The Battle of Polytopia Wikia

A city of the Ai-Mo tribe, late in the game, with several units and terrain improvements.

The Battle of Polytopia, formerly known as Super Tribes, is a turn-based world-building strategy game developed by Midjiwan AB. The player leads one of fifteen Tribes to conquer a square-shaped world by capturing Cities. Cities earn Stars that can be used to research Technologies, train Units to engage in Combat, and develop the surrounding Terrain to gain Population. Be warned, however: the more Cities that are added to the empire, the higher the cost of technological research... and the greater the area that must be protected from the endless onslaught of the other tribes!

You may play in Single player, where the goal of the game is either to gain the highest possible score in 30 turns (Perfection), or to destroy all opposing tribes (Domination).

Alternatively, you could engage in a local multiplayer "Pass & Play" with your friends, or connect with them online and play games from the comfort of your homes!
