Have you ever dreamt of having your own dungeon? One filled with cackling minions, and with an interior designed by Iron Maiden? If this sounds like your dream home, then you probably been playing too much Dungeon Keeper.

No, not the new iOS version of Dungeon Keeper developed by Mythic Entertainment. The old one created by Peter Molyneux's '90s-era studio Bullfrog.

The newly released iOS reboot – published by EA - once again puts you in charge of your own subterranean kingdom. As with the original, you have ti fill it with all kinds of horrors and traps in order to protect your homestead from other underground dwellers.

Once happy with your fortifications, it is time to battle AI enemies or human-controlled dungeons. Doing so will add gems to your treasure room, which will allow you to further expand your new dwelling.

However, doing all of this takes time. In fact, preparing a single area of dungeon floor for fortification can take up to 24-hours.

However, if you don't want to wait an entire day to ready a single tile, you can always speed up the wait timer with gems. Ranging from a Fist Full of Gems (£2.99 / $4.99), to a Mountain of Gems (£69.99 / $99.99), these boost packs with let you buy your way past time restrictions - until the gems run out, that is.
