Just when you thought you had finished playing Sid Mier’s Civilization or its 2008 iteration, Civ Revolution, at home, you can now take it with you. Sid Mier, 2K Games and Firaxis Games released Civilization Revolution this week for iPod Touch / iPhone gamers.
This game will cement the iPod’s growing status as a gaming device on the go.
“We choose platforms based on where we feel consumers will have the best gameplay experience, and the iPhone allows us to introduce this gameplay to mobile consumers – new and old,” says Meier.
Just like the console version, there are 16 playable civilizations and multiple difficulty levels. But for the mobile version, there is a gesture-based interface.
And when people thought swinging the iPhone/Touch around like Chuck Norris or a lightsaber was strange enough, now they can wonder what users are doing now, with sounds of clanging swords or victory cheers in the background.
This game is available for purchase through Apple’s App Store for an introductary price $4.99, allowing for 48 hours worth of playtime. Later on, it will cost the same like any other application at $9.99.
