The game is beautiful, very colorful and imaginative, and that is all that you would want from a game like this.

I'm pretty sure that If you are very bored this could consume 2 hours of your time just looking at the artwork.

The mechanics are nothing to write home about and the puzzles are kinda neat... but very simple (also the bug is slow AF).

Overall I would rate Morphopolis an 7.5/10

As someone who is actively working with designs that require hours of work, I can say that this game is a work of art. I loved the designs! Just a little bit further into the game and it becomes obvious that every inch of Morphopolis was created with dedication and enthusiasm wrapped with art.

If you're into a slow-paced, relaxing, artsy game with a side of puzzle stuff, I'd recommend it. 7/10

Its one of those artzy games that solely focus on visuals and lacks in pretty much everything else, its not a bad game though and well priced for what you get if your into the puzzle and click genre then you will enjoy it.

Are you an entomologist or botanist who believes in reincarnation and enjoys hallucinogens? Have I got a game for you!

Morphopolis is a hidden object type game with some puzzles thrown in intermittently. The puzzles are fairly typical, and not that difficult. I beat the 5 levels in about an hour.

While a little psychedelic, the artwork is beautful. The music is also very nice.

There are no words in the game, so I'm not exactly clear on the "plot," but it seems to be about a bug that brings larger, dead bugs back to life and inhabits them somehow, which is curious and slightly disturbing, but just try not to focus on that part.

All in all, I'd give it a 6 out of 10. Pretty, but otherwise pretty uninteresting. Get it on sale.

This is a real art of game development. It's not rly a game but a masterpiece.
Pleasant relaxing music and some not very difficult puzzles. You have to be attentive in details to complete all the puzzles without tips :)
The only minuses:
1. It's too short. It will take you 1,5-2 hours to complete the game
2. Not very easy control. So sometimes it rly makes you mad :D

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
