As the God of your tribe you must protect and lead your people to victory over the other three competing tribes. Flatten the land so your peasants can find space to build settlements, and with the power that they give to you rain down disasters on your enemies' heads.

What's New in Version 1.3
- now uses OpenGL ES for smoother animation
This game is a very good clone of the classic Populous game, which I loved. Having only tried the 'lite' free version, there are a couple of points that would prevent me buying the full version...
1. Controls need improvement - it's very tedious tapping each piece of land to flatten it.
2. It does not appear you can raise land (explains the lack 'flood' disaster) which is a disappointment as you cannot destroy boulders / rocks created through a volcanic disaster - unless I missed that somewhere.
3. Would be nice if the controls could be optionally hidden off-screen for when you need to modify land near the map edges.
I'm sure there could be other improvements made too (map editor), but overall the game is very good and quite true to Populous, thankfully.
I would add that I have had no issues with the game crashing at all.
I'm looking forward to a new version!
I loved the Populous series. Read the reviews and decided to give it a try in spite of all the bad reviews. Well? I deleted this app before I even made it through the first game. The computer opponent immediately sends knights over before you can even take a minute to clear land. They don't even stop to fight. They just touch your structures (yes, even castles) and they immediately are ruined. This is at the very easy setting when you're trying to get the hang of the game. Truly a dissatisfying experience.
The New Populous
This game is almost exactly like Populous. It's a simple addicting game. I really enjoy it and I would buy the full version, but it's WAY overpriced and I don't know why.
