This guide contains the locations and instructions on all of the Heart Pieces in Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom. So, let’s get started…

Village of Lupia

#1

In the Village of Lupia, you’ll need to be able to get to the top of the Windmill.

Monster Boy Heart Piece

Monster Boy Heart Piece

Double jump to the left and there will be a chest that requires you to fire 20 fire spells at it. Once you’ve done that, enjoy your Heart Piece.

#2

This one is west of Village of Lupia, to the left of Green Fields, in this frame…

Monster Boy Gold Armor Parts

Head through the door and here we’ll be needing the pig to sniff out the bombs underneath in order to see where to ground-pound as the lion. But to save on all of that transforming back and forth, here is the order to which you need to ground-pound: right, left, middle, left, middle, right, middle. If you did all that correctly, transform into the snake and squeeze through the hole to the left…

And down the bottom is a chest with the Heart Piece inside.

 

#3

The third Heart Piece in the Village of Lupia took so long to explain that we had to make a whole new article for it. It involves the mysterious corked well in the Village of Lupia. So to find out where it is and how to get it, click here…

 

The Misty Woods

#1

We’re going to want to head to this frame…

Monster Boy Heart Piece

In the frame below, climb the rope up…

Monster Boy Heart Piece

… and that’s all there is to that one.

The Sewers

#1

Head to this frame

Monster Boy Truffles

Sniff the cloud here and a ghost will appear and float to the left.

Monster Boy Truffles

When you get to here, the ghost will float downwards. Follow him down the ladder.

Monster Boy Truffles

Sniff the cloud here and he’ll appear again…

Monster Boy Truffles

And then a chest!

Crystal Caves

#1

In the Crystal Caves at this frame, you will need to head over to the right and spit venom to activate the crystal.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Now that the pillar has fallen down, transform into the pig and jump in the water. Head all the way down, making sure you get the bubble for air, and then the second bubble on the bottom-left (you’ll move sideways faster as a snake).

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Now that your back up with some time to spare, stick onto the moss on the left side of the pillar and wait for it to go back up. When it does, jump over to the left, go up and around and open the chest to find a Heart Piece.

#2

For the second Heart Piece in Crystal Caves, you will need to have the Crimson Boots to melt the ice and be able to transform into the frog. Once that’s covered, head to this frame…

Monster Boy Truffles Monster Boy Truffles Monster Boy Truffles

Stand on the ice and equip the Crimson Boots. You’ll melt through the ice and be able to collect the Heart Piece from the chest.

Monster Boy Truffles

 

The Lost Temples

#1

Warp to this frame in The Lost Temples (note that you’ll need to be able to throw four boomerangs in a row)…

Monster Boy Truffles

Head to the right, over the waterfall through the invisible wall to the right.

Monster Boy Truffles

And then you are going to need to throw those four boomerangs at once at the chest to get the Heart Piece inside.

Skullrock Beach

#1

For the Heart Piece here, head to this frame and transform into the frog…

Monster Boy Heart Piece

Swim down and to the left so that you’re under the boat and do you see where there’s a window without a cannon? Swim upwards through there and open that chest.

Boom! Heart Piece.

Monster Boy Heart Piece

 

Village of Aeria

#1

For the first Heart Piece of this section, head to this frame…

Monster Boy Heart Piece

The chest is on a floating island just left of the elevator door that goes up to Sir. Hoots.

Monster Boy Heart Piece

You’ll need to throw 20 bombs at it so if you don’t have enough, there is a magic shop directly underneath.

 

The Volcano

#1

For the first Heart Piece in The Volcano, head to this frame…

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

This part is like a game of Minesweeper but less confusing. You want to dash through as the lion, but there are hidden bombs within. To uncover them, you want to sniff them out with the Pig…

Monster Boy Heart Pieces Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Make your way to where the pig is in the image above and dash upwards as the lion…

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Dash to the right until you get to the image below. However, we’ll want to dash downwards as you’ll be able to see in the next image that there is just more bombs further to the right.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces Monster Boy Heart Pieces Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Now that we are where the lion is in the image above, dash to the right BUT STOP IN THE GAP, because as you see in the image below, there are more bombs. Once you’ve done that, ground-pound to the bottom.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Dash to the right but not all the way as there is a bomb at the end.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

When you get to here, dash upwards…

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Then a little to the left, up and open the chest to find another of the Heart Pieces.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

 

Haunted Manor

#1

(Note: You’ll need to have collected four Super Lightning Truffles in order to open this chest)

To be fair, this one is just before Haunted Manor. It’s actually in the Waterfall Area just before Deadwood Graveyard in this frame…

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

From the last waterfall, fly up-left through to a hidden area…

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Fly off to the left and weave in between the spikes as best you can.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

When you get to here, use your fireballs in rapid succession in order to clear your path.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Head through the door…

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

And in there is a chest that requires you to use 20 lightning spells on the chest. Transform into the pig and stand just underneath the chest. Now spam the X button (on Nintendo Switch) and once you know you’re in the right position, close your eyes unless you want to feel like your in a club with an intense strobe light in it.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

#2

To get this Heart Piece, you will need to have beaten Mack Malino in a race for the second time and have got the Dragon Talisman back.

In the main room, go to the top-left corner and breathe fire on the bat lantern statue by holding down X.

Monster Boy Haunted Manor

This will create a portal. Head through it and drop down to the bottom in order to possess the heavy armoured statue in the bottom-left corner of this room (you have to be very quick)…

Monster Boy Haunted Manor

Simply move it out of the way so that you can head through the door behind it. In this room is a chest with the Heart Piece inside…

Monster Boy Heart Piece

 

Castle of Lupia

#1

There’s only one Heart Piece in the Castle of Lupia, so let’s get it! Head to this frame…

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

On the ledge, equip the Cloud Boots.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Step off and the wind will take you onto the cloud. Jump upwards and the wind will carry you to the next one.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Then jump off to the right and onto this cloud…

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

And here, flick the switch.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

That will lower the pillar which will allow you to get to the door by walking off to the left and letting the wind take you there.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces Monster Boy Heart Pieces

In here is a puzzle in itself. You’ll need to equip the Morning Star and jump and attack the ground just as the penguin guard on the bottom is underneath the planks. This will bring him up a level, so repeat this process until he’s up there with you.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Take him out and you’ll get the cog that will unlock the wooden gate. Now go open that chest and grab that Heart Piece!

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

 

The Dark Realm

#1

For the one and only Heart Piece in The Dark Realm, head to this frame…

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

In the top-left corner, there will be some dark goo that you can hack into in order to make it down to the bottom.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

When you get there, focus your attention on the cyclops and take him down by dashing behind him when he tries to attack you and slash at his back.

Monster Boy Heart Pieces

Once the cyclops has been taken care of, the Heart Piece is all yours!
