Summary
Cookie Clicker is simultaneously one of the most addictive and one of the most pointless games around. Your role is exactly as the title suggests; you are the cookie clicker.

Review
Cookie Clicker was released onto the world in August 2013. Within about 10 days there were about 200,000 online players. The premises of the game is incredibly simple: you have to click the cookie; each time you click it you 'bake' one cookie.

Of course there's a lot more to it to that. As well as just clicking cookies there are different upgrades and buildings that increase your CPS (cookies per second). Buy extra clickers, get some grandmas to bake cookies in their ovens, or get a few antimatter condensers to turn antimatter into cookies. Upgrades mean your buildings will produce more cookies. By buying upgrades and buildings you can also unlock special achievements.

Sit in front of the game clicking to earn extra cookies and catch bonus gold cookies before they disappear, or just leave the game running in the background to build up your cookies while you get on with other things. The game can either take all of your time, or next to none of it.

The game could be incredibly dull, but a lot of the appeal comes from the humour. It reminds me of games like Theme Hospital and early Maxis games that would have bogus news stories and ridiculous plots built into the story. In Cookie Clicker you're baking for a cookie-mad world, but things get a little crazy when the Grandmas start changing and taking over.

You can play Cookie Clicker on any computer connected to the internet, on any browser. It does work on most mobile devices, but rapid clicking may not work well and tends to zoom in and out on iPads and iPhones.

There are a few upgrades supposedly in the works which could add to the Cookie Clicker gameplay, but for now it's fun to just keep clicking.
