ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Programmed by Broderbund
in France, Prince of Persia is a triumph of animation techniques and game design, and should not be missed.
En plus d’être novateur et techniquement très abouti, Prince of Persia est un jeu prenant qui ne vous lâchera qu’une fois terminé. Ce classique a d'ailleurs inspiré d’autres titres légendaires tels que Flashback ou Tomb Raider. PoP est de cette trempe de jeux qui ont marqué l’histoire du jeu vidéo et qui font dire à ceux qui y ont joué : «J’y étais».
The arcade adventure classic makes its way to the PC. and it's as good as you could possibly hope to get. The original was hardly inspiring graphically, but the animation of the characters was superb. Thankfully this has not been lost on the PC version, it still has some of the most impressive sprite movement you will see.
Adventure Classic Gaming
Prince of Persia may not exactly be an adventure game in its truest form, but it is a series that certainly deserves attention as among the best of the classic computer and console games. Created by Jordan Mechner, Prince of Persia is his second game project after Karateka, another classic that has long been a popular game on the Commodore and Apple platforms.
