A god-game in the old-school style of the Bullfrog classic, "Populous".
Be an Aztec God.. create flat land so your followers can build temples. Accumulate mana from their worship then use your powers to smite the unbelievers! Gain extra mana by sacrificing your followers, but be careful not to wipe out your own civilisation!
Beware though; The computer controls a rival God and will do everything in its power to destroy your followers...
I've done my best to include all the game-play features that made the original Populous so addictive. The major differences are in some of the spells, and you can't directly control the 'Magnet'. You can however sacrifice your own population (when you have temples) to gain mana quickly ready to cast plagues, floods or armageddon!

Many thanks to the brilliant team at Bullfrog who made Populous, still one of the most memorable games from that era.
