Conquering Clash Royale

on Jun 11, 2016 in Fun | 0 comments

Clash Royale from Supercell is an epic card battle game with real-time strategy components. Here’s how to bust a move and dominate the game. Be Patient With Your Attacking Strategy Clash Royale mashes it up with card combating mechanics and takes the Clash of Clans formula. A lot of magic attacks and the exact same troops you’re comfortable with are included in trading card kind. On the battlefield, it may seem like a good idea to rush the assault and take down your opponent as fast as possible. But during the opening moments of a match, start out slow with your offensive strategy. Do’t freak out too much when you discover your towers are becoming assaulted; remain composed and send your troops out according to your strategic plans. When you do take a minimum of one Competitor Tower down, that’s the time where you grab the win as fast as possible and should ramp up your assault. As the time winds down to seconds and its last minute, the rate at which your Elixir refills will double. This gives you the opportunity to put more troops on the field than before. Arrows and Fireballs Away when You’re Closing for the Kill Here’s an important hint that you’ll have to take heed of – once one of your challengers’ Competition Towers drop, its King’s Tower will begin attacking you. Once you hit them that super tower that is significant will even start attacking you. If you believe you’re prepared to beat ’ em down early or the King’s Towers’ strikes are beginning to rev up, throw some fireballs and arrows its manner. The King’s Tower is a foe that is strong, but a combination of those strikes plus the help of troops that are on the field should whittle down its health in no time. To be quite honest, your set of fireballs and arrows should just be used on the King’s Tower. Using those assault cards in every other manner works just as well. Use Your Elixir Intelligently As you pull out new cards pay close attention to your Elixir meter and put ’em into play. Fight the urge to put out a powerful troop at the beginning of a match; play the kind of cards who’s value reaches around a max level of four. In order to flood the battlefield use units that are smaller at first and whittle down your foe’s tower wellbeing. It’s better to let your towers wipe out the smaller troops attacking them instead of spending a card to be spawned by Elixir in order to get the better of them. You should just spend some Elixir to spawn a powerful troop when you realize you’ll have enough to spend on another troop right after. Do’t function as the kind of player who has little to none to work with against an overwhelming force and overspends Elixir. The Greatest Troop Cards You’ll Need to Apply We’ve a couple favorites as it pertains to the troop cards you’ll desire to definitely take into battle. Super Goblins and goblins are not expensive as it pertains to spending Elixir, so it’s simple to throw a bunch of ’em on the battlefield. Archers are great long range troops who you should set up near your towers. Baby Dragons can steer clear of the strikes of some troops, plus its fireball strikes find a way to wipe out more than one troop at once. Barbarians pack lots of HP, making them excellent “Tank” type characters who can tear up enemy troops immediately and continue a while that is good. Golems are the most powerful troop kind there is throw one out near the termination moments of a match to nab the triumph ASAP. Minion Horde, giant Skeleton, Wizard and Prince cards come in handy also, thus adopt a strategy for them that works for you. Getting New Cards Takes Some Time If you’re pressed for time, odds are high that you’re gonna spend a few jewels to open recently obtained torsos up instantly. You’ll be allowed access to new cards by simply cracking open. From time to time, you ’ll be fortunate enough to gain a Rare or kind card that is Epic. If you’re patient, you then should’t have much of an issue waiting the allotted time needed for a torso to reveal it’s goods. Free Torsos open up the moment you get ’em (you’ll get a brand new one every four hours), plus Silver Torsos take three hours to open. Gold Torsos take eight hours, Magic Torsos take 12 hours and Crown Torsos open up immediately (you’ll get a brand new one every 24 hours). For the last two torso sorts in the game, Giant Torsos take Super Magic Torsos and 12 hours take 24 hours to open. The Greatest Time to Break Out Your Poison Spell When you eventually add the Toxin enchantment card to your deck, make sure that you use it during one specific scenario that happens during every match. When you find your towers getting a bit it’s best to hit them with this gaseous cloud of departure. That way, you’ll find a way to slow on enemies that are incoming and open them up for more assaults out of your towers. The Toxin enchantment card also helps give your troops an edge since they’ll have a less difficult time wiping poisoned troops out....

Boom Beach

on Sep 19, 2014 in Fun | 0 comments

If you peek at the top grossing games list on the Apple App Store, you’ll probably notice that Clash of Clans has been sitting at the #1 spot for a long time. A verrrrry long time, as it turns out. The maker of that game, Supercell, really knows how to make games that make money. Their second hit, Hay Day, is also in the top 10. And earlier this year, Supercell released a third game called Boom Beach, which shows just as much promise as a money-maker, and maybe more importantly: it’s really fun to play. Boom Beach is kind of a spiritual successor to Clash of Clans, and if you’ve played CoC or any of the competitors it has spawned over the past couple of years, then Boom Beach will be readily familiar to you. You start out with a simple and small island base and your goal is to explore the surrounding islands and free the inhabitants of those islands from the oppressive clutches of the Blackguard. You’ll also encounter islands controlled by “mercenaries” which are actually other human players in the game. The storyline of the Blackguard is engaging, but soon enough you’ll come to realize that the meat of the game is in the player vs. player confrontations, much as it is with Clash of Clans. Although it’s pretty basic on the surface, deep down there’s a lot of strategy involved. Your tropps arrive on Landing Craft and are supported by a Gunship, which can be outfitted with all kind of weaponry and support powers for your troops. A big part of the game is “softening up” the island’s defenses with your Gunship before you even deploy your troops. And your troop choices are highly varied. Certain combinations of troops need to be employed to take on the different island defenses successfully. All in all, there are many different approaches you can take, and that’s what keeps the game really interesting. If it all gets overwhelming, fear not: the Internet has responded with plenty of Boom Beach cheats sites and other encyclopedic resources of each troop, building, and resource in the game. Of course, as much fun as the game is, keep in mind that it’s a freemium offering and made by the folks at Supercell, who really know how to get you to open your wallet. Keep that in mind as you get deeper into the game. It’s very easy to get to a point where you feel compelled to purchase the in-game currency to speed things up. And that’s where Boom Beach can get really...

Angry Birds Epic

on Jul 7, 2014 in Fun | 0 comments

What do you get when you take a popular mobile game franchise and turn it into a free-to-play role-playing game? You get Angry Birds Epic, the latest release from Rovio. Year after year, they’ve been adding titles to expand from the original Angry Birds game, which was an incredibly popular paid download featuring our fine feathered friends in a physics-based puzzle game. Now the birds star in a turn-based RPG where you need to battle enemy pigs on Pig Island. A lot of the story is the same. Pigs steal eggs. Birds are, well, angry. Birds chase after pigs to rescue the eggs. Action and hilarity ensues. In this game, your birds have different classes–ranging from warrior to healer, and you need to fight a variety of enemy pigs on your quest to rescue five eggs. The game is also free-to-play, which as mobile gaming experts understand, rarely means it’s actually free. Although you can get very far in the game without ever spending real money, the temptation is there and the game mechanics make it very easy to quickly shell out a lot of dough to make in-app purchases. So far the only real shared criticism of the game is that the IAP methods are too aggressive, especially to those who are used to the paid download model of the early Angry Birds games. Personally, I love the game and have gotten pretty far along without having to spend any real money. I’ve been relying on Angry Birds Epic cheats and walkthroughs that I’ve found at various places on the Web. There’s lots of strategy involved, just like with the original games, but it’s a different sort of strategy–more of a combat mentality than knocking down towers. In the end, though, it’s a really fun game to play. Download on iTunes Download for...
