As a player your task is to attack (and ultimately defeat by clicking on them) iconic monsters in order to get your hands on gold coins. These coins can be used to unlock new abilities (up to 9 currently) and to hire heroes.
You can also join forces with other players to form Clans – needed if you want to take on the mighty Immortals.
The game was developed in partnership between R2Games and Playsaurus, with Vice President of R2Games USA David Chiu stating:
“Playsaurus has shown tremendous talent in crafting a unique idle RPG mash-up that took the internet by storm. We are grateful to have the opportunity to partner on Clicker Heroes and bring the game to mobile to an even bigger audience of players all over the world.”
Clicker Heroes certainly appears to have got off to a great store, achieving a number 1 ranking in the US iPhone App Store in the Adventure Game category, and third must downloaded game overall. This follows on from it’s huge success on Stream, making it into the top 10 list of most played games with over 55,000 players.
In total there are over 1,000 zones for you to work your way through so it should keep you busy this month. Just be warned, idle games like this are addictive so be prepared to get hooked on it pretty quickly! Is Clicker Heroes going to be as big as Angry Birds? Most probably, and you may wish you never started.
The game is free to download, with additional in-game purchases of more Rubies available.
