Clash Royale – Gameplay

Clash Royale, developed by Supercell who are also the creators of Clash of Clans, is one such real-time head-to-head clash video game that is set in a Clash universe. One of the main reasons for its popularity is that it provides you an online multiplayer battle arena allowing players to play with their friends and other online players all around the globe.

Clash Royale is one of those tower rush games where the sole motive of a player is to destroy the most towers of the opposing team or player within the 3-minute match. You will be named the ultimate winner if you succeed in destroying the King’s Tower.

After this time is over, players are given a 2-minute overtime period if the match resulted in no or an equal number of crowns. If no tower destruction takes place in the overtime period either, then all of the towers lose their health and the tower with minimum health is destroyed automatically.

  • Allows two or four players (1v1 or 2v2)

  • Earn crowns by destroying the opponent’s towers
  • To beat the opponent, construct your battle deck
  • To earn big rewards, take daily or weekly quests
