In Populous DS, you are a deity who is tasked with nurturing a civilization; your goal is to vanquish a nearby hostile civilization, which is controlled by a rival god. The touch-screen shows a barebones view of the world, while the corresponding fleshed-out version of the world is displayed on the top screen, which is where cut scenes and the final apocalyptic battle also play out. Your territory is outlined in blue, while enemy holdings are outlined in red."
