Doesnt like being run in 1920 x 1080, it displays full screen but runs in a box, i know this because my mouse only works in the top left corner of the screen and if i click too far right the game minimises!

So, to be honest, I wouldn't have been able to complete this game without the guides (Thanks guys!). This is an extremely difficult puzzle game, and a fairly difficult hidden object type game. But, when you complete the puzzles it's super satisfying! It was worth the money paid (49 cents) and was a pretty well driven game.

A unique puzzle/hidden object game with a lovely art style and relaxing music. Puzzles not too taxing...but working out what I needed to do on a couple took a little time. Picked this up on sale for 19 pence and can't fault it for that price. Great way to spend a few hours on a rainy weekend.

Genre: Hidden Object, Point & Click, Puzzle
Release Date: August 14, 2014
Time to complete: 90 minutes

Introduction
Find hidden objects in this beautiful bug-inspired artistic puzzle game.

Gameplay
Morphopolis is a really cute bug-themed point and click puzzle game with a relaxing and atmospheric soundtrack. You play as various bugs as you solve puzzles and find hidden objects to progress to the next chapter. The game is very slow-moving, which was frustrating at times as you have to do a lot of back and forth movement between the different sections to find all the objects. The game doesn’t give any instructions, so you have to work it out for yourself. That’s not really an issue as the game is very straightforward, however there were some points where I wasn’t entirely sure how to proceed and thus spent a lot of time slowly moving from place to place, trying to work out where to go.
There is no save function, so if you don’t complete a chapter (there are 5), you have to start it over. This wouldn’t be an issue for me if the movement wasn’t so incredibly slow. The chapters aren’t particularly long though, so it’s not so bad (though, a save feature would be a nice addition).

Difficulty & Challenge
The hidden object component isn’t particularly difficult, but the few puzzles scattered throughout the game do increase in difficulty as the game goes on, the last puzzle being quite a brain teaser. It took me roughly 90 minutes to complete the whole game, but your play time will likely be significantly less than mine if you’re good at puzzles (evidently, I’m pretty average at them!). Only a mouse is needed to play Morphopolis, so the controls add to the simplicity of the game.

Graphics & Art
It’s no secret I’m drawn in by ’pretty’ games, and that was a major component in my decision to purchase Morphopolis. All of the art and animation within the game is completely hand-drawn with beautiful, vibrant colours, and is very pleasant to look at (unless of course you’re not a fan of creepy crawlies).

Soundtrack
Simple, serene and effective; the soundtrack is largely what makes this game so relaxing, with simple instrumentals coupled with sounds from nature.

Replay Value
Because it’s a puzzler, once you’ve worked the puzzles out the first time, there’s probably no real point playing it again.

Achievements
All the achievements in Morphopolis can be obtained simply by playing through the game. An easy 100%!

Overall Verdict
Because of the enjoyable few hours of gameplay Morphopolis gave me, I would definitely recommend it (especially on sale, I picked this one up for only 50 cents and it seems to go on sale frequently). It provides just enough challenge to keep it interesting, and the simplicity makes it a great choice for all age groups.

Overall Score: 6/10

This game is about the life stages of a bug. The art and music in this game are very relaxing. There are also puzzles on each level you must solve and figure out. Some people have issues with these puzzles, but just go watch some youtube videos if you get stuck as this is how i figured out last hardest puzzle in the game.

I recommend this game for Artistic styles and music in it. The storyline is non-existent, but i feel this game does not need a storyline. It just involves a bug evolving into different forms.

Just a short little game about life of bugs. Has some lovely art, animation though is lackluster.
Basically you get regular hidden object gameplay and few puzzles for 2 bucks.
Kinda average, but potenital is there.

Overall I loved this game. It was not to long. The puzzles were difficult but not impossible, and they were satisfying. The game's art is beautiful and has a unique style put into it. It can be difficult to guide your bug through the levels, and it can be difficult to find 13 small berries on a 3 stage map, but it just took time and a little concentration. At times the game was easy and repetitive, but the different places that the bug went and the different puzzles and things to do kept it mostly entertaining.

I would reccommend this game to anyone who likes getting perfect achievement games, likes great art, slow relaxing games, or just wants to try it. If you pick it up in a winter/summer sale or during one of its' better sales it is only .49 cents in the U.S.A. so I do not believe it is not worth the money.

A nice short game where you must search for various hidden objects. At times the controls can be a bit bad. Also the insect you control moves around agonizingly slowly. The final puzzle is very difficult, if you really don't get it then visit meekee7.github.io/beetlepuzzlesolver for a solution (this link works as of 8th September 2016). The music is also somewhat nice.

I don't like bugs.
When I first started playing I was kinda creeped.
But when I finished I came to the comclusion that it's pretty cool
c:
I'm a sucker for hidden object, and puzzels.
And this had a little of both.
