Mobile Monday: Clash of Clans Review.

Welcome to Mobile Monday: Clash of Clans Review. This new weekly-ish post will feature a new mobile game review brought by Me, Chachi Says! The video game themed post will be moved to Tuesday so you’ll get more words from the genius mind of Chachi!

The first of the games to be reviewed is going to be Clash of Clans. *Warning: This is a freeium game. Meaning that you can play without paying or you can buy your way to power! So if you or someone you know are prone to pumping out moneys for games like this maybe stay away.*

Game: Clash Of Clans
Developer: Supercell
Platform: Android, iOS.

I came across the game the same as most of the other players did. Supercell advertised the hell out of this game. You could not turn on a media form of any kind and not hear the name Clash of Clans. I would turn on tv, slacker radio, Facebook, it was everywhere.  As most things of video game nature if you cram it down my throat chances are ill play it at least once. In fact while playing a different game an ad for this game just came up.(Except Farmville, i have never and will never play Farmville)

Object:

The object of this game is like other games of the genre. Build the kingdom, Rule the other players, be the most powerful. The only difference in Combat Strategy games is the setting in which the game takes place. Whether fantasy or based on reality the games never change much.

Gameplay:

The game is a simple touch and play game.  Collect elixir and gold to use to build and upgrade your kingdom. Building up the collection points to build more. Gaining an army consisting of Barbarians, Archers, Goblins, Giants, Wall Breakers, Balloon, Wizards, Healer, Dragon, Pekka.  The higher the soldier rating the more room it takes up in the barracks and ultimately the less soldiers and longer the generation time takes. Same with building and upgrading as all games in this genre go. Thats were the pay to play comes in. Buy gems to speed up all productions or wait it out.

2014-06-08-23-02-14

There are two gameplay modes in the Clash of Clans. Single player in which you take on hordes of goblins using your army or you can take on other players and climb the ranks to number 1. The battle gameplay leaves a bit to be desired. No matter the outcome of the battle the troops used in battle are gone. After which you must generate more. Another downfall is not being able to control what the troops attack. So the troops run in and attack the closest object regardless of defenses in place.

Graphics: The high point of this game is the art work. For being a mobile game the art work is fantastic. As shown in the pictures i screenshot from the game. I keep coming back for the graphics.

2014-06-08-23-03-35

Overall: Had this game not been crammed down my throat via advertising i probably wouldn’t have played it. However, i do continue to play it because honestly its a lot of waiting. So the game doesn’t take up much of your time. Not the typical mobile style. The gameplay itself leaves something to be desired in that you should be able to control at least to some point the troop movement and attack pattern. Overall, probably not the mobile game you are looking for. However, not a bad game, just not a great game. Chachi gives this 2.5 out of 5.

Stan Lee to be playable Character?

Now this isn’t confirmed with the publisher or Stan’s people but in this interview he does state that he will be a playable character in the upcoming release of “The Amazing Spider-Man”

He does state that he has never played a video game so he may be mistaken or mixed up but knowing Stan the Man, If he wants it, he gets it.

Stay tuned True Believer we will update this as it develops. My question is what Stan’s super power is going to be? Signing autographs just by looking at the paper? Blending in like a chameleon?  Knocking back tapioca with the quickness? We shall see!(source: http://kotaku.com/5889835/stan-lee-as-a-playable-character-in-the-amazing-spider+man-can-you-true+believe-it and credit to Addict of Fiction for the video)

Game 52: Bubble Bobble

Bubble Bobble
1986
Taito

Lets Meet the stars!
Bub and Bob. Simple enough right?  It gets better. The game concept is nice and simple also.
Capture the bad guys on each level in your bubbles and popping the bubbles therefore clearing the level of all bad guys. Then you move on to the next stage and repeat.

Sounds simple enough right? Well, not always and even though its a simple concept its as addicting as tetris and just as fun. With the assistance of special bubbles containing point items or weapons such as water or lightning you have the ability to quickly dispatch those evil monsters. Also the levels are timed. While there is no actual timer counting down you will get a message telling you to hurry before an invincable skull monster comes to hunt you down. Starting slowly at first and then moving faster to take a life from you to end the level before you do.This game has seen a ton of consoles and i believe the streak will continue. this is a game that has touched a console in just about every generation since the Commodore 64 all the way to the nintendo wii. A homebrew version of the was even released for the ti-83 graphing calculator in 2002.

Bub and bob have even made appearances in other flash bubble games. This game or characters are not going any where any time soon.

Game 51: Punch Out!!

Punch Out!!
1987
Nintendo

*ding ding ding* The Challenger in the black tank top with green trunks, 17 years old, 4 ft 8 in, 107 lb (or 5 ft 7 in, 107 lb in the Wii version) hailing from The Bronx, New York…… lllllllliiiiittttttttttttllllle mac!

With the help of your training doc you climb the ranks of the wvba on your way to becoming the world heavy weight champion and earn your shot to fight Mike Tyson!!!!… or Mr. Dream depending on which version of the game you were lucky enough to buy. The reason for this switch is the deal with tyson had run out so rather than pay him more money they just made a version without him.

Anyway, you climb through the ranks fight guys that are waaaaaaay bigger than you and really the only one not bigger than you is mario. which makes you a dwarf and him a little person. I guess. what im really trying to say is get a step ladder because thats the only way you stand a chance!

This arcade to nintendo port had its challenges. Nintendo was unable to do a straight port because the arcade machine was more powerful than the nintendo. and so they had to reduce the graphics and change from the wireframe full sized challenger who did not have a name.( yet another change.)

So they shrunk him, lowered the graphics and gave him a name.Lets not forget the list of awesome bad guys Soda Popinski(the drunk Russian) the perpetual loser in Glass Joe. and everyone’s favorite the unmovable force from Hippo Island….. King Hippo!

This game continues to make its way from console to console and entertain kids of all ages.
