Peter Molyneux’s Godus has been soft launched on the New Zealand App Store

Peter Molyneux’s 22Cans has just soft launched Godus, the Populous creator's latest god sim, on the New Zealand App Store.

Asking you to omnipotently rule over the settlers of an island, Godus initially puts you in charge of only two people. By caring for them and editing the landscape to suit their needs, they will begin to populate the island and allow you to grow in power as their civilization develops.

This god simulator first launched on PC last September, but is only now making its way to iPad and iPhone. Adding touchscreen controls to the geometry shifting gameplay should be an ideal fit, allowing you expand or erode the landscape with a simple swipe of the screen. 

If you are feeling less benevolent, however, you can use these same controls to call down all manner of godly blights to crush the ant-like peons beneath your divine boot.

The App Store version of the game is free-to-play, allowing you to buy Gems through in-app purchases to help you build your civilisation.

Those of you in New Zealand can start enjoying Godus today. We will keep our all seeing eye out for news of its worldwide release.

noooooooo...... free to play!!! why why do they have to do this!!! This game has so much potential, now I know it will come at an annoying and repetitive price!!
I at least hope they offer a decent earning of gems through normal play.
