Review – Clicker Heroes (via Playsaurus)

Clicker Heroes is a game in which… the screen doesn’t move. There is no side-scrolling effects… and the monsters just pop into your screen.

What gamezebo.com and rockpapershotgun.com said was exactly true. This is more of a strategy game than a clicker game. You need to figure out how to level up the right “helpers” so that you never have to click again.

This… is worth the challenge.

Gamezebo.com said: “But interestingly, while Clicker Heroes is more complex than what an average observer might expect from a clicker game… Clicker Heroes’ big, colorful bad guys are a lot of fun to wallop, even though they don’t do much beyond stand there and take the abuse. That said, any guilt is negated by the satisfaction of finally killing enough monsters to hire that hero at the bottom of your list who costs six trillion gold coins. If you detest clicker games, Clicker Heroes won’t turn you into a compulsive clicker. If you’re fond of clickers (however guiltily), or if you remember throwing away hours of your life on the web-based version of the game, your restless finger will thank you for your download.”

Rockpapershotgun.com said: “Really, these are games about theorycrafting. You level up your hero or heroes, select new items and skills for them, and quickly find that you’ve no reason to click at all as damage happens automatically. The game is instead about finding the most efficient route from your weak beginning to your unstoppable goal. It’s, in some ways, a game best played by mathematicians and economists – or at least, by people who are willing to look up online calculators to find the best ways through. Clicker Heroes is a casual game for a hardcore audience.”
