Things were good back in '89. Madonna's Like a Prayer was the song of the year, Michael Keaton took Batman to a whole new level, and Price of Persia was the the gamers' game. Hard to believe that was 23 years ago.

While Madonna has seemingly fallen of the face of the earth over the past few years, Batman received new life with Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy, and, now, Ubisoft has resurrected Prince of Persia for mobile devices. And they made it better.

Jake? Is that you?

It's basically the same game that many of you probably remember from your childhood, but Ubisoft has refreshed the graphics to be more cutting edge. Aside from the throwback gameplay, it also offers a few different game modes: Normal, where you'll learn the basics and get used to playing the game; Time Attack, where you race against the sands of time and must complete the game in one hour or less; and Survival mode, where you have less than an hour to beat the game without dying.

Good luck with that.

      Funny, it shows as compatible with my GNex. Not sure why it isn't for you.

        I've got a toro (Verizon) gNex running cm10 nightles. There are a lot of variables there, so I'm not going to sweat it. I snagged it on the wife's Nexus7, though, so I'll play through it in the rare occasions I can get it away from her. :)

    Anyone know if this has in app purchases? I'm getting tired of devs not being upfront regarding IAP in a paid game.

    • Himmat Singh

      None by the looks of it. Which is good. I've been playing for a while now. It's a bit slow, hopefully it picks up in pace later.

    Says NOT compatible with my GNex but IS with my old DX?

    i just hate this kind of permissions... why does does a game need alll of this????

    • Cheeseball

      None of the needed permissions are instrusive and/or share private data.

        Your phone number and list of accounts known by the phone might be considered private data to some...

          that is my point friend

  • e-lu

    Anyone know if it has game controller support? I remember this game being a real pain in the neck back in the day and I doubt I'd get into it with klugey on-screen controls.

    • Sootie

      It was originally designed for a keyboard man just the arrow keys and space from memory I dont think that would be too hard on a touch screen

  • Abe Lincoln

    $3 for a game that's main challenge is to beat it in less then 60 minutes? I was totally gonna buy it for the nostalgia alone but now I think I'll just wait till it goes on sale...

    I remember falling to my death a lot in that game and thus not being willing to play it anymore. Don't think I'll spend $3.13 to relive that, I can just play the old one emulated xD

  • Jotamide

    Too bad it's not available for the Xperia Play anymore... :(
