Reminiscent of digital pets of old, this retro style game sees you recruiting or capturing monsters to take care of them for the Dungeon Master; treat ailments, heal wounds, feed, clean, or train them!

Not enough? Send them on quests or to take part in epic battles! You can even give out your monster code to let people fight against your common or rare monsters (quest monsters are far to rare to let out of your sight!)

Still want more? Each monster comes with 2 frame animations, unique values for their 2 stats based on their level, and a hidden potential meter!

Make sure you feed and clean your monsters regularly, as if you don't they can die off within 4 days without your care. Favoured monsters can be brought back to life though with the resurrection stone (if you can find one)!
