Clash Royale Tops the iPhone Top Grossing Game Charts
The mobile gaming market is huge, with new titles being released day after day. You can play whatever game you imagine, from free online casino games to strategy titles, action and racing games, or even sports, on your Android and iOS powered device. But MOBAs are the biggest hits lately. And the biggest MOBA title to hit the market this year (so far) is Clash Royale, Supercell's latest video game.
Who is Supercell
Supercell is a video game development company based in Helsinki, Finland. Founded in 2010, it has released several successful mobile games to date, including Boom Beach, Hay Day, Clash of Clans, and their latest, Clash Royale. Before Hay Day, they released a series of other games starting 2011, like Gunshine.net, Pets vs. Orcs, and so on, but all of them are discontinued today.
Clash Royale is Supercell's latest MOBA - Multiplayer Online Battle Arena - title, long anticipated by its fans. The game's release was sequential - it was first launched on iOS devices in Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Finland and New Zealand only on January 4th, followed by a limited Android release in the same countries in February. For the game's global launch players had to wait until March 2nd, but it was worth it: the game jumped to the top spot of the iOS game charts, both when it comes to downloads and gross revenue.
How to play
Clash Royale combines elements taken from collectible card games, tower defense titles and MOBAs. Each player has a card deck with up to 48 cards, where each card represents a troop, a building or a spell. The cards can have various levels, like common, rare or even legendary. They can be found in chests, and bought in the shop for gold. Each player can take a battle deck with eight cards to any battle.
The game takes place in an arena, where both players have three towers: two with the troops, and one with the King. The goal of the game is to either destroy them all, or focus on the King's tower and destroy it, which leads to an instant victory. Players can deploy troops, weapons of massive destruction, or even spells to reach their goal.
Clash Royale has received mostly positive reviews since its first release. Besides, the fact that it is both the most downloaded and most lucrative iPhone game of the month says a lot about its quality. TouchArcade's Eli Hodapp has given it a 5 out of 5, and called it "absolutely phenomenal". Other critics praise it for its huge potential for fun and nail-biting, and for its potential to keep its players busy for weeks, or even months.
