A simple point and click game. Gorgeus graphics and a relaxing soundtrack. Acquire fruit, mushrooms and severed bug limbs to morph into the dead carcass of a bigger bug. Includes some puzzles, so you will need to poke your brain a bit.

The game shines in the art department but it's dull everywhere else.
It's a mobile port in nearly all the bad aspects of it, no options of any kind, mobile looking icons, hand instead of a mouse cursor.
Even though it is a short game (about 1 hour and 20 minutes) it ended with a mix of "thank god it's over!" with a "that's it?". The pace is bad, the ending was pretty much "hey, you finished the last puzzle, now the screen will just slowly fade out, you'll get an achievement and be sent back to the main menu".

I can't really recomend this, even at a discount there are better games in the point and click department on Kongregate that don't cost a penny and are paced just right.

Pros: Pretty graphics and nice music

Cons: Literally everything else about the game. No instructions where to go, no idea what paths you can walk on, you basically click aimlessly until you figure out what happens next, lots of pointless backtracking, you move painfully slow and the puzzles are more annoying than engaging.

I picked this up for like $1 but I wouldn't recommend it even if it were free. I want the two hours of my life back please.

Just finished the game for the first time and I must say - it's a beautiful piece of art. It's not long, took me just about 2 hours to finish but the thing with it is that you don't want to rush when you play it. It's a calm experience, cute in a way, with ambient music and beautiful graphics. Not for people who dislike insects and puzzles but otherwise - definitely worth to try it out.

I HATE THIS ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ GAME!!! TRY NOT TO BUY IT!!!

If you are a perfectism wanna complete all of it after completing the first trophy, then don't even open it.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ boring music with ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥-who-know-how-to-solve puzzles will drain every brain cell and tears from you.

Some says the graphic is good. Well, if you do stare at a shadow of a small leaf and try to guess where the leaf comes from a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ silly plant for one hour, you will never say so. That's not gonna be a problem though, because you are half blind after doing so.

I know many got it in a bundle, DO NOT OPEN IT or you will waste at least 2 hours of your precious life. Go enjoy GTA or DOTA or even goat simulator, don't waste time on this hell.

Morphopolis is a gorgeous P&C game bringing you through the life of a bug that morphs into other forms as it completes its journey. Where that journey goes exactly, is not really known, but you will point and click your way through several beautifully designed levels, finding hidden objects to unlock puzzles and continue onto the next stage.

The music is rather relaxing and don't get old too quickly but after a long while, you may just want to mute it and play your own music instead.

The puzzles aren't too hard but will require a bit of your brain to solve.

My biggest gripe is control. As you are controlling your little critter around, sometimes it gets confused or locks up and goes back and forth back and forth cause it doesn't really know what you want. Instead of pointing and clicking and your creature going there, you have to hold it, and not al paths are self-evident.

The game moves at a very slow pace, so if you're not in a realxed mood, don't bother to play it or you might get frustrated with the slow speed. Personally I think the game has no replay value, but for such a cheap game, did you really expect any?

Overall 6/10 - Get it on sale for an interesting mix of art, music and puzzles.

Not a particularly fun game, but it has clever puzzles and stunning visual art. It has a "Where's Wally" feel to it, only with insects, plants and pollen instead. For the games asking price it's worth a look. The games main problem is the incredibly slow gameplay which can be very frustrasting while collecting things, as you need to go back and forth all the time. When it comes to this aspect, pollen is your enemy. I am pretty sure the developer of this game has pollen allergy.

+ Visually stunning
+ Relaxing, much due to the music
+ Easy 100% achievements

- Very slow gameplay
- The gameplay is sometimes a bit unresponsive
- Brutal last puzzle

I got a discount for Morphopolis from crafting a badge for another game. For 50 cent I thought, one couldn't go wrong.

Obviously this is a Hidden Object Game with one Puzzle for almost every set of objects to find.
There are 5 levels which can easily be finished in an hour, or one and a half hours maximum.

PRO:
+ Graphics are cool, in a weird unusual way
+ Insect setting is something new
+ Nice ambient music
+ Okay level of difficulty

CON:
- You have to find out yourselves what the puzzles actually are about (a hint on the goal would be nice for some)

That last puzzle was just infuriating and made me cry few times. I needed more than a year to gather strength but I finally made it after so much time! Feeling too squeezed to write some nice review so I'll just say it's a very strange game but you'll love it's awesome visuals. And hate that last puzzle lol.

This is a wonderfull little game feturing a lot of bugs & plants. a pitty not more games center around our little companions.
its almost solely about atmosphere: butifull art, soft music & ambient sounds create a plessant feeling of forest undergrowth.

the gameplay is basicly a cross between where-is-waldo and some puzzles. the puzzles are short & easy but dosent get anoying or boring, they mostly serve to add to the feel of the game rather then preset challange.
there could be said to be a story here, but its only told throu you actions and nothing else so its very open to interpitation.

Its certanly worth an hour or two of your time.

Well, this one is done and dusted. It took me a little less than 2 hours to finish. This was a very beautiful point and click adventure where you follow the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a full blown cricket. Such lush colors abound within this game. The puzzles werent too challenging overall, but were appropriate to the game in every instance. There isnt really any sort of tutorial. You are just dropped in to figure it out on your own, and this shouldnt be a big deal at all for anybody. The only real knock on the game IMO was the music. The music was actually very pleasant and soothing, but man was it repetitious. I wish there had been full tracks rather than the same loop over and over. All that said, I very much enjoyed the game.

I give it 7.5 caterpillars changing into a form of higher consciousness out of 10.

When I first entered Morphopolis, I found myself inside a painting. Gentle background music embraced me, and I felt safe.
This game is a soothing emotional experience. It's about forgetting all your troubles and let yourself immerse in the colors, in the heart-warming atmosphere.
More on a technical side, Morphopolis is a 'hidden object' game, where you need to look around to find all the items from a list... and resolve puzzles.
It's one of those sweet, slow-paced relaxing games to play before bed, sipping a cup of tea.
Oh and it's only 0.99 Euro.

A beatifully drawn game with an equally beautiful soundtrack. I can recommend Morphoplis if you are looking for a serene experience of clicking hidden objects and solving puzzles. It is let down somewhat by the slow and clunky movement in the game, but given how simple the gameplay is, I can excuse it. The first time I played it though, I couldn't work out even the basic movement, which is essentially point in a particular direction and hold down the mouse button.

There are only certain paths you can follow through the foliage, and it's soon obvious where these paths are. The learning curve of working out what on earth you are supposed to be doing in this garden somehow adds to the dreamlike quality of the scenery, and there are no textual or spoken cues to stop you thinking like an insect interacting in its natural environment.

You should come to Morphopolis with a relaxed frame of mind, because otherwise you could get easily frustrated. It's the gaming equivalent of getting in touch with nature and living among the flowers. It is a very short, casual game, but leaves its mark on you, showing what else games can be than blood-thirsty war games.

A short hidden object, art gallery, puzzle game. Really beautiful backgrounds.
All of the puzzles are a different type so there's variety.
The bug moves slow so patience is needed. There's no explanation so you have to think it out.
It was a fun experience. I liked it.

This game is good.
The gameplay not the best but good. And the backround is good. The game is short so you don't have to play with this game a lot if you want to see end of the game.
You can do all achievements.
And you can get trading cards.
