If you don't already like clickers, there's nothing here to change your mind.

If you do like clickers, it's a mixed bag. It's flashy and polished, but it's also monitized to the max. Seriously, it's insane. Right away there's a 'starter pack' for $19.99(!). Then there's gems to buy, ads for gems, tap joy for gems, and even a freaking rewards VIP program that gives you bonuses based on how much real money you spend, similar to a casino rewards program. The game asks you to buy something or watch an ad every few seconds.

A clicker with a real money 'rewards' program. Yep. This is one of the most shamelessly aggressive IAP riddled messes I've ever seen.

Yeah, it's rather amusing how it's basically a "who's who guide to Freemium Traps." Every money-making gimmick ever conceived in the last five years found its way into this one in some form.

Even things like the "2x profits for 4 hours," typically renewed by watching an advertisement in games like Adventure Capitalist, require GEMS to recharge here. As well as the VIP program for buying gems - which if I understand it correctly EXPIRES regardless of your 'VIP level' unless you keep buying MORE gems every week. Heh.

But at the same time, the 'game within the game' is finding the best way to proceed WITHOUT spending a dime. Which is easy enough to do, but even then, if it's been too long since you've triggered an advertisement the game will randomly hit you with an unprompted one without any reward attached to it. :|

I WANT to like it, but it's going out of its way to make it difficult. Especially when the 'tap area' is such a small zone on the screen.
