Game Perspective: Boom Beach After a Year

Boom-Beach

It has been a year since Boom Beach has been released by SuperCell. I guess it is just apt for us to look at the things on how the turned out after it was being dubbed as Clash of Clans copycat and competition withstanding the fact that it has been created by the same company. Well at first many of us even those who are authority when it comes to the gaming world the legitimacy of the game and its aim knowing the fact that COC is already making waves and tons of money with its allegedly 2 million US dollars revenue per day. In addition, things seem to be counter productive for the company making a new title that is and can be  a potential factor for lessening the player base of a well established game in Clash of Clans? After a year, I guess things have been clearer for us who where once a questioning mind to Boom Beach.

The gaming community November last year was kind of shock when they knew about the release of a new game by SuperCell. At first they were hyped up knowing the reputation that the company has already built on. After sometime, the gaming public realized that the game is quite similar to the Clash of Clans. In fact there are subtle differences. Not to mention that there are lots of features that are missing to the game that can potentially be a deal breaker for those who have fallen in love with a full bloom freemium base building strategy game. Despite all that has been said, Supercell came out strong and undaunted. They know that they have better plans and that it can turn the tables for them. Thus, the game continued to be available worldwide after some stint on its beta phase.

It is safe to say that the game pretty much negated all those who doubted it. Yes, it is somehow similar to Clash of Clans but ultimately there are features that makes it unique and gives fans a better gameplay as far as personal gaming experience is concern. The game is not there to compete with the its big brother but rather it is there to give fans an options to enjoy other games with the same feel while they wait on a lengthy battle of upgrades. Apart from that, it also has better implementation of the “Freemium” marketing scheme. And lastly the game is there for future proofing of the company. They know that somehow Clash of Clans will be dead soon.
