Vikings in everything they do love conforming to the society’s rules and underlying values, when one or more strays, Vikings instantly bestow upon themselves supernatural powers that make them law enforcement agents, judges, jury and executioners in hunting down and punishing all those who stray from the right path. The fight between the good and the bad encompasses everything that gamers will find in this game for gamers who prefer warfare themed video games.
Vikings: War of Clans is a warfare themed game that focuses on the following elements:
Base Building– start by building your own village including your palace and army barracks.
Military Training– you need to mobilise and train your soldiers.
Diplomacy– even with your army, you still need to join hands with other clans for support in future battles.
Warfare– at the end, you will have to engage in battles in order to save your village from conquest as well as battling to conquer other territories.
Upon entry, you’ll join Vikings: War of Clans inheriting the role of Jaul. As Jaul, you are the leader of your clan and it’s your responsibility to build the village that will house the clan. Jaul is also tasked with training the clan’s soldiers so that they can protect the village from intruders. This game is deceptively simple making many think that it is easy to mobilise resources and build a village, but if you are not strategic enough, you will fail to fill up the progression bars.
Once you complete mobilising resources and building a city, the game takes a twist presenting you with a world map that introduces other villages and clans. Jaul has two options in seeking alliances with other clans and he can do so by simply approaching the clans he wants to build alliances with or he can use a set of coordinates to find a specific clan and approach the leader to set up an alliance.
While the above at best is described as diplomacy, that is, seeking of alliances diplomatically through talks, Jaul can also use force through waging war against other clans. When Jaul opts to go this route to attack another clan and is victorious, he may keep the leader of that clan in place and use him as his puppet or he can take full control of the clan and head it himself.
Vikings: War of Clans is packed with 3D graphics for a magnificently realistic feel. The visual presentation of this game is highly impressive, and it’s clear that developer, Plarium, took its time to create realistic visuals showing villages under construction with individuals moving up and down, houses, mines, mountains, plains, military barracks and regiments.
