Having problems completing a portion of Coconut Queen? When we released the game, we didn't create a strategy guide as most of the levels are reasonably user intuitive. We understand that some have experienced some difficulty. Here are a few tips:
COCONUT QUEEN INFORMATION:
A Handy Guide For The Recently Crowned
•You can win without beating all 58 chapters of Coconut Queen. But completing each chapter earns you a gem, which can be spent to enhance the game.
•There are two concepts that you must master. The first concept is Commercial Income, and the second concept is Appeal. We will explain them later.
•There is no right way to develop your resorts. Anything that helps you meet your objectives is fair game.
•There are so many things that you can do, but not all of them are necessary for the specific challenges in front of you. Focus your efforts on the actions that bring you closer to meeting your goal.
•With one exception, reserve the land near water exclusively for your rental buildings. Landscaping and commercial buildings don’t derive any benefits from being near the water.
•The exception is the Lifeguard Tower. These must be built near water, but they raise the appeal of all nearby rental buildings. They also make it easier to spot and shoo the gum gum sharks!
•Watch out for damaged property! You’re not receiving your full income until damaged stuff is repaired.
•When several things are damaged at once, picking the right order to fix things makes a difference. When resources are scarce, you are best off repairing lots of little stuff so as not to break the bank. When resources are plentiful, repair the big-ticket items first. They are the items most likely to help you meet your objectives.
•You can only have a maximum of 20 workers at once. That’s a lot.
•Commercial buildings don’t benefit from appeal, so they don’t need to be near anything else.
•You must master dividing your attention. Some stuff just takes time. Start something that takes a while, then go somewhere else and start something new. As long as there are enough resources, you and your workers can multi-task like crazy.
•Whenever you have a spare worker and unused open space, plant new jungle. By the next chapter, the new growth will be fully grown jungle, and that’s free construction materials.
•Some of the objects in the game can only be unlocked by playing the Free Play levels. I’m not telling which items, or how you get them. Just go develop!
•If you find yourself running out of time, you should know that you can always pause the game and think about your next move!
•Commercial income is generated by commercial buildings, but is slightly more complex than rental income. Each commercial building, such as a Concession Stand or a Water Sports Store, makes a certain amount of money off of the tourist population.
•As an example, a Concession Stand can make $10 per tourist every “payday”, which is every 15 seconds.
•Each rental building houses a certain number of tourists. A Cabana holds 2 tourists, a Cottage holds 4, and so on.
•So if your population consists of 50 tourists, then each Concession Stand is making $500 (50 x $10).
•If you build a Cottage, then each Concession Stand is now making $540 (50 + 4 new tourists, times $10). That’s only $40 more.
•But if, instead, you built another Concession Stand, that’s another $500, because it’s making another $10 off of each of your 50 tourists!
•So either way, you increase your Commercial Income, and it all goes towards your Bottom Line.
•Think of improvements—umbrellas, hot tubs, swimming pools—as emitters, and think of rental units—cabanas, cottages, condos, hotels, etc.—as receivers. Each receiver can receive appeal from every unique emitter that’s within “broadcast range”. Improvements or rentals on their own don’t generate appeal; it takes two to tango.
•One of the most profitable ways to lay out your resorts is to cluster your rental buildings around a group of appeal-raising elements such as pools, hot tubs, and beach umbrellas. This way, several rental buildings can benefit from just one of each type of improvement.
•Here’s a juicy secret: appeal translates directly to a percentage increase in rent! That’s right! If a Cabana has +10 appeal, then it’s generating an extra 10% rental money.
•It’s possible, through expert use of improvements, to DOUBLE the rental income of a building. Whoa.
Additionally, we've edited and compiled a few of the questions that users have submitted to us for the following cheat sheet:
The game promises that freeplay will unlock additional "buildings". In fact all buildings but one are unlocked in the course of regular play. The remaining one, reportedly Daycare, has been achieved by one or two people on the various forums, but nowhere can I find anyone so much as suggesting what the criteria are that must be achieved. Can you assist?
I am on the last level, and I can not complete it due to unavailable waterpark. I am not sure what I am doing wrong but there are 2 items which are temporarily unavailable and I need at least 1 of them to complete the level and finish the game. Is this a glitch or am I missing something?
After I complete the volcano level there are still two locked levels but no way to open them. I have completed all the available levels. What gives?
I need 3 gems total to go on to next levels I finished Kaba Lui park and can't get to any of the other levels. How do I acquire more gems to do this? Please help!! Thank you!
I am in the level where I need to salvage all of the buildings and it will not allow me to salvage the palace. When I click on the palace salvage is not an option and I cannot proceed past this level without being to able to salvage the palace. Help!
