If you’ve played Clash of Clans, or Hay Day you will be familiar with SuperCell. The company behind super hit games. Boom Beach is another super hit game made by the same company. For those who have played Clash of Clans, the Boom Beach will look pretty familiar to them. Boom Beach is a combat strategy game where player fights an epic war against the evil Blackguard. You get to storm the beach, take back the land invaded by the enemy forces and free the enslaved islanders. The fight becomes a race to harness the ancient powers hidden on the islands.
By using gunship and landing boats, you can deploy troops on the desired island and take out the enemy headquarter within the timeframe. Freeing islands rewards both immediate and long term resources. As a thank you for freedom, the islanders send gold to your island via boat. In addition, islands are constantly being taken back, giving you an opportunity to retake and earn additional supplies.
When you start off, you have an island where you have various buildings including your headquarter. You can build defensive buildings like sniper tower, mortar or machine guns. And similarly you have resource collecting buildings from where you get wood and gold. Unlike in Clash of Clans, you can’t purchase units here to enable you to build or upgrade multiple structures at once – you can only issue one construction command at a time. This slows the pace of Boom Beach down. And when you first begin playing, it’s very tempting to spend the premium currency (of diamonds) to speed things up.
I believe Boom Beach gives you considerable control and opportunity to think tactically about how to attack enemy base. With options of healing your forces with an area-of-effect medical kit or flare to give your troops in a specific direction, you feel that you aren’t completely at the mercy of the game’s Artificial Intelligence.
The game though lacks social interaction which I particularly liked about Clash of Clans. I am sure if some kind of social interaction is integrated into the current game, it will make Boom Beach a much more fun game to play.
The more you play Boom Beach, the more you get involved into the game. This game is definitely worth a shot!
