Fortunate then that I have Tristan – a seasoned pioneer, with plenty of childhood experience in the original game – looking over my shoulder, and encouraging me to make the most of his swanky new TV.
But my inexperience isn't a big problem starting out. The remake of Colonization has been built on Civilization IV, so the basic controls will be familiar to anyone with prior Civ experience. And even those coming to this out of the dark ages should be able to get their bearings in about the time it'd take them to get their chainmail off."
