    Controls well, looks sharp (but I do wish you also got the refreshed Gameloft edition, too), and works on both the iPhone and iPad without needing to buy a second download. Go get it.

    My initial impressions of the game are positive so far, but like most games designed for physical controls then ported to the iPhone, I have found myself fat fingering some jumps and generally just making play mistakes because of the inherent inaccuracies of virtual controls.

    All and all, this is a great ride through memory lane and a must have for those of you who took the ride back in the day.

    The classic Prince of Persia has seen adaptions across many platforms, but this entry for the App Store could have been friendlier to newcomers.

    Prince of Persia Retro is far too difficult a game to suffer from loose controls.

    Renders a classic unplayable by virtue of horrendous controls.
