Clash of Clans
Clash of Clans review
Clash of Clans offers you to lead a clan through battles with your mortal enemies to the victory. All you want is a peaceful life for your village, and you are ready to kill everyone who threatens it.
This world is full of magic, goblins and other barbarians like you. Team up with wizards, who can cast protective spells, but don’t forget to but cannons, just in case. Since this game was made to level up your strategic skills, you need to master some kind of plan if you want to protect your territory.
At the beginning of the game, you receive a small village which you must protect from evil forces and other clans. And surprise surprise it stands exactly on Lay Line that apparently attracts all the monsters you never wanted to see. There is only one thing good about that Lay Line, cannon you bought to protect people will be repaired magically after the battle over some time.
After goblin attacked you, gather the army and attack their village back. You receive three silver stars award, which opens a new opportunity for you in the shop and raises your skills. Go back to your village, hire more builders and start training troops. This is when so-called Elixir comes to the stage. It helps your army to become better, village to progress and probably your fists stronger. Who knows! And yet, you do need the elixir for almost everything. Make sure you have enough of it. If not, you can either go and buy it for real money or take quests and earn it. Use Elixir collect, which costs 150 gold in the shop to pump it from Lay Line for starters.
Another variant to become rich is just pick a few dozens of soldiers, go to goblins and take all their gold. It looks barbarian, but it is who you actually are. With their gold, you may start rebuilding your village, make it prosperous. Just add enough options for your peasants to work with. Open the bank, storage, city hall, workshop, etc. Don’t forget about more cannons.
Controls are very easy to learn. You will have your own mentor who will suggest you next moves or explain the situation in general. From time to time, you will see green point mark appeared at the place you need to tap. You will have to use tapping to attack your enemies, gather loot, pick the place to build a barn, etc.
G raphics are simple but fascinating with its bright colors and attention to details. You can see everything from bird’s-eye view, so was a rather complicated task for developers of the game to create it enjoyable where people are nothing more than just yellow spots and all you can see are roofs of buildings, tops of the trees and green bold heads of works. The sounds and music in the game don’t really bother you. Sounds are realistic enough to make you feel in a village with birds singing and swords are sharpening. Still, the soundtrack may start bothering you after some time, so the best option is to turn it down or off.
- The game is simple to understand and play;
- You can master your skills in creating the village of your dreams.
- You constantly need Elixir even for the smallest tasks.
