You’ll lose hours to this incredibly hard rogue-like – or win with just one click

Forget Candy Box. Never mind Cookie Clicker. Today’s life-eating Internet time-waster is the most simple, addictive and frustrating rogue-like ever hosted in a browser.


As long as you con’t have anywhere to be right now, fire up Shimage‘s One Tap Quest in your browser and prepare to be challenged.

The premise is simple. Your hero travels upwards along the field, beginning wherever you click along a horizontal starting plane. Enemies wander ponderously back and forth across their path.

If your hero hits an enemy weaker than themselves, they earn XP and grow more powerful. If they hit something stronger, they die. Along the way there are various pieces of equipment, allies and teleports to be exploited. The goal is to reach the final room defeat the big baddie.

Sounds simple, right? Yep. But if you win, boy, you’ll want to take a screenshot, because this is not an easy game. Now excuse me, I have monsters to fight.

Thanks (?), Alan.

    Beat it too. “Hours” is a horrible exaggeration.

    Genius design.
    Can’t believe how fun it was (Albeit short). Hopefully they make a follow-up with multiple levels (With tap / input options at start of each level so something like the final wizard could be normal / water enemy of level 2 and so forth).

    Also, thank you Brenna. Really nice find.
