The sultan has left his kingdom on sovereign business. During his absence, much has happened. His daughter, the Princess, has fallen in love with a wandering traveler. However, the power-hungry Grand Vizier Jaffar has started his plan to take over the kingdom. He has used his power to arrest the Princess's new-found love and imprison him. Further, she has been given an hour to make a decision she loathes: marry Jaffar . . . or die.
In Prince of Persia, you take control of the wandering traveler inside the prison of the sultan's kingdom. "I will save you and crush Jaffar's ambitions forever," you declare with the Princess in mind.
On your way to living up to your vow, you will encounter obstacles such as long jumps and spikes in the floor. Meanwhile, guards with swords will challenge you to duels. As if those challenges were not difficult enough, you have only 59 minutes in which to succeed and become the Prince of Persia. ~ Christopher Michael Baker, All Game Guide
