Prince of Persia - DOS - USA.jpg
Platform: DOS

Developer: Brøderbund Software, Inc.
This page is for DOS release of Prince of Persia '1989. For other games in the series see Prince of Persia.

Prince of Persia is one of the most famous DOS action-adventure games.

The story of this takes place in Persia somewhen in the Middle Ages. The old sultan had a daughter, which were beautiful for the sultan's grand vizier, Jaffar. But the princess loved only one man - nameless Prince, who is the main game character. One day Jaffar captured the throne with his magic. The Prince was imprisoned in the dungeons, and Jaffar put the princess for a choice - to marry him, or to die. And gave her only one real hour to choose. One hour - it's the time you had to unchain yourself to run off the jail and save her. Or game will be over.

Victor Pelevin even write a book "Принц Госплана" ("Prince of Central Planning"), inspired by this game. Very rare example of the really great novel inspired by the game.
