High in the Andes, a biting wind howls through the Incas'
ruined strongholds. Half a world away, the Pharaohs' tombs lie empty. In Italy,
the Roman Colosseum decays. Everywhere, you see the remnants of societies that
thought they would endure forever. All are dust. Yours can be different. You
can be the one person in history that builds an empire that never falls.
That's the challenge of Civilization, the most
enthralling "god game" yet developed. From the creator of Railroad
Tycoon - the SPAs 1990 Strategy Game of the Year - Civilization lets you
match wits with history's greatest leaders.
You start at the dawn of recorded history - 4000 B.C. and
the founding of the first cities - then nurture your society toward the Space
Age. In the beginning, you'll labor to simply survive while building your
settlements, discovering new technologies, and fending off barbarians.
As your empire prospers, you'll face competing civilizations
guided by history's most legendary figures: Alexander the Great, Napoleon,
Genghis Khan, Julius Caesar and more. Now you'll test your capacity for
expansion and domination, your ability to outwit and outmaneuver those cunning
and brilliant leaders.
Just look how Civilization lets you build a brave new

modern era. Each Wonder you build brings special benefits to your society.

Every crucial economic, political, and military decision is yours - and yours
alone. From population growth to industrial policy, scientific development to
military power, the destiny of your civilization is in your hands.
Choose from Flexible Starting
Options. Players of all levels can have fun and be challenged, because you

games do not work on Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7 and we do not offer
technical support for DOS games running on such systems. However, if you really
want to run games like this on your fast new computer you should try using
DOSBox. The DOSBox OpenSource DOS emulator is an excellent piece of work which
we can highly recommend. It isn't possible for us to guarantee that it will
work well for you, however, especially on other graphic-intensive DOS games.
For older DOS games like Civilization, however, it works well with any machine
capable of running newer operating systems.
To start with, you will need to download the Win32
Installer using this link:
The README file included with DOSBox will tell you what you
need to know. If you find it a bit too technical, just click on The Newbie's
Pictoral Guide to DOSBox on the following page:
We find that it is best to create a separate shortcut for
each DOSBox game. That makes starting the game easier and also makes full
screen mode easier to deal with.
