I've brushed over this multiple times, dismissing it as a mobile game. That was a mistake! Although I initially found it hard to get into, they've since added a tutorial to explain basic mechanics - and if you can get over the UI being a bit unintuitive, there's a great game to be found underneath. The term "Idle" does it a disservice I think - it's actually quite a deep game with lots of interconnecting systems, and very satisfying whether you're playing actively, or a few minutes a day. It's not "incremental" where progress is exponential; they get boring quickly. At it's core - you are an MMO character gaining skills and resources, but the interface is just the UI.
