Nikolai's Pharaohs

You might have noticed that I've been adding Nikolai's Adventures titles to Macintosh Garden. Well unfortunately, I am missing just one known release; Nikolai's Pharaohs. Aside from it originally being available from H + a (which I sorely regret not getting at the time), I've never come across a copy for sale. If anyone out there on Macintosh Garden has a copy of this game, PLEASE upload it to the site! Or if it's for Windows, upload it to a third party storage site so I can at least finally try this game out. Thanks. Smile

According to allgame.com, there was also:

Nikolai's Knights, and
Nikolai's Mysteries

as hybrid releases. Nikolai's Pharoahs is also on there as a hybrid release.
Added it to my Saved Searches on eBay.

I do have Knights and Mysteries, I just haven't added them yet. Man, I gotta do that sometime.

Pharaohs is the only Nikolai game I'm missing. Looks just as good as Toys or Trains, if not more. I wonder if it has any gimmicks like Mysteries or Knights. But unfortunately, in my long searches over the years, I have not found a copy. Sad

Thanks for helping out berty. Laughing out loud

Please upload Knights and Mystery. Knights was my absolute favourite! Smile

Sorry for not doing anything for so long, I hastily added Nikolai's Mysteries to the site, I'll fill in the pictures and description later. I'll try to do Knights at some point as well, and upload some other missing games from the site, if I have time...

In other news, somebody uploaded a video of Nikolai's Pharaohs to YouTube... Brings a tear to my eye. It's like seeing footage of an unreleased game that you really wanted to play but never could. At least I know the game does in fact exist... Now if I could just play it. Or better yet, own a copy, so my Nikolai collection would be complete!

Only thing harder to find after that would be all the Nikolai promotional material. There was a cute Neow-Neow hand puppet, that would have been awesome to have.

I feel as if I have awoken from a cryogenic sleep. Sorry for my absence in the garden for what was it, two years? *sigh*, other projects drew me away from my beloved Macintosh.

I bring great news though. Better than great, this is the best news I've ever had.

I have obtained Nikolai's Pharaohs!!!

A copy popped up on eBay and I snapped it up. It will be added to Macintosh Garden shortly. I will also upload the H+a published Nikolai's Trains, Nikolai's Knights (both H+a and Corel versions) and I will add a link for Nikolai in Outer Space to each Nikolai page. I haven't found an equivalent to Macintosh Garden for Windows, so I'll just do that.

Later on I intend to sit at a scanner and scan all the paper/discs for the Nikolai series and add those to Macintosh Garden.

@epicMac: Do you have a copy of Nikolai's Knights? It seems to be the only Nikolai's Adventures game that isn't on Macintosh Garden.
