Insanity Clicker on Steam

MSRP: Free with in-game purchases

Platforms: Windows

Release: 6/7/16


I’m the first to admit that I don’t really get the allure of clicker games.  In fact, my only previous experience with the genre was when Steam added a clicker game into one of its big sales, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I clicked the hell out of some monsters then.  That said, I just don’t think they have much staying power, but these types of games are getting more and more common.

Insanity Clicker bills itself as a “terrifying survival simulator of an abandoned hospital with elements of horror” but – spoiler alert – there doesn’t seem to be any way for you to do things like take damage or die, so I’m not really sure where the survival sim comes in.

Ok, it’s gory.  When you click on a monster, you get completely unrealistic blood spatter as well as damage numbers.   The art of the monsters is actually pretty good, but you can hardly see them through all the red spots on your screen.  The currency you get is teeth, which is kind of gross, actually, and fitting for a horror themed game.

But there’s not much here. Yes, you can idle it.  Yes, you can use teeth to upgrade your hero. Yes, you can even dump money into this game.

Also, apparently, you’re doing all this fighting pretty much naked. I’m not sure if clothing is something you have to pay real money for.

Other than the graphics (which I really wish were part of a game with actual content), there’s nothing here for me.  There might be niche audience of folks who like both clicker games and gore, but I’d be surprise if this make much money at all for the developers.
