Time Waster - Clicker Heroes'

Rate this item
(0 votes)

Clickers are becoming huge and much more advanced. Things have changed from the days of 'Cookie Clicker,' but not as much as you might think. For those who are not familiar, 'clickers' are a form of idle gameplay, which means the game keeps playing itself for you while you do things like write stories, watch your children or even shut down your computer. It's basically math made fun.

'Clicker Heroes' has slick graphics, cute bad guys (if you can call them that, since they're really nice about letting you kill them) and ample rewards for mowing them down. You purchase other heroes who wish to help and level them up to increase your idle damage per second. You can also unlock special powers that allow clicks to be made for you, get more gold, earn gold while you click and more. They all have cool-down periods that vary with the strength of the power itself, but are rarely more than an hour. Earn coins, level up and move on to the next level where the enemies are a little harder and take longer to kill.

And apparently there are a lot of levels. I'm around 120 or so, and there are achievements for levels into the thousands. Yeah, you could be doing this for a while. And if you start running into trouble, you can summon an ancient to help you kick some booty.

Now, if you're asking yourself why you want to play a game that essentially plays itself, just remember this is designed to be the perfect casual game. You futz about when you have the time, level your dude and then walk away. It will be waiting for you when you come back. Play it for free at
