PRINCE OF PERSIA 2: THE SHADOW AND THE FLAME
Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame is a platform game released by Broderbund in 1993 as the sequel to 1989's Prince of Persia You can download this here too. Both games were designed by Jordan Mechner, but unlike the original, he did not program the sequel himself.
Similar to the first Prince of Persia, the character explores various deadly areas by running, jumping, crawling, avoiding traps, solving puzzles and drinking magic potions. Prince of Persia 2 is more combat-heavy than its predecessor.
|The Shadow and the Flame|
In the first game, enemies appear only occasionally and are always alone, while in the sequel, up to four enemies may appear at once, sometimes flanking the player, and may even be instantly replaced by reinforcements when they are killed.
As in Prince of Persia, the trick is to complete the game under a strict time limit from 75 minutes (which start after a certain point in game) that passes in real time. Lives are unlimited, but time cannot be regained (except by reverting to a previously saved game).
In other areas, more significant improvements have been made. The graphics are far more complex than the simple look of the game's predecessor, the areas explored are larger, and the variety of backdrops is greater.
