Players can let their imagination run wild as they build and personalise their very own Moshi Monsters™ Village while caring for all of their rescued Moshlings.

Featuring Facebook social connectivity and friend code shares, players will be able to interact with their friend's villages and see how they compare.  

Commenting on the launch, CEO and founder of Mind Candy, Michael Acton Smith said: "We wanted to create a game that sparked people's imaginations and gave them the chance to create a Moshi Village exactly as they want. This is the first of many new mobile games we're developing and we're excited about launching them this year!"

Parents or players who do not want to use this feature are able to disable in-app purchases in their device's settings. Mind Candy has created an easy to use infographic specifically to explain how to do this which can be found at http://mindcandy.com/parents/.  In the coming months, Mind Candy will offer content updates and enhancements to the already feature-rich game.
