A follow up to the classic 1989 Prince of Persia game by Jordan Mechner, this sequel delivered more of the same platform gameplay that made the original game such a smash hit. It also featured the original’s devilish difficulty, but with bigger and more detailed areas to explore, and pumped up combat. Because while the original game featured plenty of engaging and beautifully animated swordfights, you only ever faced one opponent at a time, while the sequel would pit the prince against multiple adversaries at once.

And those looking to take this pretty good entry in the Prince of Persia series out for a spin will be glad to hear that it was remade in 2013 for iOS devices, with high definition graphics and other modern enhancements. In particular the original game’s brutal difficulty was toned down (enemies would no longer kill the player in 3 swipes!) and potions to restore the prince’s life and checkpoints to resume the game were plentiful, letting players enjoy the game’s platforming action and sword fighting at a more sedate pace…
