The Prince and the Coward is a 2D point and click adventure. The game is set in a fantasy kingdom. Young Galador makes a deal with the devil to become a prince and have a life full of adventures. Very quickly, Galador realizes this kind of life is not for him and now is trying to get back his old life.
The game is controlled by mouse (clicking on an item brings up a menu with possible actions) and apart from adventure puzzles, contains some minor arcade sequences.
Present in the game, the sorcerer Arivald is a character from the series of stories ("Arivald z Wybrzeża" - "Arivald from the Coast") written by Jacek Piekara.
Short PDF novel on CD
The game CD contains a PDF file of a short story called "Es ist nicht alles Gold, was glänzt (und umgekehrt)" - "All that glitters is not gold (and the other way round)" by Jacek Piekara. The story is only loosely connected to the game, but is nevertheless worth reading.
