Mobile game giant, Supercell has soft launched a brand new mobile game Clash Royale. As the name suggests, characters from Clash of Clans will be appearing in this new Castle Defense -based mobile game. Read on to find out more!
Clash Royale is a simple Card-based Castle-Defense game filled with tons of strategic gameplay. Instead of the usual side-scrolling Left to Right approach, Clash Royale uses the top-down view which allows players more strategic placements of their units.
Players will build a deck of 8 cards and deploy units throughout the 3 minutes of Arena time. The objective of the game is to take down the enemy’s Middle Crown Tower. However, should the 3 minutes timer runs out, the player with the most towers standing wins.
To deploy units, players will have to pay an upkeep with elixirs which will recharge over time. It is important to build your deck with a mixture of low and high elixir cost units so as to react to all kinds of situations. Leveling your units is also important to increase their stats and it’s also 1 of the 2 ways to level up your player level. You can level your units by collecting and saving up on the same cards.
I’ve played a few games before writing this and I must say that the game is quite fun and interesting. However, the match-making system isn’t exactly the best. Although you’ll be paired with players from the same level, people who spend more money to acquire strong units early on will definitely have more advantage. So unless everyone is willing to invest a long time to play the game and maxed out all the units, Supercell will continue to be the one of the richest developer out there.
Clash Royale is currently available for free on iOS in Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, and New Zealand. Hurry and get it quick before the pros hogged the top spots!
Update: Clash Royale is now available for Android Players! However, the game is still in soft launch thus only the above mentioned countries can download the app from the Play Store. Android players who are not from these countries can download the apk from APKpure!
