Almost a Hero – RPG Clicker Game Guide & Strategy

Almost A Hero is an RPG style Clicker/Idle game that’s a lot heavier on the RPG than most idle games. You lead a team of up to 5 (almost) heroes who have major flaws but interesting gameplay mechanics as you try to raise them from an unruly crowd of useless idiots to the real heroes every game needs.

I’ve had a ton of fun with this one so I wanted to start a guide even though Almost A Hero is quite complex, so it’s definitely a work in progress! If you have any questions or info to share please post them in the comments. There will be major updates to this guide in the coming days/weeks, see the Updates section to keep track of significant changes.

You can help me prioritize my updates by letting me know which sections/info you want to see first!

Dig Station Idle Clicker Game Guide & Walkthrough

Dig Station is a short but fun Idle/Clicker game that has a proper ending (unlike most) and almost no push for advertising and no IAP. It’s also got a lovely, grim atmosphere and fittingly gritty pixel art. You’ll likely be done with it in a few days at the very most, but it’s a fun break.

Note this guide is for App Version 8, there are many resources out there for older versions of the game.

In Dig Station you take the role of a small drilling drone sent to an alien planet. Falling deep into the ocean, you must drill up all the Resources you can to augment your production capacity and go on Adventures™!

Here you’ll find a brief walkthrough of the main mechanics and how to make the most of what the game gives you. As always, feel free to comment with any questions!

Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium Striped Marlin / Visiting Fish Guide

Update 2018-07-06: As of the 2nd Anniversary Event update, it appears the “visiting” fish like the Marlin have a vastly increased appearance rate. Hopefully they should no longer be an issue.

More than any other fish the Striped Marlin in Tap Tap Fish: Abyssrium has driven fans (and by extension, me) insane. So I decided hey, just make a single, extremely direct post to gather all the information into one place. If you’re looking for info on Hidden Fish in general, or any other game info, see my complete AbyssRium Guide.

tl;dr: There is absolutely nothing you can do to increase your chance of seeing the marlin (other than own the star horn coral which is required).

Since the early days, the following fish were added, all of which work completely identically to the Marlin and are unlocked in a possibly random sequence:

  • Striped Marlin
  • Bonito
  • Wahoo
  • Yellow Fin Tuna
  • Blue Fin Tuna

Potion Maker Events

Potion Maker has Events that happen about twice a month and have special Requests, as well as unique conditions to earn up to two special outfits for one of the characters.

Generally events cycle so there’s one event for Pio outfits then one for Tia outfits. The Event Requests can be completed with any NPC quest-giving character with equal success rate regardless of NPC level, and should be considered a very high priority as they unlock extremely good rewards, such as tons of Likeability and event-exclusive fairies. Try to take on every request you possibly can.

If the event says “fulfill request X times” you need to wait for an NPC to come with a Quest (not a Challenge Quest with a crown), then tap their icon, then tap Requests. The event request should be at the very top and say Limited on it. Tap that request and then confirm the request. They usually take 7 hours to complete but have a 100% chance of success, so there’s a very tight window if you want to get all 30 requests done in the 15 day window of most events; that’s two per day, and you can barely squeeze in 3 a day if you miss any.
