New iPhone Game: Retro Prince of Persia

If I were to say the words “Prince of Persia” to you right now, you’d probably think actor Jake Gyllenhaal in the upcoming movie. But the video game that the movie is based on is a remake of a platform-style game, which was originally released on Apple II and then other platforms.

However, according to an article at mashable.com that was written by Stan Schroeder, it looks like the original game is coming to the iPhone under the name “Prince of Persia Retro.” The game was due to be released by Ubisoft on 29th April, but it still doesn’t appear to be in the app store.

While some may be wondering what is so special about the “Prince of Persia” game, others will be eagerly waiting for its release in the app store. And if you are wondering, it is said to be one of the best games of all time – well if you like that sort of thing anyway.

When the original game was released back in 1989, it boasted amazing animation, mind boggling puzzles and a rather addictive gameplay. The game was also rather hard, one wrong step and you’d either be severed in two, or killed in some other gruesome way.

What do you think of the “Prince of Persia” game? Are you waiting for it to be released on the iPhone?
