“Clicker Heroes” is now available for the iOS and Android devices, thanks to game developer Playsaurus. The title has been considered by many to be one of the most addictive web browser games of all time, and many fans are predicting that this will be an incredibly successful mobile game, maybe even the next mobile sensation.
According to a report from Forbes, the gameplay of “Clicker Heroes” is deceptively simple. Players basically click monsters to damage them, kill them, and then take the gold to upgrade the various heroes in the game. Basic enemies only take about one or two clicks, while the tougher ones will take even more clicks to be beaten. Upgrading the hero’s stats for more clicker damage can rectify this.
There is no set goal for “Clicker Heroes,” as players simply get better at killing monsters by constantly clicking the screen with a mouse. Destructoid has described the game as a perpetual time waster, which might be why it may become a big hit on mobile devices. Most people play mobile games to kill time, so “Clicker Heroes” makes perfect sense as a mobile game.
Another reason this game might be big is due to the popularity of games similar to it in nature, like “Tap Titans.” The game is similar in concept, as players must keep tapping enemies to level up and get better loot, so they can progress and take on tougher enemies.
It will also be easy to convert the controls of “Clicker Heroes” into mobile devices, as players will probably just tap the screen to dominate the game, instead of clicking on the mouse. The game is not likely to be renamed as "Tap Heroes” anytime soon, but the gist will be the same, with players endlessly tapping the screen to get the best rewards and kill the most monsters.
“Clicker Heroes” should be available for download on the iTunes App Store and Google Play. The game is a free-to-play title and will incorporate in-app purchases for those who want to level up faster or get more heroes to play as.
