Game Review

Pharaoh is a city building simulation game set in the ancient Egypt, developed by Impressions Games and published by Sierra Entertainment in 1999 for Windows.

The game uses the Caesar III engine, with a 2D isometric view, and it allows players to manage the creation of cities, the growth of the population, taking care of the health and protection of citizens at the times of the ancient Egypt.

The game received very positive reviews and it was followed by a sequel, Cleopatra: Queen of the Nile.

Note for Mac users: the new version v1.1 now includes a patch that will make the sound effects work.

Are there any news for Wineskin games on Mac OS 10.15 Catalina? I loved playing Pharaoh, but didn't realise that upgrading my computer to Catalina would make it impossible to play as Wineskin apparently doesn't work on Catalina. So looking forward to an updated version!

If you have the flickering problem, try CMD+M in the game, it ceases the flickering.

The game worked fine until one of the last missions, when completing it, the game shuts down =( I'm re-installing it now. Great game anyway, thanks for the uppload! =)

Hi everyone.
To solve the flickering screen on Mac, press cmd+alt+esc and problem solved.
If when you press them, it exits the game, then press cmd+alt+esc BEFORE launching the game. Then, on Window click Zoom, then again on Window, click on minimize and open again the game window. That's how it worked for me.

Honestly I'm surprised that so many other people enjoyed this game as much as I did. Always enjoyed RTS games but Pharoah always stood apart from the others.

Huzzah! It works! Even on my Mac! I'm so excited to relive my childhood! ^.^

Yes, I'm running it on Windows 10 and the only problem I'm have is that it freezes some times. Although, I think that is because my CD has been well loved so to speak. Don't do a full install, I ran into problems with that, click minimum install and it will install perfectly.

Loved this sim game. haven't played it in years I still have the CD. Will this work in win 10?
