Bushra’s Note

Pokémon  Go and Clash Royale were the blockbuster games of previous year. It had taken the gamers by storm. But, reportedly. Monster Strike was the No. 1 mobile game with $1.3 billion in revenue. Ever since I have switched to android phone  I am hooked on to the latest sensation – Clash Royale. This is a PVP (Player vs Player) game wherein  you need to strategise to save your tower in online battle arena. This game by Supercell is my current favorite. I masquerade as Dark Veil to defend Crown Tower in online battles, collect cards and build clans. Which is yours??
