Bring back old POP
I found this weak. New graphics are pretty but don't really add anything to the experience, in fact the characters are just the characters from sands of time, which seems lazy. They went to all the trouble of updating a game that didn't really need an update, but couldn't be troubled to design new characters for it. Game is almost exactly the same as the prince of Persia classic app that this replaced, just with newer graphics. Also, the movement pad is HORRIBLY designed and awkward to use; old direction arrows were much easier to use. I mostly wanted this because I used to play old POP back in 1992 and wanted it on my iPad for the sake of nostalgia, I am very sad to see that this is the only version of this game still available. This is a completely unnecessary attempt to update a game that was fine to begin with. Ubisoft should not have messed with perfection. If they people like this game then fine, but they should still make the classic POP app available. Again, too, the s---tiness of the directional movement pad really interfered with my enjoyment of this game; whatever else they do they need to rethink some design aspects.
This Game is Awesome!!!!
I normally don't write reviews but this game deserved my input.
First of all, for all the haters out there who think the controls are horrible, please settle down. If you had played the original game in the early 90's on a 386 PC, (486 if you were lucky), then you would be well aware of how easy it was to fall off ledges and walk too far from just pressing a keyboard key a hair too long. What I feel most people are missing in their comments about the controls, is just how true the developers of this game were in building the game to that old PC version I fell in love with. Honestly, after 10 minutes or so, the controls felt like second nature and often I could grab on a ledge while falling and not plummet to my death. I don't recall being able to do that on my PC.
I really enjoyed going through all the levels with the updated graphics. The quality of this game is top notch. I would encourage anyone on the fence to go ahead and dive into this game. Fortunately I picked the game up on sale for .99 cents but I would have been happy to pay up to $5 to relive that youthful experience now that I'm in my forties.
Buy the game! Have fun with it. I certainly did!!!!!!!
Keep the classic games coming to iPad!
Thanks for a really enjoyable gaming experience! It never ceases to amaze me how great these old games are in this format - iOS is the perfect medium to revive true classics! POP has to be one of the greatest PC classics ever, which is why I think a couple suggestions would be much appreciated by the gaming community:
1. As great as the new skin looks, I for one would love to be able to play this gem with the old-school graphics I grew up with, I love the new skin, but I'd like to see an option to play "retro" graphics as well!
2. Get POP 2 - the Shadow & the Flame to us a quickly as possible!!!
Fantastic Job :)
