Default Populous - The Beginning [GOG]

One of my favorite oldies is Populous - The Beginning from Bullfrog. And still many players around who are playing it online using the matchmaker. :Brain:

I don't think even the general shape of the picture can be referenced to Populous in any ways. :bleh:

Let's get frank here, any game which take an awesome 2D concept like Populous and try to bring it to 3D will fail miserably if the goal is to try to make a game similar to the first.

Populous - The Beginning = Populous 3 :P

I played it a lot of times, and I even liked it so much that I made a map editor for it. It's so funny to see how good this game was for its time. Graphically, this game was perfect, and the gameplay was good too. So I got no bad words for this game. And the picture you see differs not so much from the original screenshot, except for the boat, the fish, and the tower...

Here a screenshot of the old populous:

Oh yeah, I guess you mean only 95% of the picture is irrevelant. My mistake! :bleh:

It looks like Empire Earth to me. My friend told me a few days ago that he had Populous 2 and after looking at Caesar 3 on my PC he told that is almost the same thing. Is that true? :blink:
