The Civilization franchise is well known for its great 4X-gameplay and the Revolution game is a great representation of the genre for iOS devices. The gameplay, a real-life representation of world leaders and fun artstyle are many of the reasons why Civilization Revolution is a popular mobile strategy game. Although the publisher 2K Games has released a sequel for iOS, the first game remains one of the best games in the 4X genre thanks to its simplicity, fun 2D artstyle and low entry price.
