I Left Clicker Heroes Running All Night And Here’s What Happened

I Left Clicker Heroes Running All Night And Here’s What Happened

What you’re witnessing is monsters dying as fast as they’re spawning. I couldn’t even click them.

For the uninitiated, Clicker Heroes is a massively popular Steam game that nearly plays itself. Monsters appear on screen, and then you click them until they die. Or they die on their own, more quickly depending on your total DPS (which you can continually improve by spending gold).

I left my game running overnight, and when I came back I had so much gold that Scrooge McDuck would have drowned in it. So I spent it all, but I never left the stage I’d been on that whole time. As a result, my “heroes” were all massively over-leveled. Merely existing in my presence proved fatally corrosive to all monsters. It was like they’d seen the face of god, only with less melting and more money pinata explosions.

To increase your enjoyment of that little slice of absurdity, I recommend pairing the above GIF with this song:


  • lel, level 21
    I guess it’s those little things you take for granted, or forget about when your monsters take like 5 minutes to die on their own.

    I should ascend again one of these days

    oh yeah, and unlike Cookie Clicker, you don’t need to leave it running. Clicker Heroes is sweet in that you get gold when you don’t have it open.

      • there are random events like ruby drops, and occasionally I’ve seen what looks like a rabbit in an easter egg hat move across the top of the screen. Clicking on it a number of times will “kill” it and reward you with something

  • ARGH – See what you made me do? Now I’ve gone and installed it – and I’ll be playing it for the next month until I get the perfect idle build going and can leave it

  • I’m not sure if I should recommend it, but for a similar Android/iPhone game check out Tap Titans. A simple time waster for some, an addictive slippery slope for others. Then there’s those who starts it up and gets bored in 5 minutes flat 🙂

  • When I was first about to try this, I thought “how stupid”… but from the moment I started clicking, I found that I could not stop. This was last year, and I managed to pull out before 5 days had past, thank god.

  • This is now officially the most played game in my list on Steam. That is disgusting.
