If you know me, you know i'm a gamer. I loves my PC games, always have. One game that i've enjoyed since it's first incarnation is PRINCE OF PERSIA.

The latest one, The Two Princes, pushes forward gaming as an art medium-- but the final boss, sheesh, i've never had such trouble with a boss ever.

Maybe i should remember that back in the day, when the original game was first released - (back when a single programmer could rotoscope his brother running into a full game from his bedroom), i could never in my wildest dreams actually make it to the final boss. Anyhow, for your downloading pleasure, here is the seminole original, The Prince of Persia, circa 1990.

    I have POP for my SNES! It's sweet, and the sword fight with the final boss is awesome as you kling, klang, kling, klang for like, 20 minutes. It's a long fight, and rewarding because the stabs are few and far between.
