The famous Prince of Persia game has been ported to the BBC Micro computer. The British Broadcasting Corporation Microcomputer System, or BBC Micro, is a series of microcomputers release in 1981 and built by the Acorn Computer company for the BBC Computer Literacy Project, operated by the British Broadcasting Corporation. Designed with an emphasis on education, it was notable for its ruggedness, expandability, and the quality of its operating system. In ancient times Iran was known as Persia, but it was never an easy place to rule. No sooner than the Sultan is off fighting for his country then the dastardly Grand Vizier proclaims himself ruler. To give some kind of legality to his reign he plans to marry the Sultan’s beautiful daughter. This is bad news for you, not only because you love the princess, because also the Vizier is the sort of guy who believes all’s fair in love, war and pretty much anything else he wants to win in. So you’ve been thrown in prison and the princess given an hour to agree to marriage. The Princess is imprisoned in a tower and can only be reached by battling through the dungeons, main palace and the tower itself. The further you progress, the more skilful the guards become.
