You’re able to choose from nine distinct dungeon types and unleash more than 100 different creatures. Set devious traps, attract powerful boss creatures, and, when things get really hairy, support your creatures by casting powerful spells.

Each entry includes the name of the piece and the artist who created it, the year it was created, a thorough breakdown of the story behind it, its current location, and its dimensions. You’re able to share your favorites via social media, or simply save them for later viewing. The app also allows you to go back and time and search the archives.

The app also includes automatic beat detection, beat syncing between decks, and the ability to record and load mixes.
