Shakes & Fidget is a fun game for me, a game where you can idle in and come back to once in a while or have it open in a window while playing another game. It's fun to create a guild with friends or try and gather certain stuff in the game.

I would recommend this game for lazy people like me

Although I have few hours in the Steam version, I have been playing this game for a few years in web browser, and I have to say that it's a nice game to play while you are working or doing other things, you just have to do a few things ingame every day to keep progressing, it feels rewarding and it still has a big community behind, it's very easy to find guilds with people who speak your language. The game itself looks simple at the beginning, but it gets deeper the more you level up so it keeps your interest over the time.

However, don't expect flashy graphics or any action gameplay in this game, it is what it is, an online management/rpg idle browser game to play a bit every day, if you know this and still want to try it, you wont be dissapointed.

P.S.: I recommend downloading the app for smartphones, it's useful for doing some missions while you're out of home ;)

This game is enjoyable to play inbetween games.
the longer you play the longer you have to wait untill a quest is done.
the game itself is fun, there's lots of humor in it and you don't need to pay to win.

while we're at it, feel free to join my guild if you're in world 9, we're the global defence tools!

I am giving this game a negative review because in the long run and in the end game it is not a free to play game in any way and if you want to enjoy it all the way be mentally prepared to spend more on this appealing cartoon cash grab then on a real game which would cost you 60$ or Eu and you would probably quit , at least stats show that... Mushroom is the game's currency and you need it basically for everything , even for making a guild and upgrading it (and you get usually 1-2-3 a day depending on mount and weather you take short or long quests which is just discouragingly little.

I can only talk about statistics. I am currently level 191 and in top 1k players on my server making me 0.20% of the World 6 pupulation and I haven't spent nearly the ammount of $$ comparing to the people that overrank me now. In W6 there are almost 400k players total and 200k (half of the server) are players from level 1 lvl 10 , and you can do that in 1 or two days I think (I can't remember how fast it was when I started but I was thrilled with the game because I saw potential). Half are of the server are bottom players who don't want to play the game. As for the top players , I've seen a lot of people who stopped playing the game and quitted different guilds or got kicked from inactivity after level 130 , 140 , 150 ... 170 , because it was too boring and the things that were interesting in the begening , well they were not so much fun later on , and the more you level up the slower it gets later on , exponentialy , even though there is no limit of the level...

My guild was 6th by strength and my GM is LVL 276 making him top 20 player. He now needs 3 days of play and 30 mushrooms to burn along with a dungeon raid (which at first gives you a whole new level by itself) just to gain one level , and in this game one level is nothing. And if you are really willing to play 10 mushrooms a day every day and it doesn't bore you to death , then why not spend 100$ on the largest package and slowly click away untill you need some more , just a few people do that , and those are the top players in W6. For me even when there are epic weekends after this time of play I get bored having to expend my quest charge and 10 mushrooms a day and then you get all sorts of bonuses and I was happy to do that for some time.

So you do the math. If you run out of potions , burn mushrooms to rotate the shop otherwise ppl grind your ladder , if you need more weapons and you are not getting the gear you need , again burn mushrooms and rotate more and you will get the desired equipment and sometimes you need a lot if you are not lukcy (normal rotation is 1 time a day), you can't defeat a Boss in a dungeon , spend 15 mushrooms on ethernal life elixir and you can level up to even 11 times in one day if you speed rush dungeons again with Mushrooms , if events are combined ,and beat the crap out of people in arena who don't have it , otherwise wait for days and days untill you can break a point where you are painfully stuck ...

There are so many people in this game who just come into the game , spend money and then they leave and so few people who really stick to the end , so I can freely say it's made as a pure cash grab that is fun (but not for the lower half of the server) but after some time it becomes more like a habbit and routine.

The way the game developres are uninterested to hear new ideas how to make the game better and more even for everyone (for example make a guild banks so you deposit musrhooms which you can't take back but you receive weekly interest , that way the difference between guys who spend a lot of money and the ones who spend little would be greatly lessened) and how they treat you like a semi-intelligent being also amazes me , where they tell you a story like you have a mind of a chineze gold farmer just that you grind and pay money here at the same time , is really amazing. The main defense of the developers is that you can get the the highest ranks without spending money by patience , which means play the game utterly slow for many years and , yeap you are there , and how many people do that ? Very very few ... I have shared my experience regarding the game , weather it worths playing to you is solely your decision and your preference.

Shakes and Fidget is a different game. This game mixes point and click with rpg and some kind of time progress quest (Yes, you have to wait for the time to finish a quest and start over). Although, it seems that is going to take forever, but as time goes by a improve the gameplay system (it's all a matter of level: the more noob the more boring game).

From level 25 you unlocks the fortress (which, in my opinion, looks like a game within a game Inception? ). There you are able to create gems to improve your character, gain extra experience and increase the capacity of the warehouse. For that, you need to defend your fortress of another players and preparing the attack of titans others forts giving an upgrade in your soldiers (like I said, it's look like another game!).

After level 50, you'll receive some quests with "broken glass". Collect all to be able to do quests and attack opponents and make dungeons at the same time (Yes, without it you're just going to be waiting with a "face of landscape" the end of quests to start anything else).

With the new update 'Pets', I don't have no idea what is this, but it's probably something with another Inception.

Important tips:

- If your internet is wavering, don't upgrade your character: as soon as you press on "+" the game will crash and you'll lose all that gold that took 'hours' to take;
- Don't forget to turn the wheel of Dr. Yabba Dabba Doo Abawuwu, with some luck he is quite useful.

Yes, this is a loading screen based game, but it gets better once you hit a higher level.
Don't expect a game full action, but it will keep you satisfied when you need to wait on the bus for a couple minutes.
The new content and weekend-specials keep it fun and entertaining.
I like it :) There are way too many negative reviews from people that only played less than an hour

Entertaining and doesn't require too much, but provides goals to build up to. It's a good casual game.

It's a classic browser game, but without Steam Achievements or Trading Cards I dont see the point of this being on Steam. Sure it is easier to play from Steam, but there is no difference from the two options.

- Bad starting for new players on the international servers, because there are a lot of experienced players creating new accounts.
- A very short part of the clans will ask for resources for you to enter the clan, you might actually get scammed by that.
- No sound on the game, just when you are in a fight or click to go to a certain location.

There aren't that many cons, but there are some pros that make this game enjoyable

- 3 classes, each one of them are completly different, different items, different stats and different special abilities.
- Good variation in races, each one of those are different on skills that might make your character strong or weak on the start of your progress. (I made a guide helping you out choosing the correct Race+Class, here it is: My Guide
- If you go away, you can leave your character doing missions or on Work Hours, so you get rewards when you come back.
- The community is not toxic, except for the clan scamming, which is very rare to happen.
- Big diversity on enemies, dungeons and items.
- Balanced quest rewards and ranking system.

It is a free game, however dont expect this game to be like the most popular games today.

I played this game for an hour last night after downloading it. I was looking for something new to try and thought this might be a cute game to play between some other things. Did a few quests and looked around at different places on the game. Tried an arena and won. Needed to go to bed so I set up a max shift at the city watch and went to bed. Today when I try logging on I get an error that says language is changed to "language name" please restart game. Restarting does nothing except repeat the message and you can literally do nothing except restart the game. Looking on line I see other people with the same issue and no replies from anyone on how to get around it. Found a lot more negative reviews than I saw in the first place and they coincide with what I was noticing last night. Since this was just a time filler game I'm not going to bother with spending hours figuring out what's wrong. Seems this game has a ton of issues all of the time anyway. Deleting it today. It's a shame because it looked promising at first.
