Clicker Heroes Review: “Almost annoyingly addictive”

It sounds like nothing anyone would ever want to play, but once you start it’s incredibly tough to stop. I’m talking about Clicker Heroes, an idle tapping game 148Apps enjoyed quite a bit. From the 4 star review:

Essentially, Clicker Heroes is a game that plays itself and yet you’ll find yourself checking in so often. As you keep playing, new things unlock. You’ll find yourself able to join clan and participate in multiplayer battles, but it’ll take you a while to get that far. Clicker Heroes trickle feeds such content though so you’ll soon end up under its spell.

Dragon Quest V is On Sale for $9.99

For the first time since its iOS release, Dragon Quest 5 has gone on sale for $9.99, down from $14.99. It’s a game anyone interested in RPGs should play, but don’t take my word for it. From Touch Arcade:

Dragon Quest 5 is regarded by many series fans, including myself, to be the peak of the franchise. It tells a touching story of one person’s life, from childhood all the way through parenthood. It doesn’t just lean on its story, however. The game also introduced monster-catching mechanics, allowing you to fill out your party with the enemies you meet along the way. In most other regards, it’s a fairly typical Dragon Quest game, meaning it’s a whole lot of JRPG comfort food. If you want more information on the game, please check out my review. It’s one of my very favorite RPGs of all-time.
