Populous II: Trials of the Olympian Gods

Populous II: Trials of the Olympian Gods - Hints

I bought Populous II yesterday, and found that the manual held many more 
tidbits of knowledge then I had instinctively known from being familiar
with Populous I. So I decided to share these tidbits with you.

Let me start by urging each of you to buy the game. Software developers of
the quality of BullFrog Software are rare for the Amiga, or for any computer
for that matter, and DESERVE our support. If no one buys their games they
will stop making them. Simple as that.

For this text I will assume that you are familiar with Populous and with the 
game play. I will only be touching on those point which may not be readily
apparent.



WELCOME TO POPULOUS II

To obtain your birth-right among the gods of Mount Olympus, you must defeat
the 32 divine opponents who rule the 1000 world of Populous II. Your final
opponent will be Zeus himself. Defeat Zeus, your Father, to take your seat
among the gods.

Your first task is to create the kind of deity that you want to be. You 
choose the facial appearances which indicate weather you're benevolent and 
wise, fierce and war-like, brutish and cruel, or some bizarre combination of
these characteristics. This determines your gods personality.

Your god's personality affects how opponents react to you. For example, if 
your deity looks like a scholar, the combat is more subtle and clever.

Assign The Lightning Bolt experience points in the areas you wish to 
specialize in. 

WRITE DOWN the code shown at the bottom of the screen. This code will enable
you to recall your character the next time you play. Be sure to get this code
each time you finishing adding experience points to your character if you 
don't want to lose them.

There are two ways to play Populous II: Conquest Games and Custom Games. 
In Conquest mode you must conquer a series of worlds. Each world is harder 
then the last. If you played a Conquest Game well, you're awarded experience.
You can use the experience to customize your gods power. You can specialize 
or spread your experience over all the forces. 

In Custom mode, you play a random land with all the effects you have earned
in your Conquest games. Conquest Games affect Custom Games. You are limited 
by your progress in the Conquest series. You can't do effects you haven't 
already used in the Conquest Game. This is the only limitation to the kind 
of custom game you can make. Custom Games do not progress you along the 
Conquest path.



CHOOSE A CONQUEST GAME.

You pretty much should know that the Conquest Game Options Screen is all
about. It shows you the world name, the world number, all the spells and
options in effect for the coming world. You can enter a new world name, then
the options and effects for THAT world will be shown. 
The only thing you need to know about here is that when you see a new
effect, you can click an that icon for that effect to read a short descript-
ion of what that power does.


THE GAME

You are familiar with the game screen. It has the World Map, and the Close Up
map. You can scroll around the close up map by using the cursor keys, or the
keys on your number key pad.

As your followers build houses, you will want to urge them to spread out
by somehow making them leave their homes. This is done by 'SPROGGING'.
On open land when you press the right mouse button, the Earth will be 
depressed by one level; but if you are centered on a Dwelling and press the 
right mouse button, a walker will be ousted to find a place of his own. This
is sprogging. Sprog early, Sprog often.


Heroes

Each Effect has a Hero for that class. When you click to create a hero of a 
given class, your leader will become that hero. You will need to make a new 
leader by telling your people to gather at your Papal Magnet, before you can
make any other heroes. You can have more the one hero of a given class. 
Heroes tend to be more intelligent then the common walker. Heroes of one 
class tend to be immune to to the effects of powers within his class.



IMPORTANT POINTS ABOUT SOME POWERS (Effects) 
--------------------------------------------

PEOPLE EFFECTS

There are five people effects. From left to right, the icons on the diagonal
are: 
 1) Raise / lower land
 2) Move Papal icon
 3) Create knight
 4) Plague
 5) Armageddon 

Place Papal Magnet - You MUST have a leader before you can place the papal 
 magnet. Get a leader by clicking on the 'Go To Papal 
 Magnet' icon.

The HERO PERSEUS - Perseus is the most intelligent of the heroes.

Lay Plague - Lay plague on an enemy walker or settlement. When a 
 walker has the plague, they'll spread the illness to 
 all dwelling and people they touch. Plagues can only be
 stopped by destroying infected dwellings and people. 
 Plague victims don't give you any mana, and if 
 Armageddon is declared, they instantly disintegrate 
 leaving you with only your healthy population to fight 
 for your cause.



NATURE OR (VEGETATION) EFFECTS

There are five nature effects. From left to right, the icons on the diagonal
are:
 1) Grow trees
 2) Make land verdant (flowers etc.)
 3) Create swamp
 4) Create creeping fungus
 5) Make nature hero

Trees - Earn you popularity points with your people. Don't ask me what a 
 popularity point is though. I don't know.

Flowers - Renew land damaged by volcanos, fires, ect. Increases your 
 popularity points. This greenery spreads if planted in the right 
 patterns, so cluster plantings together and give them plenty of 
 room to spread.

Fungus - Plant these around enemy settlements and watch it spread. For the 
 greatest affect, plant them in straight rows of three or five.


EARTH EFFECTS

There are five earth effects. From left to right, the icons on the diagonal
are:
 1) Build Road
 2) Build city wall
 3) Earthquake
 4) Lay barren rock
 5) Make earth here

Roads - Build roads for your people to walk on and make their travel 
 faster. Enemy walkers like roads too, so you could place a 
 strategically positioned swamp at the end of a road for any 
 enemy walkers foolish enough to come your way.

Walls - Keep weak enemies out, but strong ones can climb over. A very
 strong walker can break sections so keep an eye out for this.
 The secret to building walls is that each new segment you 
 place MUST be connected to a wall already standing. (except 
 for the first segment of course.)
 Deft fingers on the cursor keys can allow you to put up a wall
 in little time at all. Practice.

Earth Quakes - When you select an earth quake, you can aim the direction it 
 will go by watching the small pointer that orbits your cursor.

Batholiths - Destroy your opponents flat land by raising rocks and earth. 
 The longer you hold down the button, the greater the effect 
 becomes.

The HERO HERACLES - Turning your leader into Heracles doubles his strength 
 and sends him against your enemies.


AIR OR WIND EFFECTS

There are five air effects. The icons from left to right on the diagonal are:

 1) Lightning bolt
 2) Whirlwind
 3) Lightning storm
 4) Create air hero
 5) Hurricane

Whirlwind - When a whirlwind goes off land, it creates a whirlpool. If an 
 armed walker gets sucked up by the wind his weapons are flung 
 out of his hands and the battering he takes leaves him with the 
 IQ of a garden slug.


FIRE EFFECTS

There are four fire effects. The icons from left to right on the diagonal
are:
 1) Create column of fire
 2) Rain of fire
 3) Make fire hero
 4) Raise a volcano

Fire Columns - tend to move uphill, so they are most effective on wide open 
 ground.

Volcano - The size of your volcano depends on the experience points you
 placed in the 'Fire' column. The ONLY way to repair volcano 
 damage is with the flower spell.

WATER EFFECTS

There are five water effects. The icons from left to right on the diagonal
are:

 1) Lay basalt rock
 2) Start whirlpool
 3) Conversion pool
 4) Aphrodite
 5) Tital Wave

Tidal Wave - The further out you begin the tidal wave the more momentum it
 can build before it hits land.
 The best way to stop a tidal wave is with a high wall of land.

The HERO HELEN OF TROY - Helen has legendary beauty and grace witch has lead
 many a man to his doom. She is very wise, and will attempt to
 escape notice by changing direction. She can sense when she is
 being targeted and try to get away and will try to avoid traps.
 If your enemy makes a Helen, try destroying her with fire or 
 lightning... or a lucky baptismal font may turn her on her
 owner...


WINNING

There are several different ways to win Populous II. You can win worlds, win 
experience points (even if you lose a world), or you can reach the ultimate 
goal of defeating Zeus.


EXPERIENCE POINTS

As you earn experience points, apply them to one of the six categories of 
effects at the Deity Creation screen. As you invest experience points in a 
category (population, fire, water, ect.) the power of any effect you use 
from that category increases. For example, say you earn five lightning bolts
of experience after a battle and apply all five of them to the fire category.
The next time you use any effect from the fire category, it's stronger. Fire
columns last longer as do Rains of fire, The Hero Achilles is stronger and 
faster, and your Volcanoes are much more damaging and permanent.


THE COLOSSEUM in the upper right hand corner

As you know, you can click on the question mark to check up an a specific 
person or settlement. That person or settlement will appear in the center of
the colosseum. You may have wondered what the little flags going up and down
on the poles behind the colosseum mean. They indicate the current strength 
or population) of that person or settlement. From RIGHT to LEFT the flagpoles
represent Tens, Hundreds, Thousands, Ten Thousands, ect. up to Hundred 
Millions.



A Note About Intelligence

All walkers have a level of intelligence according to the level of technology
the emerge from. Heroes tend to have very high intelligence. Intelligence 
will allow walkers (or Heroes) to avoid traps and to hunt out new land.
