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.

  • CPU is unforgiving

    By Zeteginara
    Been struggling to win level one on very easy. It’s a lot harder than the original populous because everyone starts randomly on the map, and you have very little control over what your guys do. There is a huge random element to every aspect of the game, especially offensive spells. The game just isn’t fun. I played it for about a half hour, then deleted it. Was a waste of two dollars.
  • Not populous

    By Bippi the impaler
    Really really not what I was hoping when I searched for populous
  • Still need work to make it playable on Plus

    By kcwookie
    Yep still does not play in landscape mode on the iPhone 7 Plus, this makes the game difficult to play. I would happily give it a five star rating if I can play it on my phone. I remember the old Populous game from my Amiga good days, and jumped at the chance to get this game.
  • Needs more!

    By Freddieaggdhbcf
    Add sink holes or landslides! Create a modern militaristic version also. Add nukes, missiles, land mines and all that kinda stuff. Then would be a 5 star game.

    I wish I could give this game 5 stars. It is nostalgic of the first populous. However, the controls are not how I would like them. I would like to drag around the screen to add more land versus tapping, and please add Demi gods. Nice start!
  • Fun game, needs more levels.

    I love this Populous-style game. Though you run through the levels pretty quickly. There should be another set of levels called "extremely hard" since the "very hard" levels aren't all that hard. I wish you could create your own levels and could share created levels, but that'd be a big investment of the developer's time.
  • Love it

  • What?!

    By Amy McBacon
    This game has horrifyingly bad graphics and lacks any point whatsoever. Honestly, I want my money back. It's not fun. I just flatten the ground? THAT'S all I do? What?!
  • Good game, not yet great

    By ahelps
    This is a fun, good game with a lot of potential if the developer keeps polishing it. It has good bones but lacks sparkle. The core mechanic of raining down horrors on your enemies and prospering your tribe works very well. The graphics are so-so but they communicate what's happening. The controls are mostly natural. The "tutorial" levels are chaotic and undifferentiated. It would have been far better to start with colors isolated on their own islands to give new players a chance to experiment safely. The free-for-all chaos at the start of a level makes for more intense gameplay, but you'd expect the "very easy" levels to hold your hand a bit more. The difference between "very easy" and "hard" is subtle, not pronounced (more active enemy AI, I think?) One frustrating problem that bites you repeatedly is that you can't scroll beyond the level boundaries. When you're trying to flatten land on the edge of the map, frequently the bottom edge, you end up with accidental volcanoes instead, because the buttons are in the way. It would help a lot if landscape changes could be animated somehow. It's tricky to see what you're doing, and a bit of visual feedback for shaping the ground would help. I've spent a few hours playing this, and will likely spend more. I hope it keeps being upgraded!
