A kingdom building game by mobile developer Supercell, Clash of Clans is a free-to-play game available on iOS and Android. Gather resources—like gold and elixir—to build up the walls around your castle, amassing a fierce army with major weaponry.
Released in August 2012, Clash of Clans is always on the top mobile games lists. But maybe you're stick of it. Maybe you want to try something new. And for that, we've got you covered. There are plenty of games with Clash of Clans–like elements, and these are the best ones.
Boom Beach, also by Clash of Clans developer Supercell, is, naturally, similar to Clash of Clans. While Clash of Clans is set in a more medieval style Norse kingdom, Boom Beach takes place on a tropical island with tiny soldiers. Some players enjoy it more than Clash of Clans because of its shorter build times. In Boom Beach, players will never wait weeks like they would with major, late game upgrades in Clash of Clans.
There are also no walls in Boom Beach, a feature some find incredibly annoying in Clash of Clans. This makes Boom Beach's base management much more enjoyable, without decreasing its importance. In Boom Beach, the key objectives are building up your base, keeping it safe from bad guys, and arming your forces to take on enemies.
Boom Beach is available on Android and iOS devices.
'Star Wars Commander'
Like Clash of Clans, Star Wars Commander is a strategy base building game. It's developed by Disney Interactive, and as you may have guessed, is set in the Star Wars universe. Sure, it's not a Clash of Clans clone, but it's clearly influenced by it. As Rebellion forces, bases must be built up to fight against the Empire. (If you choose to fight for the Empire, you'll take on the Rebellion, of course.) There are troops to train, missions to explore. For Clash of Clans fans who are into Star Wars, there's no doubt that Star Wars Commander will impress.
Star Wars Commander is free-to-play on Android, iOS, Windows, and Windows Phone.
'Call of Duty: Heroes'
Looking for Clash of Clans with a more realistic, military feel? That's Call of Duty: Heroes. It's a new way to experience the Call of Duty franchise, moving away from the first-person experience and into a large-scale strategy role. By upgrading an outpost and training elite forces, players will be able to launch massive attacks on enemy bases. Specific hero characters are also available, allowing players to rack up kill-streaks, just like in the regular series.
Three modes are available to play—campaign, PvP, and survival mode. The campaign moves along a set path of A.I. bases, while PvP pits live players against each other. Survival Mode in Call of Duty: Heroes puts players in wave-based missions with plenty of prizes to be won.
Call of Duty: Heroes is available for free on Android and iOS.
Strategy warfare game Total Conquest is very similar to Clash of Clans, just with a Roman warrior theme. In the game, players must build up bases after the death of Caesar, protecting their properties with turrets and towers. Train units to keep out enemy forces, or else bases will get knocked out in no time.
Like with many of other Clash of Clans clones, there are multiple modes to choose from. Single player campaigns and PvP are both supported in Total Conquest. And that's a good thing—something for all fans of the genre to enjoy.
The game is free-to-play on iOS and Android devices.
Jungle Heat takes the castle defense strategy game to, well, the jungle. Centered on base management, Jungle Heat is very similar to Clash of Clans. Building up a base and training troops is essential is attacking enemies and defending a stronghold. Like with the other games on this list, it's free-to-play—but players can opt into purchasing items to speed things up.
Those who are familiar with Clash of Clans will find themselves at home in Jungle Heat, which is available on iOS and Android devices.
