Civilization turn based strategy game (GTK+ client)
  20 reviews

Freeciv is a free clone of the turn based strategy game Civilization. In this game, each player becomes leader of a civilisation, fighting to obtain the ultimate goal: the extinction of all other civilisations.

This is the GTK 2 version of Freeciv. It is recommended to install the »freeciv-client-gtk3« package and to use the GTK 3 client unless you really want to try this one.

NB: you MUST also install freeciv-server in order to play local/offline games. Decent, very much like Civ2, has a quite dated UI now, while also lacking the human element of the original series (e.g. advisors, audio quotes). Highly customisable of course.

Hinter der einfach gehaltenen Spiel-Grafik steckt echt viel Startegie dahinter :) Einfach Hammer !

Does not warn you that you must also install the server software (which is needed even for local games.) Otherwise works fine.

Клон цивилизации графа конечно никакая но логика игры покрывает этот минус.

WARNING! This package is seriously broken. On LM17 it (A) installed two clients; (B) wouldn't run either of them (can'topen server ... and that when you want to play single player); and (C) upon uninstall left an unremovable residue in the Games menu, meaning my Menu files are now corrupted. I may have to track them down and edit in text mode to fix this. I am very much NOT impressed.

Civilization is the first turn-based strategy game i played on MS Windows back in year '93. It was a lot fun and since then i was a huge fan for them. Btw, on the free civ i see more complexity add on the gameplay which is harder for a beginner and take longer time to finish the game. Kudos to the developer for the great gaming experiences. Keep update and hope to see the improvement from time to time.

VERY addictive! Lacks music and animation, but still heaps of fun. I've wasted hours on this.

A fantastic game, can be complicated for beginners though.
