Clash of Phoenix is a Clash of Clans clone that’s been on the App Store for months. It’s not very good, but it has over 5 million downloads, so I guess it must be doing something right. For those who are unfamiliar with how these things work, the game costs absolutely nothing to download, but there are tons of in-app purchases inside that will cost you anywhere between 99 cents and $99.99 per item. If you’re not careful, your credit card could end up being charged hundreds of dollars without your knowledge.

Clash of Phoenix is basically Clash of Clans with a different coat of paint and a phoenix instead of an elf that blows up your structures. You can build your base, train your troops, and battle with players from around the world just like you would in Clash of Clans. There are even special buildings to build and upgrade using “gems,” so familiar if you’ve ever played any freemium game on the App Store.


What is a clash of the phoenix app?

And yet, for some reason, people keep downloading this thing. I have to assume it’s because they’ve never played a mobile strategy game before and don’t know what they’re getting themselves into. If that doesn’t describe you, then read on. We’re going to go over how this game works and what you can do to maximize your enjoyment.

Nope. But hey, if the gameplay is good enough it doesn’t matter what’s on the surface! Protecting your base with cannons and mortars is fun, right? And so is training up an army of dragons to invade your friends’ bases.

To be honest, I’ve played this game for about five minutes and that’s enough to convince me that it’s not worth my time or money. There are too many basic errors with the game design, like how you can’t train new troops unless you’re standing next to the barracks where they’re created, and how the game only runs when you’re in it.

Clash of Phoenix has better graphics than Clash of Clans?

No, that’s not what I meant by “design.” It’s just that everything is extremely slow in comparison to games like CoC or Boom Beach. But it seems like the game runs smoothly enough…

Okay, so now that we’ve discussed how it plays, let’s move on to some tips and tricks you can use to really get the most out of Clash of Phoenix.

Tips & Tricks for This Game:

  1. Don’t pay any money
  2. Protect your buildings with cannons
  3. Don’t bother upgrading buildings, just buy items from the shop with gems
  4. There is no reason to fight off other players’ attacks, as they can’t win due to the way the player strength is calculated
  5. You will never beat this game and it’s not worth your time or money
