The basic premise of Finnish developer Supercell’s Clash of Clans is like that of Age Of Empires II. From humble beginnings you build a settlement, and the aim is to develop it through strategy and warfare. Get the balance right, and you can rule the empire that rules them all.
However, while there are the usual elements of building and warfare, this game has a slightly different take. Sure, you can go it alone and try to establish your own clan, but it may make more strategic sense to join an existing on – provided it’s the right one for you. It has intense strategy features, like Clash Royale and Brawl Stars.
Can you play Clash of Clans on PC?
Supercell hasn’t created a Windows version, so using an Android emulator is the only way you can play Clash of Clans on your PC.
Can I download Clash of Clans?
Yes, you can, but not directly. You can get it from within the BlueStacks app.
As part of the BlueStacks installation you can log into your account in the Google Play Store. Once you’re in, you can search the store as you usually would on your phone or tablet.
When you’ve found Clash of Clans, click ‘Install’ and wait for it to finish, you can start the game.
Is BlueStacks safe?
BlueStacks is proven to be safe to download and use. Downloading it from some third-party sites can put you at risk of it being bundled with unwanted to dangerous additional software, so get it from here to be sure that it’s safe: BlueStacks
Is Clash of Clans pay to win?
No, it’s not, but there are in-app purchases that enable you to speed up some events. For example, you can buy items or buildings to get them immediately instead of working your way up to them, but the level-matching system in the game prevents paying players from gaining an unfair advantage.
It’s a pay-to-boost game, but in battles you’ll always be matched with opponents of a similar level of skills, equipment, etc.
Despite being a top-down view, the graphics are bold and colourful, and the experience is enhanced when played on a big screen.
Combat scenes are just the right length to be entertaining, and we like the constant lurking threat of goblin attacks.
