Product Details:

In the beginning, there was nothing but a void, and from the void five gods created the world, each exercising their great power to shape the world with five different but brilliant colors. Earth created the basis for all things; Water soothed it; Fire imbrued it with vitality; Wind breathed into it freedom; Harvest provided it with nourishment. Fish, beasts, and finally beings called man came into existence. The power of the gods brought harmony among all living things and the world gave way to an age of glory. However, prosperity created darkness in the hearts of man, and from that darkness demons were birthed. The demons controlled the same five elements as the gods and rose against them. A chaotic battle for the world had begun. Thus opened the gates of an age of darkness, where man trembles in fear, helpless as the awesome powers rage around them. It marked the beginning

A completely re-imagined remake of the Populous PC classic from Electronic Arts that launched the god-sim genre, Populous DS brings the power of the gods into the palm of the player's hands. The unique features of the Nintendo DS improve upon the original with touch-screen controls, dual-screen layout, and wireless versus play with up to four players. The gameplay is fresh for returning players as multiple gods each with their own unique miracles have been added. All new play modes and areas appear, along with favorite classic maps from previous editions of Populous.
  • A Classic is Reborn on the Nintendo DS - The interface is built around the stylus and touch-screen controls while retaining the feel of the classic. Actions taken on the touch-screen play out on the top screen.
  • Additional Gods and Miracles - Five different elementally imbued gods, each with their own unique miracles and demon counterpart, are now selectable rather than just one.
  • More Single-Player Missions and Variety - Challenge Mode with 50 missions to clear as well as Free Play Mode including a "Find The Warrior" mini-game.
  • 4-Player Wireless Multiplayer - Versus Mode allows up to four players to compete, unleashing disasters such as earthquakes, tidal waves and volcanic eruptions to wreak havoc on opponents' lands!
  • A Must-Have for Populous Fans - The most popular and classic maps from previous editions pay homage to the roots of this legendary series.
