Only a few days following the release of the movie, Gameloft’s Prince of Persia: Warrior Within [$9.99] has made its way to the App Store. They’re promising a “console-quality" game that pushes the limits of the iPhone throughout a dozen chapters filled with enemies, traps, and everything else you’d expect from a Prince of Persia game. We’re going to be putting the game through its paces and plan on posting a full review soon.
If Prince of Persia’s switch to 3D isn’t your cup of tea, last week Ubisoft released Prince of Persia Retro [99¢] which short of mediocre controls is a shockingly faithful reproduction of the original game. Stay tuned for our Prince of Persia: Warrior Within review, and really, give some thought to picking up Prince of Persia Retro if for no reason other than to see where the whole series started.
Update: It seems as if the game has been removed from the App Store. Per Gameloft’s Twitter: “There is a little menu problem on Prince of Persia. The game will be removed from the App Store & we’ll let you know as soon as it’s fixed"
