One of the many idle games that I have on my phone is a game known as Idle Frontier. The first thing that attracted me to the game was cute illustrations. It looks a bit like the types of books that I would have read when I was younger. Idle games are kind of my thing. I like being able to just to due a couple of things for a bit of time, come back a couple of hours later, and be further in the game. It’s the standard idle game with achievements that gives you extra bonuses. My one problem with this game is that there is this loot box system. You have a random chance of getting manager cards of which is needed to automate everything for when you are away. As you get farther in the game, you have to level up these managers, which is by random chance. I’m okay with putting in the work first hand, but later on, I just want to let the game work itself. Overall, the game is okay. I think that if you enjoy constantly putting in the work overtime, go ahead. I’m pretty neutral overall.
Alright, so I promise this will be the last idle game that I talk about for a while. This one is called Idle Bouncer and it’s free on Steam (I hope you’re seeing a pattern here.). Unlike the Loading Screen Simulator, every reset gets you further into the game. As my main problem with that game, it was nice that that wasn’t the case with this one. The basis of the game is bouncing balls in these columns to generate energy. Using the energy generated, you improve the entire system and get as far as you can without it getting tedious, and then restarting once again. I absolutely loved this, the first time I opened the game, I had it open for about three hours, I want to say before I closed it and do what an idle game does best. I would recommend this game to anyone who loves idle games as much as I do.
Another one of the idle games that are constantly being opened on my computer is AdVenture Communist, the “sequel” to AdVenture Capitalist. AdVenture Communist is a whole different beast than it’s Capitalist counterpart. Instead of just needing to make sure that you have enough money to purchase a business, you have to have enough supplies in order to purchase an upgrade. There is also a trickle-down effect in which the higher level purchases affect the lower level purchases. This game is honestly a balancing act. If you purchase things too fast, you’re screwed; if you purchase upgrades too slow, it’s going to take you a while to really get started. My head still gets confused as to what I’m trying to do, neither the less. I would definitely suggest getting this game if you are obsessed with idle games as much as I am. It’s free!
I make it no secret that I love idle games. I don’t know what it’s about, but putting in a whole bunch of work so that I can just sit there later. The newest thing that I’ve played has been Loading Screen Simulator. It’s a cute little parody simulator about slow loading times. It was a cute, short little game. My one problem in the game has to do with the reset. Usually, with resets in idle games, the early game gets easier so that you can progress farther in the game. The simulator does not have that; when you get to the end, it’s the exact same gameplay occurring. It was cute for an hour, but then I just had to put it down. It was great to get some achievements on Steam from a free game, but other than that… I honestly would tell you not to waste your time with this game unless you just love getting some achievements.
One of the many recent games that I have downloaded on my phone has Pet Rescue. What can I say about it other than it is super adorable? The animal and character designs are well done. The simple animations are absolutely perfect. The premise of the game is that you are running a vet clinic with different services that you can upgrade your care for animals and help out missing animals. The first part is more time management and the second is waiting for a time to expire. There are also three worlds currently available as I am writing this. I have only played in two of them. The different worlds have different services you can offer and different animals to rescue. My one complaint is that the vets don’t get different outfits for the different world. I know that it is a silly complaint, but I just think it would be really cute.
You can get that game for Android and a bunch of random platforms from I saw.
