Want a fresh take on side-scrolling desert action? Ubisoft has announced the rebirth of a classic platformer: Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame is heading to mobile platforms later this month.
It's been twenty years since we first dropped in on this storyline: The Shadow and the Flame follows on from the events of the classic Prince of Persia. That means you're back in the shoes of the wanderer who was born a Prince - on an epic quest to redefine his future.
Now though, in a new-look game built specifically for Android and iOS, we're given a visually-stunning 3D experience complete with intuitive, touch-screen controls. Prefer a virtual joystick? That's your choice - gesture-based controls are also available.
Whichever you choose, you're in for a treat - packed with multiple enemies, tactical challenges and some all-new combos to experiment with.
...plus, of course: Achievements, leaderboards and Facebook integration, for the more social competitive gamer.
Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame is due out on iOS and Android from July 22nd, check your local app stores for details.
I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
