Prince of Persia (Ubisoft/800 Points)

The Grand Vizier Jaffar has thrown a young prince into the dungeon. Jaffar has forced the prince’s beloved to choose between marrying Jaffar or death. Take on the role of the prince and try to escape from the dungeon. Beware of obstacles such as unpredictable floors and ceilings, hidden spikes and walls of flames. Pass through invisible doors and walk through portals. Find bottles of magic potions, but partake of them wisely – they could increase your life or, just as easily, they might poison you. Survive all of the perilous levels, rescue the princess from the evil Jaffar and claim the royal residence before the hourglass is empty.
