The game stays true to the chronological order and timing of major events in the history of Egypt, including monument construction, wars and national disasters, the births and deaths of notable leaders, and the founding and fall of ancient cities.

Apart from the names of various Pharaohs, historical characters who appear in the game are the Royal Architect Imhotep as well as references to Moses in a Cleopatra mission.

Pharaoh is based on the same game engine as Caesar III, also by Sierra Entertainment, and operates on the same principles. There have been many changes, most notably the introduction of monument construction and flood-plain farming.

In addition to the campaign there are a dozen standalone scenarios, some without win conditions allowing open-ended "sandbox" city-building. A map editor facilitating user-designed scenarios completes the suite.
