The Battle For Polytopia, once known as Super Tribes, is a new game for the iOS and Android platforms that can best be described as a cross between Shining Force and Risk/Stratego. Your goal in this game is to move your tribal warriors outwards, engage in fights with members of other tribes, and take over their cities. Eventually, you can take over the entire map, but if not, you have to try to take over as much of the map as possible. Read on for some tips and tricks for The Battle For Polytopia!
You begin each round with one single city, and on each turn you can spawn a troop out of your city. As you take over more cities, you will be able to spawn troops out of them, too. The more cities that you take over, the faster that you can fill your board with troops, meaning that the easier it will be to train enough of them to send up against your opponents.
Oftentimes, you will get bonuses that give you a choice to choose between one bonus and another. If you get this choice, with very little exception, you should go for the super troop. The super troop has far more power and health than your average troop, making them an excellent trump card for attacking enemies and taking over rival cities.
Your tech tree is in the top right corner of the screen. You’ll need it in order to exploit all of the resources except for the ones that your tribe of choice can use in the first place. Be sure to save stars so that you can fill out your resource tree, and remember that some of the research tech skills simply increase the number of stars that you earn each turn. You will need to research them in order to keep up once you have more cities under your belt.
When your screen is loaded with fighters, that allows you the freedom to team up against your opponents’ attackers, To make the best use of this against someone who is a space or two away, have them attack from as far away as possible. They will move right next to to the spot that they are attacking. This is a useful tool for ganging up and taking a city, especially.
If you are playing with more than one enemy, focus on one at a time, while still being sure to defend your city. Split your troops in between defenders and attackers, and have your attackers all go after the same city. Then move on to another city afterwards.
