A series of turn-based global strategies from Sid Meier himself Civilization for desktop computers at one time became a real breakthrough in the genre. The game was so successful that no one doubted the sequel. With the advent of iPhone and iPad, some of the 'desktop' gamers migrated to mobile devices and there was a need to fill the vacuum of civilization for mobile systems. This is how Civilization Revolution was created and today its second generation is being tested. Civilization Revolution 2 is a continuation of the global turn-based strategy game for the most popular gaming platforms: PS3, XBOX 360, Nintendo DS, iOS, Windows Phone. The game was awaited with great impatience, especially by Russian-speaking gamers who experienced certain difficulties with the English language, tk. There are a lot of dialogues in the game, its own knowledge base, which you need to familiarize yourself with first of all, is also not clear to everyone in English You are the supreme ruler of one of the world nations (you can choose yourself or choose randomly), you begin to develop your civilization even before our era from one single settlement, which is the capital. Your task is to develop the empire and expand its borders. This can be done in several scenarios at once: the fastest possible expansion of unknown territories, you can conquer the settlements of other nations, choose a diplomatic course or victory through scientific achievements. Each strategy determines the direction of research and tactics of building structures in cities. In order to found the second, third and subsequent settlements in the capital, you need to build a settler. Do not rush to send it alone, pre-explore the territory, choose the most friendly geographical location. The more minerals of the useful landscape in the city zone, the faster your city and the entire empire will develop. At first, a small number of inhabitants live in the city, but as it develops, the city line will expand significantly and the zone of influence may increase so much that the inhabitants of neighboring cities (if they belong to another civilization) can join you and you will join your empire without a fight new settlement. You, as the supreme ruler, will need to monitor the quality of life of your population, the amount of food, gold and foreign exchange reserves, culture, science and construction. The contribution of individual cities largely depends on what territory it is located in: forests, hills and mountains add construction points; animals and wheat – food and so on. Try to choose the location of settlements in such a way as to quickly connect the boundaries of cities and thereby expand your empire. In addition to the construction of infrastructure facilities, defensive structures and military academies, you will need to independently choose the direction of science. The faster your scientists discover new technology, the faster you can build new structures, transition to a new form of government, or create new military units. You can trade and exchange technologies with neighboring nations, or you can forcefully demand compensation for the Non-Aggression Pact. Without a declaration of war, the territory of other nations is closed from visiting, so your task is to open uncharted territories as quickly as possible and expand with your settlers. The more cities, the more money, culture, construction and science points you earn. It is not possible to tell about all the possibilities and features of the game within the framework of one review, but it is not possible to mention that Civilization Revolution 2 still differs from the desktop version not for the better. Than? The transience of time. In just a couple of tens of minutes of real time, your nation will enter the Middle Ages, which took several hours in the desktop Civilization. Yes, this will not seem like a drawback to fans of fast entertainment, but those who are used to playing with a soul will feel uneasy. In App Store the game is sold for 279 rubles. Not much for a global turn-based strategy game from Sid Meier, but too much for a game that is addictive for several hours. The possibility of choosing scenarios and generating your own map with different levels of difficulty saves the situation a little, but hardly anyone will want to play the game over and over again. The game is available in a shared account.
