Clash of Clans (CoC) is a very popular, free-to-play strategy game from the Massively Multiplayer Online Game genre. Developed by Supercell for iOS and Android platforms, the first version of Clash of Clans was released in 2012 and has been available in Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store ever since. Today, there have been countless updates to keep Clash of Clans user friendly and fun for all players.
The main objective in the game is to keep upgrading your City Hall to a higher level. To do so, you will need to mine for gold and (dark-)elixir, valuable raw materials that will help you build, train your soldiers and plunder neighbouring clans and villages. All that plundering comes with a price, so you’ll need to invest your raw materials into defence as well. You can also earn trophies each time you win a ‘war’ against other clans. Or you can work together with other players and build your own clan to become even stronger!
Besides gold, elixir and dark-elixir there’s also an in-game currency that can help you with building, upgrading and gaining more raw materials, just to name a few. This currency is called Gems and you earn them by reaching a certain level, completing a task or conquering obstacles. But by far the best way to obtain Gems is by making in-app purchases, by using Google Play or Apple Gift Cards for example.
