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

    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.

    Prince of Persia Classic is a game that has stood the test of time thanks to the fantastic upgrade to the graphics and a thoughtful control layout. If you've never played the original, you owe it to yourself and to gaming history to check this out.

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

    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.

    If you must have it portable, it's not the worst choice But if you just love the game, there are fine versions of it on XBLA and PSN that are simply easier to maneuver.

    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.
