It's Retro Gaming Time with Prince of Persia

Ubisoft has announced it, and the App Store has released for your gaming  pleasure this serious old school classic. Originally predicted by Touch  Arcade, at long last it has arrived. In Prince of Persia Retro (iTunes link), you have  one hour to defeat the evil vizier Jaffar (are all bad cartoon viziers  named that?) and rescue the Princess. Along the way there'll be deadly  swordsmen to defeat, mazes to unravel, chasms with spiked bottoms to  leap across and more dangers.Image Source: Touch ArcadeOriginally played on the  Apple II back  in 1989, this game will delight older fans who remember it  well. Newer gamers might laugh at the simplistic screens and animation,  and gamers with fatter fingers, we hear, might find the virtual controls  causing some unforced errors. But a classic game that's  universal across the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad platforms for only  $0.99 and no haggling in the marketplace? You'll wonder where Memorial  Day weekend went when you're through with this one.
