Have you Played... Clicker Heroes?

Featured post

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Click. Click. Click.

The name is a misnomer. Clicker Heroes and games like it replicate the click-happy combat of combat, albeit in a world where enemies are static images that appear on screen, your hero is nowhere to be seen at all, and you don’t control movement whatsoever.

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.
