earn 1,000,000 gold in any level, you automatically win! Keep that in mind if you want to play all the way through level 15 to get to see all of the different creatures.

PRESENTS, COLLECTIBLES AND HELPERS
Along with the spells and weapons, there are three mechanical helpers that you can earn which will aide you in your goals. The helpers are purchased using “helper points’ that are earned by gathering the collectibles that appear on the screen at random times. Each collectible is worth 1 helper point. The collectibles can be hard to spot, so keep your eye out for them! You can earn medals for gathering all of the collectibles. Presents will appear on screen from time to time and give you small bonuses. The presents look like little gift boxes and their color determines the sort of bonus you will receive.
Red Boxes – berries or healing spells
Grey Boxes – experience points
Yellow Boxes – gold
Blue Boxes – 1 powerful spell (offensive or defensive)
Earth Fairy – small green fairy shaped items
Golden Fairy – small yellow fairy shaped items
Dark Fairy – dark greyish / teal fairy shaped items
Black Pearl – large black pearls
White Pearl – large white pearls
Sapphire – large blue gems
Diamond – large white gems
Emerald – large green gems
Ruby – large red gems
Fire Toadstool – large red mushrooms
Magical Bean – small purple beans
Agate – large blue gems
There are three different kinds of helpers you can buy with your helper points. Each helper can be upgraded to level 3 with additional helper points. Once you purchase a helper, it will appear on the screen. To use it, you simply need to keep it wound up by clicking on it periodically. An energy meter shows beside each helper so you can see when it is running out of power and needs to be rewound.
Defender – This helper will attack enemies that approach your pets.
Level 1 costs 1 helper point
Level 2 costs 10 helper points
Level 3 costs 18 helper points
Feeder – This helper will feed your creatures for you.
Level 1 costs 5 helper points
Level 2 costs 15 helper points
Level 3 costs 21 helper points
Collector – This helper will pick up resources from the ground.
Level 1 costs 7 helper points
Level 2 costs 18 helper points
Level 3 costs 25 helper points
At random times, small quests will be available within some of the levels. The quests are small challenges that you can perform to earn extra gold, experience or pets! They come up randomly and change for each game, so you may or may not see all of the quests listed below in your game. There could be other quests and variations on the quests below that did not appear during the times I played through the game.
1) Perfect Health – Do not let any creatures get hurt while the timer is running. Duration – 2:00, Reward – 1,000 experience divided by all pets
2) Small Harvest – Do not pick up more than 20 resources before the timer runs out. Duration 2:00, Reward – 1,000 gold
3) Tiny Harvest – Do not pick up more than 10 resources before the timer runs out. Duration 2:00, Reward – 5,000 gold
4) Christmas Morning – Pick up more than 5 presents or collectibles before the timer runs out. Duration – 2:00, Reward – 1,000 experience.
5) Massive Harvest – Pick up more than 20 (or 50) resources before the timer runs out. Duration – 2:00, Reward – 500 gold
6) Ice Growth Infestation – Burn all the Chainmaw Ice Growths on the screen using fire spells. Reward – one free creature of the last unlocked variety.
There does not seem to be any penalty within the game for not completing these quests, other than not receiving the reward.
1) Do not buy too many pets at once. It can become quite challenging to pick up all of the resources, keep the pets fed and fend off enemies at the same time!
2) Keep an eye on the level goals before selling pets. You may need resources from a less expensive pet later on in the game.
3) Whenever you’re sure that you won’t need a certain pet’s resources again, sell them in the shop. This will keep your forest from becoming overcrowded.
4) Sell your collected resources often! They will still count toward the goal and give you plenty of cash to purchase weapons, spells, berries and new pets.
5) Keep an eye out for the collectibles, they disappear faster than the resources and can be very hard to see.
6) Purchase the helpers (using helper points) as soon as possible. They will really help you keep things running smoothly.
7) Upgrade your pets as soon as possible! Lengthening the time between feedings will help keep food costs down as well as make it easier to focus on collecting resources.
8) Upgrading the creature production levels will make collecting resources a lot faster.
9) Buy new weapons as soon as they’re available. They will help keep the enemies under control.
10) Heal any injured pets as soon as possible. Pets will not drop resources while they are injured.
11) The shield and attack totems will help during the Perfect Health quests.
12) Focus on collecting the resources you need to complete the level goals if you have a lot of pets. Let the collector get the extra resources.
13) Keep your helpers wound up so they will continue to perform their actions.
14) You can sell creatures for cash later on in the game if you’re close to goal. Remember that upgraded creatures sell for more than level 1 creatures.
15) If you want to see all of the creatures, try not to earn 1,000,000 gold before the last level.
