hey, stop trying to steal my Molyneux-worshipping, long review-writing crown!

btw, are you sure of the release date on this? surely it was after Pop 2?

according to all my sources of information, it has been released in 1992!

and populous 2 has been published in 1993.

did i make a statement that it has been published AFTER pop 2?

No, no, it just seems odd that PM has some more advanced features (like rotating and zooming the map for a start) than Pop2. Oh well, wahtever. Might have to give it a try - never actually played this one!

I remember buying this game a looong time ago. I never did manage to get it to run on a newer computer, though. It always freezes whenever I start a new game, even with dosbox and VDMSound. Does anyone else have this problem?

Thank you.
