Install and Setup the DomiNations Game for iPhone 6
Edited by Grimm, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
You're watching VisiHow! In this tutorial, we are going to teach you how to install and set up the DomiNations game for the iPhone 6 .
To begin, we give a single press to the Home button at the bottom of the phone.
Alternatively, we can also press the Lock button.
Then, we can swipe across to enter the phone.
We may need to put in the PIN or passcode or put the thumb or a finger on the fingerprint scanner, which is also the Home button.
Once we are in the phone, the very first thing we want to do is to tap the blue App Store icon.
The icon is square, and it has a white "A" in the center of it. The "A" is actually a combination of craftsman's and harvester's tools implying the creativity of the folks who create the wonderful applications that we get in the App Store.
Now, what we are looking for is actually the search icon at the bottom of the screen.
We give the search icon a quick tap. When we are in the search function, we can see that there is a whole series of icons.
We are just going to tap the search window on top.
We can tap the found result if it comes up earlier.
"dominations" is a popular download. It is a game that, basically, starts out with us in a hut. It is a lot like Sid Meier's Civilization (for those who are familiar with it). What we do is we build our society up through the ages.
We tap "DomiNations" to be taken to the actual application page.
The explanation on the page reads "Build a nation, establish alliances, go to war, expand, evolve. From legendary game designer Bryan Reynolds" who also worked on Civilization II and Rise of Nations. This is a game that can be actually quite interesting and quite good.
What we want to do is tap "GET" to download the game.
When it is downloaded, it will be shown as "OPEN" (as it is in this example) on the top right side of the screen.
We tap "OPEN" to launch the game.
DomiNations is successfully installed and launched on the phone. There is an old man saying: "Welcome to the dawn of civilization! I am Pompus the Wise, you advisor. Your wandering tribe needs a place to sleep. Tap on that pile of sticks to get started". A pile of sticks is a good sleeping location.
Let's tap on the pile of sticks.
Now, we tap the "Build" button so that we can build something from the pile of sticks.
That's how creative we are. We can ask ourselves why we can build something from a pile of sticks. It's because even back then they had VisiHow, and that's how we learned to build things from piles of sticks.
Now, we are going to drag "Home" around until we are happy with the location of it.
If we like sleeping in the trees, we can put the house next to a tree.
We tap the house to place it.
The house is going to be built in the trees. Now, bards will sing of things, even though we have not built any musical instruments yet.
We are going to build another house by tapping another pile of sticks.
We tap on the Build button.
We now have another set of houses, or, in this case, a single house.
Let's put it next to the previous house by dragging "Home".
This way, we started early with a crowded metropolis-type construction.
If we need food, we tap a deer.
We tap "Hunt" to make the deer a dinner.
People will come and dine upon the poor deer.
We can also tap more animals and deer to hunt them.
At this stage of the game, the people are in very primitive times. That means that our people, tribe, and societies are very simple.
We can also gather food from the trees by tapping "Gather".
Let's do it and tap trees first to gather food from them. We can get food only from a certain type of trees. There might be no food trees after we gather some of them.
Now, we can expand the settlement.
In order to do that, we tap a forest to clear it away.
We tap "Clear".
We can also uncover treasures if we clear a forest and make room for our growing city.
Let's tap the confirmation button with the price to clear the forest.
In this example, it takes 6 seconds to clear. Apparently, we are going to spend a little for it. Clearing the forest lets us build things as the little fellow informs us in the game.
It appears that some treasure is found in the forest in this video.
This is surprising.
This is how we get started with the game.
In the top right corner, the game will say "Dawn age". That means that we are in the very beginning.
We tap "Continue" to continue clearing our forest.
What we need to do is we need to get gold, food, we need to have our royals, and we need to be able to build and expand our city. Once we expand to a certain point, we'll be able to progress further in the game and choose a nation. Once you've chosen a nation, you will be able to team up with other people. It's a very interesting game. It has a twist of Clash of Clans. DomiNations might interest the fans of Clash of Clans, Celtic Tribes, Boom Beach, or any other similar nation-building games. To consider if we want to try the game out, we can check a few more tutorials on DomiNations on VisiHow. From there, it will be easy to decide whether it is an interesting game or not.
Thank you very much for choosing VisiHow. Leave any questions, comments, or suggestions for us in the area below. We hope to see you in the game. Have a great day!
