Ditto the Monster looks at the world of family friendly online games from a Fabricated American perspective

So Carl got me hooked on EverClicker… 

Apparently, while I was ‘gone’, KingsIsle came out with a new mobile game called EverClicker.  It’s like a clicky kind of RPG with an exciting story (defeat the evil Star Devourer, oohhhh) and pretty fun play mechanic, clicking to defeat bad guys and upgrading your ‘team’ to deal more and more damage as the enemies get bigger and tougher, culminating in a pretty big boss fight every 5 levels.   

 

It’s as simple as that, but it can be pretty complex too – there are multiple ways to upgrade your team, both temporarily with spells or special abilities, as well as permanently by summoning spirits or upgrading your feast hall! Gaining gold by defeating enemies or capturing what I’ve started to call ‘gold bugs’ that randomly fly across the screen seems to be the primary currency, and there are red gems that do… something? They seem to allow to reduce timers or purchase upgrade kits for your team, but not too much else? 

Finally, there’s my favorite part of the game – time gates.  They’re kind of like raids, I guess? You get pulled into some kind of alternate dimension and have to help a team defeat a bunch of bad guys as fast as you can, because the magic key can only blip you to the other dimension for like 30 seconds. I think it’s that timer and the friendly competition with other players that makes it so fun.  

So there you have it – I know I’m late to the party on this and I’m probably missing a ton, but I’m really enjoying this game! It’s such fun, and like I said; very easy to play, but challenging if you like to maximize your effectiveness.  

Do you play? How do you like it?  Let me know any tips or tricks you might have, I’d love to hear from you!
