Current MobyGoal: Help us reach 250 documented ZX81 Games

Setting: Middle East

Group Description

This group include games set in the Middle East (a geographical region that includes Western Asia and Egypt), or a fantasy environment reminiscent of common themes associated with the region's culture, in particular the time period of ca. 7th to 16th century AD, known as the Islamic Golden Age. Fantasy-themed games may often feature supernatural themes reminiscent of Arabian Nights and similar stories.

Note: Games set in ancient Egypt or a fantasy environment resembling it should be excluded from this group. Games set in Egypt are selectable for the group only if their timeline is set after the country was conquered by the Arabs in the 7th century.
