Civilization Revolution 2 for AND, iOS and WP brings a continuation to a spin-off installment of a classic turn-based strategy game series developed since the 1990s by Sid Meier and subsequent studios he has led. Contrary to the first installment of the subseries developed specifically for home consoles and hand-helds, Revolution 2 was originally released for mobile devices, thus it is not the case of a console port this time.
General gameplay formula developed by the Civilization series remains unchanged in Revolution 2 for AND, iOS and WP. In order to achieve global domination, the player chooses from among several nations available, such as the French or the Egyptians. The game begins in the ancient period and the player has little resources and few territories. Gaining power over the world requires expansion and building new towns, as well as gathering resources, developing technologies and recruiting armies. Sooner or later, development leads to encountering other civilizations – one can establish trade relations, negotiate alliances or declare wars for example. Victory can be achieved in several ways – it can be done through military conquest, but also technological, economic or cultural domination, etc.
Civilization Revolution 2 for AND, iOS and WP is different to its predecessor mainly in terms of the contents. The successor introduces new combat units (such as special forces), technological inventions (modern medicine, lasers and more), as well as buildings and wonders to be constructed, or previously unavailable nation leaders.
The largest change introduced here since the predecessing game lies in technicalities however, because instead of 2D graphics resembling NDS titles, the creators decided on three-dimensional equivalent. As a result, Civilization Revolution 2 looks significantly closer to the installments released for PCs and home consoles. The version for AND, iOS and WP belongs to the Premium category, thus for a relatively high price, the player receives a game with no microtransactions.
