Clash of Clans for Android

Clash of Clans, a massively popular game for iOS, has found its way to Android today. Players build up settlements, gather resources, train troops, wage war against goblins and rival players alike, and complete missions.

Like most casual games, you get rewarded for just showing up, but there are real-time strategy elements too, such as creating base defenses, and figuring out troop placement when launching attacks. The Android version even includes all of the latest Hallowe'en-themed content. Of course, you'll find the usual free-to-play trappings here, such as lengthy timers for completing tasks and premium currency to skip those waits. 

The developer, Supercell, is a pretty big deal. Despite having only two titles to their name, their mobile revenues rival EA. Despite being a two-year-old game, Clash of Clans is a top grossing title on iOS, second only to Candy Crush Saga. Why Supercell has decided to launch on Android now after having been so successful elsewhere is a tough call, but it's great news for gamers that have been itching to play Clash of Clans for so long.
