The Battle of Polytopia, formerly known as Super Tribes, is a 4X turn-based world-building strategy game developed by Midjiwan AB. It was released in February 2016 for iOS and Android.[1]

The player leads one of fifteen tribes to conquer a polygonal square-shaped world by capturing cities.

It's playable alone against AI, against friends in the "Pass & Play" mode, and against online opponents in multiplayer mode.[2]


Released on February 29th 2016, the game was originally named Super Tribes. However, in June 2016 the name was changed to The Battle of Polytopia due to trademark issues.[3] A desktop version is planned to be released on Steam during spring 2019.[4]


Polytopia is a turn-based single- or multiplayer strategy game. The player takes on the role of the ruler of a Tribe, starting with one advantage over the other tribes, and attempts to build an empire in competition with the other tribes, which can either be controlled by the computer itself, or by a turn-based, "pass and play" system.

Auto-generated maps make each game a new experience, with unlimited replay value.

There are currently 15 different tribes to choose from. Each tribe has differing terrain and structures.[5]
