General Information
Title: Clash of Clans
Developer: Supercell
Rating: 9+
Description: Clash of Clans is an online multiplayer strategy game. Players build their village by purchasing items from the in-game shop using currencies such as gold, elixir, dark elixir and gems.

By upgrading their buildings, they unlock new items and expand their capabilities. Training troops (which can also be upgraded to give more damage and health) and attacking other players' villages gains the player additional resources to fund their village upgrades. They can also build and upgrade their village defenses to guard against attacks from other players. Clash of Clans is a freemium app; although free to download and play, players can pay real-world money to advance more rapidly.

Players can select how many of each type of troops they wish to train, all for the price of elixir or dark elixir. These troops can then be used to attack other players online to gain more gold, elixir and dark elixir. They can also be used to attack the NPC goblins in the single-player campaign portion of the game. The campaign mode offers gold and elixir to be raided, although players gain no trophies from destroying villages in this game mode. Although troops trained by the player appear in the village in special Army Camps, they will not defend the player's village. Only troops within the clan castle (which must be donated by fellow players) and heroes are able to protect your village.

Accumulating trophies is the end goal in the game. Although gold and elixir are important for players to build up their villages, a high trophy count can allow players into more "elite" clans. Higher trophies also lead to more lucrative rewards for winning battles.

Clash of Clans features limited cooperative play. Players may create and join clans of up to fifty players, with whom they can engage in social 'clan chat' and donate troops to each others' clan castles. They may also engage in clan wars with other clans for additional rewards.

There is also a region-based 'global chat' available to all players whether they are in a clan or not. Note that neither clan chat nor global chat is moderated, although players have the ability to 'mute' other players in global chat by reporting inappropriate behavior. Swearing is automatically restricted in global chat and a filter can be turned on for the clan chat. As clans themselves are limited to a small number of known players who are free to leave at their discretion (or be removed by the clan leadership), clan chat has fewer restrictions than global chat.

The game features very mild cartoon violence.
