Overview Civilization II: Test of Time is a turn based strategy game, released in 1999,  in which you must advance your civilization to conquer the world.

In the custom game you may choose the size of map, land mass, land form (Archipelago, Varied, Continents), climate (Arid, normal, wet), temperature (cool, temperate, warm) and the age of the world (3billion, 4billion, 5billion). There are then six difficulty settings; Chieftain (easiest), Warlord, Prince, King, Emperor, Deity (toughest) to choose. You can pick the number of opponents, from 3 to 7 and the level of barbarian activity (Villages, Roaming Bands, Restless Tribes, Raging Hoards).
