There’s been a prevalence of one-tap RPGs, and RPG Clicker is one of the more recent entries. It’s a lot like all the others, albeit with a slightly more involved equipment system, but you’ll still find yourself drawn in against your better judgement.
You tap on the screen in order to inflict damage upon your enemies. Keep at it and eventually they die, you gain a bit of experience, and the process repeats all over again. Every now and then, you come across a treasure chest which offers up a handy piece of equipment to boost your abilities. You also earn gold for every kill. This gold can be used to upgrade your abilities, your weapon, spells, and also unlock new areas.
It’s gripping even though it really shouldn’t be. It’s all too easy to lose a lot of time to RPG Clicker, but you’ll secretly know you could be doing something more worthwhile elsewhere. Taking the RPG genre back to its most basic of elements is a strange way to entice a player, but these games manage it well. Just treat it like fast food: It won’t sustain you in the long term but you’ll enjoy it while it’s there.
