Game Insight’s Cloud Raiders Resembles Clash of Clans in Many Ways

Cloud Raiders, developed by innoWate and published by Game Insight, is about sky pirates and monsters who get involved into a war in an isolated island. In the game, you need to build your base, train troops, construct defensive structures, produce resources and lead your troops to conquer other pirates or simply defend your own base.

Judging from the brief introduction of the game, I am sure you have already known how the game works and a landscape of a game might come into your mind. Yes, you are right, Cloud Raiders is just another copycat that closely resembles the world’s most popular epic strategy mobile game Clash of Clans.

To be honest, Cloud Raiders did not give me a surprise partly because I have already known it is a ripoff of Clash of Clans, and mostly because It was done not well. Its color scheme is too much like My Country and the whole landscape feels like a 2D static picture. The ocean surrounding your base should really have waves, or at least give it a little animated ripple instead of a blue picture.

Combat, controls and the whole mechanism are just the same as Clash of Clans. If you compare Cloud Raiders with Clash of Clans, you will find the gap between Cloud Raiders and Clash of Clans is too wide to be filled. Even though it feels inferior to IGG’s Castle Clash.

From its visuals to its heroes, Cloud Raiders cannot be considered a pleasure for both casual and strategy gamers.  I cannot believe why Game Insight would still love to publish such type of game especially a game that does not stand out in many ways.

Anyway, Cloud Raiders is now available for worldwide player on Google play. If you are an Android phone or tablet user, you can now visit this link to download this game.

Royal Revolt 2 Looks Like a Souped-up Version of Clash of Clans

If you love the original Royal Revolt game, you should really take a try on Flaregames’s Royal Revolt 2, a new sequel to Royal Revolt yet with a thorough change from its 3D vibrant visuals, to gameplay.

The game starts with an introduction invading battle that lets you call your tiny warrior by keeping tapping a button, and you can command your warrior by tapping ground anywhere. The game actually looks different from Clash of Clans at this moment. But after you’ve completed this quest, you will be given a very familiar circle to go for. Let’s say, you will have to build your defense, clear stones or forest to build defense towers, traps and other structures. This will gradually remind you of Clash of Clans especially when you have to build your village in a framework of Timer.

However, Royal Revolt 2 is extremely different from many other strategy battle games. Its 3D visuals are a major ride and its battle is completely from Clash of Clans. You can control your units during combat. It was done quite well.

If you are still addicted to Clash of Clans, I suggest you take a minute to play this game, you will be amazed by this marvelous game.

League of Warriors Emerging on iOS After Being Removed From Facebook

It seems that the influence of “Clash of Clans” is still growing as Social Point, the maker of Dragon City, has recently soft-launched a COC-like game “League of Warriors” for iOS in the Canadian App Store. As we searched the keyword “League of Warriors” on Google, we found that League of Warriors was released for Facebook last year and then removed for no reason.

Now the mobile version of League of Warriors is coming back again and what could it bring and how good it is? It is hard to make a conclusion for such type of game, but the fact is there are tons of such copycats and among them, there are also a lot of quality ones.
