DNA Play in the App Store Best of 2015! Ranked #1 on the Top Paid kids Apps in US, UK and more

Create more than 200 BILLION monsters!

Start with a basic unformed figure and complete the gene puzzles to give it a fully grown torso, face and limbs. Then tweak the genes or simply tap on the creature’s body parts to trigger mutations. Observe how the tiniest change in the DNA code can lead to unimaginable new characteristics.
Watch your creature turn from yellow to red, grow pink hair and 6 eyes, have its ears transform into butterfly wings and its belly pop out and crave for food. Best of all, these are emotional creatures with vivid personalities, so prepare to be surprised!
Feed your monsters! Tweak them, push them, squeeze them, make them jump or slide! Go for a skateboard ride with them! Do they enjoy being chased by an elephant or being hypnotized? Are they afraid of the dark? Discover what makes them sneeze, laugh or cry, how their voice changes after mutating their faces!
Try, experiment and evolve! Why stick with 2 short legs when 4 tall ones are so much better for flamenco dancing? Keep transforming and observe which forms look better in various activities! Take photos and share your genetic blueprints so friends can clone your beasts.
