Volcano is a very fun and unique real-time god game. You play a god either benevolent (Gaia) or malicious (Thanatos), either saving villagers from deadly lava that is flowing from an erupting volcano, or killing them all.

The game is very easy to learn: the only thing you do is raise and lower the ground a la Populous to divert lava flows at or around villages (represented on the map as small huts).

With a unique premise, good graphics that require no 3D accelerator, easy-to-learn controls, and above all – fun gameplay, Volcano is a very enjoyable freeware underdog that will keep both action and strategy fans happy for a long time. Having a choice between being a good or evil god is a great feature that should be present in more games. The game includes twenty basic levels, plus a great random map mode to ensure that no two games will ever be alike. Two thumbs up, way up!
