Clash of Clans is a free-to-play strategy game from Supercell. It is set in a medieval fantasy world and players are tasked with building a village, training troops, forming clans and attacking other players' villages. Players can build a variety of buildings, and train troops in their barracks. Troops can be upgraded to increase their power. Players can join together to form clans, and these clans can be further divided into sub-clans. Even though Clash of Clans is free to play, it does have some non-cosmetic features that can be purchased through the use of a premium currency called gems. In Clash of Clans, players are able to build and upgrade their village, create and train armies, and most importantly, participate in battles to protect and expand their territory. The player starts with a single village, but can soon build more to form a clan of his own.


Clash of Clans is a strategy game with two major elements: building and attacking. Players must build a variety of structures, such as barracks, barracks, and gold mines, to train troops and generate gold and elixir. Players can also cast spells, and can upgrade their troops to make them more powerful. Players can attack other players' villages to steal their resources and trophies, which will give players fame. There are two modes of play available: one player and clan. In the one player mode, players are pitted against a series of AI-controlled villages, and can also choose to attack other players' villages. Clans can choose to declare war on other clans, with the clan with the most trophies declared the winner. Clash of Clans gameplay involves players building up their village and training troops to attack other players' villages. The player must carefully choose which buildings to construct, and which troops to train, based on that player's chosen strategy.


The graphics of Clash of Clans are fairly muted, but still fairly pleasing to the eye. The main colors used are browns and greens, and the buildings and characters are all detailed. There are a few cutscenes that are fairly well animated. Clash of Clans is a 2D game with a mix of pixelated and 3D graphics.


Clash of Clans has a lot of replayability due to its different modes of play, and because it is a strategy game. It is also free-to-play. Players will be able to replay Clash of Clans for a long time.
