Godus is now available on Android device and, if you like playing the benevolent god card, you’re in for a treat. This little game began its journey on the PC but now it appears to have successfully transitioned to the smaller tactile screens. You can find the game free on Play Store.
In Godus you become the all-seeing hand which tries to nurture little stone-aged villagers transcend to better and more civilized lives. You can influence earth and water to make your climate better and as your little humans grow in power, so does your own: you can bless forests and crops and start fires too, as you can’t be a great god without some smiting, you know.
The game is in active development on OSX and Windows platforms and it comes from the developer Peter Molyneux, who is responsible for hits like Black and White, Dungeon Keeper and the predecessor Populous.
Godus gets multiplayer interaction through Facebook, where your world can be linked to other player’s world. The game is free to play which means it has some in-app ads and purchases too, just to get that extra currency for your power boost.
