Populous II continues the “god game” genre pioneered by Bullfrog‘s classic Populous. In PII, you’re an unproven immortal who must fight your way through an entire pantheon of Greek gods, each with his or her own strategy and attacks, and ultimately enter into a showdown with Zeus himself.

The gameplay mechanics are similar to Populous, but PII features a wider array of spells, digitized sound, and high-resolution graphics to give the spell effects extra punch. Multiplayer is supported via serial link and dial-up.
Raising and lowering the landscape to an even level allows the allied humans to increase the size of their domiciles and create powerful fighter units, which in this game are specific Ancient Greek heroes that will cross the stage fighting the player’s enemies. In addition, the player can use an array of godly powers to help their citizens or eliminate those of their opponents. The quantity and variance of these divine intervention abilities have been greatly expanded in this sequel.
