You might think you're starting out as an ordinary fruit farmer, harvesting normal tangerines til your heart's content, but then the ordinary tangerine doesn't grow a mustache nor sport a dapper hat, now does it. Inspired by the ever popular Cookie Clicker, Gaz Thomas, creator of the Red Remover series, brings us Tangerine Tycoon. In this silly incremental game, start by clicking the tangerine to produce more tangerines (I'm sure there's a scientific explanation for that somewhere), then use your earned tangerines as currency to buy fruit producing shrubs, trees, farms, and other... not so conventional things that produce tangerines automatically.
As it works in idle games, you can leave your tangerine groves running in the background to multiply as you go about your daily business. But there are some things to discover as you click the arrows on the edges of the screen or use the [arrow] keys to navigate to different areas before you walk away. Somewhat unusual is the alternate system to make or lose money in the game. There's a functioning stock market (you know you want to invest in tangerine figurines) and also a double or nothing gambling screen. You start with a 50-50 chance to win, but can up your odds slightly by buying percentage points in your favor. These optional activities serve to keep you more engaged in your empire if you are so inclined. The graphics are charming if nothing special, and there are plenty of achievements to try for as you discover the secrets of tangerine farming... and the end might only be the beginning.
