Great game! Only one suggestion

This game is amazing, and if you are looking for a strategy game with great graphics and online matches this is the game for you. One complaint I do have is about the recent need to luxidor. While I do agree luxidor was unbalanced, it is now one of the worst tribes in the game. It now only makes three stars instead of four and this changed it a lot. It takes usually until you find another village or ruin before you can start getting economy going and this sets it back majorly especially considering you have to buy the tech which costs at least five stars. Luxidor is the most expensive tribe and it is honestly a disappointment of a once great tribe. Some suggestions I have to fix this are maybe giving luxidor a starting amount of stars of 7 instead of five. This would help to get early economy going quickly and would make it unique as it would be the only tribe to start with seven stars. Another thing if you don’t like starting with seven stars is increasing the amount of animals or fruit that spawn around the luxidor. This could also help economy to get going and would make it so instead of having to buy two techs to upgrade your capitol to only one. Otherwise this game is great and definitely would recommend playing. Thanks for reading!

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?

This game is a few years old, and the regular updates don’t add that much replayability. But still, if you haven’t played it, and you’re at all interested in turn based strategy, seriously, play it. It’s free, it’s fun, it doesn’t do anything to annoy you or to try to be more addictive than fun or any of the other nonsense you find in every other mobile game.

In fact, the worst thing you can say about Polytopia is that it will make you depressed about the horrible state of mobile gaming in general. A small studio could pull this off years ago, and yet still, every good idea that anyone comes up with is ruined behind horrible monetization schemes that make the game no fun. Polytopia proves that you can do better, but nobody is bothering to do better. So, we’re all carrying around what should be an amazing gaming device but isn’t, just because nobody can think of any way to make money besides bombarding you with a storm of deceptive ads or manipulating you into paying to unlock the “free” content.

But at least there’s always Polytopia to come back to whenever you get frustrated about the latest game that advertises that it’s not like all the other garbage and then turns out to be exactly what the ads say it isn’t…
