So recently my friend Haqzore, from over at the Game Slayer Nation, got involved in a game called Clash of Champions. He made a post about the game and I was intrigued, so I checked it out. I really liked the playstyle of this genre of games, as is evidence of the love affair I had with Backyard Monsters. The main problem that I had with the game was that I just felt underwhelmed, especially given all of the advertising I have seen about the game. So I set about searching for something that would impress me. That led me to Castle Clash!
Castle Clash has all of the gameplay elements found in this genre: units that can be upgraded, buildings that can upgraded, several different types of currencies, and of course is founded on the concept of micro transactions. The thing that sets this game apart from the others (for me) is that it introduces heroic characters. These are special units that require quite a bit of effort to get and upgrade, but they are well worth it.
In addition to the standard gameplay of fighting other players and dungeons, which grow quite difficult very quickly, the game offers a MOBA style of mini-game play via its arena system. While I will not spoil the fun of this system for you, if you like games like League of Legends, then you will probably love playing this little mini-game. The added bonus of playing is that it helps you acquire honor badges which in turn allows you to acquire additional heroes!
If you love this genre of game, then I highly recommend giving this one a shot. If you have never played this type of a game before, then this is a great one to jump in on!
