Immerse yourself in Ancient Egypt from the age of the great pyramids to the final years of the New Kingdom. Govern all aspects of the exotic Egyptian, culture from religion to trading with distant cities. Cultivate vast farms in the Nile valley and discover the important role this river, with its unpredictable floods, played in the life of the Egyptians. Stone by stone, erect giant monuments - from the Sphinx, to the lighthouse and library of Alexandria.
Manage your city poorly and you shall watch it burn, be pillaged or collapse in economic ruin. Manage it well and ultimately the greatest Egyptian structures will be built in your honor. Your rule will span generations, until your dynasty, your royal bloodline produces a Pharaoh!
Pharaoh includes many features never before seen in a city building game, such as a farming model based on the flooding of the Nile, naval warfare, giant monuments that are assembled over time, unique dynastic progression, and variable difficulty levels. This a massively addictive, huge, but most importantly fun game that is a great choice for anyone looking for a solid city builder title, or an intellectual challenge.
Pharaoh + Cleopatra bundle includes Pharaoh and Cleopatra: Queen of the Nile expansion.
A city-builder gem, made by the creators of the award-winning Caesar III.
Extensive help section not only does an excellent job at explaining the game mechanics, but also contains many interesting facts and trivia about life in Ancient Egypt.
Destroy enemies on land and sea, or simply build the perfect Egyptian city of your liking with the City Construction Kit.

Pharaoh + Cleopatra reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Pharaoh + Cleopatra And Another German Game that doesn't exist in German on Steam. The Version presented here in English is lighter than the German Orginal. This is, for example, not a Disadvantage. Because this allows you to complete your Tasks faster without the Game content suffering. You can play this Game without English knowledge, but you can miss a Lot of well-designed and structured Text. Pharaoh is through the entire History of Egypt, from the beginnings of their Culture to the takeover by the Romans to Cleoprata's Times. Although I have played many hundreds of Hours with growing Enthusiasm, I do not yet know a large number of Cards. This is because there are so many Cards and you often have the Choice on which one you continue to play, which leads you to play only a specific Part in each new Kampanie. This Game is based on the Caesar III engine, but is more developed and made significantly better. You start a new Egyptian Family in Paraoh and take on the Central task of guiding And developing the swollen of the Inhabitants. As long as you don't make the Gods the Enemy, you should be Successful with it. But paying attention to some Cards are really hard to master ... This Game is based on the historical State Of knowledge of 1999 and is probably based on the knowledge of the German Egyptian Institute. Historically, the Developers have put a lot Of effort into programming as analytical as possible at the time. It's exciting and fun. Attention!!! : Does not Rotate the Map in the Game, as this leads to Structural Damage to buildings under Construction. It is also not necessary to rotate the Map, as the 2D Graphics are easy to see. Here are some good Reviews of me: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/hoi4deu Pharaoh + Cleopatra And another German game that does not exist in German on Steam. The here in English version is easier than the German original. That's not a disadvantage. Because you can complete your tasks faster without the game content suffers. You can play this game without knowledge of English, but you will miss a lot of well-designed and articulated text. Pharaoh will guide you through the history of Egypt from the beginnings of its civilization to its adoption by the Romans at Cleoprata's time. Although I have played with growing enthusiasm for many hundreds of hours, I still do not know a lot of cards yet. This is because there are so many cards and you often have the choice on which you continue to play, which means that you will play in each new campaign only a certain part. This game is based on the Caesar III engine, but has been developed and made much better. You found a new Egyptian family in Paraoh and take over the central task of managing and developing the destinies of the inhabitants. As long as you do not make the gods an enemy you should be successful in doing so. But beware some maps are really hard to master ... This game is based on the historical knowledge of 1999 and probably based on the findings of the German Egyptian Institute. Historically, the developers have gone to great derivates to make it as authentic as it was possible to program at the time. It's exciting and fun. Watch out!!! Does not rotate the card in the game, as this leads to structural damage to buildings under construction. It is also not necessary to rotate the Map, as the 2D graphics are clearly visible.
