Revival isáaáturn-based military strategy game inátheábest traditions ofátheáworld-famous game title, Civilization. You will have toáexplore continents, direct battles onáland andásea, build towns, develop science andáuphold theáeconomy ofáhisáempire!
Great events take place inátheáworld ofáRevival: grand empires areácreated; highly developed states collapse ináaáflash, science degrades andárises again, brutal wars never end, great wealth isácreated inátheámillions but can be lost just asáeasilyů Theáeternal struggle forápower isátheámark ofáthis world, andáonly theábest ones willábe blessed witháabsolute rule. Unconquerable general oráinborn diplomat? Talented economist orácrafty politician? You choose your path toáeternal glory ináthe world ofáRevival.
From a gameplay perspective, I think Revival is the best thing you'll find on the PocketPC for a turn based strategy game. Once you know how to go about your business the game is fairly easy to navigate, and there's a lot to do.
The demo version of Revival gives the player access to the entire tutorial. Besides introducing you to the basic gameplay, the Tutorial is an excellent opportunity to explore the simplicity of the interface, and the complexity of the economy. It doesn't really give you much insight into the AI or combat, however. And replay value is nil, since the Tutorial follows a pretty linear path designed exclusively for introducing the player to the game.
Aesthetically, the game is a homage to the pre-windows era with its retro in-game graphics, brought into the 21st century with the inclusion of a very cool intro movie. The whole set-up is very easy on the eye, the menus and info windows are all as straightforward and un-complicated as they should be.
