Civilization Revolution 2 makes its way to Android
Android users have been missing out on Civilization games for quite some time now. When Civilization Revolution 2, the first mobile-optimized game in the Civilization series, first came out, it was unfortunately an iOS exclusive. Now Android fans can play the game on their mobile devices as well.
If you aren’t already familiar, Civilization Revolution 2 is a turn-based multiplayer game that allows you to build an empire that will outlast the others. This second iteration brings a slew of new features and extras, including a new civilization, along with new leaders, units, technology, buildings, and wonders. 2K Games has also largely enhanced the graphics, and added a Scenario Mode, that allows users to reenact historical events and battles.
This is one of the more pricey games on the Play Store, coming in at $14.99. On the bright side, there are no in-app purchases. The game’s creator, Sid Meier, explains, “[Freemium games] are about designing unhappiness. You have to design a game so not fun that people will pay to make it fun. That kind of goes against the grain of game design.” Whether you agree with Meier’s opinion or not, the price tag is still much higher than many users feel comfortable paying. Still, this is a huge game with tons of replay value, so fans of the Civilization Revolution series may not have a hard time paying it after all.
If you’re interested, pick up the game from the Play Store today! Have you played any of the Civilization Revolution games yet? How do you like them? Let us know if you’re thinking of buying it!
