Clash of clans Review
Free-to-play has been on the rise for some years now and is gradually expanding to all types of games. Because there are so many games on the Web and smartphones, to distinguish themselves, some adopt models offering to play for free in exchange for a few optional purchases. Clash of Clans is no exception and since its launch in August 2012, it has been downloaded by hundreds of thousands of players and now has an impressive community. Full of qualities but also of defects, the game is worth it that you try it in turn?
The strategy game revisited
The mechanisms of Clash of Clans, you already know them if you are customary games of war strategy such as the Age of Empire series. We start with the bare minimum of buildings and gradually we build others and improve them before expanding the city. Of course, for all this to be possible, resources are needed and they are in the game of two: gold and elixir, accompanied by their own tanks. Then come the defenses which are, they, much more varied. There are of course the traditional ramparts but also the cannons, archers’ towers and mortars to attack from a distance, as well as traps like hidden bombs or even more crazy, the springs. By gradually improving all these facilities, your city will become a real fortress and organize its buildings will quickly appear as a must. In addition to being practical (a simple drag and drop to change the place of a building), this system is essential because you can not defend your base in real time with armies as in most games of its kind. So get ready at best because in your absence an enemy could well point and plunder your resources.
Let’s attack !
Of course, on the contrary, you also have the possibility to launch assaults. The creation of units is also simplified: one building to create one, another to improve them, both can evolve to provide different and more powerful units. Once you have concocted your army, go into a battle against goblins (solo mode) or directly into multi by selecting a random player. The assault is quite complicated to lead, it is actually just to put his units near the enemy and let them fend for themselves. Certainly, depending on the type of warriors chosen, the buildings targeted will be different, but we can pester against this system of combat which besides being particularly boring, prohibits you any control which implies inevitably that it will not happen exactly as you you waited there. In fact, once the units are posed, there is nothing left to do but contemplate the battle hoping to win it. Positive point about the attacks however, the possibility of storing units of allies of his clan that manifest themselves in case of assault of your base.
Slow when you hold us …
The existence of special heroes to unlock at a very high level also boosts the battles. However, before seeing the color of these heroes, you have time in front of you. Of course, Clash of Clan is not a completely free game and its developers must eat well from time to time, the presence of an in-game currency, called “gem” is not surprising. As in most free-to-play games of this kind, these gems are mainly used to save time, by instantly completing building or unit formation. On the other hand, what is much more surprising is the completely abusive times necessary for basic actions. At first, everything goes well, but it degenerates quickly. Take the gold mine for example, basic building which you will quickly 6 copies. A mine only takes a minute to build, 5 minutes to upgrade to level 2, then twelve hours from level 5 to 6 and five days from level 10 to level 11, which is absolutely huge! Of course, we say that it is to encourage in-game purchases but these are completely useless since once an improvement purchased, we always find ourselves having to wait without discovering new possibilities of gameplay. Purchases are also offered at exorbitant prices. To avoid waiting for five days to improve the gold mine, it would thus spend 750 gems is already more than 5 €. Multiply this number by the number of buildings and evolutions, add the necessary resources as well as the labor (2 simultaneous constructions maximum, up to 5 by spending 25 € in the shop) and you will have a good idea of the problem of this game: everything is extremely long and / or expensive. So, of course, you always have the opportunity to fight to wait, but by dint of having nothing else to do than spend 5 minutes every other day, you will quickly forget Clash of Clans and it’s a shame.
Very good game! We become addict. It’s a very good strategy game. In addition, with the recent update, clan wars are more strategic than ever. As for the real waiting for things under construction or the preparation of the troops, we get done quickly!
Entertaining, adictive, the game requires the presence of the foresight of the strategy, it allows to have a good time, it does not require a number of important connections, only once a day is enough. The cooperation aspect offered by the clans allows to appreciate even more the game, in short, I did not expect to enjoy so much a mobile game 🙂
All in all, alas I find that the automatic choice of the person to attack is sometimes difficult but it is quite strategic in battles and it’s quite fun.The game has a good life with a lot of level (360 !!) and beautiful grafisme.The cat instentanné with other people in lines is also great.
