With only 85 turns to build your empire, can you repel the barbarian hordes? This award-winning game design is a unique blend of strategy and puzzle gameplay.
A mysterious fog has covered your empire. As a Pharaoh of Mythic Egypt, you must explore the land to sweep away the fog and learn what remains of your kingdom. Once you have found the cities and mines that have been lost in the fog, you can rebuild your empire by building trade routes and developing technology. But don't take too long! After 85 turns, the barbarians attack. Will your empire withstand their assault, or will your enemies smash it into rubble?

More iOS 7 fixes.
NEWLY DISCOVERED RARE GEM!
I don't like strategy games or civilization, but there was something about this game (lite version) that made me buy it before I even got thru the whole tutorial. It's really fun, and the more you think about each turn, the depth of the overall strategic elements emerge like magic.
Deep and interesting
Endless replay value due to (mostly) well-balanced levels. I appreciate that wins are not a given, even with optimal strategy. This has become my go-to game when I have a few minutes downtime.
Love this game!
Now that it's been upgraded for the latest iOS, the app is working great. The game is unique, challenging, and offers multiple skill levels. I never get tired of playing. We'll worth the price!
