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.

A good game to kill time. ;)

I like it. It's a fun way to pass the time on a boring, rainy day (I literally played this for 2 hours straight my eyes burn asdfghjkl).
Only complaint is that it becomes very repetitive after a while and that it's a bit tedious and time-consuming to end each battle/round. Aside from that, great game and much room for improvement. Maybe a sequel?

Great Game

I really liked this game but am stuck on level seven normal. How do you get the achievement? I have tried everything I can think of to beat the enemy in under 5 minuets but can't even come close. If you know how please let me know NoSpamPleaseLOL@yahoo.com

Takes too long.

I like it but it takes forever to win a battle, especially when both civilizations are building and fighting simultaneously.

The game is so awesome.

But there are plenty of room to improve.maybe you can add more faction in it and more terrain that'll be kickass.
