Sid Meier’s Civilization VI (called Civilization VI or Civ6 for short) is a turn-based strategy game in the Civilization franchise that was released in 2016. The lead producer of the game is Dennis Shirk, and the lead designer is Ed Beach. The game’s first expansion pack, Rise and Fall, was released on February 8, 2018.

Starting today, October 4, Civilization VI will be available for iPhones on the Apple App Store. It was previously available on iPads but not iPhones. And of course, it has long been a staple of PC and Mac gaming.

The new port faces a daunting task—squeezing an extremely complex game onto a tiny screen—and it asks players to shell out for the trouble. While you can play a short free trial when you first download it, unlocking all the features and the ability to play long-term will ultimately cost $60 up front; that’s the same price as the desktop version. Port developer Aspyr Media is selling the game for 60 per cent off from the launch today up through October 16, though.

Civilizations & Leaders

There are eighteen civilizations included in the base game at launch. In addition, the Aztec civilization was available exclusively to pre-order customers for the first ninety days after launch. After this ninety-day period, the Aztec civilization was made available to all players as free downloadable content.

Each civilization has three unique components: a unit, a piece of infrastructure (be it a building, a district or a tile improvement) and an ability. Furthermore, each leader has a distinct ability of their own, as well as a unique agenda which shapes the leader’s playstyle and diplomatic personality when controlled by the AI. Abilities can be multi-faceted, and some leader abilities include a further unique unit, giving the civilization a total of two.

The interface

There have been a few attempts at Civilization-like games on the iPhone before. There was Civilization Revolution (and a sequel), which was modeled closely after the last-generation console adaptation of the series. It was a good game, and it did a good job of scaling the experience down for those platforms—but that was also the problem. There’s no reason console or mobile players shouldn’t get the full experience that desktop players do. And then there’s the cult indie hit Polytopia, which is also stripped down but elegant as can be.

But this is the first time the full experience has made it to your pocket. The iPad version released previously was quite good, and this is just a tweaked version of that release. Every part of the gameplay, except online multiplayer, made the transition. The only sacrifices are in presentation to accommodate the small screen.

A surprisingly good port

Yes, that small screen means concessions, but the fact that every major gameplay feature and element except online multiplayer is here is something fans of the series have been wanting on mobile for a long time, and it’s great to see.

If you have a device that supports it and you’re a Civilization fan, it’s worth grabbing for your next long flight or for your daily rail commute. Here are the supported devices, according to Aspyr’s press release about the launch:

Civilization VI requires iOS 11 on an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, or any iPad Pro. Please note, Civilization VI on iPad includes the base game only and does not include expansion content.

Even though it’s not quite the series’ best, Civilization VI is a great game, and it’s easily one of the deepest strategy games on iOS right now. It’s just too bad about the price; I can’t think of any other mobile game that costs $60 up front. Sure, you could spend that much easily on microtransactions in free-to-play titles like Clash of Clans or Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, but even the priciest premium games I’ve seen (like some full-fledged JRPGs by Square-Enix) cap out at roughly $15 or $20.

But if the gameplay is the same, maybe $60 is reasonable to ask for. And you don’t have to put up with any microtransactions, apart from DLC content. There are no compromises in gameplay here, so there’s no compromise on price. That price is tough to swallow when most of the games you buy on mobile are $1.99, but those games aren’t Civilization, are they?
