Setting up a wireless match (either locally or via Wi-Fi) is as simple as a few taps of the stylus, and you have a plethora of options at your disposal once your buddies have connected. Up to three other players can join on a wide variety of map types. Populous gives players a choice of gods to play, each tied to a different element (i.e., earth, fire, water, etc.) and with different powers and abilities. While different players can play the same deity in the same match, it's more fun to pit element against element and see what deity's special abilities work best against whom.
