Godus not only raised more than £500,000 in crowd­fund­ing to get go­ing, but it’s the work of Peter Molyneux (Pop­u­lous, Fa­ble). You play God, tasked with help­ing cre­ate and watch­ing over your very own civil­i­sa­tion by ma­nip­u­lat­ing land to save the peo­ple who will be­come your fol­low­ers. They’re search­ing for the promised land , though they’re a picky bunch. Some ar­eas are too small, oth­ers too ugly. So you have to smooth the path for them un­til they find the per­fect spot, where they will set up home and breed. As you progress you earn re­ward cards to ex­pand abil­i­ties, but you’ll need to un­lock them with stick­ers found through­out the game. That’s a bit frus­trat­ing, but what re­ally lets Godus down is the con­trols: tap­ping and drag­ging the land doesn’t always work as well as it should, and it can get a bit te­dious af­ter a while. But stick with it; once your civil­i­sa­tion is more es­tab­lished and strik­ing out on its own, you can have fun with me­te­ors and the like.
