Prince of Persia C64 - Retro Platformer Remade!

Now this is impressive, especially if you have a C64 emulator handy. This is a conversion of the very original and very retro Prince of Persia for the C64 by Mr Sid with added C64 music.  Prince of Persia never came to the C64 as it originally came out on the Apple II then developed for the Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST and MS-DOS. This game is of true brilliance, as a multitude of platforming levels was met with falling floors, sword wielding enemies, crashing grates and at worst deadly spikes. It was a fluid game and you really felt as if the character was alive with his life like movement.

The Grand Vizier has captured the Sultan's daughter and has given her an ultimatum, either marry him, or die! It is your task to get out of the dungeons and rescue her from her cell before the Grand Vizier kills her. This is no small task, yet it's amazing how beautiful a game can look with so limited amount of colours, isn't Nostalgia grand!
