Varagtp's Tap Heroes is a simple idle/incremental RPG that will feel fairly familiar to you if you've played Clicker Heroes. You start off with a simple warrior in a forest, and you click on them to heal, while clicking on enemies deals damage. Slain enemies drop coins you can use to upgrade both your clicking strengths and your party, and after you've knocked off ten monsters in one area, you can move on to the next, where they'll be stronger, but your rewards will be even greater. Every so often you'll fight a powerful boss, and slaying it will earn you diamonds that are also dropped randomly while playing and which you can spend on more party members or other upgrades like the coin doubler. If you're already sick of the clicker genre, Tap Heroes isn't going to do much to win you over. It's fun in the way all of these games are, a frenetic mix of arcade clickery and the simple satisfaction of upgrading and bigger numbers, but despite elements like the way the wizard and the rogue both have different abilities, it still doesn't offer much in the way of depth. The incentive to play is largely seeing what new areas and monsters you discover, and in that the game's lovely Paper Mario-esque retro visual style is a large mark in its favour. Tap Heroes may have been done before, and likely could use some fleshing out to make it stand above the crowd, but its oddly addictive and easy on the eyes, making it a solid addition to an increasingly popular genre.

The idea is that, you can play along by tapping the left or right side of the screen, which will definitely get you more coins, gems, and experience points. Or, you can simply watch as a bystander and see how your heroes manage on their own. The level of participation is dependent on you.
The landscape two-dimensional screen looks like a cut-and-paste puppet show. The heroes and monsters appear to be sitting on top of sticks. The surrounding frame could be the window of a puppet theater booth.

Your heroes and their stats are displayed at the bottom of the screen, along with their current level and the cost to upgrade each stat. The achievements section, which is the main reason to play the game, is accessed by tapping the tab on the right side of the screen. Your game stats are available from the tab right below the achievements.
As I mentioned above, your level of game play could amount to zero, if that is your preference. However, if you want to participate in the game, tap the right side of the screen to attack and tap the left side of the screen to heal. If you do nothing, your heroes will perform both actions on their own, but not as fast.
As you earn coins, use them to purchase upgrades for your heroes and powers. The higher your level, the faster you can defeat your enemy. You can also earn gems, which are used to buy special powers, like the Great Tide. Once purchased, these powers can be manually activated at any time, but have a lengthy cool down duration.
The key to earning more gems, which are rare in this game, is to earn achievements. The first couple of achievements in a category will only earn you coins, but once you make it to the harder tasks, you’ll begin earning gems instead. For example, you will earn a gem for defeating 10,000 enemies, or tapping the screen 50,000 times. So, while the game may continue without your interaction, it behooves you to participate so you can earn gems.

There is both a free version and a paid version of Tap Heroes. The only difference is that the paid version comes with the Familiar Pet, which you could get from the free version with gems. The replay value is definitely high since you can play through at least 100 locations. You don’t even have to play. Just watching the heroes fight is good enough.

Tap Heroes is such an easy game that it can literally play itself once you get a mage in your party to heal the warrior. At first you start off with a warrior that will auto attack the enemy, but if you want to vanquish it faster, click on it lots of times. I mean lots. No. More clicks, keep on clicking. If you're low on health, all you need to do is click on yourself until the health bar is full. There doesn't seem to be any cost to healing yourself, but the only downfall to healing is that you're not attacking the enemy as fast, or at all, unless you have the rogue in your party.
The rogue shoots arrows that stun and poison foes. With gold coins dropped from defeated monsters like bees, bats, tigers, pigs, and Venus fly traps, you can upgrade his speed and potency. Each upgrade will cost more than the previous one so keep on saving your gold and spend your money wisely between all of the party members.

The healing mage is the first un-lockable character that you can purchase with gems dropped by bosses or found in random treasure chests. Gems can also unlock temporary boosts that can recharge over time including the ability to do double damage, earn more gold, summon a tide to wash away an enemy, or heal twice as much. In the extras shop, potions, banks for dropping more gold, and an attacking familiar can also be purchased with gems. Last but not least, gems can be placed on an altar to upgrade abilities.
As you progress through the three hundred levels (if your fingers can take it), the enemies get stronger and take more effort to knock out. Each level has ten monsters that have to be defeated to manually switch to the next level. Moving forward is optional and you can let the game play itself if your warrior can hold his own and the mage heals him enough. Every tenth level has a boss and these battles will require constant healing to survive their powerful attacks.
If your characters are leveled up enough, it doesn't take much skill to keep pressing forward. The only limitation is how much clicking can you stand doing before getting bored or having your fingers get tired. This game seriously numbed my fingers as I played it and I don't recommend it for anyone suffering from carpal tunnel. Even though Tap Heroes is kid safe, mine got bored with it after a few minutes. The asking price is only $2.99, but I'd wait for a sale before picking it up.

Conclusion:
I never thought I'd ever play a clicker game, but when I noticed several of my Steam friends playing one over the summer, not just once or twice, but day after day, (the free to play Insanity clicker) I was curious so installed the game and started playing it. I ended up with over 700 hours of game play, though a lot of it was played using one of those auto clickers. Tap heroes is a similar clicker game in that it can become very addicting initially, tohugh i found this particular game not as riveting as Insanity clicker, but that could be the fact that once you've played one, there's not much else to see a smost of these clicker games are basically the same, just with a different graphic. I have noticed a few of my friends are now off Insanity clickerand playing another free to play clicker game called Clicker Heroes. Once you've had enought of Tap Heroes I suggest you try both Insanity clickerand Clicker Heroes as neither will cost you a penny.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the developer varagtp for giving away keys for this Clicker game and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games, in this case a Steam key.

The following information was taken from the previous time this was given away. Problems with duplicate keys or completing tasks, please contact the giveaway team HERE, and/or also the developer. Take a screen capture of the message you get either after completing all the tasks and/or when trying to activate the game on Steam, so that you have proof of the issue. The developers email can be found at the bottom of the developers web site HERE. I cannot guarantee a key would be given, but it's worth a try. The developer has given away keys previously and seems a decent guy

Apparently my FB and Steam accounts ended up in two different names I don't know why. I am using this mail address (which is hidden in the comment) with the facebook account (name Louis) and my steam name is Sheogorath also. But I can't enter as it switches between everytime I try to do tasks. So can you remove the account with FB on it so that I can link it to my Steam account (name Sheogorath).
