it was fun up until the beetle puzzle
after wasting an hour or so on the beetle puzzle I uninstalled
the art style is incredibly interesting and I really wanted to like this game with it's unique soundtrack and bright colors,
I also loved the idea of being a bug trying to survive and gather food and objects and things- the "hidden object in picture" part of this game was really fun!
but the controls are awful, some puzzles were ok at best and others were a chore. When your game starts to feel like a chore, it stops being a game

Fun game, however, the 4th level is broken and the game is currently incompletable. So I'm going to have to leave a negative review until they fix it.

It's alright. Game is short but fun and really cheap. Nice artwork, but beware if you hate bugs because this game has a lot of them :D
The only thing I would change are the controls, it awkward to move the bug and really slow.

I actually really like this game. Very cheap and very short, but just short enough to not be boring. The puzzles are challenging and the lack of text is an interesting design choice. If you want to take your mind off of everything for an houjr or two, I highly recommendthis game.

An interesting twist on a search and find game. Amazing art and relaxing music. It needs to have a free mode for each level that has other objects to find.

Morphopolis is a failry fun little puzzle + hidden object game that has very nice artwork backed by decent sound effects. Unfortunately, some design issues make progression very tedious, making this a weak recommendation at best:

1. There is no save, so if you just want to quit and continue at another time, prepare to start the chapter again.
2. Your character moves far too slowly, and you're often forced to backtrack multitimes to pick up the 'hidden objects' so you can progress to the next puzzle or stage. The lack of savepoints just amplifies this tedium.

Basic Information
Title: Morphopolis
Developer: Dan Walters and Ceri Williams
Publisher: Dan Walters
Genre: Puzzle point ‘n click

General Impression
Morphopolis surprised me with its elegant simplicity. It’s obviously, an indie game but one which really stands out with its almost psychedelic visual style and color palette. The game feels different with, metamorphosis being the focal point of a storyline filled with puzzles and hidden objects that await discovery. It is sadly far too short and relatively easy to complete. The lack of any replay value is offset however, by the more than decent price tag and the inclusion of both Achivements and Trading Cards.

Strong Points
+ Superb hand-drawn artworks.
+ Steam Trading Cards & Achievements.

Weak Points
- Short and too easy.

Rating 8/10

Bought Morphopolis in the Art Appreciation pack a while back. No regrets !

Finally got around to trying it out and I am not dissapointed !
A relaxing atmosphere, challenging puzzles, and of course, stunning art.
I really enjoyed playing through this game, even though some might find it a little short.

Definitely worth it, especially for the price. With the summersale on top of it right now
(price €0,24), I want to say you're underpaying for such a beautiful expierence.

Morphopolis is beautifully executed: the artwork stunning and amazing. It is a simple game but a logic puzzler all the same. No written or verbal instructions, everything is visual. 5 chapters each with tasks and a main goal to achieve. The playtime is fairly short, but worth the time.

Winner of the Association of Illustrators Award, features 100% hand-drawn art and animation. Its soundtrack was composed by well-known British composer Thom Robson with the aim of captivating and immersing the player as he or she takes their time to solve puzzles and enjoy the organic world of Morphopolis.

Usually found on sale for less than $1 or in a bundle. The artwork and music alone is worth that.

I was gifted this game by a generous friend, and gave it a shot. Although the game is short -takes roughly 1 hour to complete- it is worth it. The art is nice, and the puzzles are well-thought. Would recommend trying it out, more than so if you get it in a bundle/ on sale.

Fun, casual puzzle game. The core gameplay can be described as a "find the object" or "I, Spy" game. You look for a number of items hidden in the 60's psychedelic album cover-esque background.

Mixed into that are various puzzles ranging from simple to difficult. So while the game is mostly laid back and casual there are some puzzles that will really test your abilities and may even require a guide.

Some control/interface issues exist that sully the game a bit but ultimately I'd reccomend it, particurlary as part of the Art Aprecciation bundle.

This game is going to bring you about 1-2 hours of enjoyment and some struggle for the brain. It dosen't tell you anything with text which makes the struggle harder than it could be, and all in all that works out for the better. It's not one of those games I feel like I'll ever get back to run again. But it has a lot going for it both in the musicscore and visually. It kindof feels like looking at and analysing a painting and suddenly the painting comes to life, take that and add on some puzzles that are tricky, but simple enough for anyone to figure them out.

For the price I'd say it's really worth picking up, if not then look at a let's play of it so you can enjoy it that way.

-rep scammer, It all started in 6th grade.....This is how "HE" scammed me, He told me to send him pics.......you know......the bad kind and I said "naw bra, I anit live dat life" then he said "Braaaaaa I am fina suing ya" I quickly left my seat.......and took the pics......after I took the pics I sent them. He showed every one......I did not know what else to do, I felt alone......defeted.....all my emotions got to me......The only thing I thought to do was..............To take more pics.....but better, this time in 1080P and after I took them I sent them and he got jelly, so he sent me some pics, I said "hal naw bra, that dope af pics", I lied to him.......I told him they were good.......but in my heart I knew they were bad. every one at school made fun of him and I got his back, he started hangout with the bad kids, at school. they started selling drugs and stealing, I knew it was all my fault. I called the po-po and they caught them selling dope, He went to jail. 20 years later I saw him on facebook, he said we were all good. and he wanted to hang, we meet at a bar and he told me he had steam.....so did I, so I sent him a freind request and we started playing csgo, I bought a csgo key and I got some kind of factory new knife, I always grew up thinking that kinfes were danger! so I was going to sell it, but he told me that they were only worth 3 cents.....and I have ODC and I can only sell stuff for even numbers so I got upset and I took a knife and.......and.....I could not control my self........I just could not.....and got arrest......I got arrested for going into a mattres store, and i asked the store onwer where is the best one, he took me to it, I went to sit in it and it felt rock hard.....and was angry at him, I pulled out my knife and I pulled off the sheets and (You know that lable on the mattres that says "DO NOT REMOVE) well I removed that. and the mave called 911 and I got sent to downtown. I was in there for about 72 days, worst 71 days of my life, (the first day was the best becuase some cool guy put his hand in my pocket.....but I stared to get odd so I punched him and everyone in jail say I was worthless and stared calling me names. after my jail time was done, I came back online to play csgo and I told him what had happend, he said "lol loser I scammed you that knife you had was worth $50.00, an even number" I went to the commuity market and I saw it was worth $53.87 the price had changed since my jail time....then he said, that he had a trading card that was worth $2.00 and the card was NEVER going to change price, so I traded then the card went to $1.69 and i got so mad and said trade back, he said "Naw bra, a trades a trade and a baby is a baby" (it was a really good quote not going to lie) then I got so angry and reported him then steam called and they said what did he do, I told them and then they were craking up and called me a loser! so Thats the story about how He scammed me.

Game like this are why I wish steam had a middle option for reviews.

Pros:

-AMAZING ART this game is stunning in its art and design
-Surprisingly fun yet difficult puzzles (with one exception)
-Rather cheap, though it s up to you as it is short

Cons:

-DONT BUY THIS IF YOU DONT LIKE BUGS, its bug centric and would be very creepy for those who dont enjoy them.
-Movement is terrible, you will shift screens often by accident and movement is slow enough to be very irksome.
-Length, its only about an hour-hour 1/2 of gameplay if you are good at puzzles, with only the last puzzle take a long time and being rather annoying rather than fun.

So while ill put it as recommend, its very much up to the player to decide if it was good or not.
