For Immediate Release

San Francisco, California– February 28, 2013– A fun and fast-paced city builder, Fate of the Pharaoh, today exploded onto Google Play, Kindle Fire and Nook, care of G5 Entertainment and Cateia Games. Fate of the Pharaoh takes you to the Ancient Egypt and tasks you with rebuilding the kingdom and restoring peace and prosperity to the land along the river Nile.

With your trusty advisor as your guide, Fate of the Pharaoh steers you through 44 levels, with two modes of play and a few achievements to grab along the way. Fate of the Pharaoh is very linear. It stars off with very simple instructional missions, then adds more complicated mechanics in phases in order to ease you into the game.

Construct homes for your people, set-up production lines, trade, please gods, fight crocodiles and dangerous cobras while building monuments and famous wonders of Egyptian realm. Then, be visited by aliens from space who will teach you secrets of how to build the mighty pyramids! In addition to collecting taxes, you'll task your people to fetch water and food, mine materials, repair buildings, upgrade houses and clear obstacles. All of this has to be commanded by you. Manually. Which means your finger will never be still.

Each level has its own points meter and a timer that keeps track of your progress. Keep an eye on the Time of Ra if you play in the Adventure mode that grows more and more challenging as the game progresses. If you complete a level before the timer runs out, you will get serious bonus points. If you beat the timer, you also get a shiny gold star beside the completed level on the main map. Enjoy the relaxed mode during your afternoon breaks, on the weekends, or in the evening after school or work.

Cartoonish artwork, lighthearted gameplay, cheerful music, thematic scenery and diverting animation create a perfect and fun atmosphere and ensure loads of entertainment. Can you return Egypt to its days of glory?
