I was also going to ask if the second version was any good? I know it had more battle theme running through it.

I never got past the first few lands in the second one, mainly because it's not actually my game so I didn't get to spend all that much time on it. They also took out the multiplayer element, which I figure was a bad bad move. There's nothing quite like trashing the villages of your friends or, even more entertaining, watching their villages convert to you as their reign of terror makes your utopian society look tempting indeed. It's always embarrassing when they lose to a pacifist.
Still, definite fun times with the original, the second isn't as revolutionary as the first (obviously), so although it's a good bit of fun to play I tend to prefer the multiplayer aspect of the original. Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got to go rummage through some boxes of old games.

Anyway, I'm sorry if I have now just ruined your work flow now for bringing up the game

So anywho, aside from the fact that my ape's pretty small and useless at the moment, I haven't played online for a long time. I've restrained myself to cease playing it all today as well, so much the better, but we'll see how well my will holds out. The main problem I have with the game is that it takes forever to get your creature to any appreciable size. I remember when I used to play it online (and this is after a good few solid weeks of playing) that everyone else's creature was the maximum size, simply because the creature never shrinks. Once the veterans have got their creature huge, they can pretty much trash anything they like with it.
One variation I had great fun with is agreeing to play with entirely new creatures. Namely we did the very first part of the tutorial until the creature selection and then went straight to an online game. You wouldn't believe how much I yelled at my computer screen when my... I think it was a tiger, started trashing my village of his own accord. Of course, glancing over at my opponent he was having about as much fun as me trying to control his little blighter. The creature's a great way to convert villages outside of your influence, but damned if he can be a stubborn bugger at the start.
But anywho, once I'm back from my holiday (headed away for two weeks) and got settled back in to uni I'll give you a game sometime. I notice you're from London, which saves the timezone trouble a little.
This all assumes I don't manage to get annoyed with the irritating little ape in the meantime. It's so hard to be good, I'd have to agree. Curse the temptation of the fireball!

I'm tempted to restart the game again (deleting my profile and my creature) and going through so that I'm personally Good, while my creature is a thing from the deepest pits of Hell. It's a pretty nice combo, your creature trashes everything (getting you Belief) and you put it back together again (getting yet more Belief). The problems start when you have to train your little critter up, though, as to teach him the, say, Fireball miracle and what you want him to use it on you've got to torch a few villages yourself.
Still, you can always win back your Good status by applying liberal Heals afterwards, if you care so much about that. I just get all annoyed when I'm trying to play a good deity and end up accidentally killing some random villager to have my Good conscience have a rant at me. "Oh come on, it's not like I did it on purpose!" I might just tell both of my consciences to go stuff it, letting me do what I feel like at the time.

If I kept playing, I'd never sell my house and probably upset my partner!

point B, and there isn't a way to peacefully take cities. If your peaceful and "good" you get one city and people migrate to you instead of joining your empire. You can still go any conquer the empty city, but this is considered evil and you start turning bad.
All in all the game isn't that great and its not being helped by not having multiplayer which is a big thing for me.
