Not worth the £0.75
This game is very boring.
You have to do a boring switch puzzle on a flower and you have to feed a caterpillar popcorn for no particular reason.

1/10 ign would not play again

A fun little puzzle game with astounding visuals.
Morophopolis combines hidden object platform with other logic puzzles ranging from tangram jigsaws to tricky Rubick's Cube style teasers.
Many of the puzzles are quick to get through and the formula is repetitive but the game is short enough that is doesn't get tedious.

Having paid only $0.37 for a 3-game bundle I would say it was a morning well spent.

This game is a short but truly amazing puzzle game! The artwork in this game is outstanding and the music is really well composed. The puzzles in this game become harder as you move on and the last puzzle is pretty challenging.

If you like puzzle games pick this up immediately! For the prize this game is at you are definitely getting your money's worth.

If you don't care about artwork in puzzle games however then maybe this isn't for you. This game is pretty short and if you just want a challenging puzzle game you might wanna look further.

Morphopolis is a stunningly beautiful point and click/hidden object game. Now I usually have some dislike towards hidden object games, but the style presented within Morphopolis makes up for that.

There really is no story in Morphopolis. You are an insect who goes through several metamorphic changes. However Morphopolis should not be played for the story. It should be played for the atmosphere. Adding to the very colourful and fantastical world is the soundtrack. Now even though the soundtrack is not quite remarkable or rememberable, it does add to the atmosphere.

As with many puzzle games, the learning curve is important. The puzzles within Morphopolis are common throughout the genre. Thus, being common, they are fairly easy, with the last one being the most difficult. That is great for the learning curve, however Morphopolis does not have any creative or new puzzles, which are always welcome in a point and click game. Another flaw is that you move incredibly slowly throughout the level, and if you miss something and have to back track it becomes tedious.

With all that being said, Morphopolis is a colourful world on a bare bones hidden object/point and click game. If you want a casual and bright experience, I would pick up Morphopolis on sale as part of the Art Appreciation Pack.

After completing all the game achievements I decided to make a review, for me, this game was indeed enjoyable, but got frustrating some times, specially on the last level, it took me about 2 hours to complete it. If you like this type of games, buy the Art Appreciation bundle, it has 2 more with quite the same content.

Pros:
- Good soundtrack and SFX.
- Unique gameplay.
- Challenging and difficult levels.
- Cheap game.
- All achievements can't be missed.

Cons:
- Can get frustrating.
- Random patterns everytime on some puzzles.

In my opinion, I think it is worth to get this game, but buying the Art Appreciation bundle when it is on sale, if you have some money, you can just get the game, but I'd not recommend that.

I like it enough to give it a recommendation, it's quite slowpaced and sometimes it's a bit unclear (to me) how to continue on, but haven't run into any actual roadblocks. It's something you could do for 15 minutes or so and than close without really caring whether you've made progress. The artwork is really nice, the music is relaxing, and you can take as long as you like to complete a level. Like someone else mentioned though, if you're freaked out by bugs you might want to skip it, they can be pretty close up and detailed.

The game is certainly cheap however it never justifies the time you spend with it

The game can be simulated by throwing a bucket of lego on the floor than trying to find all of a certain type of block while occasional someone stops you and 'Rewards' you with puzzles that wouldn't be out of place on one of those childs placemats you see in family restaurants.

The game actively goes out of its way to make things last longer. rather than clicking between screens you move an insect around preset paths in the artwork at a frustratingly slow pace. These paths are incredibly difficult to pick out so you just end up pushing your avatar in a direction to see if he can go that way or not. When the game inevitably asks you to back track you end up waiting a painful amount of time for what is little more than a screen change. In a baffling choice of design there is even a delay on identyfying items to progress while they slowly move across the screen to your 'counter' before they are registered and allow progression.

I know an awful lot of fuss has been made over the artwork of the game but I think it fails. When still every screen is a painting and certainly striking. However as an interactive medium there are hardly any subtle pointers of where you can go. Why can you climb here and not there? Because the game says so and thats it. Being able to find out where you are allowed to go let alone where you should go is simply a case of trial and error for the most part.

It's got very good artwork, however, that doesn't excuse it for having poor gameplay. A point and click game needs to have responsive clicks. There were many times that I had to click multiple times to get the game to register them. Moving your character around was a pain, occasionally he would start dancing back and forth instead of heading in the direction you had your mouse in. The characters movement speed was painfully slow, which made the levels annoying when they started requiring you to go back and forth between screens collecting things. Finally, it's extremely short, less than 2 hours of content, most of that is waiting for your character to make it to the next screen.

If you want to appreciate the artwork, just find some screenshots. There's so few levels that it would only take you a minute to see the whole game.

The gameplay isn't terribly memorable. It's basically a hidden object game with some light puzzle solving elements. Ah, but the art and the atmosphere! The vibrant, lush artwork is worth the price of admission on its own. This must be what the jungle looks like after a cup of Ayahuasca.

Morphopolis is a game about bugs, some of the smallest creatures in the world and they are rather fascinating and very important to our environment aswell.

This game is a point and click game with puzzles to solve and hidden objects to discover and find, this will help the small bug on its journey of life. This is a very pretty and colourful game, and not very difficult to play.

Also you must complete each chapter, if you decide to stop halfway through you will have to start from the beginning of that chapter, as there is no exit feature while in a level so I just completed them and exited the game afterwards.

Morphopolis is a very short game and the achievements are easy to earn. I found the last puzzle rather challenging, but I managed to solve it and get 100% achievements :)

I have enjoyed my time playing with the bugs and admiring the lovely art and colours, thankyou for this lovely gift. ;D

MORPHOPOLIS is a gorgeous-looking, casual slow-burn puzzler fueled by hidden object elements; one that I recommend with the caveat that it will certainly not be for everyone. While not brutally difficult, it is a sometimes frustrating experience that it is well-suited for the casual puzzle and artistic game fan. There is little direction; and the lack of the ability to save while in the middle of one of MORPHOPOLIS' five beautiful segments is rough, as the inherent beauty of this game is it's calm, wickedly slow movement and it's mesmerizing artwork. So failing to finish a segment during a sitting results in the dreaded do-over, with your ever-morphing insect ponderously revisiting the beautiful yet limited screens.

That said, the episodes are fairly short, and the game can be finished in a short span (as short as 90 minutes), with all achievements. But there is the rub; this is not a game you speed through; it is one you savor. And for someone like myself who's immersion is often limited to nights and weekends by work exhaustion or time constraints, I thoroughly enjoyed playing through the various trials of our weary bug, as a calming cool down for the brain if you will... Though the puzzles vary from fairly difficult to rather simple, puzzle veterans may have a leg up on recognizing what it is you are supposed to actually do. There is zero direction... but hit the discussion board for the concept, and off you go. Only other minor fret was that in some cases, the hidden object items you are required to collect are quite difficult to discern and at times don't really resemble what you need to find; and I am not hot on clicking randomly as a strategy.

Still, for what it is, MORPHOPOLIS succeeds in being an engrossing, beautiful, casual, albeit short experience that is worth a go if you want to step away from the bullet hell for a moment. If you enjoy it for what it is, you are bound to be rewarded with a fun little puzzler that is certainly like no other...
