Idol Hands is a strategy game where you gradually take over the world by guiding your people and defeating other gods.

You are a god in a time of many gods. Rather than having direct control over your people’s actions, your people will live their own lives; placing buildings, growing crops, and micro managing themselves.

Without you, your people are directionless!

Your powers will provide them with usable land, protect them from attack, and control nature to their benefit.

With your help they can grow and prosper; allowing them to increase the bounty of their harvests, and learn skills to eventually forming an immense fighting force that you can unleash upon your enemy’s population to wipe them out, leaving any other god powerless and defeated.

Key Features:

  • Play God with a nation of followers ready to respond to your command.
  • Shape a beautiful and fully-3D land as you see fit, carving out your perfect world.
  • Feel the power! Unleash massive natural disasters, striking your enemies down before you.
  • Play the game in the way that you want to. Multiple strategies mean that no two games will ever be the same.

Idol Hands reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
For me, Idol Hands is one of the Games that have degenerate on my Wish List for an eternal Time. Many Reviews advise against the Game for a variety Of reasons, which also made me take Away first. Now that I have been able to look at myself, I have to say: It's not even that bad, but it's not perfect! Most of what has been criticized is absolutely the Control and I can only agree: Yes, it is not really PC suitable! You could have put absolutely a little more Work in, reworking the Controls, which would not have been a big Tear at all. In the Long run, however, you can also get used to the control IF you learn to ignore WASD (WASD-Movement currently locked the Mouse in the Center of the image, which in my Eyes makes the WASD control superfluous and fritidy). Overall, I personally do not find the Control to be seriously obstructive, but it would always be better. The Graph is overall "ok." The Models seem really sweet and creative, but a little too polygoneal (For Mobile it would be just right, but for PC not so real). But overall, there is no Shortcoming in my Eyes. You can see it in full neutral. The Difficulty, on the other hand, is a very different Problem. I mean: I'm far from GOOD at RTS. But with the simplest Tactics that come to Mind very quickly, Opponents can be braked out pretty well and overrun. I don't have the Game completely through yet, but the Level Of difficulty so far seems like "Light" if not "Very Light." The AI is not even so bad, but it also finds its Limits somewhere. (Edit: Not much has happened to it. In the last real Match, the AI does make a little more Pressure, but the Player is so well played by then, so it's still "Light"). Even a few Bugs can still be found even now (Patches don't seem to exist any more as far as I can tell about Steam). So it can happen that the iron collectors do not collect iron, if one does not first sink the Iron Deposit into the Ground and then straighten the Surface, but directly straightens the Surface. Also, Villagers have been used anywhere on the Map where I can't imagine that's wanted. So all in all, you would have to say: There would actually have to be a good 1 Month'S work and Polishing in order to do the Game properly, but that will never happen, I suppose. Still, I give a Thumbs up, for a very simple Reason: Despite its Variety of Quirks, the Game was really Fun and was absolutely playable even with smaller Buggs! :) For the Salary price (€1.24) I can always make a Buy recommendation to all, who are not easily small-minded from the above. Everyone else should maybe avoid the Game. For the Normal Price (currently €4.99million only) I can only recommend it to those who have never had anything to do with the Genre (and find it interesting) and also not be intimidated by the above.
