Pharaoh is a city-building game set in Ancient Egypt and is now classed as Abandonware (see below). The player begins by constructing a settlement and then building progressively grander cities until attaining the rank of Pharaoh. There are 38 missions in total including monument building and military exploits. I’ve run this game on my Windows 7 laptop without any problems

Copyright holders rarely enforce their abandonware copyrights for a number of reasons – chiefly among which the software is technologically obsolete and therefore has no commercial value.
