Coins, avatars, beasties, oh my! Here is a list of any Awakening-related terms and what they mean to help you get the most out of your Awakening experience.

Backpack Icon - This allows you to change your avatar, see how many coins you have collected, and store all purchased items such as accessories, dance moves, and furniture. You can edit your avatar's name via your backpack as well.

Squad - These are the five besties that you will use in your battles. If you have collected more than 5 beasties, you can always change or remove the beasties in your squad.

Battle - Battles serve as an educational component. Awakening through the Play On Your Own option, you will encounter questions based on your grade level and the subject area you have chosen in your account.

During the battle, you have the following options:

  • Battle - Pick a move and then a question will appear shortly afterward. If answered correctly, the move selected will hit your opponent. If answered incorrectly, the move selected will miss the opponent.

  • Tag Out - This allows you to select another beastie to battle.

  • Run Away - Allows you to end the battle.

Beastie - Beasties are creatures that you will use in battles. Once you have collected beasties, you can click on the Paw icon in your navigation menu in order to view them. Beasties will need to be healed after battles in preparation for upcoming battles. Throughout the town, there are doctors in lab coats that will be able to restore beasties' health.

Essence - This refers to the special qualities of an avatar or a battle move. Remember that certain essences are stronger than others.

Coins - You may earn coins at the end of a battle and when you purchase an Adventure Pass. For more information on how to earn coins, click here.

Experience Points - Experience Points can be used to level up your beastie's moves and help them get more powerful.

Map Icon - This allows you to travel to different areas including the Town, the Arcade Room, The Wilds, and your House.

Present Icon - This allows you to access The Wilds by subscribing to an Adventure Pass.

The Salon - Navigate to this location to change your avatar's facial features and hairstyle.

The Town - This is where you go after school hours to have fun and battle computer avatars. In this location, you can find more beasties and learn along the way!
