Tap Heroes Review Cons:

  • No actual tutorial.
  • The game doesn’t play or the music I should say doesn’t play in the background.
  • There is no way to resize the game window yourself, it’s small or full screen only.
  • It is a lot slower to get going than other games in the series.
  • Not a lot of the in-game mechanics or systems get explained to you.
  • A very cluttered UI.
  • Newly recruited characters are not levelled the same as you so you have to waste tons of coins bringing them up to your current level.
  • It’s just not as engaging as previous titles.
  • I got tired of it before it could show everything.

Tap Heroes boast chunky pixel art graphics, which evoke a sense of nostalgia. Additionally, players can earn Steam achievements, adding to the overall sense of accomplishment. The idle clicker gameplay allows the game to continue generating income even when it’s not actively played. You’ll find a full stats screen, and both your character and the clicker icon have their own sets of upgrades that you can spend coins on. The ability to recruit new characters to your party, each with their own upgrades, adds depth to the gameplay. Big boss fights and the automatic collection of coins over time enhance the experience.

Unfortunately, Tap Heroes has its share of downsides. The lack of an actual tutorial means that many in-game mechanics and systems remain unexplained. The cluttered user interface can be overwhelming, and newly recruited characters start at different levels, requiring players to spend coins to bring them up to speed. The game’s pacing is slower compared to other titles in the series, and the music doesn’t play in the background. Additionally, the inability to resize the game window manually (it’s either small or full screen) can be frustrating.

Overall, While Tap Heroes offers some engaging features, it falls short in certain areas. Despite its potential, it lacks the same level of engagement as previous titles, and some players may tire of it before fully exploring all its aspects. I just couldn’t get on with it and it’s a huge bummer seems I really like their other games.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
