The Original Sequel to Prince of Persia Returns After A 20-Year Break

We heard a few months back that the 1993 platformer Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame, sequel to the very first PoP game from '89, would get a mobile remake. That remake is out now.


Apart from getting a massive visual upgrade (graphics technology-wise, at least), the now fully-3D Shadow and the Flame sports a new combat system with unlockable combos and weapon pickups, while still maintaining the original storyline of the 1993 game. It may not feel like the original, but it still might be worth a look if you're a Prince of Persia fan.

That's fantastic.

Lemme tell you Prince of Persia Shadow of the Flame was leaps and bounds ahead of Prince of Persia 1 imo.

Even today it remains something of a retro classic.

I'll always remember the rush of the difficulty of jumping onto the boat at the end of level 1. Just a taste of what difficulty you were getting yourself into. (remember the bridge sequence or jumping onto Pegasus?)
