The world's best god game just got even better. Sam Meier's epic history of the human race is now available on the A1200 and looks set to wow you all over again. Civilization enables you control the destiny of one of eight tribes who are locked in a bitter struggle for power. In the beginning you've only got brute force and the sheer will to survive on your side, but as you explore more and more of the world, you discover a whole range of scientific discoveries which enable you to leapfrog your opponents and gain the upper hand. The thing to remember, of course, is that your Amiga-controlled rivals are all trying to do the same to you.
The great thing about Civilization first time around was its sheer addictability and ease of use - even if you had never played a god-game before you soon got the hang of it and were hooked for months. Not surprisingly, the A1200 version looks and plays even belter with a beefed-up graphics palette and stereo sound samples. The overall look of the game has been changed in a subtle way - waves lap the shore on the map screens while the animations have become smoother and more detailed. The sound effects also help to boost the game's realism with strident martial music when you come under attack, or hammering sounds when you're building one of the world's Great Wonders. It all adds up to an electrifying and absorbing gameplaying experience.
Forget Populous 2, Mega-lo-mania and all those other pretenders to the crown, the A1200 version of Civilization sets the standard for all god-games. Superb.
Very popular game, also available on many platforms. Time rounded strategy game, with simple graphics, but many options and features. You have to rise up your Civilization and play through the rest of the history.
Nation building simulation/strategy game
AGA version of Civilization with a lot better graphics. Everything else is the same.
I could write about this one all day long but I'll try to be short. This is definitely the best game ever made (actually, the only one that is better then Civ is Civ II). Ok, here's about the game: You start with a group of settlers that should be used to make Your first city. From this point You can build new units (military or settlers, and later even diplomatic), city improvements or wonders of the world. Spread Your civilization, encounter others, make contacts, sign peace agreements, go to war, destroy others and try not to be destroyed. Discover new advances and move from stone to nuclear age. Many different military units (from militia, legions and catapults to musketeers, ironclads, artillery and even nuclear bombs!), city improvements (such as temples, marketplaces, factories,...) and wonders of the world (Lighthouse of Alexandria, Great library, Hanging gardens, UN building,...) make Civ world huge and always new. Sid Meier is a genius and Civ is all-time game no.1!!!
Civilization 1 is the strategy game I have played most whether it is for Amiga or PC. You start the game by choosing what kind of world you want to play the game in. You can choose from the real Earth, a random map or your own customized one. After that you will have to chose what civilization you want to control and then the game really takes off.
The overall goal in the game is to destroy all the other civilizations or discover a new planet before the other civilizations. It all depends on which way you are heading - through combat, trade or a mixture between these two things. There are several things you will have to research in order to succeed like gunpowder, writing, the steam engine, medicine etc.
You can establish trade routes, build up your cities, build armies and expand your civilization with things like irrigation, road building (railroads when you have discovered it) and mining. There are very good options to find a suitable game level as you can choose on several different computer levels. The graphics are ok, but it's not what Civilization became famous from.
This game works best when installed to the hard drive and requires you to use Kickstart 3.1.
