Description of Populous II: Trials of the Olympian Gods

Bullfrog made the direct sequel to the first Populous and created one of the most notable god game in history. The goal is to lead your people in their battle against another civilisation worshipping an enemy god.

This episode is specifically built around the greek mythology and the player will have to fight all greek deities to finally fight against Zeus himself.

The game has very vast possibilities, with 30 godly powers to use and more than 1000 maps to play on.

Even a Nintendo DS remake was made in 2008!

Love this game, ran great on Windows XP. Going to try it on Windows 7 if I can get D-Fend Reloaded to run on it. Looking forward to wasting a lot of time playing this game again!!

"Does the word hippocrite mean anything to you?"

Huhu thx @greggor ;)

Greggor 2012-10-20 0 point DOS version

@angrywithyou - The game is called "Trials of the Olympian Gods". Admin was saying that this is the full version of the game "Trials of the Olympian Gods". Nobody is being deceptive or hypocritical here. Take a chill pill.

whoa, what the hell?

angrywithyou 2012-06-27 -1 point DOS version

uh, admin dude? There is no such thing as 'full version' of the trial/demo of a game, and you KNOW it! Being deceptive on purpose is extremely irritating and incredibly annoying, especially to those who aren't aware of being duped. Does the word hippocrite mean anything to you? Do you like to be deceived/taken advantage of?

Best way is to download Virtual PC from Microsoft (it is free) and just create a dos Virtual machine.

Coach 2010-10-23 0 point DOS version

It creates "only 5 minutes and then I stop" dependency
(Use DosBox to play)

leganFuh 2010-06-05 0 point DOS version

is there any way to play POP2 on Win7(64bit)? thanx!

dosboxer 2010-03-06 0 point DOS version

"expanded memory not found" is typical if you try to run the PC game with Windows XP. Instead get DOSBox (emulates a DOS runnig computer). it is free, it recommended for populous2, it runs with Windows, linux and mac, it worked for me (windows XP and Linux Ubuntu 8.04).

admin 2010-02-26 1 point DOS version

Go to page "How to play" in the left side to read how to launch games.

somesoul 2010-02-25 0 point DOS version
