Clicker Heroes Logo

Clicker Heroes is an idle game made by Playsaurus, the developers of "Cloudstone", a popular MMORPG. Some features include an Export/Import feature, mute, an option for lower quality, manual and auto saving, offline farming, hard reset (deleting your save), achievements, statistics, a skill bar, 50 heroes, and the ability to donate for perks.


General gameplay

The game has you kill monsters in order to advance in zones, reaching new monsters that get more HP as you make progress. These monsters can be killed by clicking on them, but you'll also get the option to hire heroes to do that for you. Those heroes aren't free; they cost Gold Gold, which is dropped by the monsters you've killed.

As the monsters get increasingly more HP, their Gold Gold that they drop after death also increases, but the latter has a slower formula than the first one. This makes it so that, the higher the zone you reach, the slower your progress becomes. This is where a special mechanic kicks in: Ascension. Ascension allows you to completely destroy your progress and start over, but with new permanent bonuses depending on how much progress the player has made before he/she ascended. These bonuses are referred to as Hero Souls, or HeroSoul Hero Souls. The type of bonus is up to you; Hero Souls are just the currency between the player and his/her bonus. While unspent, they provide a +10% damage bonus per HeroSoul Hero Souls, but they can be spent on Ancients if the player desires different bonuses. For a full list of bonuses, see below.

Eventually, the bonuses will start to decrease in value relatively, and the Ancient prices will keep getting higher and higher, rendering progress constantly slower. But don't fear; there are special super-Ascensions called Transcensions which destroy your HeroSoul Hero Souls and Ancients but in return, give you valuable Ancient Souls, which can be spent on Outsiders to give various bonuses that speed up your progress.

The ultimate goal of the game is to keep on reaching higher zones and killing stronger bosses. To do this at optimal speed, you should carefully consider when to ascend and when to transcend.

Extra stuff

Besides the general gameplay, Clicker Heroes has some extra stuff that can help you reach your goal faster.

We'll start with Relics, on the wiki often depicted as Relic Case Relic. These are little accesories that act like mini-Ancients, giving you small Ancient bonuses without paying for the respective Ancient. You gain a random Relic Case Relic once during every Ascension, up to 4 times. The 5th Relic Case Relic and all Relic Case Relic thereafter will end up in a Junk Pile and will be destroyed upon Ascension, unless you replace the Relic Case Relic with one of your current Relic Case Relic.

There is also an option to join a Clan. This is a group consisting of 1 to 10 players of the game who unite their powers once a day to defeat a collective enemy, called an Immortal. The difficulty of the Immortal depends on whether or not the Clan beat the Immortal of the previous day. If the Clan succeeds to kill an Immortal, everyone in the Clan will get an amount of HeroSoul Hero Souls based on their share of damage to the Immortal. To get immortal damage you must gain more hero souls.

A third thing the developers added, are Mercenaries. Mercenaries are little helpers that can be sent on quests to obtain certain bonuses, like additional Relic Case Relic or free HeroSoul Hero Souls. The more time a Mercenary has put into questing, the higher his/her level will become, and the higher the reward/quest time ratio. This bonus won't grow infinitely though; all Mercenaries have a limited lifespan, and will eventually die during a quest, to be replaced with new Mercenaries that start back at level 1. The bonuses are still very valuable though.

And if the things mentioned above aren't enough yet, there is also a Ruby Rubies Shop where you can spend Ruby Rubies, which have a chance to be obtained from Clickables that may appear randomly on your screen, on various bonuses. For a full list of things that can be bought in the Ruby Rubies Shop, see below.

Clicker Heroes Platforms

This section is intended for people who are planning to play Clicker Heroes, so they can decide which platform to play on.


The official website is always the first place to be updated, and you can use cloud saves if you like. Alternatively, you can play on Kongregate, or Armor Games. If you have a Kongregate account and you own Kreds, you can spend them on rubies in the Shop and you can watch adverts to earn rubies. (All other players can buy rubies directly with real money.) If you want a more kid-friendly website, you can play on Cool Math.


On Steam, the content is similar to that of the website, but there are additional features such as Auto Clicker skins.


On mobile, there are some disadvantages and some advantages:


Easier to play on the go (since Clicker Heroes requires attention)

Achievements, such as reaching a specified zone, give rubies, rather than just personal satisfaction


There are no Auto Clickers

Everything in the Ruby Shop costs 10 times as much, but the rewards are only 6-7 times the Web version.

Console (PS4 and Xbox One)

Console is not recommended because there are no clans and console updates have been discontinued.
