One of the many ways to die in this game
Some grog won't do damage... or was it just a healing potion?

Battling against the backdrop of a starry night
Our hero finds himself back in the dungeon; in this segment, he drinks a potion which makes him float gently down during a fall that would normally kill him
The mouse on the far ledge helps out by pressing the switch stone
This may look like the dungeon, but it actually has windows
The story cuts between regular static screens...
... and awful (to say the least) anime-styled screens, everything with voice overs every bit as terrible
The prince preparing to do his "constipated tiger" move on the prison bars
The dramatic hourglass scene
Game mode screen.
Graphics are midway between the 8 and 16 bit versions.
Pretty like Master System...
Prince getting his sword, hoping it will serve him better than it did to his last owner
"Is that a good or a bad potion?", the Prince wonders, looking at the fumes
If the fight was too fast for you, it's possible to slow down fights and how fast the prince moves.

A tutorial level
Fighting a guard in a palace level.
A duel with an Amazon guard.
Sometimes there are brief outdoor areas, like this nice moonlit bridge that connects two palace towers.
This guard is excellent at fencing.
The Prince's shadow blocks the way.
In the SNES version, the Prince finds himself in some kind of an underworld after the encounter with the shadow.
The underworld levels have appropriately styled flame traps.
The halls of the palace are exquisitely decorated.
The Princess' mouse comes to the rescue.
This is not a door to the next level, it's a teleporter...
...that will take you to an otherwise unreachable part of the level.
Another part of the palace, another style of decoration. The red carpet doesn't exactly mask the spike traps here.
These heavily armoured guards are either high-ranking officers or some sort of Jaffar's personal elite guard.
Title screen A

The famous time limit...
Hey, wait! I don't have a sword yet!
Typical situation: the Prince is dead
