    Prince of Persia Classic is an excellent iOS adaptation of one of the greatest videogame classics. Both if you are a fan of the original title or a newcomer to videogames this is a must-have for your iPhone.

    A stellar update of an esteemed platform classic, the Prince's latest handheld trip is one that is well worth rediscovering - or discovering for the first time if you're lucky enough to still be considered a youngster.

    A handful of tiny adjustments have made their way in, but it's ultimately still the same game we all remember fondly.

    A brilliantly conceived slice of history in a more palatable form than its Retro brother. [Apr 2012, p.93]

    Challenging and methodical, Prince of Persia's gameplay feels well-suited to the restrictions of the iPhone, but could use more refinements to make it a true diamond in the rough.

    It's a good way to have a revamped version of a classic game in your pocket: however, graphics aren't all that good and control issues are pretty annoying.

    While a fantastic game in its own right, the iPhone port lacks the tight controls that made this such a joy to play on consoles, making this a frustrating experience.
