Tap Adventure, I call these types of games tap-a-thons for mobile platforms. The goal is simple, whenever you tap, you deal damage, and... that's all you need to know.
With each tap, you do damage to the enemies on the screen at the time, when they die, you get coins which you are use to either upgrade your own damage, recruit new minions, or upgrade your minions. You do this until, well, the end, which I haven't reached yet.
Each minion that you recruit will attack automatically on its own and you can upgrade their attack and life. Upgrades cost coins and each upgrade increases all subsequent upgrade cost. The upgrades give your recruits abilities that are passive as well as some that are active (one per recruit) which you can active while in combat, they range from attacks to heal spells. Each of these active abilities will have a timer, so that it restricts how often you can use them.
As a bonus, while you are away from the game, coins are collected on your behalf, so you can leave the game for awhile and come back and collect a lot of coins for upgrades. The ads in this game are not intrusive and don't happen that often. The ads themselves are usually links to games that Kongregate released, so I have no issues with them. In-app purchases are present, but unnecessary in my opinion and don't really add much to the game.
Come back next Wednesday for my Final Thoughts on Kingdom Rush for Android.
