Navigate the dungeon and stop Vizier before time runs out in an exciting action adventure featuring excellent character animations! Prince Of Persia is one of the most famous video games ever created for the 8bit and 16bit home computers and consoles!
 
Review
Prince of PersiaSTORY / 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 graphics on the Amstrad CPC are pretty good. I must admit at this point that all 8bit versions (CPC, ZX, Apple II, MGT) are awesomely done. The characters are impressively animated, which is exactly the detail that made this game so popular. Although the main character sports very little detail his movements are almost real life. The Amstrad CPC version features the original intro, Middle East style music as well as a few in-game sound effects.

Hardware information

Amstrad CPC 464/664/6128

Amstrad CPC 464/664/6128CPU: ZiLOG Z80 4MHZ
MEMORY: 64 KB or 128 KB of RAM depending on the model (capable of being expanded to 512k using memory extension boards)
GRAPHICS: Motorola 6845 address generator, Mode 0: 160x200 / 16 colors, Mode 1: 320x200 / 4 colors, Mode 2: 640x200 / 2 colors, A colour palette of 27 colors was supported
SOUND: The CPC used the General Instrument AY-3-8912 sound chip, providing 3 channels Mono Sound (via internal speaker) but capable to offer Stereo Sound provided through a 3.5 mm headphones jack (with pretty impressive outcome!). Also, it is possible to play back digital sound samples at a resolution of approximately 5bit. This technique is very processor-intensive though.

Άλλο κάψιμο με αυτήν την παιχνιδάρα. Δεν μπόρεσα ποτέ να το τελειώσω, ούτε στον CPC ούτε σε κανένα άλλο υπολογιστή.
