This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

Nikolai's Pharaohs is an educational, highly interactive storybook with many activities and fun things to do, part of the legendary, yet forgotten Nikolai's Adventures series of games.

In this adventure...

Nikolai and Neow-Neow become mighty Pharaohs in ancient Egypt and build their own pyramids.

Neow-Neow is much too clever to do any of the hard work, so he decides to copy Nikolai's pyramid design. When he gets lost inside Nikolai's pyramid, the fun really begins...

This game was tested with Mac OS 9.2.2, with the latest QuickTime and the video wouldn't display properly. The game works fine in Windows 98SE. The disc has been ripped to a Toast image successfully. It might just be my eMac that is the issue, or Pharaohs needs an old version of QuickTime. If you get it running on Mac OS, please comment on this page.

You will need MacRAR or similar program to decompress the archive, then a version of Toast to mount or burn the disc image.

Other games in the Nikolai series: Knights, Mysteries, Pirates, Toys, Trains, Treats

Nikolai in Outer Space can be downloaded here. It doesn't have a page on Macintosh Garden because it is for Windows 95 only.

Great news! I've installed and tested this game on my Macintosh Performa 580CD running Mac OS 8.1 with QuickTime 3.0.2 and got the graphics working! It looks like it's running well!
