Developer Midjiwan’s turn-based strategy game The Battle of Polytopia (Free) has earned cult-like status in the world of mobile gamers. Originally launched in early 2016 under the name Super Tribes, The Battle of Polytopia offered a brilliant touchscreen interface and compelling strategy gameplay that we loved in our review. That early version of the game was pretty limited in scope, but Midjiwan continued to update the game with additional tribes as DLC which was constantly keeping the game fresh for players. The ultimate goal was achieved just this past February when the long-requested feature of cross-platform online multiplayer was added to the game. Now the developers are getting back to their tribe-adding ways and have just added possibly the weirdest new tribe to The Battle of Polytopia to date. Say hello to the ∑∫ỹriȱŋ tribe.
Yes, ∑∫ỹriȱŋ is the name of the new tribe, and I’m not entirely confident that all those characters will render properly in your browser. No matter! Here’s the new tribe’s description: The mysterious ∑∫ỹriȱŋ defend their woodland homes with colorful magic and the ferocity of fire-breathing dragons! They regard Nature as a holy spirit and cannot hunt animals or chop down trees, instead they start the game with the unique Enchantment tech that can turn regular animals into powerful monsters." Similar to the other tribes in the game, the ∑∫ỹriȱŋ can be unlocked for a $1.99 IAP. If you enjoy turn-based strategy but somehow have slept on The Battle of Polytopia for the past couple of years, you should rectify that immediately and download the game for free, which gives you a full four tribes to play with and many more available as optional DLC. And with this year’s addition of online multiplayer, you can find TONS of folks to play with by checking out the comments on this article as well as our forum thread dedicated to username sharing.
