Is Age of Empires: World Domination a Copycat of Clash of Clans?

Yesterday, Microsoft and KLabGames announced that Age of Empires: World Domination will be released for iOS, Android and Windows Phone this summer.  Along with the announcement, a gameplay trailer for the game had surfaced online and attracted my attention simply because the gameplay involving the trailer is too much like that of Clash of Clans.

According to the announcement,  Age of Empires: World Domination will be a free to play empire building game where players play as Celts, Vikings, Franks and Huns to build their empires and then lead troops to victory.

If the game will finally play similarly to Clash of Clans, players will have to manage their city by spending a lot of time on building structures and troops. Also, IAPs are an inseparable part of the game. You will download the game for free and then purchase in-app currency to speed up your building and other items.

We are still not sure if the gameplay takes shape, but the graphics remind me of Age of Empires Online. One thing for sure is the game is not the traditional Age of Empires game you played. It is just the next-gen mobile strategy game based on Age of Empires.

Second Earth: Emphasizes Strategy over COC mechanics

If you are an Android gamer living in Canada, you might have already played “Second Earth“, a sci-fi strategy game that resembles Clash of Clans very much. Since this game were released for limited countries for the purpose of beta testing on the Android Platform, you may not pick up this game if you are not an Android user, or were unable to access and download the game.

Today, developer NtreevSoft launches the game in the Canadian App Store aiming to test it on the iOS platform. The game, as I just mentioned, plays with a goal of building a base, training troops and leading them to victory, which is extremely similar to those of “Clash of Clans”. That means, you will have to plan your own unique strategy. On the one hand, you can build your base as strong as enough so that your enemies won’t easily raid your base. On the other hand, you can directly attack other players for loot that can be reused to build your base.

Second Earth is not just a strategy game, but a social game that supports Facebook Invitation and Guild Build. So if you love Clash of Clans, you will definitely love this sci-fi strategy game.

On a side note, I think the visuals of Second Earth easily remind me of Galaxy Factions. Both of the games share a lot similarities.

Supercell Officially Launches Boom Beach

Supercell, the maker of Hay Day and Clash of Clans, has just launched its newest epic strategy game Boom Beach for iOS. The game, which soft-launched last year for Australian and Canadian App Stores, is now live worldwide with the sole support of iOS 7.0 or later.

Like Clash of Clans, Boom Beach offers you an island where you build your village by constructing defensive structures, training troops and produce spells and weapons to conquer other players across the world.

Honestly, Boom Beach can be considered a follow-up to Clash of Clans as both of the games share a lot in common. But Boom Beach also differs from what Clash of Clans offers in terms of battle mechanism, map and reward system.

If you are looking for a strategy game or a clone of Clash of Clans, Boom Beach is your right choice of this year.

How to Edit Map / Path in Royal Revolt 2

Some new players are still not sure of how to create an effective path to block enemies or delay enemy’s attack. I have created a video that showcases how to correctly edit your map or path in Royal Revolt 2.


To edit path, make sure you follow the steps below:

1, You have enough path lot available.

2, You must start editing from a path to another path or across grass, tree, and stone.

3, You cannot connect the path to the field that is covered with ruins. But you can remove ancient ruin by spending Gems.

4, You must hold on a path lot, then move your finger to where the path can be built.


1, Building path is necessary and useful for you to build defense towers and blockade on and around the sides.

2, Building zig-zag path could delay the time of enemy’s attack so that your defense buildings and units have enough time to fend off the invasion.

3, Try to deploy blockade and Barricade on the path and build Frost Tower and Bomb Tower around the blockage and barricade.

Ubisoft Unveiled Battle of Heroes: Land of Immortals; Largely Inspired by Clash of Clans

Ubisoft has soft-launched a mobile strategy game titled “Battle of Heroes: Land of Immortals“, which turns out to be a COC-inspired game set in the 3D fantasy world. Like Clash of Clans, Battle of Heroes: Land of Immortals allows you to build your kingdom, train units, and fight against other players from all over the world. However, the game doesn’t so much expand the existing COC’s core formula, but plays pretty much similarly to what you might have already fed with from Clash of Clans.

Battle of Heroes: Land of Immortals is clearly more for the diehard strategy gamers who love Clash of Clans, Castle Clans, Sensei Wars, etc. than Ubisoft’s hardcore fans keeping their eyes on Assassin’s Creed and Tom Clancy. Such strategy gamers are more likely to lose interest in this mechanism because there have been dozens of copycats out there, among which are no short of quality ones. The ironclad fact is Battle of Heroes: Land of Immortals itself does not add something interesting.

I have been playing the game since I download it from the Canadian App Store today. The opening animation storytelling feels like you will play a story-driven RPG, but quickly you will realize you made a mistake because when you have done with the teaser tutorial. You will not be put in a position of a village builder. Most of elements are similar to those “Clash of Clans” such as Gems, Timers, battles, and buildings.

Anyway, Battle of Heroes: Land of Immortals is a ripoff of Clash of Clans. The guys behind this project seem not to bring original ideas to it except that it is a 3D dark IP.

How to Get Gems for Free in Royal Revolt 2

Royal Revolt 2 is both fun and addicting. But this new version of Royal Revolt has a lot of timers that test your patience to wait longer and longer building and upgrading. For those gamers who would pay a few bucks to buy more workers, this article will not help you a lot, but for those who will never pay for Gems and want to accelerate your building, here comes my advice.

1, The system will reward you with a large amount of Gems that encourage you to instantly finish building and upgrading. I suggest you keeping these Gems on your inventory and don’t use them for any purpose until you have reached level 40.

2, To get more free Gems, you need to keep attacking enemies, upgrading your troops, structures and defenses.

3, The more you attack, the more XP your character will gain. So time you gain a new level, you will have some rewards. The game also features a nice achievement system that continuously give you free Gems.

4, When you reach level 40, you will have 100 Free Gems as a reward. At this time, you can use all of your Gems you have stocked up for a new worker.

5, If you don’t know how to get free Gems, just attack, attack and attack. That is the best way to get Free Gems.

6, Don’t Forget to collect your rewards by checking your quest log.

7, The most effective way to earn free Gems is to join League Tournament. In Silver League, if you could rank #1, you will get 45 Gems for free. In Gold League, you will get 75 Gems if you rank #1.

Have fun!

How to Let your Troops Defend your Kingdom / Castle in Royal Revolt 2

I have noticed that some players in Royal Revolt 2 did not set troops to defend their kingdom. That means when enemies are coming close to your castle gate, the troops you have unlocked like Warrior, Archer and Froster won’t go out to protect your castle.

To let your troops to fend off invasion, you must upgrade your Castle Guard on the one hand and add units you have unlocked to the slots. If you cannot find where the slots are, just open the Castle Guard, you cannot miss it.

The slot that each troop type occupies varies depending on what type you select. Make sure choose appropriate types according to your own strategy.
