Amidst the scorched sands of ancient Persia, there is a legend spun in an ancient tongue. It speaks of a time borne by blood and ruled by deceit.
It is within this war torn land that a young Prince discovers a magic dagger. Drawn to its dark powers, he is led to unleash a deadly evil upon the reaches of his father
Insert a controller into port four. Start a new game and stay on the balcony. Hold B on controller four, then quickly press A, B, Y, X, Y, A, B, X on controller one. You will then enter the first level of the original Prince Of Persia, redone in 3D. Note: There is no end to the level. Once you get your sword and see a picture of the developers, that is all there is. Do not think that you are stuck; they just did not have time to finish it.
After getting the second sword that can break walls (approximately one third of the way through the game after the "Above the Bath's" area), you will reach a large location where you must pass through a door with Farah and activate a lever to open another door to a hallway filled with scarabs. There are three positions to this switch (open door into room, open door to hallway with scarabs, and open secret door to the classic Prince Of Persia). The switch is located at the end of the room, near the save point and near a large piece of rubble. There is a wall opposite to that lever that appears to be unbreakable, and does not look like other wall areas that can be manipulated. When you hit this secret area on the wall, it will not spark as expected. After setting the switch to unlock the door to the mini-game, keep hitting the non-sparking section of wall until it breaks. A message will appear to state that the classic Prince Of Persia has now been unlocked.
When you enter this level, there will be a short intermission sequence showing you the area. When this is completed, do not draw your sword. Instead, run to the edge of the stairs and jump off. Walk into the middle and wait for all of the enemies to appear. Use the Mega-Freeze to attack the current enemies. This will also work for the enemies that respawn, if done correctly.
After earning yourself the second sword which can break the walls, gain access to the secret corridor. Stop halfway through the corridor and on the right wall should be a wall with a crack that someone has hastily concealed. Break the wall to find another Magic Fountain.
After completing the trap corridor where you had to race to the slowly closing door, you will battle some Sand Monsters in the courtyard. After this has been successfully done, climb up the courtyard. When you are in the section where you have to climb up the ladder which appears above the spikes, continue until you find a Sand Cloud. Near the sand cloud is a hole in the wall. Climb up the rubble and run among the wall to grab on the ledge. Go through the hole to find yourself in a mystery area. Keep walking on the bridges until you reach a fountain. Drinking from this fountain will raise your life bar.
When the Prince and Farah attempt to cross the drawbridge you have lowered, many sand creatures will appear to battle you. Just run past them on the left and into the open doorway with the switch inside. They will not follow, and you wll not have to fight them.
Near the end of the game, you are in a tomb with infinite doors. You have to find the correct series of doors to progress. Go to the landscape view. Always start at the door with the face above it and go clockwise. The order is:
When you are swinging on the ropes (by holding R) and you are at the end of a swing and close to the object that you want to swing to, press A, then release R. When you hit the rope, press A. Note: You should make it most of the time.
There is a way to kill blue colored monsters in two moves ( works for both blue and red). Do an off the wall stab (press Jump + TowardsWall + Attack). The monster will get knocked over, and you can do a retrieve to destroy it.
Once you have about 98% of the game completed and are prepared to have a showdown with the evil Vizier, the best way to kill him is with counter strikes. Defend against the clone with R. Unlike his underlings, he cannot figure out a way past your sword. As soon as he strikes at you, press B to counter with your sword. You can also use your dagger, but it is much less effective due to the fact you cannot freeze him. If desired, you can hit him by jumping over and slicing with your sword, but this may not work and is slower.
Kill all of the first eight soldiers. Take their Sands except for the last one. Leave him on the floor. While he is down, run to the fountain and drink to get your health up. He will come back to life. Kill him again and drink more water before taking his Sand. Do this until you have full health, then take his Sand. You should now have enough health do defeat the next seven soldiers without dying.
Use the dagger to stab the enemy so that he becomes frozen. Then, hit him once with your sword so that he floats in the air. When he lands, he will be lying on the ground. Stab him with the dagger to take his sand.
When near Princess Farah, switch to first person view and look at her for a long time. At the beginning of the game, she will soon tell you to stop staring at her. Later in the game, she will tell you that your eyes are green and you can look at her if you want.
