Civilization Revolution now available for your iPhone/iPod Touch

civilizationrevolution_preview1

Civilization is arguably one of the most, if not the most, recognizable and well liked turn-based strategy (TBS) video games around. For many, the Civilization series can be considered an essential collection on any PC/Mac, including TMA’s very own shigzeo (Civilization 2) and myself (Civ 4). Well, that day has come where you too can advance through the ages and conquer the world via your iPhone/iPod Touch, as 2K Games has released Civilization Revolution at the App Store. For those not familiar, the “Revolution” series was first introduced in 2008, where its entire core was rebuilt from the ground up to better serve the console and mobile platforms. While not as deep and engaging as the orginal, Revolution manages to keep the civ experience alive and is still highly addictive and fun. Is it worth the $4.99 and does it all translate well on the iPhone? For hardcore fans, I’d imagine they’d easily pay double that. Fortunately, for those new to the series or maybe holding out, 2K has included a free lite version to help whet your appetite.
