Title Prince of Persia Game Type Platform Players 1 Compatibility AGA Patch available Submission Angus Manwaring Profiled Reviewer Review Okay, Prince of Persia is a platform game, but somehow that doesn't seem to do it justice. I remember being impressed by the quality of the animation when I first saw the game, although the backgrounds and choice of palette are not exactly breathtaking. It's really the difficulty curve and design that make the game really stand out. Things start off on just the right side of frustrating, and although the game gradually gets tougher, the introduction of greater depth and twists in the plot, just make the game too much fun to give up on. The plot is basically that you have to escape the dungeons and upper levels in order to free the princess before the wicked wizard returns and forces himself on her.... or something. This must be completed within an hour of game time, which is fairly good going. Not my sort of game really, but it has been so well designed that I just had to finish it. What greater praise can I give?
