Civ89 is a turn-based empires strategy game par excellent.
Gameplay 7/10 - Two things needed: an AI editor (since there is as of yet no AI) and a random scenario generator. Beyond these, the game is smooth and fast. There is a tech tree goal map which is beneficial and the turn summary screen is impressive in detail.
Graphics 9/10 - On the 92+, the map and units are incredibly tiny, only using 70% of the screen. The version history states that the game scale was bigger originally.
Controls 10/10 - The game does not come with a manual. But when you check out the website and download the manual there, the controls are simple and effective.
Addictiveness - 8/10 I think that it takes too many turns for the game to get going. A single turn is too insignificant. The two players have to trade off calcs constantly to work up an army and city-state. It takes about forty or so turns before war breaks out.
Replay - 8/10 This game potentially could be very replayable if a simple scenario was generated.
Overall - 8/10 The programmer put some serious time into Civ89. This is a fun game that swallows up time and for a turn-based game, and also runs extremely fast. Good job!
