Tips and General Information

Happy Island

  • Keep your Island clean. If your Island is dirty tourists will not spend money on the attractions.
  • Each time you click on trash at your own island you will earn 10 coins and 10 XP and each time you click on a Neighbor’s trash you will earn 3 coins and 3 XP. NOTE – You will find a maximum of 3 pieces of trash on your Neighbor’s Island at a time. This will renew every 30 minutes and there will be 3 more to click on. If you have the time and a large Neighbor base you can make quite a few coins this way.
  • There is a treasure chest on your Island and each of your Neighbors Islands approximately every 8 hours. Click on the chest to earn 100 Coins and 100 XP.
  • Rely heavily on your Neighbors to send you gifts for your Island. If you use these to decorate it you can focus your coins on purchasing attractions and upgrades.
  • The best strategy is to buy an attraction and then purchase the additional 2 upgrades and then purchase another attraction and then purchase its upgrades. If you follow this pattern you will earn a lot more money than having several low income attractions.
  • If you sell a decoration you will receive half the value of what it was purchased for and the same level of XP as coins. For example if you sell an item for 50 coins you will also receive 50 XP. If you are very close to leveling up it is wise to purchase decorations and sell them back to get you to the next level. Since you can only build on particular levels this can be very helpful to get you there.
  • If you can’t check your game frequently there is no penalty but checking it frequently will result in more coins overall as when you click on the money bags the immediately start to fill again. If they are full they just stay full until you click on them. Checking in at least every 4 to 6 hours to empty the bags will increase your overall income.
  • Visit your Neighbors several times a day. Every half hour you can pick up trash from your and your Neighbor’s Islands. This is a great way to increase your funds and XP points.
  • Keep Tourists on the Island by clicking on them when you see them heading for the boat or Airport and when the menu opens click on “Buy them a drink” this will cause them to walk in the opposite direction.
  • TIP – Placing your Airport on the top of the mountain (as seen in image above) makes it easier to see when tourists are trying to leave. As you see them climb the mountain, click on them and buy them a drink. This will cause them to turn around and visit more attractions instead of boarding the plane to leave. Keep the area around your Ship’s dock clear as well so you can see the Tourists trying to leave.

General Information
Happy Island

  • Happy Island is a Social Game developed by CrowdStar and released on Facebook in December of 2009
  • The goal of Happy Island is to take a deserted Island and make it into a Tourist Attraction by placing all kinds of attractions on it such as Hotels, Casinos, Amusement Parks, Gardens, Food Stands, and attract as many tourists as you can.
  • Each day any attraction you purchase for the Island will make money and experience points (XP) for you. With this money you can buy more advanced attractions or upgrade the ones you already have in place and the XPs are used to level up in the game.
  • Each attraction can be upgraded 2 more times increasing the occupancy and the amount of money it will make for you.
  • As you level up in the game your Island becomes physically larger to accommodate more attractions and decorations. Once you hit level 15 you can purchase an additional Island and tourists will move between them.
  • The game has 50 levels and only certain levels allow you to build attractions so between new attractions you can upgrade existing ones.
  • The more advanced your Island becomes the more tourists will visit and this means more money.
  • You will also be able to visit your neighbor’s Islands and earn money by cleaning trash and clicking on a treasure chest which holds 100 dollars you can click on once every
