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.
Beat your friends in online battles and compete on the global high score list.
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.

What our players are saying:

"I just can't get over how perfect this game is. It is a wonderfuly unexpected gem. The only thing that I could critique is the price(it's too low)."

"It's mixture of simplicity and strategy are that of straight up brilliance."

"It’s a great city building game that’s free of the shackles of “freemium,” and every strategy fan owes it to themselves to give it a shot at some point."
Touch Arcade (Chris Carter)

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

What's New

Version 1.10.1

-Fixed a bug that caused some multiplayer games to stop working.

After months of testing and blisters on my keyboard fingers it is finally here:
Challenge your friends and enemies in ONLINE MULTIPLAYER games!
-Works cross platform (Android & iOS)
-Free for anyone who has purchased any of the paid tribes.
-Up to 12 Players in each game.

We are also sporting an updated UI that looks a lot more squoochie and wimbiewoo.
Full resolution support for all devices, including iPhone X.

This is the first take on online multiplayer and I have lots of cool things I want to add to it in the future. Midjiwan is basically a one man operation so development will take some time. In the meantime, play nice!

Easily a five if...


The game has a lot of great things I've been playing for a long time off and on I'll download it play it for a while delete and download it again. Polytopia really hits the spot in a lot of ways as the only consistent thing game to game is the player and the tribe you choose to play. It has a great level of randomness making the game, to a degree, new each time I really enjoy discovering the maps and the Conquest Mode on Pass and Play is my favorite. You can't ever tackle one round of this game the same way you did the last one. Each map brings new challenges and can force you out of your comfort zone so you never actually get to reach some of your favorite techs or do your favorite strategies. One round you need to rush your opponent while the next you need to be patient and ready to strike. That being said there is a reason I'll delete the game. After a while it gets boring you can buy another tribe to spice it up, which is only $.99, but after a while it just won't be as fun because you've done everything you can do. Sure you can start a new game with a new map and new enemies to conquer but after you've done that a few hundred times it feels like the same thing over and over.

Great game with great potential


It was honestly a relief to find this game. In my view, this is one of the few actual mobile "games." This is a game because it does not fit into the mold of the majority of mobile games these days. No endless tapping for coins. No energy bars to limit your gameplay. And no repetitive tasks that you are forced to complete. This game is its own adventure.

It is a Civilization type game and if you love Civilization, then you will love The Battle for Polytopia because while it is obviously smaller, it has its own unique charm and still holds the core of the game strongly. With varied gameplay and a certain amount of freedom in your choices that makes you feel no match is the same. This game was built with care from the ground up.

Now, what might be most impressive of all is despite being such a great and solid game already, it has so much room to grow. From online multiplayer to more technology to even greater freedom in map size and variety. It's a well built game every step of the way and just has more to offer in the future. With very recent and active updates to boot! I love this game.

This game is a MASTERPIECE


I’ve been playing this game since April of 2017. My friend showed it to me while we were on the bus to a school tournament. I instantly admired the art style; all of its colors and textures. From the startup screen to the actual gameplay. The next thing was everything else about the game. This is a game where you must experiment, and develop strategies, especially when playing with the Crazy AI or a friend. This is what kept me addicted to the game, and what made it fun for me. Even now, 7 1/2 months later, I haven’t grown tired of this game, and if you like unique, fun, difficult strategy games , this game is perfect for you.

This game has room for so many new concepts and features that could make it so much better than it already is, like online multiplayer and new unit types, maybe even completely different kinds of tech trees for certain groups of tribes, the list goes on. This game, at this stage, definitely needs to cost more than it currently does, because it would be worth it.

I absolutely love this game, I cannot imagine deleting it anytime soon.
