Gameplay Basics

Since this is targeted for mobile devices, the gameplay is very simple. You build up your base, and train troops to attack other bases. When scouting for enemy bases, you can choose to deploy your troops anywhere outside the vicinity of their base.

Ideally, you will want to have a diverse set of troops to deal with different things such as enemy troops, enemy turrets and buildings. When you successfully defeat their base, you gain resources and glory points. You can use those to resources to build up an even stronger army or base.

Currency

Gold - The main currency for upgrading buildings and hiring troops.

Oil - Used for upgrading buildings.

Gem - The real money currency. This is your pay to win solution.

Buildings and Troops

I am going to give you a breakdown of the different buildings and troops that you can build and train.

Buildings

Command Center - The heart of the base. Destroying the enemy Command Center ensures victory in combat. Place your Command Center in the middle of your base and protect it in every way possible. Upgrading the Command Center will give you access to new buildings.

Note: Try to build walls to protect it for defense and also place turrets around it for maximum protection.

Clan HQ - Troops that are sent by the members of your clan are located here. These troops can attack or defend. Upgrade the Clan HQ to increase its capacity.

Gold Mine - This generates gold for you. Upgrading it increases gold generation rate.

Gold Storage - This hold the maximum amount of gold for you. Upgrading it increases the gold capacity.

Oil Mine - This generates oil. Upgrading it increases oil generation rate.

Oil Storage - This hold the maximum amount of oil for you. Upgrading it increases the oil capacity.

Worker's Hut - This is your builder. Having more of this allows you to build more buildings at any given time. 3 builders will allow you to build 3 buildings at once. This increases your efficiency.

Barracks - You train your troops here. Upgrading it unlocks new units.

Rally Point - This holds your troops. Upgrading it increases the maximum capacity.

Lab - The Lab lets you upgrade your Troops and their support. Upgrade the Lab to get more options.

Note: This is your most basic defense building.
