Build an Empire to Stand the Test of Time

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 world.

Discover New Technologies. You dictate how your civilization grows by controlling the technologies it discovers - mastery of one technology provides the opportunity to learn new ones. Over 70 of mankind's greatest technical achievements are available, including The Wheel, The Alphabet, Mapmaking, Navigation, and even Nuclear Weapons.

Build Wonders of the World. Earn the respect of your people - and the envy of the world - as you construct the Pyramids, the Great Wall and other wonders of antiquity, the Middle Ages or the modern era. Each Wonder you build brings special benefits to your society.

Determine the Fate of Your People. 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 select from five difficulty settings while playing on Earth or on a new planet generated for each game.

Enjoy the Easy to Use Interface. The point-and-click, icon-based interface makes it easy to gather information, make decisions. Virtually any game-related question or concern is addressed in the on-line "civilopedia."

Will archaeologists yet unborn puzzle over the decline and fall of the culture you built? Or will your culture be the one that finally achieves earthly immortality?

You'll find the answer only in Civilization.

DOS 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.
