Clicker Heroes

Last Updated on by Samuel Franklin

  • Endless gameplay – Play idle or be active – Unlock skills to help in battle
  • Limited graphics

Clicker Heroes lets you click or idle your way to victory in a simple browser based adventure that is packed full of features. If you’ve recently found yourself addicted to the sudden popularity of this genre and need a really deep browser experience this is one you shouldn’t miss.


Starting out with just the ability to tap monsters to death you’ll slowly generate a stockpile of coins which can be used to upgrade the strength of every click or go down a different path and hire heroes to fight for you and allow the idling to begin.

While your first hero (Cid, the Helpful Adventurer) will solely boost your clicking power future heroes such as Treebeast and the Beach Princess will passively deal damage to enemies on the screen and allow you to advance through the various game levels without any interaction at all. Once unlocked with coins you can also give them extra levels which will eventually unlock skills to give them an extra boost.

Players can also learn their own skills over time which come in handy for the bosses of the game that appear at the end of each level or the tougher bosses that are a level in themselves. These skills are all on a cooldown but provide powerful boosts from passive clicks to critical strikes and extra gold generation.


In case you didn’t have enough fun the first time playing the game you’ll find an ascension mechanic that lets you get a fresh soft start the game where your heroes are returned to level 0. The benefit of this is the hero souls you’ll be given based on your progress which allows you to access powerful ancients to help you make it further in your next Clicker Heroes adventure.

With hundreds of achievements and a game that can truly last forever there aren’t many other browser based idle click games that can match Clicker Heroes.


  • A deeply satisfying mixture of idle and click based gameplay.
  • Ascend to gain hero souls for powerful ancients.
  • Recruit dozens of heroes that unlock a variety of active skills for you to use.
  • Advance through levels and defeat all sorts of bosses.
  • Play Clicker Heroes for free in your browser.
