Prince of Persia is a popular series of computer games about the adventures of a brave prince with amazing acrobatic and combat skills. Games have intuitive controls that can be customized to your liking.
The very first game called Prince of Persia was released back in 1989 and is the author's development of the programmer Jordan Meckner. Currently, there are several of its reprints, "sharpened" for modern computers. The game has a 2B projection (side view). Control is carried out by arrows "up", "down", "right", "left" on the keyboard. The player needs to find a way out of the level, avoiding numerous traps and climbing through all kinds of obstacles. From time to time there are enemies, in order to defeat them you need to find a sword.
In 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2010, re-releases were released with modern graphics and gameplay in the style of Third person action, which had additional titles: The Sands of Time, Warrior Within, The Two Thrones and The Forgotten Sands … The style of the games is similar to the original: you still need to complete levels, solving puzzles, avoiding obstacles and fighting enemies. However, now the prince has the ability - by pressing a special key (by default Shift and the right mouse button), using a magic dagger, he slows down time or rewinds it back, which helps to defeat enemies more effectively and prevent death in case of falling into a trap.
In 2008, the series spun off and a game was released with the original title: Prince of Persia. It is closer to the very first development more than the "sand" series. The playstyle and character controls have undergone significant changes. Now, in addition to the prince, players have the opportunity to control his partner Elika, who helps the main character climb into previously inaccessible places. To perform acrobatic stunts, it is now enough to press 1-2 keys, while previously it was necessary to build whole combinations for this. Fighting with enemies has also become easier. The prince was endowed with several abilities, one of which was the rewind of time, beloved by the players.
