  • Great game Jul 27, 2018

    By JoeJoe 2
    Hello, I like to start just by saying what a great game. This game is packed with hours of fun. I would like to make a recommendation for the third Special Tribe: The Engineers. Like in the Alien movies the engineers should be master creators. I will go over each special tab and then I will recommend some units. The hunting and fishing research tabs should enable the consumption and convert into a little amount of stars instead of xp so that you can create more units. You should be able to now farm these animals or upgrade them like the second special tribe, but no dragons. The riding tab should be a cloning tab so instead of more quality you get more quantity. Though the clone will be weaker and you can’t clone a clone. The engineer tab should give you something cool and the sailing tab enables ports. You should be able to upgrade a battleship to an airship. Everything else is up to the developer(s) for the tabs. Some units I recommend are healer and builder. The healer is obvious, but the builder should be able to construct walls that act like mountains and can construct bridges to go over water. The art for the temples should be exclusive. I know it’s a young idea, but I think it has potential. I understand the dev(s) might not even read this, but personally think something like this would be awesome.

    Amazing app, super fun to play. It's a turn based strategy game but nothing like anything else on the app store. Great music and graphics as well. However it can get a bit boring if you play it too much in a certain amount of time, but it is fun to come back to after a few days or weeks. Definitely needs some more stuff though to keep it interesting. More troops? Public live PvP? Diplomacy (e.g. Alliances, truces, etc.)? All of these would improve the game. Still fun though.

  • Great game, some room for improvement Jun 16, 2019

    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?

    Why not give us the option of random online multiplayer? I don't have friends playing this game, and not I don't want to use discord. Also, it would be super If you pulled a nintendo and allow local multiplayer if someone from the company owns the game. It's pretty difficult to convince people to buy the game without trying, at least allow it for 10 games or something!

    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.

  • My purchase disappeared May 31, 2019

    By Bethany1026
    I actually really like this game ! Unlocking new tribes with money isn’t necessary to have fun at all, and I’m keeping it because of that. However, I bought a tribe to play multiplayer with my friend. We played a game, and I got absolutely destroyed, but it was fun ! In the middle of our game, my multiplayer was disabled and my purchased tribe disappeared. The only reason I can think of for this is I logged in to a new Game Center account, since the old one was a deleted email and didn’t even work. Any other game with in app purchases still works, and the tribe is still in my purchase history. I understand that maybe they used Game Center to track it so the app got confused, so I emailed them. They sent me an automated email thanking me for my feedback. Looking through reviews, this seems like a common occurrence. Needless to say, I won’t be purchasing anything else from this app or the developers unless they show care for their players and fix this issue.

  • Notifications not Working Jul 8, 2020

    By GoldJomell
    I want to give this game five stars so badly. It’s basically discount mobile Civilization which honestly is great, if you don’t want to sink a week’s worth of time to play a full game. Super fun and the multiplayer function works great. Only issue is that I don’t get notifications for when it’s my turn in games. When I first downloaded the app the notifications weren’t working. Then I made sure all the people I had a game with added me back as a friend and that worked for a few days. Now I’m not getting notifications again. I’ve tried googling it and a lot of people have experiencing the same problem (although most posts were created in 2018 which I assume is when multiplayer first came out). Haven’t found a fix for it, and I’ve lost a couple games now just because I get busy with my day and forget about my games since I’m not getting notifications. PLEASE FIX and I will happily give this game five stars.

  • Regions and construction of the map Mar 27, 2019

    By BrycesBasement08
    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.

    One of the best mobile strategy games out there. Clean, interesting, and deep gameplay. (Not as deep as some PC strategy games, but extremely good for mobile) A good graphical style. And no ads or pay-to-win! Just paid unlocks of more tribes you can play as, and the free options are pretty decent. My only wishlist items are a bundle purchase of all the tribes, and bigger maps, especially once you've got a bunch of tribes unlocked. But that's all small fry. It's great, get it.

  • Some Suggestions Oct 19, 2019

    By I AM THE ONE!!!
    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 May 18, 2018

    By I'm just a reviewer
    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).

    This is by far my favorite app. Only giving 4 stars because it's buggy. Every now and then near the end of a multiplayer match it just.... forgets who's turn it is? Hope it's fixed soon, polytopia is like crack. Updating review to add a few things. Polaris is still heavily broken, even with the recent changes to them. Playing them is horribly slow to start, but if you get the fortresses you pretty much win the game. I would love to see some new play modes and customizable maps.

  • Easily a five if... Dec 13, 2017

    By GoMadMama
    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.

  • Tribes need to be fixed Aug 16, 2019

    By ushdyejs
    I’ve been playing Polytopia for a while now, and something that’s annoying is the fact that there’s not an even amount of tribes to start off with. All the basic ones, like Kickoo and Luxidoor, should be unlocked when you first get the game. Also Luxidoor needs to be cheaper! It’s the most expensive tribe and it’s not even that good. I’ve played against the A.I when i play, and it’s so upsetting to think that it could’ve been having all the first tribes to start off for 3$. Also have a tutorial set up and have them fight against the A.I’s so they can understand how to play, and this should also be in for when playing with others who have never played this game. A.I’s also need to be nerfed because of how unfair they can be. I’ve spawned so many times surrounded by water and all the tribes can just easily get to me and kill me with no hesitation since they’ll work together! You should also add a team option so people can team with A.I’s and have a new mode to play with. Would’ve given it five stars but these need to be fixed.

  • Fun game but has some issues Nov 5, 2019

    By Night Wolfx
    Races that you can buy for $2 aren’t always even, bots are smart enough to upgrade boats which can win or lose a game and in general are not super smart even on hardest difficulty. I win 4/5 games when playing with many bots. Unit damage, units seem to do less attack at the beginning then more towards the middle/end game, but on top of that there’s no telling how much damage a unit will do in general. Seems some units do more to others etc but no way to tell. Other major thing is some units can move, attack then move again and there is no way of telling when you have lots of units if that one has already attacked or not then you go move some other unit then think they can attack but can’t which ends up messing up your units and turn. Multiplayer shouldn’t need $1 to use and not even have any type of matchmaking instead only having friend codes to play against people, there should be a setting where you can vs anyone at any time thus starting a game and going from there. Maps should have more variety in them and be a little more balanced. There’s a game called Battle For Wesnoth which goes way more in depth fighting than this game that is free on pc and a few bucks on here, this game seems to be inspired by it which is cool! Game is fun but these things in the game make it annoying half the time, not having much of a challenge kinda ruins the game. Maybe I shouldn’t use the same $2 water tribe that keeps demolishing the AI.

  • Work Needed Nov 25, 2018

    By Eyeball13
    This is a good game, I have already purchased 3 of the extra tribes to play as. However, there are a couple improvements that are needed to make this game a great game, and keep people’s attention. Firstly, it would be a great improvement if there were more than just two game modes. After a while there is only so much that can happen when playing the same two modes: perfection or domination, repeatedly. Secondly, it would be great to have customizable map sizes for all games. In some multiplayer games, you may choose small, medium, or large size map. This is not the case in single player modes, however. The number of tiles is dependent on the number tribes you play against in single player, but there is a limit to the number of tiles they allow you to have. It would be nice to maps that are customizable and larger. Overall its a fun and addicting game, despite the fact that these improvements need made.

  • I made an in app purchase and after I redownloaded the app it was gone May 6, 2018

    By Lionryan45
    So I wanted to be able to play online, and one of the requirements was to log into game center. The problem was that my game center was working and the app just did not detect my Game Center. I already bought the aquarion set for 2 dollars and enabled notifications. The game would pop up my Game Center when I opened the app but it just wouldn’t check off the step to play online with friends. To fix this I decided I would delete and redownload the app. I did this and the Game Center thing wasn’t working(I eventually got it to work) but now my in app purchase is not there and I need that step to play online. I love this game and I am not opposed to spending another dollar on a tribe, but I would be very disappointed if I can not have my tribe that I already spent two dollars on. If anyone that works app support can help me with this it would be greatly appreciated.
