De­feat vil­lains and dom­i­nate the world dur­ing lunch break

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

This mo­bile, turn-based strat­egy game lets you plot some quick (and adorable) world dom­i­na­tion, with­out nec­es­sar­ily hav­ing to de­vote hours to an­a­lyz­ing and con­quer­ing a map. “Bat­tle of Polytopia” of­fers you a few modes for play, de­pend­ing on your goals and what you have the time to do. You can try to de­feat your en­e­mies in 30 turns or aim for world dom­i­na­tion. You can also play with a friend, as long as you’re in the same room, us­ing the pass-and-play mode.

The app is a strat­egy game, but it doesn’t have the in­tri­cate tech­nol­ogy pro­gres­sions or even al­low for par­tic­u­larly com­plex strate­gies. But it is great for a more snack­able ver­sion of a beloved genre of game, and also hap­pens to be a whole lot of fun.

Free, for iOS and An­droid.
