Description: Miracles are child’s play. Earthquakes are serious fun. The all-powerful can perform miracles in their sleep. But omnipotence isn’t what it used to be. These days, it takes awesome natural disasters to dominate a world. You give them good land. You tell them when to farm and when to fight. You make them content beyond their wildest dreams. But then they become raging arsonists. What’s a deity to do? Disasters are your divine prerogative – volcanoes, quakes, swamps. For stubborn non-believers, nothing beats a flood for spring cleaning. Cruel ice, lush grassland, parched desert… With 500 worlds, a deity’s work is never done. Populous is the original god-game, a strategy title that lets you shape the isometric isometric world and the fates of its inhabitants. Be sure to check out one of Bullfrog’s earliest classics, from the mind of Peter Molyneux!
