Populous, PC

And here is the PC MS-DOS version of Bullfrog‘s classic Populous (1989), for comparison’s sake.

Apart from the title screen, it’s pretty much identical to the Amiga version.

Personally, I think that the DOS version plays slightly better, because the mouse click response is not as sluggish as on the Amiga.

I also think that the version for sale over at GOG.com is this version, running under DOSBox. Which makes Populous perfectly playable on modern systems.
