The Battle of Polytopia is a brilliant, mobile-first turn-based strategy game that’s been bubbling along nicely for a few years now. And today it got updated with a bunch of new diplomatic options that let you conquer the world in slightly different ways.
Instead of just going to war, now you can try and work out peace treaties with other tribes, even going so far as to build an embassy in an opponent’s territory to the benefit of both sides.
If that doesn’t work out, there are new units as well. Cloak units are invisible to the other side and Dagger units can be used to infiltrate cities. So you can be diplomatic, then do some stabbing. Here’s a trailer.
Elsewhere you’ve got Capital Vision that lets you see where all the Captials are, and Tribe Relations so you can figure out who your friends with and who you need to crush with your military might.
Alongside the new content the update also features a load of tweaks and balances to make sure the game runs as smoothly as possible. And who doesn’t like it when things run smoothly?
