Best Base Building Games and Kingdom Building Games
1. Boom Beach
Boom Beach is another kingdom building game on mobile. Your goal here is to build a base along a beach.
Your opponents must then storm the beach and take down your defenses. Unlike most games like Clash of Clans, this one actually has a fairly long campaign mode.
That adds another element of gameplay that most titles in this genre don’t have. Add to that the multiplayer along with co-op missions and this one is deeper than most.
It’s by Supercell and thus, it’s really appropriate that a good Clash of Clans style game is by the same developer.
2. Cities: Skylines
Cities: Skylines is as versatile as they come, with virtually any city design being possible with a bit of thought.
If there’s a price to pay for this, it’s that it’s very sandboxy to play, without many definite objectives in sight.
But if that’s an issue for you, or if you find you’ve reached your appetite for the possibilities of the base game, there’s such a vast catalog of official DLC and community-built mods, that you’re never going to run out of new ways to build.
Frostpunk is a gorgeous punch to the gut. You’re in a steampunkish, Victorian setting that’s so well-realized that it avoids the usual cogs-and-twee-banter cringiness of the subgenre, and you’re in big trouble.
The world is getting colder and colder at a terrifying rate, and somehow you’ve got to build a city that can survive it, using whatever labour force you can scrounge from the devastation around you.
The sense of dread and desperation is relentless, but that makes the moments of progress and achievement all the sweeter.
From the story and gameplay to the graphics and audio, this game truly sucks you in.
Whether you’re chasing food fish near the surface or you’re 2 miles down and frantically swimming away from deep-sea monsters so big that they would make a blue whale panic.
Every aspect of this game is so well thought out – despite being in early access – that this could truly become a game that lives for a much longer time than its price tag would suggest.
5. Castle Clash
Heroes of the Empire is one of the more popular games like Clash of Clans. It boasts over 50 million installs.
With this game, you’ll build a village, defend it, and take on opponents. However, you can also level up your heroes and battle them against other heroes, play co-op with Team Dungeons, and a few other things.
This one does a better job of standing out from the pack than most of its competitors.
It’s a freemium game like the rest of them and it’s a great game if you liked Clash of Clans, but wanted something more well-rounded.
It was called Castle Clash: Age of Legends and Castle Clash: Brave Squads at one point. However, we’re guessing they updated the game enough to warrant a name change.
Trove is a free building game and sandbox MMORPG featuring countless realms and biomes. It is an open-ended adventure from Trion Worlds that lets you build to your heart’s content.
First, you need to get your cornerstone–your home base that you take from world to world–up to scratch.
You can craft new weapons, creatures, and environments when you are not tricking out your home with the help of the many Trove mods and Trove console commands.
7. Clash of Lords 1 and 2
Clash of Lords is IGG.com’s Clash of Clans clone. It plays better than average, but we wouldn’t classify it as great.
The game features a variety of heroes and troops that you can pair together for extra buffs. The game also has guilds, tons of upgrades, and online combat.
There are two games in the series, but people seem to like the first one better than the second one because the second one got a little greedy with its microtransactions.
Still, the games are more polished than most clones in the Play Store. We recommend the first one over the second one.
8. 7 Days to Die
The game is less about players vs. zombies but players vs. starvation as food is super-scarce. Anything you find and try to not eat poisons you, (even if you cook it!) making you even more hungry and leaving you sick on top.
When building your base, you start with low-quality materials, and you can upgrade them with new materials as you go instead of having to remove them to replace them with better ones.
Factorio players will be happy to learn that this article was entirely automated using a series of conveyor belts and mechanical grabbers.
If you are yet to delve into the world of Factorio, get ready to book two weeks off of work as you build an enormous factory with the aim of building a shiny rocket.
You harvest resources to feed a continually expanding factory. Researching unlocks new facilities, appliances, conveyor belts, and alien technology.
It sounds simple. In practice, your first base will become a twisting maze of spaghetti-like mechanical arms, pipes, and sorters powered using a variety of energy sources and protected with giant weaponry.
