It’s a golden age for idle games on the mobile market, and those addictive little clickers have a new best friend. South Korean developer Ekkorr released Endless Frontier last year, and players have been idling away the hours in the company of its heroes ever since.
It all starts with our hero Erin, who has vowed to defeat the Prince of Darkness, even if he has to die a million times in the process. Reincarnation is a beautiful thing…
You’re in charge of a band of fighters as they work through stages of enemies, each incrementally more difficult with the occasional boss thrown in. There are an impressive 1,500 stages, so this isn’t really a game you should aim to complete any time soon (the clue is in the name).
There are over a hundred heroes you can use in your cohort, from four different character types – humans, elves, orcs and the undead. The more you play and the higher your level, the more powerful the units available to you, and the further you can progress. Later on, you’ll even be able to farm pets to add offensive and defensive skills to your army.
Ekkorr consciously dispensed with the Gacha system, so you won’t be gambling away your hard earned resources or IRL cash for a tiny chance at unlocking some kind of legendary weapon or unit. Everything’s about upgrading existing units, instead, simplifying the RPG element of the game.
Endless Frontier also offers the chance to play one-on-one PvP, join guilds and battle with rival guilds in raids. Most idle games don’t worry too much about competition or the social aspect of online play, whereas Endless Frontier gives you the chance to make allies and challenge your heroes beyond the standard stages.
