Clash of Clans Game Review
Since its inception in 2012, the Clash of Clans online strategy game has racked up millions of players and even more in terms of related revenues. This game has amassed so much success that it is no wonder people feel comfortable giving their hard earned money day in day out to have more. The Clash of Clans game is a free online game that pits gamers against each other or the system. The huge revenues grossed do not come from game sales but app download. Gamers can also choose to buy resources for use in faster progression in the game from the games developers.
What does the Game Entail?
Players in the game get a small plot in a virtual land in which they are supposed to develop and grow into a dominant base. As a player, you are supposed to develop defenses and armies to guard against attacks and use to attack others respectively. This means that players have to balance these objectives as both defense and attack go hand in hand in helping them dominate other players.
Attack and Defense
Clash of Clans has different attack resources all designed to target specific resources to attack in the rival players’ camps. This is the main factor to consider when developing these resources. While most attackers target camps close to them they will target different parts of the defenses employed in such camps meaning that players have to carefully evaluate their defenses as well as those of their rivals while developing attacking troops. The player has no control in what their troops will attack, but they can develop troops that target different parts of the surrounding players’ defenses. The player only controls where and when to deploy troops during battles.
After creating defenses, attacks come during the hours that you are not active in the game. This means that players are supposed to develop the toughest defenses to make sure that their base is still up in by the time they get back. After an attack, you will get a chance to replay it and see how your defenses held up or fell. You get the chance for revenge attacks immediately.
As you advance in the game, you can either choose to accumulate resources or trophies. Resources are used in buying troops and upgrading the base to your satisfaction while trophies help advance up the leader boards. Most players prefer to accumulate resources first and then fight for trophies later.
Although it is possible to play the game for free by finishing different tasks in the game, and earning gems to use in acquiring resources, players can buy the gems and get resources to advance quicker.
At the highest level players, join into clans and attack each other so as to see which clan can inflict the most damage and hence come out as the winner.
