If you like playing that classic game Civilization, but you’ve always thought that it needs to be a little faster or a little more frenetic, then you’d be happy to know that there’s such a game available on Android devices. No, it’s not from the makers of Civilization, but it’s pretty close, if by close you mean a five-minute version of the game. Rapture – World Conquest is now available for Android devices, and ready for you to conquer worlds and vanquish your enemies.
Basically, you play a god looking out for your followers and helping them to escape the impending apocalypse by sending down “miracles” that will devastate the enemy. You can choose from among 12 different ones, including meteors, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes (now you understand why the need for quotation marks on miracles). And did we mention that you have to do this in just a five minute blitz? So basically, it really is Civilization on steroids.
You have 18 different civilizations to choose from, all of which you can control and lead to victory (if the enemy doesn’t decimate them of course). And you can actually choose to play against 3 of your friends who are also online or even on local wifi. But you can also try to go against strangers of course, so you won’t feel bad when you send a plague upon their houses. But at the end of the day, it’s how fast you strategize and how quickly you can implement these strategies that will win you the 5-minute game.
You can download Rapture – World Conquest from the Google Play Store for free. There are in-app purchases available to help you along the way, but they’re also not necessary to be able to play the game.
