Description of Prince of Persia

Prince of Persia was released in 1989 on the Apple II and received critical acclaim followed by commercial success when released in Japan the following year. The fluid character animations, considered cutting edge at the time, were based on videos of the game designer’s brother performing stunts as well as action sequences from classic films. The plot, influenced by the Arabian Nights tales, revolves around the eponymous Prince who has been imprisoned by the evil Grand Vizier Jaffar. He has one hour to escape the dungeon and rescue the Sultan’s daughter who has been placed under a curse by Jaffar and given a choice to marry him or die! A side scrolling action game, gameplay consists of navigating Jaffar’s dungeons and later his tower by running, climbing and avoiding traps (along with Jaffar’s guards). As the game progresses, the Prince will also be hindered by his own doppelganger, conjured up by Jaffar to thwart him. Although simple by today’s standards, it’s still very playable, the gameplay has inspired many future cinematic action platformers such as Flashback. A sequel Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow of the Flame would be released in 1993 followed by a successful gaming franchise.
