Populous meets Civilization mastergame
Being an almighty game God is not easy, it takes all sort of skills, planning, strategizing, making decisions on so many levels. This game (known also as Ultimate Domain) will remind games like Black and White, Populous and many others of the God style games. The reason is that, from back in the early 90s era, Genesia is by far the most good looking game of its kind. On one hand the resolution is higher, and on the other the color palette of the game is very well chosen. This means that you will have a much more easy-on-the-eyes experience while playing. Other elements are common to the games noted above, the square map and the small islet of land onto which you can operate with the usual commands and interaction tools, from ground sculpting to all the other actions that you can accomplish. To top it all off, you can generate worlds randomly or pick from the 5 preexisting presets and go from there. I highly recommend this game to all those that found Molyneux's Populous games a little too pale and uninspiring. Genesia might not be as original but is certainly a good example for the God strategy game.
