Clash Royale is a mobile deck builder game created by a finished game development company, Supercell. Supercell is a very prominent mobile game development company, having released multiple massively downloaded and played games, like Clash of Clans and Boom Beach. Clash Royale recently had its 6th birthday, having been created on March 2nd, 2016. While this may not seem very unusual for a videogame to be played years after its release, it’s completely different for mobile games. 

Clash Royale is one of the most addicting mobile games out there. During my school day, there are many times where I’ll have a free period, or a spare 20 minutes where I have nothing to do. When that happens, I almost always load up Clash Royale and start a game. In the game there is a massive layer of strategy. In the game’s most common game mode, you have to create your own deck from the game’s massive collection of cards. Not only that, but you have to manage the level of the cards, and upgrade them as you advance to higher levels of competition.

Clash Royale’s best, and most addicting feature though, is the ability to play against your friends. Everyday me and my friends have competitions inside the game, playing against each other in 1v1, or 2v2 game modes. These modes are the most fun, and make the game so much better. Playing with your friends makes the game better, and more addicting. Jamie Bender said, “Playing against other players and destroying their dreams of reaching 5k trophies makes me happy.” Trophies are Clash Royale’s ingame ranking system. Clash Royale is an amazing mobile game that provides many hours of entertainment.
