Free clicker Games
Clicker games are video games whose gameplay consists of the player performing simple actions such as clicking on the screen repeatedly. This "grinding" earns the
player in-game currency which can be used to increase the rate of currency acquisition. In some games, even the clicking becomes unnecessary at some point, as the game plays itself, including in the player's absence,
hence the moniker idle game.In an incremental game, a player performs a simple action – usually clicking a button – which in turn rewards the player with currency. The player may spend currency to purchase items or
abilities that allow the player to earn currency faster or automatically, without needing to perform the initial action. A common theme is offering the player sources of income displayed as buildings such as
factories or farms. These sources increase the currency production rate, but higher tier sources usually have an exponentially higher cost, so upgrading between tiers takes usually about the same time or even increasingly longer.
Clicker games gained popularity in 2013 after the success of Cookie Clicker, although earlier games such as Cow Clicker and Candy Box! were based on the same principles. In 2015, the gaming press observed such games proliferating on
the Steam game distribution platform with titles such as Clicker Heroes.
