Popular turn-based game Civilization VI, which has previously been available for the iPad, is today expanding to the iPhone. Aspyr Media, the company that ported the game to iOS, is making the iPad version universal, so customers who have already purchased Civilization VI for iPad can play on iPhone at no additional cost.

Civilization VI is a turn-based strategy game that tasks players with building an empire and advancing civilization from the Stone Age to the Information age. Exploring the surroundings, researching new technology, and conquering enemies are core gameplay elements.

To celebrate the launch of Civilization VI, the full game can be unlocked for $23.99, a 60 percent discount off of the regular price of $59.99. Players can also play through the first 60 turns to give the game a try before purchasing.

Civilization VI in particular offers cities that span multiple tiles, active research options through exploring and discovering new cultures, dynamic diplomacy options, and options to use multiple units per tile. There's a local multiplayer mode for cooperating and competing with friends, and for new players, there's a full tutorial system.

The game requires iOS 11 or later on an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, iPhone X, or iPhone XS or XS Max. On iPad, it works with the iPad Air 2, the 2017 and later iPad, and any iPad Pro model.

Civilization can be downloaded from the iOS App Store. [Direct Link]

Do game saves sync via iCloud or any other mechanism? Can you use an iPhone and an iPad interchangeably and resume your game, or are game saves trapped on the device you start on?

The first 3 hours were you not being able to leave the car due to “just one more turn!”, right? :-)

Is this really a FULL game or is it like somehow a partial port
It's the FULL game, including many of the DLC, (partial) mod support (!). The only thing it is missing is the strategy view. And Rise and Fall expansion is coming later.
