Prince of Persia - A brilliant retro gaming classic is also coming to the Atari XL/XE

What a great Sunday this is turning out to be, as just moments ago we were told that the all time classic platformer of 'Prince of Persia' is also coming to the Atari XL/XE as a conversion/port by Rensoup (The other version coming to the Intellivision is currently being worked on by Matthew Kiehl). This game was originally released in 1989 by Brøderbund for multiple systems and featured lots of well designed platforming levels and extreme danger, as you must be careful not to fall through loose floors, get hit by sword wielding guards, crushed by gates or at worst skewered in blood on deadly spikes.

Currently we don't know when the game will be finished so it could be awhile yet, but from the last released video above and the teased downloadable 1st level wip demo. The developer has said the graphics have been ripped out from the BBC code, featured optimizations, as well as working in a virtual environment, learning the Atari HW, and doing various graphics and loading tests. As for further improvements, the sprite is likely to improved, as well as graphical changes and main levels.
