Populous 2: Trials of the Olympian Gods

Populous 2: Trials of the Olympian Gods is an old sandbox strategy god-game. As the title suggests, the setting is more of less ancient Greek mythology and you're a god (hence the god-game label). Populous 2 is the sequel of the much acclaimed Populous, designed by Peter Molineaux. Populous 2 was developed by Bullfrog and published by Electronic Arts in 1993 for PC and Mac.

A data disk was also released for Populous II, titled Populous II: The Challenge Games. This was set in Japanese mythology instead of Greek, and had each level as its individual challenge, slightly in the style of a puzzle game.

"If I have to be completely honest, I didn't enjoy much the first Populous. The concept was great, but the inevitable armageddon bell ended every game too soon. Populous 2, on the other hand, allowed me to take everything easier, plan ahead (sometimes) and it felt more like a simulation. I don't know if Populous 2 was the perfect god-game, but certainly was a great game to me." - Abandonware DOS
