Play Clash of Clans game on Android
Edited by Grimm, Vanessa, Eng, Inukshuk
Hi, you're watching VisiHow and today we are going to show you how to install and play the Clash of Clans game on your Android smart phone or Samsung Galaxy S5 or S5 mini smartphone. To start with, we're going to need to go to the Google Play Store, which is this icon here:
If you don't have the Google Play Store icon on your home screen - which you may not - you can simply tap on the Apps button which is this button here:
Taping on Apps will open up a list of your applications and you can scroll through until you can find Google Play Store, which for me is right here.
So, we're going to tap the Google Play store.
That's going to open up the Google Play store. And it's just going to ask us terms of service agreement. We can just accept that; that's fine.
And here you'll see we have the full US Google Play Store.
We're going to go ahead and search.
And we're just going to search for Clash of Clans.
So, let's start with 'C'
And see, it's the very first thing that comes up.
So we're going to go for Clash of Clans, and here is the Clash of Clans game at the top.
Just tap that one time.
As you can see I've already had it installed. But you go here and you would tap this green button which will install it.
Once it's installed, then you'll tap this green button to open it.
So we're going to tap the green button here.
This will open it for us. And this little girl is going to pop up here. She's going to say "Welcome, Chief, we've been waiting for you."
Go ahead and tap the screen to continue. She's going to let you know that this is your view village. Your new village - well, your new village isn't perfect, but she's saying to you that it would be great, it would be fantastic except for one problem. These guys, these ugly little green guys! These are the people who basically want to eat you and your village so you have to defend yourself to them.
And they're going to come and they're going to try to get you.
So, tap your screen. She's going to tell you, uh-oh we have a problem.
To start off with, you need to build up your village.
Right now, all you have is one army camp, one gold mine, one builder hut, and one little tiny house. So it's time to shop. Tap the shop button with the little arrows bouncing up and down.
Tap that, and what you need to do, you need to buy yourself a canon, okay?
Canons and goblins.
Alright, you gotta place your canon somewhere so it will protect your town hall.
So let's place it here, okay?
Now it's going to build that.
It takes one minute. So she's going to tell you that you should hurry it up and finish. You should spend your gems.
Now, honestly you shouldn't spend your gems.
You'll earn enough gems through the course of playing the game that you should never spend them on anything other than buying more of these builder huts. Because each time you buy a builder hut you get more - another building. And you can have multiple buildings being constructed at the same time. If you don't have a builder hut, what happens at the later levels in the game is that you end up having so much stuff, so much money, that you can't spend it all and people attack you and they just constantly take it and you will be frustrated and you will probably quit playing the game. We don't want to see you do that, we want you to have a good time. So, you got about six seconds left on this. Let's let the canon finish building itself. Also, the longer an item takes to build, the more gem you have to spend for it. And if you do decide to buy gems, buy as many as possible. The more you buy, the more you're saving. Although, they're still very expensive. Anyway, here we go. Goblin wants to attack.
You can click bring it on and you can get some goblin action.
Now they're going to come rushing in, they're going to try to attack your town hall and your cannon is going to start shooting them.
And bang, bang, bang and they're finished.
You have succeeded. So she's saying, you know what, that was actually kind of a close call you might want to do a little better next time.
So what do we need to do to do better next time?
So we built the village on a Ley line, which according to her give you lots of this purple magical stuff.
So, let's tap on that and we have some wizards here who are going to help us take out a goblin camp.
Let's attack those goblins.
Let's go get 'em. So, what we do here - it's our first battle - we tap our little guys and wherever we tap them they run off and they attack stuff.
So, let's show you how that works, okay?
If I attack over here, he's going to go over there and start attacking that.
If I tap over here with this guy, he's going to start attacking that.
All you need to do is blow up this town hall first to be able to succeed.
So, in theory, I could just put guys over here and they will blow up the town hall, but I want to blow up the canon, too.
The more people you have attacking something at the same time, the more damage they do.
You can also scroll around and see different things, and you get a bonus for destroying everything.
So, we destroyed three things.
Now we get a bonus for that.
Now let's click here "Return Home."
Each time you attack the troops, they disappear.
They're gone forever; you don't get those troops back, okay? So now, good job. You've got the goblins, you blew it up, now we need to fix your own village up.
To start with, we've got a red little icon gold.
Any time you've got a red icon on your resources, it means you can't get anymore and as you see here our gold is full.
So, we need to buy something else.
Now she's going to tell us let's go to the shop. We need a second builder. This is what we here. See, the only way you can get builders is with these gems.
That's why we didn't spend our gems earlier.
Let's get our second builder. And let's just put him wherever, it doesn't really matter.
Now we can build two things at once.
So we also need this green stuff because that's what the troops cost and serve the buildings. So let's tap here.
She's going to tell us to go back to buy some stuff.
We're going to have to buy this little elixir collector.
Alright, let's put that there.
Little check box to get that started.
Alright, and she wants us to speed it up, but I'm not going to do that.
And, let's see. It's getting better. Tap on the Builder's Hut.
How much time do we have here?
Okay, so there's 40 seconds for that. We're just going to have to wait. We're just going to have to wait. You can also, I guess during the tutorial you can't do anything. So we're just going to have to wait 40 seconds for this process to finish. Give it a few minutes. And we're at 24 seconds.
I will cut this out of the video most likely.
By the way, these little things here - you're trees, stones - each of these can be removed.
The stones, once they're removed, they never come back.
The trees, anything living, trees, flowers, plants, bushes, they all grow back.
So, as you're clearing things out, try and clear those things out first because they keep coming back and you keep getting rewards for cleaning them.
So the collector's done can only store a small amount of elixir.
We need to build another storage one so we can stockpile it.
So let's build this.
Let's put that over there.
That's our storage thing.
Again, she wants us to use the gem to boost that up. And as I mentioned previously, it's always a bad idea to use your gems. Now, likewise, as you're going around moving things, any time you have obstacles such as these stones and such, your enemy cannot place troops here that are attacking you.
So if someone decides to attack you from one of these angles, they can't attack here to put troops in.
On the bigger objects.
On the smaller stuff, they can put stuff around - the flowers and what have you.
But, it's hopeful. Many times, people will build walls and things in the corner or they'll move stuff.
For example you can tap something.
Okay, well apparently in this tutorial you can't. But generally, you can tap things and you can move them around. When you tap things and move them around, it allows you to relocate and restructure stuff as you move along. So now we've got our storage, which is basically like a bank for elixir.
Now we need to build one for gold, so let's take care of that.
Any time someone or something attacks your gold or your elixir, they can only take a certain percentage of it.
Depending on how heavily your village is attacked, you may or may not have a longer or shorter time before you can be attacked again. Likewise, you can use these gems to buy shields. Shields can protect you for a particular period time. Also, throughout the year the game runs specials where you can earn - you can buy things like speeding up your gold or your elixir production by a significant amount, for one gem or two gems or four gems or five gems versus the usually the thirty or fifty it can cost in higher levels. Likewise, along the top there, when you're building your army, you can speed up building an army. Now what that does is it allows you to attack considerably more. If you're using a high power or lost cost army, then and you're during one of those special periods, you can constantly attack people, and that's great. So, here comes goblins, they're saying they love gold.
So, we need an army.
So she's telling us we need to build a barracks.
This barracks will let us construct troops.
Let's put that out over here.
See how I'm moving that around?
You can move everything around in this game as you're moving along and playing.
It simply depends. And again, she's asking us to go ahead and put our one gem into building that, but as I said before, one of the purposes of this tutorial is to show you how to succeed in the game without actually spending a lot of money. So, as soon as the barracks are done, I'll come back to this. Okay our barracks has been constructed.
Now what we are going to do is train some troops.
So, tap your Train Troops and we can train some barbarians.
We can train maximum 20.
So, we're going to hold this down and train all 20 barbarians.
And, we can use gems to speed that up, or we can come back to this in six minutes.
As I said previously, do not waste your gems. So, we'll come back to this in what is it 6 minutes and 30 seconds. So, as you can see, we now have 20/20 troops.
And what we're going to do is click on the attack button, which is this button right here.
So, we're just going to tap that one time.
And that's going to bring up a window.
A 3 stars of 150 possible stars on our little goblin attack map.
And our goblin attack map goes way down here.
And it's pretty difficult to complete them all.
Anyway, we're going to attack this guy right here.
We have 20 barbarians to do it with.
The more stuff that we destroy, the more stars we get. Pretty straight forward. So, what do we have? First, you always look at the base that you're about to attack. You can also zoom out by pinching.
Now, as you can see, we've got a little archer tower here.
And we've got some buildings there.
So the thing we want to destroy is the chief hut, and it always gets us one star, but we want to destroy all this other stuff too.
So let's start out over here with a bunch of guys.
Those guys are all going to go over there and start mashing that stuff. And now let's send some guys in from the other side.
The reason for that is that sometimes, you'll end up with some group of guys who won't destroy as much or who might get sidetracked by an army and killed.
This way you're guaranteed to destroy everything. We got three stars. Complete victory. You're awesome!
Now you return home.
And you're little friend there is going to tell you that you did a good job, and now she's going to ask what you want your name to be.
So, now we're choosing a name.
So, pick a name and tap on Done.
There you go.
That simple. So, now she's telling you with the gold we took, we can upgrade the Town Hall.
So, you tap on the town hall and you say you want to upgrade it, okay?
It's going to cost 1000 golds; it's going to give you access to more buildings.
We are not going to do the Finish Now thing again.
We've already talked about that before. So we're going to have to wait just a minute. Unfortunately during the tutorial, none of these other buildings can actually be accessed or used, however if you want to collect gold, you just tap it. Take there's 20 gold.
You want to collect the elixir, you also just tap that.
There's a stock of the elixir there.
As a general rule, though, you will be able to tap things and select them and upgrade them as you're playing through the game. It's just in the tutorial that you're limited in the functionality you have. However, there is a method to our madness, as we discussed earlier. Okay, you see it says Train over top of here, but you still can't train.
So, if you're looking for new challenges to beat by tapping here.
Okay, we can tap here, and she'll give us a list of things.
As we do each of these things you can see we get 5 gems, 5 gems, 5 gems.
And these rewards continually go up as you do more of the challenges she asks you to.
So she's saying you know what you're doing and everyone's counting on you. Fantastic.
So the very first thing you want to do, take your army camp - I'm sorry - take your training place and train up a bunch of troops because you will be attacking again soon.
Then you want to take your army camp - this is one of the few buildings you can actually upgrade while other things are happening.
But, let's get started first by going to our shop.
And you can choose things.
You can choose treasure, you can choose resources, decorations, shields, defences, and armies.
This, however, is a subject for another video, which we'll get to next.
Make sure you check our other videos and thanks for using VisiHow. Have a great day!
