Let me begin with the basics. Clicker Games, also known as ‘idle games’ or ‘incremental games’, have common and very simple principle. You perform an action, you get rewarded. The more accurate/fast is the action, the more is the reward.
In most of these games, this action is ‘click’ or ‘pressing a button’ that’s why the name is Clicker Games.
Recently, it has emerged as a popular game genre with so many interesting clicking games being released or added into famous games as mini levels to gain extra rewards.
Quick Fact: The first clicker game, Cow Clicker, was created by Ian Bogost to demonstrate how boring would “free games” be. But, ironically, he gave birth to one of the most addictive genre of games.
In this article, I am going to give you 10 most popular and free clicker games that you can play online.
Remember, to play these games, you must have superfast clicking skills. If you’re not sure about it, click speed test to see how fast can you click.
