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.
Pro A great game for 4X and casual strategy gamers alike
Civilization Revolution is a 4X game in its veins, but it'll also appeal to players who are less experienced with sophisticated gameplay elements. For example, the amount of strategy that is required in Civilization is quite extensive. As a player, you constantly need to control many different aspects of the game in order to defeat your adversaries.
Con Features in-app purchases
Altough the entry price of $2,99 is quite low compared to other 4X strategy games, the developers try to make up for it with in-app purchases. The IAP's are relatively small, ranging from $0.99 to $3.99. Nonetheless, nobody likes microtransactions in a paid game.
