Crusaders of the Lost Idols is a 2D top down game created in July 2015 by Codename Entertainment. It is an incremental role-playing game where the player controls various NPCs, known as Crusaders to defeat incoming monsters. The game utilizes idle tactics as well as active game play to earn gold (the game's main currency) to purchase Crusader levels and upgrades. There are also various equipable items that players can unlock via chests that are awarded after boss battles. Like most incremental games, there is a pseudo "prestige" implemented in the game in the form of a World Reset that unlocks "Idols" which increase Crusader damage as well as gold accumulation.

This wiki is very much a work in progress, as is the game. If you're playing, this is where you can add the stuff that the player who created it hasn't gotten to yet!

You can play Crusaders of the Lost Idols at Kongregate, Armor Games, or Steam.

Gender flag example

The hover tip also indicates human or non-human, in case it isn't clear from the characterisation. Also shows a RoyaltyCrown image to indicate crusaders influenced by the Royal Grail ability.
Latest addition is the Chess ndt45 image to indicate animal crusaders—as opposed to humans, robots, orcs, etc. For an example of all three flags in use at once, check out Prince Sal, the Merman.
