The Battle of Polytopia is a turn-based strategy game where you choose a civilization and try to rule the world with it. To do this, at times you'll need to enter into conflict with other civilizations, but usually, you just need technological development.

Before beginning a game of The Battle of Polytopia, you have to choose the civilization you want to play with. All the factions are fictitious, but they're openly inspired by real civilizations from history. You'll find some that are similar to the Romans, Vikings, Samurai, Aztecs, and more.

One of the main points in The Battle of Polytopia is the excellent balance between simplicity and complexity throughout gameplay. Games from the 4X genre tend to be pretty complex, with a lot of concepts to learn and understand in order to be able to start enjoying the game. However, this game from Midjiwan manages to narrow down most of the fundamental concepts into an intelligent and elegant game that can be mastered in just a couple minutes. It's also a real achievement in terms of design.

Once the game has started, it won't take you more than five minutes to start doing everything the game requires: research new technologies, recruit soldiers, explore the world, fight against other civilizations, and of course, conquer cities. And all of this is done intuitively thanks to a perfect control system for touchscreens.

The Battle of Polytopia is an excellent turn-based 4X (like Civilization or Master of Magic) that, unlike other games from the same genre for Android, is specially designed with mobile devices in mind. The result is an excellent game, that also comes with beautiful low-poly graphics to top it all off.
