A refreshingly smart and elegant adventure – Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame hits iOS and Android at the end of the month
The prince is dead, long live the prince! If you like jumping around ledges and high edifices, fending waves of enemies with a cold weapon and an oriental atmosphere, then you are in for a treat! The Prince of Persia saga dates way back to the MS-DOS era, created by a little company named Broderbund. Since then a lot of water has flown under the bridge, Broderbund are now a part of Ubisoft and the latter has decided to revamp the series by putting several games with the Persian prince. Now it's the mobile gamers' turn to rejoice, as The Shadow and the Flame is a remake of the 1993 Prince of Persia game, and will be available on iOS and Android.

As it seems, the graphics are amazing. Even though The Shadow and the Flame is a 2D platformer, 3D graphics have been brought to the game, while new special effects have been implemented as well. Combat is fast-paced and players can perform different set of combos, and to sweeten the deal, Ubisoft has added numerous new weapons to be used against the Prince's foes.

But we are not done yet. Mobile gamers will be able to unlock various achievements throughout the game and brag about them in different leaderboards. Let's not stop there: the controls have been tweaked as well - the Prince can be moved around either via virtual joystick, or via gesture-based controls.

Mark July 25th on your calendar - Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame rolls out on the App Store, Google Play and Amazon on that date and the price will be $2.99 (£1.99). Hopefully, this one will be a true winner.

the original was one of the best games ever made, but you're probably too young to know ;-)

Android and IOS use OpenGl API, which WP do not use so they have to code the game again but for WP. Correct me if I am wrong by the way because I just read it somewhere.

Amusingly the protagonist of the original PoP wasn't a Prince in the first place... but that didn't stop the game from being one of the best of all time!
