Cookie Clicker released on the PSVita – More time wasting opportunities just in!
As more time goes by, the PSVita keeps on getting more ‘important’ homebrew games from Vita Doom to Tetromino. Now, thanks to ‘Creckeryop’, we also have Cookie Clicker which, in my opinion, is one of the best games to use the touchscreen with!
What is Cookie Clicker?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know what cookie clicker is. It was originally released in 2013 to play on browsers and probably wasted countless hours of many people. In the game, you click the cookie and buy buildings that click the cookie automatically themselves! With cookies, you can buy buildings that produce more and more cookies per second thus making Cookie Clicker into somewhat of an addictive game even though it doesn’t have much of a goal, especially in the Vita version.
In the full browser version, you can buy upgrades, anger grandmas and do all sorts of other crazy stuff but for now, the Vita version is a little limited although still fun!
Currently the Vita version (which is at v0.1) has the following features:
- Ability to save the game. Save files are in ux0:/data/.
- Touchscreen controls for everything so now the touchscreen is more useful!
- All buildings up to Prism. That means you have every building except the Chancemaker.
- Ability to buy and sell in bulk (10/100).
- A design that’s quite faithful to the browser version.
The homebrew is written in Lua and interpreted by Lua Player Plus (by Rinnegatamante) so you could easily fiddle around with the code if you want to add something yourself.
How do I get it?
To get this homebrew game, you can download it directly off VHBB (since it’s on VitaDB) or through the links below. If you have any issues, report them to Creckeryop on the GBATemp thread or GitHub link below! This is a v0.1 release so bugs are bound to be present!
