Deconstructing "Clash of Clans 2: The Builder Base"

Recommended Posts

The Deconstructor of Fun blog has posted their latest design review. The blog breaks down successful free-to-play games in search of what makes them fun - or not - and this time they break down the popular mobile game Clash of Clans 2: The Builder Base by Supercell.


When the developers placed a mysterious new building on Clash of Clans bases, players were rightfully excited. The building - a capsized ship situated on the eastern shore -  was placed without context except for a small teaser video. For weeks, Supercell dripped additional clips, riling up the community which speculated wildly on what new features the vessel would unlock. But one thing was certain – that after almost 5 years since the game was released, it was getting the biggest update yet.

The breakdown looks at a comparison with the original Clash of Clans, including finding that CoC 2 is more like Clash Royale than CoC 1, followed by a look at the good design elements, the bad design elements, and the ugly - including a look at the business side of the CoC franchise.

      So I've been reading about and watching videos about Smalltalk. It seems like an interesting language and damn near the Father (or Godfather) of all things OOP. But it got me thinking, what languages should a programmer know or even be proficient in to be a dependable programmer (couldn't think of a better word than "dependable")? After giving it some thought, I came up with this list.
      At least 1 programming language from:
      Lisp family of languages ML family of languages Smalltalk family of languages And also the C programming language (not the family, just the language).
      I think this covers all facets of programming and ways of tackling problems. I don't think there's any other language, thinking most of the modern languages, that has done anything that 4 listed above haven't already done. I'm not counting languages like Julia, R, Perl, or Erlang, because they are languages, AFAIK, that seem to solve a very specific problem. They can be general purpose, but again, AFAIK, they're not meant to be.
      Of course, agreements, disagreements, thorough takedowns, and/or overall discussion are welcomed.

      Hi, my name is Alex Mars from sound design studio AK Audio.
      I am making sounds for the very interesting game that is a tower defense style. The game is about a fantasy world with magical creatures such as Golems, Gryphons, zombies, yetis and so on. I need to create an attack, spawn, and death sound for each creature. Most of the time I needed to record sounds with my voice. My voice mostly suits the sound for a gnome or an elf but not really for a huge angry creature. Yet every character sound is used with my processed voice.

      Another example of using Dehumaniser when making sound design for character called Wyvern.

      Hope you liked this tutorial. Please let me know if you have any questions.

                    We have developed a mobile game and everything is ready from tested builds, trailers, setting up of stores (iOS and Android) etc but we are confused in terms of whether there can be any legal complications. Game designing, development etc everything is done by us. The publication company role was to set the marketing platform for this game.
      Now this publication company is delaying the release month after month and the latest date which is proposed by them is January next year.
      We are thinking of self publishing but we are worried whether there can be any legal complications showing these profiles.
      What are the best possible ways for us to publish this game?
