The basic premise of the 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 free game has a slightly different take. Sure, you can go at it alone and try to establish your own clan, but it makes more strategic sense to join an existing one – 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 you will need to use an Android emulator to play Clash of Clans on your PC.
Can I download Clash of Clans?
Yes, you can, but not directly. You can download it from 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, then you can start the game.
Is BlueStacks safe?
BlueStacks is proven to be safe to download and use. Downloading the Clash of Clans from third-party sites can put your PC at risk, as it can be bundled with unwanted and dangerous malware. So, it's best to download the game directly from here: 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 playing the game and earning them. However, the game's level-matching system prevents paying players from gaining an unfair advantage.
It’s a pay-to-boost game, but in battles are matched with opponents of a similar skill level, 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.
