The sad part is that the game physics and building look great. It is the cost of creating and the constant waiting that really bring it down. I started playing it again a week ago to give it another try and I got to unlocking mining and then it turned into twice as much waiting. That was way too much for me to have any fun so I stopped at that point.
I was really looking foreword to this game. I was hoping for a game closer to populous 2 or 3 as those are two of my favorite games of all time. The developers have taken godus in a direction I really didn't expect it to go. My heart is truly broken because if that.
I can only hope for a port of populous 2 or 3 to iPad sometime in the future. I bet it would sell well.
This. I haven't played Godus yet as I am waiting on the official release but really disappointed with all I have read. I wish they would do a mobile version of Populous and just charge a sensible price up front instead of all this freemium nonsense. By all means have in app purchases for additional content that is in no way required to play the game but things like timers etc. just make for a very poor experience.
Peter, give us Populous as a paid title or re-invent Godus as a paid up front equivalent to Populous please. I would happily drop £10 on Populous for my iPad but never pay a penny for freemium titles.
