Defeat villains and dominate the world during lunch break
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.
