A Familiar Hero, A New Threat

The story revolves around the capital of historical Persian Empire. The developers gave a fictional twist to the historical events of Ctesiphon. In the roguelike Prince of Persia, the prince is fighting Hun army. The Hun army are twisted by the influence of dark magic that is led by malevolent Nogai. The Hun armies are planning to take over the city and continue their terrorism. Hence, it is up to the prince to save the city.

“Lead the Prince in his fight against a Hun army corrupted by dark shamanic magic and find your place in the royal family as you explore a vibrant reinterpretation of Persia.”

Roguelike Reinvention: Embracing the Cycle of Death

The developers embraced the authentic roguelike genre in this game. Each level will be procedurally generated with permadeath. Each playthrough will be unique than the previous one. The enemy drop will also be procedurally generated so it makes it easier for you to grind. However, once you die you will lose your progress but you get to keep the Echoes. Echoes helps you to get permanent upgrades to make next playthroughs more efficient.

“Pieces of the puzzle together and discover new areas as you enter the fight again and again, meeting a cast of colorful characters through non-linear story progression.”

Combat Evolved: A Dance of Blades and Acrobatic Dodges

“Flow seamlessly between platforming and combat, using your acrobatic moves to outmaneuver and outsmart your enemies.”

The combat of this game is a perfect blend of agility and aggression. You need to use your acrobat moves to seamlessly navigate through treacherous areas. You can also use wall runs to avoid getting hit by enemies.

Of course, apart from fine weapons you also need to master the art of dodging and counter attack. Prince’s agility allows you to avoid traps and crowds of enemies.

“Choose from a variety of deadly weapons and equip new medallions each run to unleash devastating effects, giving you the freedom to change your fighting style as you wish. Secondary weapons offer even more options, from bows to shields to grappling hooks. Switch your loadout mid-run to adapt to new challenges.”

The game offers players with variety of weapons. Players can choose their own playstyle as there are both melee and range weapons. You can use swords to aggressively annihilate the enemies. At the same time volleys of arrows can help you to crowd control enemies. Swift daggers are perfect weapons for players who are into delivering precise strikes. In contrast, heavy axes are loved by the players who wants to do heavy damage.

Medallions: Power Up Your Arsenal

Players will stumble upon artifacts scattered around the city which are known as Medallions. These artifacts have many uses of them other than completion. The medallions can be used to enhance the existing weapons with elemental powers. The elemental powers will have passive damage towards.
