The aim of the game is to try and reach a population of one-million. The game runs in real-time, so you have to check in two or three times a day to make sure your planet has the right conditions for life.
There are two controls: Sunlight ON/OFF, and Rain ON/OFF. You need about 12 hours of sunlight per day, and 12 of darkness, otherwise your planet's vegetation either scorch or wither. You also need the right balance of water - too little and the plants die; too much and your people drown!
I've had the game running on my tablet for a couple of weeks and I thought I would share my quest to reach one-million population.
|My planet just after 'The creation.'|
|After a flood of biblical proportions, my population has recovered nicely and I have a good balance of light and water. My civilisation should prosper.|
|This god is saving up for a good Earthquake.|
|Ooops! It is too easy for a god to leave the rain on. Here's hoping my population have learned how to build boats, because there isn't a button for that.|
