Immortal Cities: Children of the Nile is the first PC game to flawlessly blend city-building, real-time strategy and society development. It was the first city-building game released after a year-long drought (SimCity 4 was released January 2003) and is a cooperative effort of designers of previous best-selling city-building games, notably Pharaoh and Caesar. Everyone in your city is alive - they work, they play, they have children, they grow old. The ability to zoom right in and explore your city at street level means that you can get up close to your civilisation as they strive for wealth and success. PC Gamer described Children of the Nile as "Ancient Egypt city-builder with Cleopatra looks" and gave it a review score of 80%.
