It’s good, I’m just confused

Honestly. It’s really fun for a game where you don’t do anything.
This and the fact I’ve had to reset the game multiple times just because I thought I had failed, but that’s probably mostly my fault, there isn’t really a tutorial or an explanation for everything and it’s quite minimalistic, while at the same time giving you so much information you learn quickly.

Currently in the battle part so I think stage… 3? Been stuck on it for a few days

Anyway good game from a cool concept 4/5 stars. 1 denounced because of general confusion


Highly addictive

Even though the numbers pause when you are out of the app, somehow I couldn’t help but keep monitoring them… and then I realised hours and hours had passed.
Great game, and funny, but very easy to lose yourself in as you strive for faster completion times and new artifacts!

Just like the original… but with added replay

The same bits from the browser original, but with added replay with the alien artifacts.

If you’ve never played Paperclips before it’s all a bit odd. If Google doesn’t help you just try and see what happens.
