2BGC Ep. 21 – Prince of Persia (1989)

This is a story of a brace young man who saves a princess through jumping. It’s not Mario, it’s not Crash, but rather the unnamed prince of Persia, or PP. There’s a few things that set this game apart from the rest though, including the beautifully fluid animations, the precision platforming, and the game’s arabesque setting. Prince of Persia looks life like and real in a way that games of this era just didn’t. Even in 2017 with high CPU load hair graphics engines Prince of Persia manages to evoke a sense of real motion.
