Clash of Clans has gone big to celebrate their tenth birthday with a Clash of Clans mockumentary being released that retcons the franchise back to the early 1980s and an arcade game called simply "Clash".

Of course, as fun as all that is, and the 20-minute plus mockumentary is certainly that, it isn't exactly true because Clash of Clans, the first Clash game, was released on August 2, 2012, on iOS (Android would have to wait until October 2013).

But while the conceit is fun there are actually some real things going on inside the game to celebrate the occasion with a number of characters getting an 8-bit makeover in honor of their "heritage", as well as a playable version of the "original" Clash as game-inside-a-game.

Click on it and the Clash arcade game will launch.

The game is a side-scroller with graphics mimicking that of an 8-bit arcade machine of the 80s. The game has three levels and is a nice change of pace from the strategic main game.

Clash Of Clans Arcade Game Cheats
