So without further ado, we present 8 games to check out if you’re looking for a game like Clash of Clans.
Cookie Run: Kingdom
Cookie Run: Kingdom feels like the sweet counterpart of Clash of Clans. This game’s jam-packed with a richer narrative and colorful cast of characters. In this game, you must help five heroic cookie warriors defeat shadowy harbingers of darkness.
This game allows players to build their own cookie land, ally with delectable beings, and engage in stylized battles where you utilize multiple items to support your teams. The game offers a decent challenge, but with the correct team, you may find yourself sweeping your way through its multiple obstacles.
Furthermore, the items inserted into the game can be difficult to obtain due to the title’s timed events, chance rates, and the gacha system. Some items can be a hassle to get, especially if you adore playing games without spending any money. While it lacks in these areas, this title’s gameplay loop and vibrant setting will keep you invested.
Guardian Kingdoms is another tower defense mobile game where you’ll band together with your friends to defeat rival kingdoms in live 3 Vs. 3 battles. This game evokes a historical nature with its abundance of war-like imagery from Warships to ancient Valkyrie warriors.
Visually, the game offers jaw-dropping visuals and exhilarating animations that’ll keep you hooked. The game contains a decent progression system and a multitude of rewards to collect. While gamers will have basic units who’ll fight for their cause, Guardian Kingdoms includes valuable warriors called Champions you can recruit.
Each Champion has a distinct appearance and range of abilities. The game provides players with enemy bosses to defeat. These bosses evoke a sense of challenge and require gamers to form excellent team-based strategies to defeat them. Defeating a boss allows you to boost your Champion’s potential.
The game contains some form of PVP action to add to its replayability. If you’re searching for another game that contains similarities to titles like Clash of Clans or Age of Empires, check out Guardian Kingdoms.
If you’re a huge Clash of Clans and pirate fan, Plunder Pirates is the game for you. This mobile title captures the pirate lifestyle flawlessly with its subtle nods to its beautiful landscapes. The animations in this title feel as zany and cartoonish as what you would find in Clash of Clans.
What helps Plunder Pirates stand out would be its exploration components. This game aims to make you feel like a pirate by allowing you to explore different lands which house different crews, ships, and places to discover. On some islands, you may encounter some precious materials that you can reel back to your islands.
The game’s not without its faults. The level progression can feel slow at times. The in-game items aren’t reasonably priced either. While it banks on its slow progression system to keep players hooked, some may find the game to get boring after a few hours. If you enjoy pirates and Clash of Clan’s gameplay structure, then Plunder Pirates might be the title for you.
Boom Beach is another mobile strategy game developed by Clash of Clans developer Supercell. This game offers the same tower defense-styled gameplay formula as Clash of Clans but engulfs its combat within tropical environments. The gameplay feels a lot deeper and slightly satisfying too.
This mobile title entices players to form better strategies when tackling opponents and AI. While there are some monetary aspects and subtle glitches that don’t bode well with current players, the gameplay’s invigorating enough to warrant fans’ attention.
If you’re looking for a Clash of Clans clone that offers beautiful visuals and an addictive gameplay loop, give Boom Beach a shot.
Plants Vs Zombies
Plants Vs. Zombies were one of those mobile games that took off in the vein of Subway Surfer and Angry Birds. This game provides beautiful visuals and addictive tower-defense-styled gameplay. Unfortunately, this title lacks a solid multiplayer mode, unlike Clash of Clans.
Its progression system can be a bit trivial at times. Furthermore, newer versions of the beloved classic contain an overabundance of ads that may bother folks who enjoy playing games for long sessions. Even with its ad-free option, players have encountered issues here.
Besides those concerns, the game contains the same plant troop vs. hungry zombie gameplay fans love. While this game feels like a gateway title for newcomer mobile game enthusiasts, it offers enough challenge and strategy to appeal to veterans. If you’ve always wanted to see who’d win in a bout between these green organisms, I’d recommend checking out the Plants Vs. Zombies franchise.
Castle Clash: World Ruler
Castle Clash evokes strategy and hilarity that’s on par with what you’d find in Clash of Clans. This game has a high player base, which should wipe away anyone’s fears of not finding a match online. This is a mobile title that knows how to blend scheming and combat well.
The gameplay is fast-paced as it offers many creatures and heroes for you to recruit to your army. While warring with strangers online can be a fun time, Castle Clash offers different ways to play. If you’re someone who enjoys cooperative play, you can join others’ guilds and work together to defeat tough dungeon bosses.
Players may succumb to minor glitches and freezes if they play the title on weak hardware. The in-game purchases for Castle Clash may push some people away from it too. However, if you overlook those minor issues, you’ll enjoy what Castle Clash: World Ruler delivers.
Gods of Olympus
Gods of Olympus is an incredible strategy game where you’ll lead a band of noble gods against powerful foes. This game offers real-time combat and features iconic gods like Zeus, Aphrodite, Apollo, and Athena. This is a game that boasts astounding competitive and cooperative play.
The co-op involves you and your allies’ fleet defending cities from enemy attacks. It can get intense quickly, so it’s best to form sufficient strategies swiftly if you desire victory. What sets this apart from other games would be its phenomenal build times.
You no longer have to fret about crafting structures as they’ll be available to you instantly. This is an impressive change of pace and is one of many elements that keep people hooked. The character models and environments look almost toy-like, and the animation effects look decent for a mobile title.
Clash of Clans fans who are searching for another thrilling mobile game with great replay value should give Gods of Olympus a shot.
Transformers: Earth Wars
Ah, Transformers. A franchise that introduced many people to a cybernetic world full of talking robots who can transform into different objects. What started as a children’s show has evolved into something that spawned feature films, video games, and animated shows.
Transformers: Earth Wars is an invigorating stylized base-building game that’ll pique the interest of many people not just competitive Clash of Clans players. In it, players must side with the heroic Autobots or the evil Decepticons to decide Earth’s fate. This game has over 100 iconic Transformer-themed characters to collect.
From classic heroes like Optimus Prime to menacing villains like Megatron, this title feels like a love letter to many fandoms. Visually, its characters and maps look stunning. The biggest gripe many fans have would be in its collecting aspect as it’s tied to Earth Wars’s in-game purchases.
It can feel like a chore to play because of its high pay-to-win aspects. However, if you’re a diehard Transformer fan in need of a fun game to play, this one should satisfy you.
