Even if you’re one of the players that got hooked by this extremely popular game, it’s impossible not to hear about it at least. This MMO game is available both for iOS and for Android and it belongs to the list of the longest running and most popular smartphone games. In the beginning it was released only in the USA and Canada, back in 2012, but now people worldwide are playing it. But how did they do it?

The Secret of Success

From what we gathered until now, the secret of success is keeping the user satisfied. The experience of playing the game is quite satisfying. Throughout the years, it received lots of good reviews from critics, while continuously introducing new options and features for players.

You can play the game either in single or multiplayer mode. However, there is a catch with this game: it relies simultaneously on both modes, not just on one part. Moreover, you can even choose to play outside these two modes, which allows for more freedom and flexibility for the users. And let’s face it, we all need this when playing something.

Flexibility Is the Answer

Dota 2 is yet another successful product among gamers, and it even has tournaments. But it’s on the PC, while Clash of Clans is only for smartphones. The paradox here is that the game is completely free to play, and yet Supercell, the developer of the game, cashes in millions of dollars from this game alone. Yet again, flexibility is the answer here. You can play for free, but you can also make some in-game purchases, such as “gems” that act as boosts for your play.

Moreover, another thing that people like most is the simplicity of the gameplay. It has an easy to use interface, plus you understand soon what you need to do.
