Prince of Persia is one of the most successful platformer games in history. Released back in 1989 for the Apple II, this game was followed by commercial successes and launched a wave of several remakes including additional continuations to the story. Its fluid animations and challenging levels were considered revolutionary during its time.

The Prince of Persia's story is heavily influenced by one of the tales of the Mid-Eastern folk tales One Thousand and One Arabian Nights, more specifically, the tale of Aladdin. The plot revolves around an eponymous Prince who has been imprisoned by the Grand Vizier Jaffar, and the princess that he needs to rescue. Jaffar cursed the Sultan's daughter to marry him or she will die in exactly one hour.

The player must navigate his way out of the trap-filled dungeon and into the heavily-fortified tower to defeat the evil Grand Vizier and rescue the princess, all the while confronting the player's doppelganger that was conjured to stop him.
