    The Tradition of Civilization Continues.

    The New World lies before you with all its peril, promise and infinite possibility. Your colonists anxiously follow you to shore. The treasures of an entire continent await you.

    Finally, the much-anticipated follow-up to Civilization is here! Sid Meier's Colonization takes you into the Colonial Era to discover, explore and colonize vast territories that promise both danger and reward.

    Play one of four colonial powers as you set sail to discover the New World. Explore new lands and strategically plant your first colony. Direct its growth, manage its resources and establish lucrative trade routes. Balance economics, political and military strategy to create your own powerful nation.

    But beware of your enemies! Angry natives and rival powers can encroach upon your territory. You'll have to overcome your foes with superior military strategy and wily diplomacy. Only then can you launch your revolution and declare your independence.

    Colonization, The newest strategy game from Sid Meier continues the great tradition of Civilization.

    —User Reviews—
    “The game is a rich and varied Gestalt of top colony activity. Strategies must be divined with care, and constantly modified to ride the chaotic rapids of the thousands of interactive elements in this opus of creative genius. Perhaps. Or it could just be a damn fine game.”

    “Colonization offers hours and hours of entertainment. I played it for over a week to write this review and it commanded my total concentration all the time to play it once through. Because the game can be very different every time you play it, this means that Colonization is the sort of game you could play for ever.”


    • Manage your growth, development and trade to create a powerful nation.
    • Pit your strategic skills against Colonization's advanced artificial intelligence.
    • Play either the French, English, Dutch or Spanish colonial powers each with distinct characteristics and political situations.
    • Customize your games and choose your own level of difficulty so you never play the same game twice.
    • Discover and explore the Americas or create your own scenario with a random map generator.
    • Same design principles and interface as award-winning Civilization, making game play easy and fun.

    Woah! I've played this to death on my PC about 15 years ago (give or take a few years). I've actually checked the app store every once in a while for Colonization to show up and now it's there!! Can't wait to give it a go :D

    It has been available on GOG for quite some time.

    Well, contrary to Civilization, which came to IOS with a new game, completely remade for touchscreen, colonization is exactly the same as on PC. Including a mouse arrow and reference to a help menu via F1 (which isn't available at the keyboard strangely). It is not suited for touchscreen at all, although it is playable.

    It does seem like a quick way to earn some money though. It does bring back memories.
