Added DiffLines:

* ElementalRockPaperScissors: Populous DS gives the player a selection of five different gods, each with their own element, set of unique miracles, and stats for worshipers, and added power vs. another element.
** [[DishingOutDirt Earth]]: JackOfAllStats. Advantageous vs. Air; the rocks miracles tend to produce get in the way of scattering worshipers (as well as buildings) and swamps are a walker's worst nightmare.
** [[BlowYouAway Air]]: High stamina. Advantageous vs. Water; wind disrupts rain-fall, one of water's basic miracles. Miracles also tend to hit large areas and scatter worshipers, allowing you "throw" your worshipers where you want them to go, or throw enemy worshipers right to their deaths.
** [[MakingASplash Water]]: Balanced. Advantageous vs. Fire; rain puts out flames of any sort. Miracles also tend to [[HeelFaceBrainwashing convert]] enemy worshipers into your own.
** [[PlayingWithFire Fire]]: Supreme strength. Advantageous vs. Harvest; Harvest's flowers and mushrooms pretty much super-charge Fire's most basic miracle: the Pillar of Fire. And Fire's extreme attack-power means it'll squash Harvest worshipers despite their growth.
** [[GreenThumb Harvest]]: High reproduction. Advantageous vs. Earth; Harvest's flowers can quickly clear out rocks from Earth's miracles and its incredible growth-speed means that its low fighting-strength is rarely an issue.

Added DiffLines:

* CheatCode: There's normally 500 levels, with the level names working as a password system. Entering "killuspal" (kill us, pal) as the password warps you to level 999, which is basically suicidal.

Populous is a [[SimulationGame God Sim]], scratch that; Populous is ''the'' [[UrExample God Sim]]. Designed in 1989 by Creator/BullfrogProductions (developers who also brought us ''VideoGame/ThemePark'', ''VideoGame/ThemeHospital'' and ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper'') under the leadership of a young Creator/PeterMolyneux (who later brought us ''VideoGame/BlackAndWhite'' and ''Franchise/Fable''). It saw the player taking the role of a deity that helped a primitive tribe of people into a powerful enemy to defeat the rival gods.
