What is Cookie Clicker?
For those who don’t know Cookie Clicker is a game about clicking and collecting cookies. That’s it. I consider it to be in the same sort of vain as many other Cow Clicker style games, but not quite as bad. It’s a simple nice waste of time and a good example of a HTML 5 Game that doesn’t use the canvas tag (at least not yet).
What do you do in it?
What’s Special About it?
For example typing: Game.cookies into the console will cause it to output the amount of cookies you currently have in the game.
And that’s just one thing you can find out, the source code is littered with values that would be useful or interesting for players to see.
I’ve actually written a small bot that can actually play the game just as well as I can. And I’d love to see others do the same to see how much better or different they can make things.
In fact that’s my challenge to those reading this; make a bot that can play Cookie Clicker.
Below is my bot (shared on github) for inspiration, bookmarklet is below, simply drag it to your favourites and click it when you are on the Cookie Clicker game to see it in action:
Sorry for the short and long delay between blog posts, will likely be more coming soon!
