    Short summary describing this game.

    The game is based on Hammurabi, King of Babylon, a city-state of ancient Mesopotamia (present-day Iraq), during 1792-1750 BC.

    The game, which was first developed and released on mainframe computers in the early 1970s, and then subsequently ported to home computers, is the first city-builder made.

    As a simulation, Hamurabi inspired later games such as Sid Meier's Civilization and a number of other similar resource-management simulations.
