The Battle of Polytopia is a turn based strategic adventure. It's a game about ruling the world, fighting evil AI tribes, discovering new lands and mastering new technologies.
Auto generated maps make each game a new experience, with unlimited replay value.
Pick and choose among different tribes. Wander in the dark cold forests of Barduria, explore the steamy Kickoo jungles or claim the lush field of the Imperius empire.

Polytopia is the first game from the indie game studio Midjiwan, based in Stockholm, Sweden.

If you like Sid Meier's Civilization games but you don't have fifteen spare hours to commit to a game, then this is the alternative you're looking for. All the fun of global expansion and domination, compacted down into a nice mobile platform that can be played in less than an hour depending on how big you choose. My average games run anywhere from ten minutes to 90. Always fun, simple enough while still being interesting. I can't recommend this game enough. Full Review

Great game. I am so glad they've finally made a CIV game for my phone and that does not cost a fortune to purchase initially. I am not too happy about the large amount they charge for every individual race though. Some variation would be nice (different units for each race, a buy all option for a more reasonable price, different game modes...). Lot of room to grow like the civ games but great start.

This is an easy to learn, turn-based strategy game with cute graphics, simple controls, accurate AI, few glitches, and awesome gameplay. In the Battle of Polytopia, you can play in two ways- Perfectionist, for the pacifists, has players competing to construct the best city. There is also Domination, in which players fight to conquer every city. I loved this game, and am very tempted to buy a few add-ons! This is the perfect casual game for the aspiring strategist.

Really nice game, the design is cute and the gameplay is well thought out. I've never experienced any crashes. Am buying all the tribes little by little. I'm SO happy there are no ads in this game, paying for extra content is fine by me. 1€ for a new tribe and extra hours of fun is not much when you consider the prices we pay for our smartphones and other apps or games... Thumbs up to the dev! Full Review

Audio glitch every time it opens - great game concept I find it's the next greatest chess game. I personally don't know how anyone can get more than 30k points so I guess I need to keep playing. Or maybe everyone on the leader boards are playing on easy mode but it's never specified Full Review

Great game! I just wiah that there was some sort of team battle or a diffrent gamemode. Also I wish that ther was some sort of way to unlock some clans without buying them. Like if you comeplete something or play enough games then a random locked tribe will battle you in a 1v1. If you win then you would unlock set clan forever. Bot if you lose then they would walk away and you will have to try again some time. I hope you add a mexhanic like this. Otherwise really fun game Full Review

Pretty good. I realize it's meant to be quick and simple so I won't go into a wish list of features except WHERE IS ONLINE MULTIPLAY. It's the one thing I want in my strategy games. Pick a friend to play, not auto match and NOT PASS AND PLAY Full Review

Loved this game so much!!! Basically a Civ lite, loved having this available on my phone. Provides plenty of challenge and cute graphics, my favorite combo! I really loved that the only thing you pay for is optional additional civs/races to choose from. This is not a pay to play the game, it's a true test of skill. Highly recommend it! Full Review

This game is amazing. Similar to Civilization 1-5, but has it's own twist. The graphics were cute, which I liked. The game didn't have gore, so playing with my family is fun! The only thing I'd complain about is the technology page. Please add more technologies! Anyway, thanks for being great devs! P.S. this was worth my money. Full Review

It's quite nice, but I do wish that every tribe felt more unique. A starting tech difference and resource discrepancy is quite droll in my view. A unique ability, even if basic (ex: 1 extra movement on road, cities start with 1 population, etc.) would vastly add the replayability to the game. Full Review

Good for a quick fix but too expensive to unlock the rest of the game. Nearly $14 to unlock the rest of the tribes and additional difficulty levels. Game is fun for a while but once you figure out the tactics you can just rinse/repeat to win every time. Needs more variance between tribes to make different tactics viable. Needs bigger maps. Needs to either charge less for the unlocks or charge maybe $5 up front for the entire game. I'm about done playing it. Full Review

Probably sunk a hundred hours + into this game, and about 20$ in unlocking all races. Love the challenge it brings when first learning the ropes but would more of a challenge for experienced players. Also some significant differences between races (like the new Ocean race) would be awesome Full Review

Simplified, streamlined Civilization gameplay with cute bit graphics. 1* awarded for the fact alone that it doesn't pester the user with ads, everything gameplay relevant seems to be accessible without pay walls. Didn't even find IAPs beyond t-shirt merchandise. Neat multiplayer "hotseat" mode. Not 5* merely due to the fact that it doesn't hook me for longer periods of time - then again, that's the point of many mobile games I have gathered (giving you short bursts of entertainment), so this is a purely subjective not-full-stars rating. If you prefer such games, feel free to add an imaginary star to this review ;) Full Review

A wonderful distillation of 4X games. No tutorial--a bold move. I'm pretty well-versed in 4X strategy, so I figured out most features pretty quickly (zones of control, etc.). I enjoyed figuring it out, but it could be very frustrating if you want to be good right when you pick it up. Full Review

This is by far the best strategic game I have ever played! With the many different tribes, I can play The Battle of Polytopia in different unique styles, and different troops have dofferent functions that make it challenging and very fun at the same time. In the past, people might think of Chess but grab The Battle of Polytopia, its free! Full Review

It's so good! But i have some some suggestions. Firstly make more balanced because the super unit gets more Heath everytime it gets played. secondly fix the omaji faces. They look so weird with the left eye. Lasty make the game full free and then add ads so you get paid. Good game. Good concept Yay Full Review

This game is like digital heroin. Initially there may have been a chance at avoiding its grasp, but after the second use I find myself hopelessly enveloped in its digital clutches. I promised myself I wouldn't spend money on a mobile game, but somehow I've ended up owning all the tribes. Respect to the developer, you've sypihoed hours of my life away with your simple yet oh so challenging game design. Full Review

This is hands down the best game for your phone. I've spent hours playing since I downloaded. It is wonderful and beautiful. You can put it down to do other things and pick it up without being lost. You can play offline. It doesn't drain your battery and the characters are just fantastically designed. The developer is very active on Facebook and Reddit, too. I highly recommend this game.

I love this game so so much. I love that they're still adding new tribes, I love every update and the balance changes that come with them they are always well thought out. My gf doesnt even like strategy games and she likes playing against me on this. Play this game! Full Review

I love this game, and it's a mobile alternative to Civilization. There are some things that could be done to improve the experience of the game. 1) When playing multiplayer, show the name of the player instead of "Bardour", for example. One of my friends had become confused on who was who in a three way game. 2) In landscape mode, have the buttons smaller and the shades at the top and bottom of the screen less intense (or more transparent, you get it). It takes up a lot of space on the screen. If you could possibly add an online multiplayer feature, that'd be brilliant! Full Review

It's a great game endless fun words cant describe how much I love this game. I can't wait to get new tribes thank you. I can win crazy 9 people, can you make a mode where the ai has an unfair advantage to make it harder? Like 1.5 more stars per round, or give them 2 cities to start. Full Review

Hands-down the best strategy game I have played on mobile! Very addictive and challenging -- depending on difficulty, battles can range anywhere from 15 to 50 minutes. Besides additional tribes, everything is free-to-play with absolutely no freemium-type "energy" systems. Highly recommended ☑️ Full Review

Super fun game. Auto generated terrain is an awesome feature. I would love to see bigger maps, but as is, the games last about 30 to 40 minutes. Perfect for a quick(ish) match. Looking forward to seeing this game evolve. Update: as much as I love the mechanics of this game, I've found a glaring weak point. Unless you become very dominant early on in a round, it tends to turn into a gritty stalemate where you're losing as many units as you're producing each turn. This is especially frustrating when a cpu can afford to churn out 6 to 8 catapults each round and even a super unit becomes essentially useless. This aspect alone reduces the replay value for me.

Seriously addicting for those who enjoy Civ-like games. The skill levels need much finer gradations though. The jump from easy to "normal" is too far, especially when you get a map with too much water. If that problem gets fixed, I would be willing to pay for some of the paid content. Full Review

I don't give 5 star reviews unless I seriously like the app, but this game is amazing. I don't know why it's free, but you should download it while it still is! They could honestly charge $5 and I would buy it, this is a really great strategy game! Full Review

I usually don't write review but this game is so good. Everything is amazing, the concept, strategy, graphic... One thing I recommend for future updates is adding campaign for each tribe, that will make it worth more to buy new tribes. Full Review

I have been playing for a few months and since I first opened it I have had no interest in other games. Graphics and simplicity are great. The only change I desire is growth. More tribes, more tech, bigger maps. Then I could spend 3 hours playing one game as opposed to four or five. Full Review

The game itself is excellent, feels like a basic version of civ V, but the small map and the colours keep it back from 5* The map size is obvious, but the colours have no blending whatsoever so the land is just a mess of colours, to the point where I would actually call it ugly. A graphics revamp would be needed, but the low poly style is nice. Full Review

Nice basic game. The in-game rating system is severely skewed to keep you under the 3 star maximum you can earn. Would like cities further apart so when you increase your borders, you don't gobble up territory that should belong to an unclaimed city. Or make the immediate territory surrounding an unclaimed city immune to border expansion. Would like increased map size and up to 6 enemy AI's on a map. Would like victory conditions to be customizable. I also purchased Luxidor but without a workshop and a native tech, it isn't worth it. It can be resource matched by other races in only one turn. Keep up the good work. Full Review

Perfect. Some things just need balanced. Like how my friend and I will get on an island with almost no resources and one or two towns. While our third friend has everything and by the time we get off the island. He has the rest of the map covered. And also how boats are over powered Full Review

I've put more money into this game than alot of my computer games. Please give us a free premium civ if youve bought all the civs. NEEDS BIGGER MAP!!!! Needs one more bigger map and the ability to create scenarios. I want to play vs 1 comp on a massive map Full Review

Love this app! The only thing is, I hate they force those who don't pay to only four races. It gets boring. Really hope they let people unlock races through various gameplay in the future. Full Review

It is so great! Its like civilization on gadget but much simplier, what i say to dev to make the game more interesting is make the difficulty much higher but not too high, we dont want fighting a face with catapult army on all tiles! And make the multiplayer happen! At least local, passing device is not really that great imo Full Review

Probably a best game on the entire store! I love how fun it is! There is no punishment for not buying microtransactions either! For example you have everything unlocked, except few civilisations which are not expensive i assume, if i has a cresit card i would buy them all just to support devs like you

I loved this game, I played it so much. The thing though that most put me off is was that it became really repetitive. This was because the tribes you start with get boring fast, then all the good ones are money and not that little ether considering it is just for one tribe. Full Review

The game is a little slow when playing with my friend. Like chess, there is timer we should follow when the match ongoing. So, I suggest it could be better when this game has time for every turn or whatever the editor like it. Full Review

The only game I've been playing for 2 years. Never gets tiring and with all this work being made by one developer is insane. Desrves way more popularity and I wish the one man team their best! Can't wait to buy the rest of the new tribes. Full Review

Great game and well woth downloading. Although I would like to see the map be able to be larger than 324 tiles because when you have 10 players it gets crowded. and I saw a few reviews suggesting being able to trade and also a custom map idea and I agree with these and think it would make an excellent improvement to the game!

Please add more tiles per enemy tribes, I'm sick of fighting 8 others in 324 tiles. Also add more enemy selections 9+ so the wars can be better. Overall good game. Full Review

Best F2P strategy game on mobile. Think a faster playing, less complex version of Civilization. No annoying timers or ads. Extra civs cost cash but are completely unnecessary other than to support the creator (which you should if enjoyed.) Full Review
