Idle Games

What are idle games? 

Idle games, also known as incremental games and clicker games have players perform simple actions like tapping or swiping to earn currency. Often times, idle games don’t even require any action from the player to generate in-game currency, hence the name “idle games.” 

The challenge for players is to optimize the use of currency to unlock new content in a game, such as new buildings or special abilities. Players are incentivized to perform simple actions in order to generate more in-game currency, but a majority of the currency will be generated while players are away from the game. 

Idle games are usually classified under the hyper-casual and casual genres because they are easy to play, yet require a certain amount of strategy from players to optimize resources to continuously earn more.
