THis game is by no mean bad, but it really takes time to get into its gameplay and have fun with it. You can spend hours on hours on this game, but you have to keep in mind that it will become repetitive after a while.

Almost, not quite....
Classic Bullfrog God-Sim gets to ported to the DS by Japanese devco Genki and despite the addition of new modes - including a full fledged Single Player mode - and feature sets from all 3 previous Populous titles, the game itself is unfortunately undermined by the developers decision to split the gameplay over 2 screens with the action on the top screen manipulated by a wireframe representation on the bottom screen. It just feels too awkward. Still, the Populous magic is there, however faintly, and at under 10 bucks it's worth a shot...

fun classic game, but too simple for today's game standard
populous ds is a first god video game.

gameplay is simple. just make a flatland for people to build houses.then order people to fight against demons.

it is a classic game but too simple, so you maybe get boring easily.
