    Regions and construction of the map

    I understand I am probably not gonna be read but I do have a few suggestions that would make the game quite interesting. What I really find fun in these civilization games is the creation of the gameplay itself. So something like team play with bots or online players. Ex: 2 v 2 battles where the teammates will share the same boarder color but have their unique tribal looks and color on buildings and characters. Another thing I suggest is being able to set the map size or the amount of water tiles produced in a game, while this can be randomized I’d think it would be a great add to the game if we could make our own maps and use them for online or bots, you could even put a price figure on that. When I first started playing them game I could barely beat a normal, now I go against 9 crazy’s and beat all of them no problem, so in consideration I hope you guys could make a harder difficulty for the bots maybe giving them a boost to their economy. In all of this I love this game and will continue to play for years on, you guys are doing awesome with your tribes and I am ready and excited to see more updates and changes, hopefully some of them I mentioned. Thank You.

    Best mobile game ever

    As someone with an infinite thirst to improve my strategy skills, I have searched for forever to find that perfect game. Very few have stuck with me. This, however, has to be the best mobile game in the history of mobile games. Because of the differing looks and terrain for each tribe, each tribe feels special and unique, not to mention the tribes that are actually unique. It’s quite amazing how easily I got sucked into this beautiful, low poly world. This game is truly a masterpiece and I would absolutely love to see what the developers have in store. If, like me, you love strategy, conquest, and simplicity (while also retaining a decent complexity), this is the game for you. The devs are quick to respond to the bad review to fix the problems someone has reported, the devs are great at fixing bugs, this game has very few bugs (I have encountered only 1, and it barely affected anything. It was more like an easter egg than a bug), the game is simple but not too simple, has great graphics over a beautiful low poly design, and the gameplay is great overall. This is one of the greatest games I have ever played, and I really suggest it to anyone, even for a quick pastime. The game is truly amazing.

    Some Suggestions

    Playing almost everyday including when I travel, flying, driving, even walking whatever I’m doing and I have time to pass this is the game to play, but I have some suggestion to help make it more fun! First, there should be more terrain such as valleys that take up to a max of 4-8 squares and if you level up passed the knowledge of roads you can purchase the knowledge of bridges and they can be upgraded because they can be attacked! To add on, small rivers can also form now and the new bridges can be built over the rivers and can be built on big lager rivers that have a max of only one square. Next, a new unit should be added, and they can be new boats (the tech splits off from the boats tree). The new boats can include ram boats that ram into other boats and units that are in a coast, another boat unit can be like the philosopher they take over an enemy boat by boarding the other boat, but can only take it over if it has less health or even health with each other, and finally the last unit is the ironclad a brute like ship the does a medium amount of damage but has a ton of health maybe 40 or so. Thank you for reading my suggestions and of course keep working on this addicting game!

    Overall a great game

    Polytopia is very innovative, being able to be a civilization game that has a clean user interface (without the over detailed and overwhelming amount of actions that other games sport). It is also very engaging, locking the player into a sense of worry as their empire falls to one city, or a sense of victory as they devastate 2-3 civilizations. The reason I find Polytopia different than other civilization games, is that Polytopia doesn't push in game purchases, every time you quit to the menu or start a new game; this factor alone is extremely strong, since other civilization games make you miserable with the amount they MAKE you pay to continue. Along with this review, I have a few suggestions that I will detail in the next sentence. The world generation of Polytopia isn’t something for me to question, however I think users should be able to set guidelines for their world generations, such as the amount of water or the distance between capital cities. Another suggestion that I have is that it should take units a turn to convert to the enemy; this would allow the player to make a counter-unit to reverse the process ( you might require to raise the health of the converter to 15).

    A Wonderfull Game

    This Game is great, I would compare to a slimmed down cig game and not in a bad way, I find over complicated mobile games are unappealing and too much at times and Regis gave the perfect amount of strategy and fun into the experience. But I do have a few concerns, first of all I have played and kept a close attention to updates to this game and I think they could be produced perhaps faster and of better quality, I enjoyed the creative tab being able to customize the type of world you play in, and I realize that they just came out with another special tribe, but I think that there should be a more customized experience that could be implemented. First of all, I think the community has some great tribe ideas and maybe you listen to them and make more tribes that appeal to the community, that would benefit the both of us, a cool new tribe and profit. Second of all I wish there was a little more to the diplomatics in the game. South as alliances and declaring wars, not too much more, but enough so that boundaries are clear and it would diversify the game more. Those are my main concerns and I hope this message teaches people looking into the game. Thanks!!! -A dedicated fan

    This Game Is AMAZING

    First of all, you guys are the best. A lot of people complain about the paid tribes, but I understand where you’re coming from. You’re an indie company, and hosting online servers isn’t free. So now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, time to write an actual review. I love this game! It may or may not be my favorite RTS on the App Store. That graphics are simplistic but gorgeous. All of the tribes are unique and have something new to bring to the table. The game is balanced, something that a lot of Real Time Strategy games can’t manage. And there are NO ADS. ZERO. NADA. I really respect that you guys are trying to make a playable game instead of a blatant cash grab. The RTS style here is done very well. I actually feel like I am commanding an army and going to war. All of the units have something new to offer, and there are a plethora of strategies you can make with all of the units. If there is one thing I would suggest, it would be diplomacy. Trading and making alliances would be pretty cool to add to the game. And that’s about all I have to say. The game is GREAT, and you guys have made something truly amazing! Keep on trucking! Also congrats on getting your game to Steam! (Sorry for potential typos)

    Midjiwan I have ideas

    Midjiwan I love this game it’s the best game ever but I have some ideas to make it better for example three new tech branches one a radioactive tech tree it would have chlorine gases in the first in the second masked soldiers and in the last ( I know this sounds crazy) nukes I don’t want this game to be complicated so to keep it simple launching a nuke you need a place to launch it and that would cost stars and to launch it would cost stars too but a lot and you could only launch a nuke 1 every 2 turns the second tech tree would be airborne there would be a makeshift plane a better plane and then the best plan. And also maybe add a communication branch in this branch there would be letters radios and more and maybe a troop that sends messages that can boost other troops. And there would also be new tribes three for each tech like one that starts off with masked soldiers and no other one with airborne planes ( that aren’t overpowered) and one that starts with communication. I know this seems a lot but I think it would make the game better and more action packed but simple too that’s why I love your game and please if you are reading this please try and do this

    My favorite app in the world!

    I am a long time fan of Polytopia and have seen all of its changes and advances, and I have put in more hours than I care to say. Anyone who I have shown it to has instantly lived it and will play whenever we have time. I cannot recommend this game more! It beautiful mixes strategy, skill, and simplicity all in one. Polytopia is also easy to pick up and takes a while to master it, but when you do it only becomes more fun. However there are two simple changes to the game that should be reversed to how they used to be. Firstly you should be able to name the worlds like you used to. It’s can sometimes be trying to scroll though six games before you find the one your looking for. Another more significant change is the addition of more water tiles when the world is generated. Many games are very one sided as other players more often are restricted to small islands until they can research the navigation tech. This can be quite frustrating when you just want a good match. As I already said this is my favorite game in the App Store and I cannot recommend it enough! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

    This gaming app is on my top 3 favorites to play!!!

    I am so addicted to this game! I am a huge fan of the civilization games and this is definitely 1 thousand times better then the mobile versions of civilization! I probably even prefer this over the pc version counterparts. There literally is no reason why you shouldn’t get this game it’s free. Although if you wanted to play online you can only match up with other friends and not random people and you’d have to pay for one of the tribes (civilizations basically just in this game they are called tribes) in order to play online with your friends but it isn’t that expensive and they don’t overprice any of them. There are 4 free tribes to choose from and most of the other ones cost about a dollar and there are 3 special tribes that are 2 dollars. Before you buy a tribe I’d read what each tribe is capable of because every tribe has their own perks and that way you don’t buy one you don’t like. So even tho theirs like 1 or 2 flaws don’t let that stop you from getting this game there is no reason not to especially if you are a fan of the civilization games.

    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.

    Great game, some room for improvement

    Firstly, let me just say that I can’t wait for the PC version of this. You can take my ten dollars for that. Anyways, back to the mobile version. It’s really good, but as of now, there is a lot that could be added since really the only way to win is to take over everything and that gets repetitive after a while. A diplomacy system of some sort would really help in that arena. Second, I keep getting the Luxidoor in my game even though I haven’t bought them. Another thing I don’t like (I don’t know if this is a bug or not) is that you can upgrade a city, choose to get a giant, and if your city is being invaded it will simply push the invading unit out of the way. It’s very annoying when the AI does this constantly. Also, I think it would provide more variety for those who don’t want to buy tribes if you included Kickoo in the free tribes, because it starts at the base level of the tech tree as well. Now, onto some suggestions. Perhaps a separate branch of the tech tree for diplomacy would definitely provide more depth. Another thing to add could be ‘dissent’ in recently taken over cities. It would impair the production and max troops of that city over time, and eventually lead to rebellion. This would make it harder to win by simply killing everything, because it would make it necessary to secure captured cities before moving on to the next. Finally, it would be nice to have an upgraded version of the Archer, maybe a Crossbowman?

    So close to greatness

    I’ve been playing Polytopia (supertribes) on and off for a couple of years now, there is just something that keep bringing me back. Every time I play I always dream of crushing my friends in a match to show off my skill, but that fact is I simply can’t do that. Multiplayer in this game is blocked behind a pay wall, yes there is the free “pass and play” but that just slows down the experience and isn’t very enjoyable when your trying to hide your position from your friends. I would love to see multiplayer became a free feature, and I do understand the reason it may be blocked is because you guys are a small company and you need some type of income, but still I feel that doing this would help the community out a lot. Multiplayer in general dealing with any turn based game always takes time. Now I am not sure how the online multiplayer in Polytopia works having never played it, but I feel like there is an easy solution to a more exciting fast paced experience. Adding a timer to every players turn; let’s say 5sec early on and progressively gets longer, would really add fast thinking and excitement to this already intense game. This is just some things I think you guys should improve on, I myself am a design freak and I have many other ideas, but in the end it’s your game and I really want you guys to succeed.

    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.

    Man why are so many ppl hating on this game?

    I was just scrolling through the “Most Critical” comments and dang, there were a lot of them lol. Some were saying the graphics were bad, but they’re not. Just look at the pictures of the game or download it yourself! Other people were saying that the AI cheated, but (no offense) those people probably weren’t the best players. Some were saying how they took away pass and play and domination (which they didn’t) or maybe they put them back in bcuz ima new player. The only thing I agree with (and I’m pretty sure anyone who’s reading this agrees too) is how you have to pay for 8 other tribes, 99 cents each. (which is cheap tho). I mean, after playing all the four default tribes (my favorite being the desert rider guys) it gets kinda boring, even with the random maps. Another thing is that you have to sign in to Game Center to play multiplayer. (Its probably not a problem for other people, but for some reason I’m not allowed to sign in to Game Center cuz of my over protective parents.) Other multiplayer games don’t require it! Take clash of clans for example. And that’s it. Thx for reading, random person! Can’t believe you made it! 😂
