  • A Classic is Reborn on the DS! - The interface is built around the stylus and touch-screen controls while retaining the feel of the classic. Actions taken on the bottom screen play out on the top screen.
  • Additional Gods and Miracles – 5 different elementally imbued gods, each with their own unique miracles and demon counterpart, are now selectable rather than just one.
  • More Single-Player Missions and Variety – Challenge Mode with 50 missions to clear as well as Free Play Mode including a “Warrior Hunt” mini-game.
  • 4-Player Wireless Multiplayer – Versus Mode allows up to 4 players to compete unleashing disasters such as earthquakes, tidal waves and volcanic eruptions to wreck havoc on opponents’ lands!
  • A Must-Have for Populous Fans – The most popular and classic maps from previous editions pay homage to the roots of the legendary series.


A completely re-imagined remake of the PC classic that launched the god-sim genre, “Populous DS” brings the power of the gods into the palm of the player’s hands. The unique features of the DS improve upon the original as touch-screen controls, dual-screens, and versus play with up to 4 players wirelessly have been implemented. The gameplay is fresh for returning players as multiple gods each with their own unique miracles have been added, while returning fans will recognize the classic maps from previous editions of Populous in homage to this legendary series.

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.
