I plan on eventually getting OoTW for Genesis so I can compare the Genesis and Sega CD versions. As for Prince of Persia, I might get it if I come across it for the NES.


there's also a GBA port, released as a freeware ROM.

A great game! There is the PC version ported over to Dreamcast as well.

The Hi-res version was remade by the original creator. When he bought the rights to the game he remade it and is now selling it.

I'm pretty sure he also did the GBA port. Right?

Its on GOG. I need to actually beat Another World, I always gave up since it was so hard. I did finally beat Prince of Persia though. Took 15 years I think.

I love Heart of Darkness PS1its very expensive though

Lost in Shadow wii coming out next year seems like something you would like also.

Lester the Unlikely- SNES not a very good game but is also rotoscoped and plays similiar to Prince of persia and Flashback.
Image
Weird Dreams - Amiga not as fluid as some of the others mentioned
Image
Limbo on Xbox live arcade is pretty good

Thats all that I can think of that haven't been mentioned if there are more I am curious as I love cinematic platformers, they are like adventure games mixed with traditional platformers.

I'm almost certain that he gave permission to FoxySofts to make a port.

*sheds a tear*

I'd completely forgotten about this....

so many nights.... so many....

thank you.

:edit

and in the spirit of Project Firestart (or the other way around) :

Nexus I and II (also Commodore 64)

and the most important ones:

Impossible Mission

here you have:

Impossible Mission 1+2 (C64)
Impossible Mission 2025 (Amiga)
Impossible Mission DS (Nintendo DS)

I'd say go with the DS version, if possible, as it contains the original Impossible Mission, with or without updated graphics, as well as a new Impossible Mission

Impossible Mission 1 and 2 are the true roots of the genre (AFAIK)

:edit 2

nevermind, they were the precursor of the genre
C-64 will never die

The GBA "version" of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a 2d platformer which is a bit reminiscent of the original PoP. It is a bit more action-oriented but it is a quality game from what I played so far, and worth checking out for fans of this kind of game.

the GBC version of Prince of Persia is far better than the GBA. :)

But that is because the GBC is the original PoP :) It is probably not unique or sufficiently different version to justify playing PoP again on GBC (when there are arguably superior versions available on larger screens).

The GBA game I mention is, as far as I know, the only version of the "Sands of Time" 2d Platformer (barring mobile phones, to which apparently there were ports of the GBA game). The other Sands of Time games are 3D versions.

You like GBA games, try this one. I'm having fun with it.
