Orcs and Knights square off against each other in Heroes of War: Orcs vs Knights, a game that combines a Warcraft like setting with the hugely popular Clash of Clans formula.


In the game players get to play on either side of the battle with each faction having unique units although this is more of a visual alteration than anything to keep the game balanced.

In terms of gameplay players will spend their time creating buildings, collecting the resources of oil and gold and then using these resources to raise an army for PvP raiding or the decently long campaign. All the usual guild and ranking systems are also present which encourage you to climb the ranks against thousands of other players.

If you’ve played any of the Clash of Clans clones out there you’ll breeze through the tutorial and quickly be able to enjoy the more advanced features of the game. In Heroes of War: Orcs vs Knights these advanced options include giving tactics to your troops mid battle to follow and a robust hero system (complete with a relic inventory system).


In addition to this greater control in combat Heroes of War: Orcs vs Knights allows you to call on your guild for help to speed up the build process and also provides players with a power rating based on a number of factors allowing for more easy comparison between players.

With the solid foundations of a mobile strategy game Heroes of War: Orcs vs Knights is definitely one of the better options if you are seeking something beyond Clash of Clans to play. It’s got more than enough troop variety and hero options to give you that sense of strategy that you crave.


  • Warcraft like theme that pits orcs against knights.
  • Fully fledged campaign to keep you busy.
  • Good troop variety and well-designed hero system.
  • Easily compare against others with a universal power rating.
  • Join guilds or rise through the ranks solo instead.
