        1 was fundamentally more puzzle oriented with what felt like more content and with a smarter Creature with more strings to pull in its simulated brain and far more obscuring of those strings, plus people who started with it are simply inclined to have rose tinted glasses for it

        2 was brisker, with an odd duck mix of city builder and poormans' Total War of which neither was as developed as they ought to have been, felt fundamentally like it had less content or was more incomplete, and let you train the Creature into doing exactly what you want far more easily with basically no reason to use the Free Will lowering leashes most of the time

        in an ideal world we would've gotten the best of both worlds with a more complete version of both pictures simultaneously in the next go around with or without Lionhead, but instead Molyneux listened to the sirens' song of tabletification and made Godus as a poormans' Populous

          I honestly did enjoy 2 more for the city build/total war mix. Shame this series never continued, maybe in B&W3 we could've gotten a more advanced AI, because the only real issue with 2 is that the enemy cities only seem to do predetermined building and magically spawns troops to send an attack every few minutes, but it never was anything dynamic or radiant going on under the hood.

      Yeah, you can just download them off the usual abandonware sites.
      Unfortunately it's annoying as shit to get them to run. I tried for a day or two with the first game, it would just crash on startup, no chances here. And while 2 works just fine, I hate playing it because the UI cannot be scaled (or at least I haven't found a mod if one exists) and the 8pt font that the entire interface is in is barely readable on my current screen.

      Its practically the only way to play it now because if your like me you still have the disc version. Which came with a DRM called Securom which is no longer supported and doesnt work on modern OS's so its literally unplayable without fan patches or just downloading the game entirely off abandonware sites.

        A devil game would have to play fundamentally different from a god game. I would say it'd be something "Spore-like". You can't directly intervene, so you have to tempt and corrupt people. Start out on a small level like a village, create a cult, maybe get more tangible interaction when people sacrifice shit to you, then slowly increase scale until you're at worldwide levels.
        Though I don't know where you'd go from there unless you do a complete genre shift and start a fight against the forces of good or some shit.

            Pretty good game, with every villain playing differently. I don't agree with the decision to have them all locked until after your first playthrough though, just designate the snek as the newbie playthrough but still let players start with what they want
