Play as one of 20 historical leaders including Roosevelt (America) and Victoria (England). Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time by leading a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age. Explore a new land, research technology, conquer your enemies, and go head-to-head with history’s most renowned leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known. Civilization VI offers new ways to engage with your world. Cities now physically expand across the map, active research in technology and culture unlocks new potential, and competing leaders will pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits as you race for one of five ways to achieve victory in the game.

Similar units can also be combined to form powerful “Corps” units.

A CIV FOR ALL PLAYERS: Civilization VI provides veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization for the greatest chance of success. New tutorial systems introduce new players to the underlying concepts so they can easily get started.

App Reviews

  • If you know Civ games you know this

    By Bo Bilstrup
    This is the full game of civilization 6 as you would play it on Mac or pc (without the expansions). I bought it for the $30 price (before Jan 2018) and if you are thinking it sounds like a steep price for an iPad game, just remember you’re getting a full game that’s also at least at time of release $60. I’ve always loved the civ games as to me it’s one of those games you can relax really relax with. But I don’t like playing games on my Mac and always thought games like this would be perfect on an iPad with touch screen and voila they did it and it works wonderfully with touch gestures. Love I can chill on the couch with my iPad with this game. Graphics are great, haven’t played on Mac but from what I hear it looks liked if you put it on low setting. It has only crashed on me twice (it auto saves every turn) so no lost game time. I will say I’m playing on iPad Pro and it runs perfect. I really hope this will be the forefront for more big games to start develop on iPad, games like Cities Skylines would be perfect too. Bottom line I’m impressed and not regretting coughing up $30 for this games as I’ve already put in countless of hours and many more to come.
  • Best strategy game on iPad.

    By JoshuaNaber
    The people saying that the price is too much, please consider what you’re getting. The full Civilization 6 experience. They pulled no punches in porting over the experience, the only compromise that there is, concerns the visuals. The models are a lower setting than the computer game and it’s a minor thing. The resolution is downgraded as well but that isn’t the purpose of the game. It is meant to be a top of the line strategy game. It definitely delivers on that point. Whether you are fighting for a religious victory or going for world domination... there are so many aspects to consider. So many options to choose. Also, concerning the price. There have been sales on the game and they say to watch out for sales in the future. I just bought it on sale for about $25 after tax. Over 50% off in total. It’s amazing that they even decided to do so. I’m happy to take advantage of it. There is even local multiplayer. The “hot seat,” a mode that lets you share an iPad for each turn, so it’s basically a board game for your entire family at that point. At least if they are as nerdy as you. Great investment for the entire family. I can’t wait to get the DLC.
  • Self indulgent tripe. FIX load times!!

    By Al1223
    I’m not even going to write about the game. You’ll have to wait for that. And wait. And wait. Still waiting developers to read this review? Now you know how we feel! What in the name of all that’s holy makes you think the load times are acceptable? From the endless introduction screens (see subject line) to the constant reloading from the very beginning after only a few minutes out of the app to write bad reviews of games as a random example . Loading a save game? Be prepared for several minutes. Waiting for the computer to take a turn in a large world? Go make dinner. Be sure not to do something else on your device though. That will put you back out to the self indulgent... oh did I already say that? Don’t like repeating the same thing over and over again? Now you know how we feel developers! It ruins the entire experience. Wait for it. Wait for it. Mic drop. Updated 11-Feb-2017: Load times (still awful) are are best lazy programming. But I don’t believe that here. I feel like hey are a specific choice by the developers. And save your canned response about how it’s really my fault with an older or too full device. This isn’t my first rodeo. By the way the game is great. Oops. Now I have to reload the entire thing again from the beginning since I was out of the app. Maybe I’ll just play something else rather than wait.
  • As good as the desktop

    By mystic-mouse
    As far as I can tell this is pretty much the full Civ 6 base game. Amazingly good port, I’m surprised at how well it works on the iPad. Smaller screen but not much of an issue with pinch and zoom. Basically the full desktop version with some modifications to make windows work better in the form factor. Surprising to see niceties such as key shortcuts (if you use a keyboard with it) and even DLC mods! Civ can be a mouse heavy game if you let it, but here it’s not an issue with the touch screen and the port. I do use the minimap more than I do on the desktop because it’s so easy to touch and pan. Some trimming has occurred, such as leader animations and I’m not sure what else (not much as far as I can tell). But no loss, it’s the same game essentially. Overall worth every penny I think, Civ is a classical pinnacle game and to have this level of play in this format is worth the price of admission, giving hours of game after wonderful game play. I’ve wanted to play at night but didn’t want a laptop or desktop, this fits the bill perfectly. The only thing I can hope for is to see Rise and Fall and other DLC ported to the iPad, completing the port.
  • Good game

    By Theseus839
    Nothing wrong with the game but the price is about 6 times what it should be. $10 would be fine, $20 would even be reasonable if twice what other games cost. To be honest I was actually thinking of buying it for $30, I am a bit of a Civ fan having played all of them from the first so I feel sure I would get my money’s worth (and props for the demo that let’s me feel sure of that). But $60, sixty bucks! This is not commercial software. Yes, it is a normal price for a PC game but on iPads $10 is about the max. Yes many go with buying in game content and I do prefer to pay less up front but that means 20 or 30 could work, not 60. At least throw in some expansions if you have to go with that price. I would really like to play this game but it is just badly overpriced at the moment. Update after dev reply. Guess $60 was too high hehe. I still think $20 would likely be an optimal price level for you. There are none of the overheads involved with selling the PC version (box, cds, manual, posters, profit margin for stores etc) so all the income becomes essentially profit. Regardless I have taken the bait and forked out $30. Since I got my money’s worth out of all the previous Civ games, I am sure I will with this version too!
  • Love the game but not at $60

    By Donknow
    I have only ever paid $60 for a few games. Those were games that I had to have right then. This game is awesome. I want to see more. However, I might pay in the $60 on a PC where I have complete control of the gaming environment. I would never pay that for an iOS game. Though, I say never, I have just not seen that $60 iOS game. This is especially true when I might see the game upgraded to an OS not supported by my iPad or iPhone. So, apparently until I pay for it, I am limited to one general. I’ll play it for a little while but will probably move back over to XCOM. At $10 it is an incredible value. Thank you for the heads up. I purchased it immediately. It is everything I hoped it would be. For what it’s worth, I had no way of knowing what I was purchasing for $60. Though, I can honestly say I have NEVER been burned on a Sid Meir game, iOS is an still unknown quantity. I am pleasantly surprised. And it is gratifying to the same quality in the iOS as in windows.
  • Great playing experience, if you have the best iPad

    By yush01
    This is actually the first time I played civ 6, so this is gonna be a review for both the game and the port. I played civ 5 quite intensively, and initially I hated the graphics. However after ~20 hours of playing I started to like the graphics. I especially like the animation when wonders are completed. Districts and stacked units are absolutely ingenious changes that add so much depth to the gameplay. Playing the game on an iPad is more convenient and relaxing for me. I used to play civ 5 on a fairly up-to-date Mac, which got super noisy and hot after 30mins of playing. Plus sitting in one position for hours gave me some serious back pain. With an 12.9 iPad Pro it is much better, which is not to say the back pain from sitting to long is completely gone. But I think it is fair to say to enjoy a smooth gameplay you probably need the best iPad pro, while on the lower-end iPads it becomes slow and drains the battery very fast.
  • Very decent game for a mobile port!

    By Xanax Dealer
    If you're in this looking for Civ 5 level type of game, you're in the wrong place. If you played the original Civ 6 on PC and didn't like it or feel like it should be a mobile game instead with all those colorful cartoony havok graphics then you're in the right place. This is a full port not the simplified type like Civilization revolution series, which mean it might seem overwhelming for a mobile game, fit an entire screen HUD into a mobile screen. At $60 its a stupid price but in my case, I paid $24 during their sale so I think its worth it for a sub-$25 pricetag. Add-ons are kind of overpriced to me, I rather pay another $20-25 for a seasonpass than paying for multiple $5 & $9 packs. Another cons is they don't allow zooming too close, I understand that it required a more powerful device to run the game with better details but still, I wanna zoom a bit closer into my cities lol. If you're a fan of the series, buy it right now while it on sale or you'll regret it!
  • Flawless Port

    By Positronic Matrix
    An absolutely flawless port. Its performance on my iPad Pro is identical to my iMac — fast on games if they are early/small and a bit slower on games if they are large. After hundreds of hours of play, I have had but a single crash, however thanks to iOS my progress was saved and I was able to resume immediately. I have always loved Civilization, however my responsibilities at the current stage of my life make it impossible for me to sit away at my computer for the 36-48 hours it takes for a solid game. Thanks to this port, I have played Civilization more in the last month than I have in the last two years. The iPad is Civilization’s natural platform, allowing one to be present in a room with others, pause as necessary, and move about as the day evolves. Another bonus is that when I’m working out on my stationary bicycle, the exercise time flies by while I’m playing. This port is a dream come true for me.
  • As good as the pc version

    By MattisNilsson
    Had my doubts at first that it would port as well as it has. I’m playing it on the xs max and it runs great obviously but I also downloaded it on my 8plus and it runs just as good on that. This is coming from someone who has played civ6 probably a little too much on my pc and now that it’s on my phone I’ll probably be playing it all the time. I payed $23 for the full version and definitely consider it money well spent if you have ever played civ6 on the pc you’ll be pleasantly surprised that from map sizes to settings , and gameplay everything is the same even the main menu. Civ6 also has a nice hot seat feature for multiplayer. basically if you like civilizations just buy it and if you haven’t ever played civilizations but love turn based games that have no ads try the free demo version but keep in mind it’s definitely a demo the amount of fun to be had isn’t really showcased.
