About This Game

Children of the Nile: Alexandria is an addition to the base Children of the Nile game, adding a new mini-campaign focused on the rise of the city of Alexandria.

Using the unique city-building dynamics of Children of the Nile, you will carve out a new dynasty to rule all of Egypt, and build the greatest city of the ancient world! Each person in your city is a fully developed person, with wants and needs. Tend to their needs and they will work for you so that you can create a powerful empire and a lasting legacy.

In Alexandria, you assume the role of the new Pharaohs of Egypt, in a three-scenario mini-campaign set during and after the final stages of Alexander the Great's career. Consolidate your power as Alexander's former lieutenants vie for control of his empire, all while growing a massive new Egyptian capital and constructing new massive monuments: the Great Lighthouse and Great Library of Alexandria!

Children of the Nile Alexandria is the expansion pack to Children of the Nile and where the main game survived solely on the fact that the city builder genre is almost dead, forcing fans to either suffer through it or starve, the expansion pack is starting to make starvation look mighty delicious.

Alexandria does not address any of the main game's problems or deficiencies, it simple adds a few campaign and a few new buildings.

Unfortunately the maps are few and broken, missing base resources making playing through them increasingly frustrating without fan made patches. The new buildings, the Great Works, serves little purpose, simply being prettier pyramids you can't get buried in.

Alexandria does however have one redeeming quality however, it is one of the only DLC's that can consistently be given away on Steamgifts without any entries. Even a month long giveaway will only attract 3-4 entries making it a great troll giveaway.

If you're looking for a revised classic this is not it. Lets call it a city builder on rails w/ little to no variety. Your decisions are guided and you dont have much choice in how youy complete an objective.

Avoid, avoid, avoid. I played Children of the Nile for a bit and retired in frustration. I don't mind a complicated, technical game, if I'm having fun at the same time. This game has poor controls, minimal player engagement. It seems mostly like an exercise in bean counting. I was hoping for more of an Age of Empires experience.

I fell in love with Zeus, Master of Olympus as a child and had a problem finding a copy of the game. Then someone told me about Children of the Nile on a message board when I was talking about how much I loved Zeus. This is a worthy successor, a very well done game. Simply amazing! I have wasted countless hours playing this game. I've had it for a while and the game is very well made. It is a city-building game, and one of the few that are great. Children of the Nile and Tilted Mill had definatly rose the bar on quality city-building games, so much that I get disappointed by others and come crawling back.

This game is well worth it. Very well worth it.
