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.

Editors’ Notes

Lead your tribe to victory

One of the best games I own, but I have a few suggestions.


This is really the only game that I’ve played that I haven’t deleted within a few days. The gameplay is simple and it exemplifies the civilization style strategy that keeps me coming back every day. My suggestions are more from a mobile UX perspective rather than gameplay bc I think the idea is clearly successful. Since the update, ending a turn requires me to click the bottom menu and then click a menu in the center to confirm. Since it doesn’t overlay the menu at the bottom, I can style click those menu buttons with the confirmation still at the center. It might be more intuitive to revert back to an overlay menu on the bottom that way my finger doesn’t have to constantly traverse up and down the screen and additionally I won’t be able to hit the other menu buttons. You might be thinking, there’s not much distance from the bottom to the middle, but it does get tedious.
The zoom level might be just preference, but I would love to be able to zoom in further so it doesn’t feel like I’m so far away from my cities and units. I would also be aware of your touch points. Since the UI has become a lot smaller in size (buttons,text,etc) it may become more difficult to read/hit those points on the screen, especially for users with large fingers.
Just a few suggestions from a fellow designer, keep hammering out cool ideas!

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.
