STORY / GAMEPLAY
Evil Jaffar (the Vizier of the Shah of Persia, the last wandering in a war far away from his kingdom) locks away the Persian Princess with an ultimatum: either marry Jaffar or die within an hour. You must navigate the dungeon (where the Princess is imprisoned) and stop Vizier before time runs out! You have to survive a variety of resistance along the way. You must avoid deadly traps, solve some simple puzzles and engage in sword fights with the guards. The Princess' room is guarded by Jaffar though...! Prince of Persia has a pretty interesting gameplay that sometimes gets a bit frustrating as it is difficult at times to avoid traps. The game was released for the Amstrad CPC, Amiga, Atari ST,PC Engine, Sega CD, Mega Drive, DOS, NES, SNES, Game Boy, GBC, Apple IIGS and MAC OS. Enough said! You've got only 60 minutes!
GRAPHICS / SOUND
The Game Gear (and Master System) version has great graphics that are actually better than any other 8bit home version! The characters are impressively animated, a detail that made this game so popular (apart from its great story and gameplay). The main character looks great, the animation is flawless, and gives a really human movement feel. PoP on the Game Gear is among its best games. As far as the sound, this version features the original intro music as well as a variety of in-game sound effects and short tunes.
