Shonen Idle

Upgrades and big eyes and pixels, oh, my! Shonen Idle is, as you might surmise from its title, an idle incremental game that pays loving homage to classic shonen manga of all sorts, by casting you in the role of the plucky hero/ine out to save the world from evil forces, one screaming ki attack at a time. Each map location has a set of enemies that, when you click the crossed swords icon next to them under the Combat tab, automatically dukes it out with them over and over. How fast you defeat them depends on your characters statistics, which can be improved by spending ki earned from defeating enemies on all sorts of upgrades in the Training section. As you defeat bosses and move to different locations, you'll unlock new outfits for your character, and pets to help you out, in addition to skills that can be activated for a temporary boost. The game looks fantastic, and is peppered with all sorts of subtle (and otherwise) references to tons of classic properties like Dragon Ball, with tons of achievements and bonuses to earn. On the downside, like most incremental games, it is largely a game of waiting and turning small numbers into bigger ones over and over, so if the shonen theme doesn't appeal to you, Shonen Idle might wear out its welcome sooner rather than later. If you do love the genre, however, Shonen Idle's wonderfully rendered style and shoutouts to beloved shonen titles across the board make it worth checking out.

@Nathaniel: sorry, can't help you.

However, it turns out not be worth your while: I had it idle for a couple of days (instead of a couple of hours), earned over 12Qa Ki points and none were awarded (and all my skill counters were still running even though the longest takes only a couple of hours to reset). Not coming back again.
