Midjiwan’s The Battle of Polytopia (Free) has quite the cult following. It debuted on the App Store in early 2016 and has consistently received updates wit enhancements and new content. I only started playing it after a friend constantly spoke about how well it played which was surprising given the genre. The Battle of Polytopia is one of the most approachable turn based strategy games out there. It also looks excellent and controls brilliantly on touch. Midjiwan announced something everyone wanted earlier when an online multiplayer update with cross platform play was announced.
The big update is finally live and includes more than just the online multiplayer mode. For one, the online multiplayer games support up to 12 players in each game. Android and iOS users can play together. This update also includes an updated interface and iPhone X support in addition to full resolution support on all devices.
Midjiwan says that this is the first take on multiplayer in Polytopia and there will be more cool stuff added in the future. The multiplayer mode here is free for anyone who has bought a paid tribe in game. If you haven’t, you’re prompted to buy one if you try and access the online multiplayer here.
