Progress Quest remains the best cure (or drug) for gamers who don’t have time to play games anymore. But if you have a minute to play, One Tap Quest might be the game for you. The anti-thesis of Cow Clicker, Cookie Clicker and other idle games, One Tap Quest requires you to click exactly once for the entire game.
Made by Japanese developer Shimage, One Tap Quest is a combination of Frogger and Half-Minute Hero, compressing the progression and grinding of RPGs into a hilariously concise package. The hero starts out at the bottom of the screen, and all you need to do is pick a spot on the map and click on it. The hero will then trudge upwards, pushing through as stubbornly as a zombie lemming. He either dies or defeats monsters according to a very basic RPG trope. You’ll figure it out.
You’re still here? Fine, here’s a gameplay video shared by Stefan Zeiske:
A very brief and slightly interactive adventure awaits! Go to Shimage to play One Tap Quest. If you’re stuck, check out Redditor Dream721’s tips. Those tips practically spoil the game though, so read them at your own risk.
