The Battle of Polytopia

By Midjiwan AB

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


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.

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 in Version 1.9.0

While Midjiwan is on "Parental Leave" we, The Quetzali tribe, are taking over this show. We will release our people from the moist dungeons of Polytopia to once again populate the square with style!

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.

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.

I found the bug

On the forums, I read that Midjiwan himself was confused on how people got 100k+ scores. I think I found out how they did that. I have a really old iPhone 4s, so ALL of my games crash from time to time, but once when I was playing Polytopia, it crashed at the end of my turn during perfection mode. When I reloaded the game, it was as if I had clicked next turn (I could move all my guys and I got new stars) but it was still the turn I was in when it crashed. I basically got to do a turn twice in one turn. However, it crashed again at the end of that turn (don't stop yourself from getting this game because mine crashed twice. Really old iPhone 4s remember?) and the cycle repeated. At this point I was getting bored because I had destroyed the opposing tribe, so I spammed next turn until it was over. I think if you could force the game to crash, you could keep doing infinite turns until you have 100k+ points.

Overall on the game, it's a great game like nothing I have ever seen and has a lot of potential. I love it a lot.
