Did you ever play with legos growing up? I was a huge fan of the little plastic bricks that were invented in Denmark. You have so many options to use your imagination and built the most creative things. Toys, houses, castles and complete landscapes. The civilization games are the virtual equivalent to that. Just way more complex. You can build a whole town with everything you can think of. Now the simulation has an installment exclusive for mobiles.
Some of the most interesting games to play for mobile are turn-based strategy games. I've played dozens of them over the course of a few years, but I knew I had found something special when I stumbled across Civilization Revolution 2.
Although every aspect of the game is not entirely accurate, there is plenty in the game that will help my young children learn what it takes to build a society, and even learn a bit about how our country was founded.
If you are looking for a game that does more than entertain you and your family, then head to the play store and download Civilization Revolution 2, you won't regret it!
In any decently made turn-based strategy, you will have to build structures and formidable forces to protect yourself. Much is the same in Civilization Revolution 2, but the things you build and protect in this game are all things we actually had to construct and fight for in order to build the United States of America.
You'll be able to reenact wartime scenes from the Civil War, and many other battles you may have heard about in those history books at school. If you happen to be a history buff, then you will love the many historical scenarios you find yourself in the middle of, including the signing of the declaration of independence!
Any society has to complete specific monumental tasks in order to properly advance and thrive. I enjoy how realistic it feels to build my empire in the game; I expected there to be silly additions to the game that made no sense historically, but everything I've come across so far seems relevant.
You must build power plants to give power to your people, strengthen your military and send them to fight foes and work on the advancement of the field of science.
One of the things I like the most about the game is how smooth and almost cartoon-like the graphics are. Although the graphics might remind you of a historical cartoon at times, there are still plenty of realistic images to keep the game feeling authentic.
Just like the graphics, the games controls work flawlessly as well. There are no over the top controls to learn, and the interface is kept fairly clean. Because of this, your kids could easily pick up the game and start playing without too much need for help.
One of the things I did find strange about Civilization Revolution is that the app has not received an update in over 4 years, and yet there is still a price tag on the game.
I understand that any new customers bring revenue for the developers of the game, and everyone needs to get paid, but it seems as though there are plenty of things they could do to vamp up the playability of the game and give their players something new to explore.
Overall, history buffs will love playing this game, and kids will barely realize they are learning vital information about our history and actually having fun while doing it.
