Clicking Up A Storm: Tap-To-Play Games That Addict You
There's something to be said about games that ask you continually tap or click on the same thing in order to play. They're undeniably addictive, but you have to admit they're also extremely fun. From Cookie Clicker to Bitcoin Billionaire, they're varied too, even if you don't actually have to do much of anything when you play them. Check out these one-click greats for some fast fun the next time you find yourself hankering for some simple excitement.
Recently we reviewed Bitcoin Billionaire and sang its praises as an excellent amalgam of simple gameplay and addictive elements. You simply sit and mine Bitcoin, although of course you can't use it in the real world. That doesn't stop you from very quickly amassing a fortune as you tap your way into the high life. Its throwback pixel graphics and retro aesthetic are a big draw, especially for players who grew up in that era, and given its topical nature (who hasn't tried mining Bitcoin this year and last?) it's becoming a real hit on the App Store. It may be silly and more than a little bit one-dimensional, but once you get started it's almost guaranteed that you'll be unable to help yourself. Just one more click!
Though there technically wasn't a mobile version of the game that took the internet by storm, it worked surprisingly well on any smartphone with a web browser. But then the mobile gods smiled upon us and provided us with an app that could keep the clicking party going...on the go! Your goal? Keep clicking on an image of a cookie until the cows come home. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll wonder why you've spent so much time clicking on a picture of a sugary treat. But don't worry. You can earn power-ups and other goodies as you make your way through, and that alone is a good reason to keep playing. You really just need to forget the fact that you're incessantly clicking on a baked good. Let go of the stigma. Only then is when you'll truly progress. Don't be ashamed, we've wasted an unruly amount of time as well.
