Cookie Clicker is a wildly popular incremental game all about making cookies. This idle game will have you clicking on the screen as your bakery pumps out a staggering amount of delicious digital baked goods, all while you slowly go deeper into the hole that Cookie Clicker has to offer. If you’re not feeling like playing the game the ‘normal’ way, other methods can see you excel in making cookies.

A new icon will appear in the top left corner that shows a green cookie. When you hover over this, a list of buttons will appear that will let you make changes to the game — including providing you with all of the upgrades, toggling Frenzy mode, and of course, giving you a whole lot of cookies. At this point, you should also receive a new shadow achievement called Cheated cookies taste awful. Now you’re free to mess around with all of the options available to you and break the game however you want.
