Polygon Evolution is a mind-bending puzzle game featured with a minimalist art style and challenging gameplay. The game is set in a hex-based grid filled by cells at different levels as dots, lines, crosses, triangles and so on. You can only place the basic dot cells and your aim is to place them strategically to form hexagon cells. What make it a challenging goal are those black cells that interrupt your progress taking up space while blocking your way. The game offers classic mode for single player and also (online) multiplayer challenge.

Polygon Evolution is in the same vein with Triple Town but with some significant differences. It adopts a minimalist styled design that leaves out the cute cartoony artwork but focuses on dots, lines and a bunch of geometry signs. More importantly, it plays not like a typical single-player game. There is always an opponent against you whether it’s the AI or other real players that control the black cells.
Game Rules & Mechanics
Polygon Evolution prepares a Tutorial that explains all a novice player should know. The game is built on a hex-based grid and has several types of cells known as dots, lines, crosses, triangles and on in an ascending order based on their level. Three cells of the same level in a straight line combine to form one of a higher levels and collapse into the one that was last placed. You can only place the lowest dot cells and can only place them adjacent to your own cells on the board.
The aim of the game is to build hexagon cells. With 999 turns in the initial, that wound be very easy if without the necessary devil, the Black cells. After black cells spawn, it becomes a turn-based wrestle. They follow the same evolution rules. They can use your cells to form combos, and vice verse. One way to get rid of them is to use their cells in a combo and make sure you have at least as many cells as the Black to avoid color change. But to clear them all at once, you need to create a new triangle or higher level cell.
Polygon Evolution features both single-player mode and multiplayer challenge. You can play the Classic mode for practice against the auto-spawned Black cells. Once after you’ve created a hexagon cell in it, you can unlock the Expert play, more of the same play style in a higher difficulty. As for the multiplayer mode, you can play against a friend on the same device, white vs. black, or match up with a random player online.
Polygon Evolution is played for free. But there are paid features that offer a more customized experience. The game has a default free theme Acid in the background. If you want to change it, you can choose from 11 other themes like Rainbow, Strawberry, Mono and more at a price. Themes aside, you can purchase help, or specifically a triangle cell that eliminates all black cells when you are struck and almost blocked to lose. The paid help can be used only once per game.
