The Rescue

From Populous Wiki

(Redirected from Populous: The Rescue)

Populous: The Rescue is a Populous 3 single player campaign with 25 original levels created by user:Divinity ( Popre Divinity. Special thanks to Sulivan, GBA1990, Impboy, Kosjak for helping with scripting questions/guides. It is not intended for new players, having almost no learning curve, being most levels at least medium difficulty. This campaign does not show the typical spell and buildings progression as in the original Populous: The Beginning campaign, since it has a different story line, which happens long before. It will probably be released in late 2018.


Populous: The Rescue

Made by: Divinity

Difficulty: Medium to Very Hard (average is Hard)


You will be able to read the storyline on the first level, so why don't you try it? New original features were added, so it's better to play the levels in order, so you understand what some items in the campaign do, and how they work! Some things include: teleporting obelisks, sacrificing stones, magic runes, spirit of the woods, teleporting, holes, magical gates, etc... It follows an interesting storyline, with plot twists and lots of suffering in the middle.


To make the campaign hard, new features were introduced (such as the above), and the AI might have great mana, or bigger base. Blue spells are limited most of the times, and sometimes there are timers or curses on the levels, which make it even harder.
