Sid Meier Civilization 1 is released in 1991 for 16 bit personal computers. It is a turn based strategy game with 2d graphic, that in our days look like big ugly squares. Yet this game is very playable and more interesting than many games released between 2010 and 2015. It is light and the only thing that need is a DOS emulator (like DOS Box) to rum on any computer. Civilization has been called one of the most important strategy games of all time. Back in 90s, when the widest spread games were arcades like packman and space invaders, my brother came at home, throw a diskette and said: "Play this, it's cool". I eagerly launched the game, and was very disappointed to see no moving objects to catch, climb or fire upon. I was cycling around a small island with one militia unit and didn't know know what to do. Then I begun to reed and discover technologies and a new amazing world was revealed to me! In the next years, Civilization evolved, but I never stopped playing Civ 1 occasionally, because I can play it anywhere, even at work.
In short, it is about taking the role of the ruler of a civilization and attempts to
build an empire in competition with other rival civilizations. In long, the story begins in a lovely calm day about 6000 years ago.
