I was originally skeptical about what seemed to be a lightweight god game, but this is a lot of fun. It's like a cross between sim city's bulldozer tool and a god game, and the sheer enjoyment of ravaging an enemy settlement with your totem powers cannot be understated.
I found this game to be surprisingly good. If you've ever played populous you'll know what to expect. The game revolves around making the land even so that your town grows, at which point you go to war with other players. If you're interested, here's a video review I made : Youtube.com
A few complaints :
-The AI is atrocious. They've challenged me but never actually threatened me.
-Multiplayer would have made this game incredible.
-Being able to generate maps by designation, rather than by chance would be nice as well.
Great game! I missed Populous (2) when it was first around -- I had a C64 at the time. So thanks for the opportunity, now I can make up for it. :)
However, I can't seem to notice that the game is bit too easy. The enemies are very passive -- it's as if they didn't have anything better to do than wait for the player to clobber them on the head. Maybe I am mistaken, but I feel as if the enemies were more aggressive in the flash version?
