Base-building is a subgenre of real-time strategy games, wherein the player builds a base that serves a particular purpose and function. In base-building games, the player’s base is a core part of the gameplay. For example, the base may be important to the player’s survival because of the protection it provides, or the player may need to reinforce and defend his home base against enemy attack. Additionally, some base-building games may make the player's ultimate goal to destroy the enemy's home base.


Did you know that Clash of Clans is the fifth highest grossing mobile games of all time? The goal of the game’s developers, the Finnish gaming company Supercell, is to build games that people will play for years, and Clash of Clans is a testament to that. First launched in 2012, the strategy game is still going strong. It is still ranked as one of the top free games of today, with an estimated daily revenue of $494,788 in 2018. At its peak, the game was raking in over $5 million daily. The game's success can be attributed to its highly-addictive gameplay, wherein the player fortifies his base to defend it from enemy attack, and attacking other bases to get resources.

    "This game is based of the Roman Empire which made it unique and interesting. I like to play online matched with others and defeat them. The fighting was good provided you took the time to train your troops. I had to upgrade my city and I also put traps in for the invaders. Very satisfying to go on campaigns and come back a winner and add to my city."
