Often called a Polytopia rip-off, Hexonia has found a decent player base who enjoy the slight twists on aspects found in The Battle of Polytopia.

This strategy game, by Togglegear, makes use of a hexagonal grid and a more focused and linear tech tree. Unlike Polytopia, each tribe has a special guardian to help in the war effort, adding a unique edge to each tribe that is minimally found in Polytopia’s regular tribes. Hexonia is a solid counter to Polytopia.

Antiyoy is a strange abstract experience by Yiotro. Simple, off-line, to the point and yet quite deeply strategic, players may find a delight in what could be considered a stripped-back Polytopia experience.

This simple game contains numerous levels, and also a range of user-created levels to enjoy. Despite the simplicity, you must manage numerous economies and pay very close attention to your expansion and the cost-effectiveness of your troops. Those wishing for an off-line and simpler experience, Antiyoy is for you.
