Control the Sands
Prince of Persia - The Forgotten Sands is a side-scrolling platforming game that puts you in control of the heroic Prince of the series as you navigate through a treacherous world filled with traps, puzzles and deadly enemies. At the outset of the game you join forces with a mysterious entity known as Helem, a firefly-like creature that circles ahead of you as you traverse the environment highlighting areas of interest. Helem also grants you the ability to manipulate time, allowing you to slow down the flow of sand in certain parts of a level in order to solidify it using the L and R buttons. Once solid, you can then use it like a pole to vault from.
You can also speed up time which in turn shoots the sand out of the ground and can be used to push enemies out of the way or elevate you to higher ground. The power of slowing down time is perfect for avoiding traps and slowing down enemies so you can quickly dispatch them. As you progress through each of the levels you'll collect elixirs, which in turn can be used to beef up your health bar or upgrade your attacks.
Combat in the game is simple: press the Square button to slash and the Circle button to perform a block while fighting or a dodge when moving. Well timed taps of the Square button are perfect for triggering a series of slick and hard-hitting combo attacks on incoming foes. Prince of Persia - The Forgotten Sands features a wealth of platforming challenges, hordes of ever increasingly difficult enemies and some truly terrifying boss battles for you to overcome, but one thing is for certain, you're guaranteed to have a huge amount of fun as you discover your new powers and realise a hero's destiny on PSP.
