How to play Prince of Persia?

The hero of the game, the so-called Prince, stumbles into a small canyon in the middle of an uncharted desert. There, he meets Princess Elika, apparently the Number One Worshipper of Ormazd, and therefore a big antagonist of Ahriman. During the game’s tutorial scenes, check the on-screen prompts. The Prince should follow Elika through the canyon. Now is as good a time as any to become familiar with the various moves, such as wall running, wall jumping, and grip falling. For the combat, the heroes win if they reduce the enemies’ life to zero.

Eventually, the heroes will reach the hub-like desert area, where a big ancient temple stands. The Prince should follow Elika across the sands to the temple. Climb up the wall via the ledges, turn the crank once by 90 degrees to open the temple’s main gate, drop back down along the same wall with the ledges, and enter the long hallway. At the other end of this long hallway, hang together onto the wall ring switch to open the door to the Tree of Life’s chamber.

Approach the Tree of Life. Fight the bad guy in black, and then fight the minor demon bad guy, learning about Elika’s team attacks in the process. Afterward, escape from the temple by backing out. Jump across the pits in the ground, and wall run where needed. Go up the ramps to the door on the high platform, beat off a second minor bad guy, and then use the wall ring switch to open the door again. Back in the long hallway, which is also crumbling apart, wall run and wall jump to skip over the collapsing sections. As the Prince approaches the main gate, he will need to jump and then perform a cooperative jump, where Elika boosts him forward.
