Banished is a city building strategy game. In this game you build a city starting with a few people.

4 seasons
In this game you need to adept to the seasons. When it’s wintertime you can’t go fishing, because the water is frozen and you can’t farm, because crops won’t grow.

These 4 seasons and the effect they have in this game are really nicely done. It will take some time before you know how to get through the seasons without making any losts.

Easy for beginners?
Using the tutorials in the main menu you can get a good base to play the game. Ofcourse you need to experiment more during the game itself on what works better in what season. Once you understand the system it’s not really a challenge anymore and you can build a very large city and make it through a year without any deaths.

This game is very challenging in the beginning. The moment you understand the system you will see the game will lose it’s difficulty and the game actually become boring at some point. With keeping this in mind the game does deliver a very good city building game. Make sure everyone has enough food and get’s an education is something you still can spend alot of hours playing this game. Therefore I give this game a 70 out of 100.
