Pharaoh is a simulation game which gives you a chance to become the Pharaoh of all Egypt. (and possibly the whole world). By applying common sense and experience, you attempt to make a vast agricultural community thrive and grow. You make and break deals with other kingdoms, fight wars, manage revolts, and monitor the day to day operation of your farming communities.
You start with nothing, but the banks remember your heritage and are willing to extend you a small loan. You use the money they lend you to build the seeds of a huge empire. Over the years you expand your empire, gaining land, wealth, and power. And when your empire has reached the size and power which you deem necessary, you attempt to erect a monument of such vast enormity, that you will be remembered for thousands of years to come.
The going is never easy. There are many obstacles in your way. Famines, floods, aggressive neighbors, even terrorists. But with skillful management, and some clever strategies, you can prevail and grow. And if you do, you will become the greatest ruler of all time.Compatibility
