Many 4X titles can be played on desktop computers, but they"re less common on mobile. We"ve previously taken a look at the choice of 4X strategy games for iOS, but what has app android got to lớn offer?


1. Civilization Revolution 2

We"ll start with the most popular name in the world of 4X, Civilization. This mobile version is the first time any title from the Civilization franchise has appeared on Android, although the original Civilization Revolution was available on iOS and even Windows Phone in 2012.

Released in 2014, Civilization Revolution 2 brings a slightly simplified version of Civilization V to lớn your Android điện thoại cảm ứng or tablet, with the turn-based 4X strategy trò chơi challenging you khổng lồ take command of a famous civilization in human history and lead it khổng lồ greatness.

The trò chơi is won via one of these four strategies: Domination (capture all enemy capitals), build the world ngân hàng and collect 20,000 gold pieces (Economic), convert trăng tròn cities (Cultural) & Science (build a spacecraft and launch it to lớn Alpha Centauri). How you achieve victory is up khổng lồ you, but there is no set path.

Compared lớn Civilization V, this sản phẩm điện thoại version is almost a different game. It probably feels closer in depth to lớn Civilization II, but this is no bad thing. What might be a problem is the price: $9.99 could be considered a bit steep for a thiết bị di động game, but on the other hand, there are no in-app purchases.


2. Rebuild

Most 4X games are phối in the past, or in space. They almost always feature a randomly attacking enemy horde, such as the Barbarians in Civilization.

Rebuild is different.

Rather than placing you at the head of a tribe in the distant past or a group of colonists in the present, Rebuild drops you straight into a whole lot of trouble -- think Dawn of the Dead (or Shaun..., if you prefer!) & cross that with the typical elements of a 4X game và you"re pretty much there.

There"s no need khổng lồ build your empire in the usual way, as your main aims are to gather the survivors of a zombie apocalypse, defend your fort, và expand your defensive unit by recapturing one building at a time. Killing zombies is a priority, as is rediscovering technology, but you"ll have to lớn be on your guard as rival bands of survivors can prove challenging, as well as disease & crime.

Available for just $2.99, Rebuild is an entertaining spin on the 4X genre. It doesn"t try khổng lồ copy Civilization, and in a genre full of Civ clones, that is a very good thing indeed.


3. Star Traders 4X

This RTS trò chơi is a strategy take on the Star Traders RPG, which is phối in the same universe; & challenges you to lớn protect your people, manipulate rivals, unlock technology and build a galactic civilization. If you can manage the economy, realm, & scientific development, you have a chance of success, but only using espionage & diplomacy to lớn gain an upper hand.

A useful tutorial helps you lớn get started, although you can easily skip it.

5. Freeciv

This one has been around for a while, and is an mở cửa source clone of Civilization II, the 1995 sequel to lớn the 1991 original. The similarities are stunning, và while Freeciv is perhaps more widely played on the desktop, it has its band of supporters on Android.


It"s hardly a surprise. Back in 2014, this was the only Civ-like trò chơi for Android, unless you were prepared to lớn run the original in an emulator.

There is one aspect khổng lồ the game which might put you off, however. Despite the trò chơi being available for over five years, the developers have struggled -- or completely ignored the need -- lớn develop the user interface. The result is a slightly clunky experience that tries too hard lớn replicate the original desktop version, overlooking the needs of a sản phẩm điện thoại user.

But if you"re prepared to overlook this, you"ll get the full Civilization II-style experience, right there on your game android phone or tablet!


6. Populus Romanus

Think yourself as a Roman emperor? Populus Romanus puts you straight into that role, with a choice of 14 scenarios recreating various real-life scenarios, such as the First Punic War. Styled lượt thích a tabletop board trò chơi with hex-and-counter gameplay, this is an advanced strategy war game -- with a bit of Civilization mixed in.


You"re thrown into the kích hoạt immediately with the built-in scenarios, so you"ll need lớn be quick-witted khổng lồ work out what is going on, how lớn move, và how lớn engage in combat. Once you"ve got this worked out, however, & your cities are creating more units, the game becomes more strategic.

Populus Romanus is pretty addictive once you get over the slightly odd graphics.


7. MyCiv Alpha

Still in the development stage, MyCiv Alpha has a long way to lớn go but marries polished graphics with Civilization-style chơi game -- as you"ll gather from the title!

The trò chơi has quirks -- it"s not entirely stable, the thực đơn screen is portrait while the trò chơi itself plays in landscape mode (and neither will switch when your device is oriented) -- but it also makes use of the touchscreen to địa chỉ some useful gesture support, such as pinching khổng lồ zoom in and out of đô thị view.


But there"s a problem with pace, và a lack of movable pieces following the first turn means you"re sat hitting Enter until your first piece is ready, a problem fixed by various other 4X games long ago.

If you"re somehow still looking for your Civilization fix on game android despite FreecivCivilization Revolution 2, then MyCiv Alpha is certainly worth keeping an eye on.


8. Birth of the Empires

Think Microprose"s Master of Orion 2 or Star Trek: Birth of the Federation, và you"ve got a good idea where Birth of the Empires is coming from. This turn-based 4X title puts you in charge of one of six different races, including humans, aiming to lớn win by gaining diplomatic or military supremacy over the galaxy.


It will take some time for you to lớn get going with this traditional, static-screened 4X classic, but once you"ve got started -- as with all of these titles -- you"ll find yourself hooked, & falling back on the old "just one more turn" catchphrase at three in the morning.
