Game Review: Clash of Clans


Today, I decided to talk about this game that I’ve been playing on my iPhone these days. This game was suggested to me by an online friend who told me it was a lot of fun. Deciding to take their word for it, I installed the app and prepared to play it.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Clash of Clans.

I have 777 experience and 666 trophies :3
Uncannily like Farmville, Clash of Clans has you building your own personal space and creating buildings to expand your buildings. Unlike Farmville, however, there is a severe limit to how much you can build- because you only have 2 builders and most buildings takes quite a while to build when you’re at a higher level..
Let’s be honest, I’m not the most patient person. I’m the type who checks the app every hour or so, hoping for a miracle to happen and my buildings to be upgraded and builders freed.
13H 9M for one project, 4H for the other. Till then, you can’t really do anything…
I can’t help it! The time taken for these two fat builders to do their job is too much. Out of sheer anger and frustration, guess what I did..
That’s right. I deleted the game. I don’t need this kind of slowness and dependency in my life!
Another thing that I really didn’t like was how the game ran purely online. If you didn’t have connection, your game just wouldn’t open (that’s the part where my Temple Run 1 app comes into action).
Being purely online means having a multiplayer feature. Yes, you really do have clans and people attacking each other. That’s why you have to build these walls and cannons and archer towers to defend your Town Hall from being destroyed by other people. It’s satisfying seeing your village defend itself successfully from outsider attacks (there is a replay option when you find out your village has been attacked).
So yes, you can also go raid other player or the goblins of the story line! Train your army and swell your ranks an march off to battle. (I got stuck halfway and realized I needed to upgrade my buildings, but it’s taking soo long, I’m so bored!!)
To sum up, I’d give this game a rating of 2.5/5.
This game is not for people who play games to relax or enjoy themselves. This game is for people who like spending time to build an online empire by monopoly. Even Farmville was more exciting.
What games do you play on your phone?
