Builders Of Egypt Keyboard Shortcuts and Hotkeys

You might have played a city-building game before, but not one like Builders of Egypt. This city management/economic simulator puts you in control of the development of the Nile Valley, where you will engage in the urban planning of a thriving civilization in the shadow of the pyramids. Place streets, design buildings, and layout your city with skill in order to entice people to visit and increase your income.


In addition to the city planning, you’ll also need to deal with matters of diplomacy and politics. These difficult choices will shape your city just as much as street layout, and careful consideration of different requests is important to avoid having an all-out civil war on your hands.


There is also religion, trade, monuments, and military action to consider as the leader of this city. Whew! That’s an awful lot of responsibility, and it would be a shame for a wrong button press to result in the total collapse of the city you worked so hard to design and build up. Thankfully, we have all of the keyboard shortcuts and hotkeys you need to achieve success right here, so make sure you use them!

    Mike has been playing video games since he was able to hold a controller, having been fascinated by Sonic 2 on his mom’s Sega Genesis. That fascination and passion for the art form has grown exponentially nearly 30 years later, and he doesn’t see that fading away anytime soon.
