We haven’t received word on this week’s Xbox Windows Phone release just yet, but the Deal of the Week seems to have popped up for some people already. Prepare for some good news: Civilization Revolution from 2K Games is the new sale title, marked down from $2.99 to $1.99.
In the Civilization games, players start at the dawn of humanity and lead their civilization through the ages, including modern times and even the future. You’ll need to gather resources, build new cities, research technologies, and either war against or form alliances with neighboring countries. You can choose from 16 different nations to play with as you strive to achieve one of four possible victory conditions: Technology, Economic, Cultural, and Domination (war).
The Windows Phone version of Civilization Revolution isn’t much of a looker; it’s a port of the 2009 iOS version, after all. But despite what the media would have you believe, looks are not everything. Civ Rev still packs countless hours of strategic goodness. The game world is always randomly generated, so your starting experience will often be different from one game to the next. Then the vast amount of technologies to research and multiple ways to win the game provide even more possibilities. Will you take out your opponents by force, outsmart them, or both?
There aren’t a ton of strategy games in the WP7 Xbox lineup: just this, Fusion: Sentient, and Extraction: Project Outbreak. Of those games, Civ Rev is easily the best, making it one of my favorite games on the platform. Check out our full review for more details.
Civilization Revolution will be on sale for $1.99 for one week only starting on Wednesday. While the Deal of the Week shows up early for some people, it might not appear for others until Thursday, so keep checking. You can get the game here at the Windows Phone store.
