Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is a fan-made game, created to deliver another side to the Prince’s story. The game features 2D graphics and is built using Flash, which means that the graphics are limitedly decent.
It’s fast, and it gets faster
As a Flash game, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands will be at most a casually good thing to play. It’s created with a speedrun mechanic, meaning that the Prince will constantly run to the right side of the screen, and you have to make sure that he doesn’t get killed.
Death can occur in a number of ways and in a lot of time, you won’t see it coming. The prince can end up impaled on some steel spikes, cut to pieces, shot down, and he can also fall to his doom from somewhere high up. The only thing you can do to prevent that is to jump, climb, attack and use the sands to reverse time by a bit in case you get in trouble.
As the level progresses, the running speed of the Prince increases and since things come a lot faster towards you, it will be harder to avoid the traps.
It’s fun at first, but then the bugs kick in
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands feels like a nice and rather fun game to play if you’re into 2D games. It has OK graphics, a nice and challenging gameplay and the action happens very fast. To a certain point, the game is enjoyable. But to a certain point.
Sometimes, he won’t jump, or he’ll jump too late. Other times, he’ll just die out of the blue, and when you restart the level, he will not obey any of your keyboard commands.
It can be good if you have the patience for it
To end, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is a game worth playing if you really don’t have anything better to do or to play. It’s OK as far as Flash games go but the lack of responsiveness to the keyboard commands can’t be forgiven.
