Tried it but found it not very intuitive... I think I will check the manual and "quickstart" http://homepage.ntlworld.com/mark.ha...tml#quickstart
Thank you!

Wow, looks very neat, but I have no idea what I'm doing. Seems like a very original concept. Nice find.

Absolutely loved Mega Lo Mania (or Tyrants on the Genesis). In case people don't know what this is a clone of...

One of the great 'god' games.

Ok, maybe not THAT original concept in the end, but unlike any other maemo game for sure and works sweetly (thought more about Populous, frankly, still a treat)

Speaking of Populous (1 and 2), there are video made by me about open source FreePop (http://freepop.sourceforge.net/) development version:

It is not game yet, and there are nobody working on it, but of course we can speculate how that would work with touchscreen, lowering+raising land is so intuitive with left+right mouse buttons.

Openpopulous is not ready either and is clone of populous3:
