In Ancient Egypt, death awaits at every corner

Only the most audacious warriors will have any chance of success. The Pharaoh's army and countless dangerous creatures will stand in your way.
Original and streamlined combat system
Polish your combat skills to the finest and loot the best gear possible to even have the slightest chance of overcoming this difficult endeavor. Will you opt for lightweight equipment, trusting on your agility to avoid death? Or will you prefer to take the blow and strike back even harder? The decision is entirely yours to make.
Get ready to challenge the gods
Throughout your path you will find help from the Daughters of Ishtar, as well as the oppresed countrymen. Learn new skills and subdue divine powers to overcome your opponents. Drink from your life-water canteen to heal your wounds, and acquire new equipment that will help you avoid death one more day.
It's a tough journey, but the Gods believe in you. Will you be worthy of that honor?
Pharaonic takes the excellent combat design of Dark Souls and adapts it to a faster paced side-scrolling environment. Use your shield to block and parry incoming attacks, manage your stamina and wait for your chance to attack and defeat your enemies. A single mistake can be fatal, so stay on your toes to avoid making any.
This is an excellent 2.5D adventure game. Don't let the fact that it came out of nowhere fool you, this is one good game. It plays exactly like a 2D Dark Souls. The combat is phenomenal; deep and complex, no two encounters are the same. There are a variety of moves and combos that you can execute and everything takes timing. This is no button masher. Of all the things this game has (and it has a lot) what I love the most is the RPG elements. You have a deep equipment setup and you can mix and match from a variety of weapons, armour and gear. Speaking of weapons, you get different types and weights and everything reacts differently. It takes real strategy to set your charcter up. And as to your character, he or she levels up and gains abilities. There are side quests that you can complete along the way. Heck, the story is even good! This game has everything!
Pharaonic is an excellent 2.5D adventure game. It plays exactly like a 2D Dark Souls. The combat is phenomenal, akin to dark souls! It is very deep and complex, with no two encounters ever being the same. Furthermore, there is a variety of moves and combos that you can do and everything takes precise timing and skill. Button smashing will only lead to defeat, and timed attacks are necessary. The equipment itself is as unique as the equipment in dark souls. You can mix and match from a variety of weapons, armor and gear. Everything has their own weights and everything reacts differently to enemies. It takes real strategy to set level character up, forcing you to make decisions about stat distributions and more. I did a ton of side quests as well along the way and they were as good as the main story! Overall, Pharaonic has been a lot of fun and filled my desire for another dark souls game!
