Players looking for their Clash of Clans fix while on Facebook can now play Vikings Gone Wild from Everyday iPlay. The game sees players controlling their own village of vikings, recruiting troops and sending them into battle against rival clans. The game resembles Supercell’s Clash of Clans both in its general gameplay design and even in some of its menu interface designs.
Players start with a small village, creating beer in factories which can then be used to recruit additional viking warriors. Archers, warriors, bear riders and wall breakers are available at first, with stronger vikings requiring more beer to recruit. Players can only store a limited amount of beer, introducing an update system to the game.
Before upgrading the game’s storage system, players will need to upgrade the town hall. A larger town hall gives players access to larger recruitment buildings, homes and so on, in a cycle of growth that can be completed faster by spending premium currency (and eventually real money).
Players can only take a limited number of soldiers into battle, and can then choose how many troops to actually deploy onto the field. Troops attack automatically, depending on which item they’re closest to, and players earn rewards for each success. Quests will guide players through these battles, and through specific tasks back home.
For social play, Vikings Gone Wild supports an in-game chat system and encourages players to join guilds of like minded players for additional content. The game was released in late August, and has climbed to 126,000 monthly active players, according to our app tracking service AppData. Vikings Gone Wild is now available to play for free on Facebook.
