Clicker Heroes is probably the most popular idle clicker game, which you can play actively by clicking (which we don't recommend for the sake of your fingers' health) or by taking a few actions and going idle and coming back to it from time to time. The purpose of the game is simple, though progressing may not be as simple as it might look. You click and slay monsters and proceed to the next level after slaying 10 monsters. At every 5th level, there is a boss encounter which is considerably harder than the other monsters in between. When you unlock a certain skill of one of your heroes, you can reset the world and re-start with improved power (which is the nature of idle games).

Clicker Heroes has a lot depth to it and new features are continuously being added at each new major update. There are dozens of heroes to level up, hundreds of upgrades to perform, many achievements to unlock, items to find and also you can form guilds with other players and join raids.

10. GemCraft

10 Addicting Free Browser Games to Play When You're Bored - 10

I left my favorite online browser game ever to the last. It is actually a series of four games and it is called GemCraft. GemCraft is a revolutionary tower defense game, that once you play, every other tower defense games will look like child's play. You can play all four games starting with the first one GemCraft, continuing with the second in the series, GemCraft Chapter 0, the third one GemCraft Labyrinth and the last one GemCraft Chasing Shadows, which in my opinion is also the best GemCraft game.

GemCraft takes the standard tower defense game and brings it to a whole new level. You build towers and defenses as usual, but you create and upgrade gems of various colors to be placed in towers, all providing different set of bonuses. You can upgrade, combine and destroy gems, drop them as gem bombs, earn skill points and gain levels, improve your passive bonuses, beat dozens of maps on multiple difficulties and test your skills on the survival mode.

If you are a tower defense games fan and haven't played GemCraft yet, you will most probably regret not trying this masterpiece before.
