Empires are controlled from three main views: the Campaign Map shows the entire game world, including mountains, forests, coastlines, oceans, rivers, cites, and armies. The City Map gives players an overview of the structure and role of a city within the empire, and provides a basis for economic decisions. The Battle Map is to be used when diplomacy has run its course or when a city is being attacked, resulting in turn-based combat.
The game is graphically rich with fast paced addictive gameplay. It is ideal for newcomers to the turn based strategy game genre.

Apr 25, 2011To its credit, the game does feature a limited multiplayer feature, but on a whole it's MUCH easier to recommend Civilization: Revolutions to anyone interested in civ building on his/her iPad. While there's a difference in price point between the two games, sometimes you do get what you pay for.
