I was expecting skill but it's just a clicker game

Was really disappointed with this game. I thought it was going to be using logic puzzles or premade quotes or something, instead I just get another boring clicker game.

I realy love idle games but that one is carp cuz of the fire water earth circle -.-

The upgrades get a bit few and far between around the billion dollar mark. The fact that you have to upgrade 9 items simultaneously to have much chance against any random opponent really hurts, too. Then there's the really odd "buying one thing makes everything more expensive" bit. I'm guessing this is all length padding, but it gets a little weird that I can leave my character arguing with, say, Dick Lotto for an hour, win 75% of the matches, and not be able to upgrade anything after that. And it's not that I've been ignoring autoclick or money upgrades either.

On the other hand, the story's exactly as much as you need for an idle game, and the art's perfect. The music fits in well and, for when a loop inevitably gets irritating, the mute buttons are nicely obvious.

Thanks for playing and for the balanced feedback stuff123321! I just need to say that "buying one thing makes everything more expensive" was not motivated by length padding (we could have easily doubled the enemies list) but by a desire to keep each new match challenging/thrilling. In this game we tried to add some strategic thinking to your usual idle game and the above is one of the consequences - so you need to find which combination of upgrades is optimal, and if you find them (there are several) your progress should be more or less constant. We provided a reset button to allow for experimentation without penalizing the players. Give it another shot, have a great day!

.......I really don't know what to say.
It's a boring game i'm sorry. i played it hoping you can do something else but it seems like all you do is upgrade and talk and upgrade since well you are trying to be the best debater ever.
I'm sorry. if this offends you forgive me and i understand but it is boring. it's challenging since it gets harder and harder and as well there is more items in the game not only that but there is also more upgrades yet it take a long time o upgrade those and then i got bored
i uh well that's all i guess. keep it up though. looking forward to your future games.

Thanks for keeping your word and being brutally honest Silver-wolf123 haha! I guess you are not a fan of idle games? That is alright. Thanks though for noticing the challenging part. Yeah, if you give it a chance, the main puzzle here is to find a combination of upgrades so you reach top. If you do things right, and there are several ways to do it, you should be able to beat the game in just 63 wins! Cheers!
