A new strategy game has been released and you can expect people to be walking around and holding up their phones in search of new Augmented Reality games.
In 2016 Pokemon Go reignited the Japanese icon when the geolocation game came to Ireland and had people of all ages walking around trying to find the little creatures. It got people off the couches but not away from their screens. The game involves people loading up their app and then using the camera on the smartphone to locate these figures and capturing them. The more rare creatures created quite a stir with people abandoning their cars to chase them.

Who stands behind this game and why its release could become a groundbreaking moment for mobile games?
Elyland LLC is not a newcomer: the company has more than 10 years of experience in game development and has already successfully launched one AR game - Draconius GO, which in some opinions was even better than Pokemon GO (Forbes). It even provoked a conflict between Niantic, Inc. and Elyland LLC (Forbes).
What’s so noteworthy?
Clash & GO combines a fun geolocation game in augmented reality (AR) and an epic city-building strategy game with real-time battles. Simply put - the game combines Clash of Clans with Pokémon GO (Gotta be Mobile)
In a city-building strategy genre the game competes with Clash of Clans, and in AR geolocation genre the rival is Pokemon GO. By combining killer features of both genres (and by being the first to offer players such as fusion) Clash & GO is able to bring the gameplay to a whole new level.
Advantages over strategy games:
- Clash & GO is a truly open world geolocation game. The game area is as big as planet Earth itself. No other Base Building mobile game has ever offered anything like this before.
- Players can go out and explore the AR map, collect resources and other rewards. They can attack geo-objects controlled by other players or capture unoccupied ones while meeting new people doing the same.
Advantages over GO games
- Complex and deep gameplay including developing player’s base, training troops and then engaging in tower defense battles with other players.
- Full-fledged RPG system. Players’ Heroes earn experience in rating battles against other players (PvP) and possess an expanded set of skills and modules.
- Rich social interaction is provided by group tasks, clans, and chats created to cater to the need for communication.
Clash & GO is based on the Elyland company-owned engine tested on more than one million Draconius GO players, so the game should be really fun and stable.

Elyland decided to go even further and integrate blockchain technologies in Clash & GO.
Where is the blockchain?
Blockchain provides transparency, security, and immutability.
CGO tokens are like a superpower that allows you to manipulate the Clash & GO augmented world, making it different for other players as well. Such a power should not be used irresponsibly. Everyday, a report will be created, which includes: distribution of tokens on in-game wallets, token transactions inside the game, received revenue to be spend on burning tokens, token sales on the in-game auction, etc.
Since blockchain token is based on money, it is the most adequate tool for balancing the changes in the world of Clash & GO augmented reality.
Another Blockchain advantage for Clash & GO is Ethereum smart contracts that guarantee that the number of tokens from delayed emission for the in-game auction will not be altered.
And the last one, Blockchain gives an ability to run an initial coin offering (ICO) to acquire investments for huge marketing campaigns (VentureBeat).
By combining two of the most popular mobile games by Sensor Tower research (Clash of Clans and Pokémon GO) in 2018 Elyland have created a completely new genre - AR mobile strategy.
Taking into consideration Elyland’s experience with AR game Draconius GO and more than 77 million players total in previous projects, there is no doubt that Clash & GO will be a high quality viable product. This project also received huge buzz thanks to integrated Blockchain and launched ICO to acquire a huge $25,000,000 marketing budget (ICO.clashgo.com).
