The Pulse-Quickening Action Never Stops...
The Prince of Persia CD Collection is like two Arabian Nights movies come to
life. Your heart will pound as you thrust and parry, brave bottomless chasms,
and navigate mazes which are filled not only with suspense, but cleverly
concealed death traps. Don't be deceived by the stunning graphics and hypnotic
soundtrack. One false step, one moment's hesitation, and you're history - and
rather gruesome history at that.
Designer Jordan Mechner worked from hundreds of actual movie clips to create
this classic action adventure series which Computer Gaming World called "a
masterpiece of animation, vivid action and daunting puzzles."
