- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
This is the NES version of the first game in the popular Prince of Persia series. The hero must escape out of the palace dungeons in order to defeat Jaffar and save the princess from certain death.

Challenger saved 10.13 seconds over the previous run via better movement, some faster fights, and a trick that allows the hero to start moving more quickly after obtaining the sword. The detailed list of improvements is in the submission notes.

We also have runs of the SNES, Genesis, Sega CD, and TurboGrafx-CD ports, as well as a run that just completes the SNES training levels.

Watch this run being played back on a real console.
