The exemplary use of shadows, blasting and fire effects, spell smoke, etc. are some of the other special effects that are attractive and enhance the overall gaming experience.

Sound 9/10

The sound effects and the background music tracks are as clear as a crystal. Also, the audio of the game manifolds the thrill during the attack and helps in bonding with the spell effects, kills, and destruction. The battle loop music is epic and encourages the gamers to stay focused on the screen. There is totally a different music track when only 60 seconds are remaining to end the battle. Same is the case when just 30 seconds are remaining to finish the attack. Also, there are different audio tracks to complement different windows such as menu, result screen, and tutorial.

Gameplay 8/10

The players of Clash Royale are ranked on the basis of their count of trophies and level. While trophies are won by winning multiplayer battles, level up takes place through donating and upgrading cards which are represented by playable units and spells. Players can construct a deck of cards before the attack with only 8 cards in it. These are then used in defending the royals from spells and attacks of the opponent. In the game, there are a total of four categories of cards – Rare, Legendary, Epic, and Common.
There is a currency in the game which lets the users purchase Gems from the card shop. More the gems more are the chances of players to enter into tournaments, purchase chests, etc. 

In the year 2016, the team of Supercell introduced Tournament feature in the game. Based on the performance in the tournament, players are rewarded with chests or special cards. In 2017, “League” made its way to the game. Once a player has more than 4,000 trophies, they can be placed into different forms of leagues, for instance, challenger to ultimate champion. 

Clash Royale offers 11 appealing battle arenas to choose from. These are Goblin Stadium, Legendary Arena, Hog Mountain, Barbarian Bowl, etc.

Lasting Appeal 9/10
