Thank goodness. I'd been playing cookie clicker, and something was missing - no, something was there. Some vestigal shred of novelty, of design. God, it even rapidly stopped rewarding me for manually increasing a counter after the first couple of minutes, encouraging me to just focus on buying things. Ugh, and it expected me to manage different types of purchases, interlocking with each other. Can you imagine? God, it even used this clickiness as a way of gently unfolding new mechanics and snippets of story. And it had - ugh - humour.

But with this, all of that is excised! Look, it's an interchangeable thing. clickclickclickclickclickclick. oh wow, an interchangeable thing of a different colour! clickclickclickclickclickclick. Truly, I am saved by this bland replica.

While csmithpub's commentary might have been a bit too sarcastic for my taste, I can't argue with the point being made. This is an easily solvable game where the only flavor (text in the purchase pop-up) is remarkably skippable.

I don't know whether I like the gear check nature of the 'bosses'.

There is one point that has been missed however. Not a redeeming one, but just a connection to be made: All of these assets are from Playsaurus' social Diablo-like game "Cloudstone". If you had fun with that, you'll be nostalgic while messing around with this.

I get it, but I don't at the same time. Why am I playing this? How is this even a game? I'm clicking my mouse button. That's it. I'm picking where to spend the money, and eventually I'm just leaving the screen to entertain itself while I do other things, because that's the only way to make enough money to upgrade. This is boring.

But I get it. I like the little flash of light and color when I level up a hero or get a new item, even though it does not change the game i.e. I'm still sitting here clicking. It's like the weakest possible reward for the laziest amount of effort.

But again, I get it. I played an embarrassing amount of that similar candy game that had no graphics to speak of. This one looks much nicer. I've had it running since last night. It fulfills some low-expectation, cheap thrills part of the mind.

Enjoying it as a long term background thing, but I've got a minor glitch to report: it seems that tooltips for certain heroes with longer descriptions don't account for the offset caused by the "next level" section that appears when you hire the hero, and as such the description gets cut off in the middle of a sentence once you hire the hero. Out of the heroes I own so far, this happens with:

Bobby, Midas and Jerator

This game gets to a point where to progress you have to just let it run overnight so you can build up money to buy the next upgrade. After 45 levels it recycles the levels and there are no new monsters. I don't know where the warriors you can buy ends. I'm still try to grind enough money to get the ice wizard. The game gets choppy when you get into the millions and billions of hit points per second damage.

Wow, some people have some really strong opinions on idle games. There are many, many more of these games than cookie clicker/candy box/a dark room, and there are many that are far worse than this one.

That being said, I have enjoyed this game so far. I like the idea of bosses as DPS checks, and I enjoy the little tidbits about each character in the skill descriptions. I only have a few tips:


Don't stress about which level is best to farm on. They're remarkably well balanced. For example, when I was considering whether to farm at 48 or 49, I measured GPS with a stopwatch. Although the gold received and time taken were very different, GPS was identical.

Don't buy the click upgrades until their expense becomes negligible to you. Clicks are extremely weak in comparison to DPS, similar to cookie clicker.

Midas

is all about the gold modifier: all 4 of his upgrades increase it

And from what I saw there's at least one more:

Abaddon - his upgrades cause him to increase your total dps by a small percentage each time he levels up (instant application, NOT a multiplier - that means that any dps gained after his lvlup will not be affected by the bonus from his lvlup, only by the ones that come afterwards, and as such it may be better to wait with his levels for maximum effect)

Just to clarify the second spoiler:

Does that mean I should level up Abaddon as far as possible before purchasing his upgrades, rather than immediately buying the upgrades the level they become available?

The way I understand it, it's quite the opposite:

The more of his upgrades you have, the bigger the increase with each Abaddon's level - this means that you definitely want his upgrades as soon as they become available, but you may want to wait with the level ups themselves so the DPS the bonus is calculated from is higher - as I said it's an instant (though permanent) flat DPS bonus, calculated at the moment of the level up, not a multiplier.

I don't know if you have the tooltips for his upgrades available yet so I'll quote one for you, just in case:

Your team gets an additional 0,25% / 0,5% / 0,75% / 1% (depends on which of his upgrades) DPS each time Abaddon levels up. The effect is applied to your current DPS when you level up, not to future DPS.

As an example, let's say Abaddon is level 10 and has no upgrades yet. Your team's DPS is, for simplicity's sake, 400M or so. You buy the first upgrade, which is the 0,25% from the tooltip i quoted above, and seemingly, nothing happens.
You then buy Abaddon a level up, and you get an extra 0,25% of the total DPS, which in this case is 1M, and you'll also get Abaddon's own increase from the level up (I'm not sure which applies first, but it shouldn't matter much)
That extra 1M will always be 1M, even if your total DPS increases to many times the original 400M through other means, though you can obviously increase this bonus with more level ups for Abaddon.

Upgrade vs. level:

After reading through your example, I'm getting a recommendation to purchase his upgrades as soon as they're available, rather than leveling him up as far as possible before purchasing the periodic upgrades?

I think that's what you're saying, right?

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

CrankYanker:

I think the correct strategy for Abaddon is not to level him up past 10 until endgame. Each time you unlock one of his skills, every subsequent level will increase your DPS by a static percentage. This means that you'll get a better bonus per level the longer you wait to upgrade him (because your DPS will be higher).

When you enter the phase where you're upgrading Abaddon, you should absolutely get his skills as soon as they come available. If you don't, you're losing his level-up bonus entirely.

I think there are only two heroes after him, so I think the strategy is to get everyone's skills, then focus solely on Abaddon.

Sounds about right.

Definitely get the upgrades at the level on which they unlock. The problem is that if you wait with his level ups until you have a higher DPS, the resulting gained DPS from his level ups will be far higher. Getting the upgrades themselves early is perfectly fine though.

Mantus:

I'm not so sure about leaving Abaddon as the very last thing to do... some of the upgrades of high-end heroes need Abaddon's upgrades to be purchased first, so you might miss out on a lot of DPS in the mid-to-endgame if you do that.

I sort of doubt there's a right and wrong approach, I'd just recommend everyone to explore the math behind Abaddon a bit and decide for themselves.

Also, from my own experience there are at the very least 4 heroes after Abaddon, but they're rather expensive so you probably just don't see them yet - let your gold pile up and they should show up. I think the first one you're missing would be Beastlord, which costs 300q (yes, 300 quadrillion) to hire.

The original game's on facebook, called Cloudstone. You may enjoy this game more if you get the story line, but that may just be me. Just as an insight about Cloudstone, Cloudstone's about references and puns and whatnot, and it's a RPG melee/shooter game where you can customize your character with your gear. There's pets too. If I remember correctly, there's now a farming function and a housing function.

The game had a lot of cute graphics, but it just got repetitive and tedious after a while. When idle games get repetitive without any clear end, I either quit or cheat to unhook myself from them.

I'm generally against cheating, so I won't write down how to do it, but I'll share a few things about late game that you may be curious on:

There is no last area, even after level 100. The enemies are recycled over and over. They do get larger however. I stopped at floor 135, where the heroes run out and there's no viable way to continue without even more cheating. Abaddon was the only hero that made a dent in my DPS, but it got really expensive to level him at 1000+ levels.

One character does have an upgrade that restarts the game; you keep your achievements but nothing else. You could consider this the end, unless you really want to collect all achievements.

After reading your post I tried to do it - not used the modified save, myself, but figured it out.

First, you hit the menu / wrench icon and click export.
This'll put an encoded representation of your save into your clipboard. I had a look at that and on a hunch, I got the encoding right on the first try - b64 / Base 64. Just google "b64 decoder" and paste your save there.

In the decoded version, you should easily find where your gold is - modify it, and then encode (you may need to google a b64 encoder, depending on the result google gave you - good ones should work both ways) it back and import back into the game.

For faster mouse clicking on windows

Press left Alt + left Shift + num lock to turn on "mouse keys". Then on your numerical keypad + = double click 5 = click.

Dear creator of this game,
kindly learn some maths.

1,000,000.
That is 1 million.
Anything over a million should NOT have K (meaning thousand) after it.
Please correct this mistake.

Eh? 1,000,000 = 1,000 × 1,000, so "1,000K" is a perfectly valid way to write one million.

No.

It REALLY isn't.

1,000,000. That's a million.
1,000k. That's just being lazy.
It might still be a million but it's incredibly difficult to read once you start reaching billions and trillions.

I got to level 100 and then I got bored thinking that it was just more of the same old same old just with higher numbers. So, I did the reset upgrade and all it did was make the enemies be really tiny. Is that all there is left to this game? Tiny enemies and just do the same boring game again?

I think this game is poorly coded. It runs choppy unless you throw a brand new computer at it. All it's doing is subtracting. It shouldn't be using up that much processing power. I imported my game onto my newer computer and it ran better, but there is no reason for that.

If anyone is wondering when to apply the upgrades to each of the helpers, just do it as soon as you can afford it. You can do math and whatnot to figure out when the best time is to hire one helper over another or when to apply the "increases DPs by 100%" stuff, but since this game is a "run it over night because there's nothing else you can do right now" kind of game, there's no point in finessing anything. There's no advantage to waiting until some higher helper level before applying any upgrades. Once you get far enough in the game, that helper is useless anyway. Just apply all upgrades as soon as you can.

From my experience, the last helper is the wind god. No other helper appears after that and since you run out of new levels at level 50 anyway, there's no point in continuing past level 100.

Just for fun I tried to get the first helper up to level 1000, but I made it as far as around 500 because the cost skyrockets and eventually I got bored of waiting for more coins and reset the game. A sextillion coins for 5 extra click damage is ridiculous. I think the author was making it so you get the hint that you should stop upgrading your helpers. Some helpers go to 100 but some of the later ones are practically maxed out at 75. And, click damage is useless after a while anyway. All it does it get you coins a little faster in the early levels.

A few times I helped a boss battle along with clicking, but eventually the strength needed to kill a boss is much greater than what clicking can do.

I'm doing an experiment with no clicking right now. It's been running an hour or so and all I have is a level 1 Treebeast grinding for me. I'm going to let it go and see how far it gets before I need to hire a new helper and right now I think I can let it just play by itself and I can have a Wandering Fisherman pretty soon. My theory is that you can get just as far without ever clicking as you can if you click a lot early on. After the first few day, I figure whether or not you ever clicked anything will be moot.

I also have found it essential to click through bosses, though I'm sure there are alternate ways to play where you don't have to. But like Dora said, it would probably up the grind time considerably.

After you get all the click upgrades, click strength should hover somewhere around 3% of your DPS. Multiply that by how many clicks per second you can maintain in a 20-30 second boss battle, and that's how much DPS you gain. For me, that's 8/sec, for 24%. The "vibrating hand" trick could net me twice that in bursts, but it's hard to sustain. Saniel's numlock trick is obviously game-breaking - I can't even calculate how much DPS that adds.

So yeah, for taking down bosses, clicking is definitely worth it. Clicking isn't as powerful as it is in Cookie Clicker, though, where you can stack Frenzy and Clicking Frenzy, click like nuts for a few seconds, and walk to the bank. Makes me want to open up my old game and use Saniel's trick...

If you want to make money quickly, it is recommended to always kill the 2nd last boss you have completed. Bosses drop a ton of cash and when you kill an easy boss, killing them is extremely easy. The money will keep rolling in. :)

The addition of the skills has changed the game somewhat. The biggest thing is that Abaddon is no longer quite the special case he was.

Here's a list of the skills and the heroes that give them.

Clickstorm - Cid
Powersurge - Ivan
Lucky Strike - Alexa
Metal Detector - Broyle
Golden Clicks - Midas
Dark Ritual - Abaddon
Super Clicks - Beast lord
