Pharaoh has never existed for Mac, it's a Windows only game.
Wine can run Pharaoh, just the widescreen patch didn't work in my case.
So you should be able to run it this way

(I don't own a mac so I didn't test these instructions)
I run Pharao with Wineskin Winery (Engine WS9Wine1.5.16) on my MacBook Pro Mid-2009 very well. I had to adjust the speed (game speed: 60% / scrolling: 10%).
Even the Widescreen-Patch is working. Be sure to take this one: http://www.wsgf.org/dr/cleopatra-queen-nile/en (cleopatra.7z) [1280 x 800]

I cant get the widescreen patch working. I just get a black screen when i pick 1024x768 in game. Any suggestions?
Can you explain step by step what you have done?

The game work perfectly without the widescreen patch. But when I use the new exe file from the patch with my resolution, the screen goes black inside the game. Sound is still there but the screen is just black.
Did you try a different engine?
Different engine?
Yes
Simply use my wrapper up here and follow video instructions and up you go:

I just installed Pharaoh on my Mac and the mouse moves pretty fast. How did you adjust the speed to [ speed: 60% / scrolling: 10%]?

How did you adjust the game speed?
How do you go about saving it, so when you open it up and close it, that when you reopen it, it doesn't make you reinstall it?

Also - when I start the game the "mouse" icon disappears and I can't see where I'm clicking.
Hi,

I've managed to get it to play on mac as you've done.
What I've got a problem is the selection - I can't seem to stop it from selecting the last thing I tried to build. So it stops me from doing anything else. Is there a trick I'm missing?

Thanks,
Celia
