Every level in Prince of Persia is more sinister and challenging than the previous one. You run into more proficient and powerful dungeon guards as you climb higher into the castle, and the booby traps set by the Grand Vizier require increasing skill and ingenuity.
Make no mistake. Prince of Persia is the lightest of light entertainment. There's no great brain-drain here and no social commentary. But what people too often forget is how difficult it is to be 'merely' entertaining and just how much fun 'light entertainment' can be. Star Wars was light entertainment, after all, and Prince of Persia is the Star Wars of its field.
