GAME INFO IIGI ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Only you can save the Sultan's daughter from Jaffar and free the land from his reign of tyranny. You will have to escape from prison and find your way through the palace to save your beloved princess before the last sands in the hourglass run out. Many traps and guards await you in the dungeon. You must overcome these perils, fight your way up to the highest tower where the princess is being held captive and put an end to Jaffar's evil plan. -------- TIPS -------- The butterfly may help you find the way out. Timing and patience are virtues: they are your keys to surviving the slicers. You can jump onto walls to propel yourself and climb faster. Press backward on the left stick while jumping to perform a back flip. Crouch or roll to cross closing gates. Find loose tiles by the dust stirred up when you jump nearby. The dark prince cannot be defeated by ordinary means. Loose tiles fall when walked on or hit from below. The game description and tips are taken directly from in the game. =============================================================================== III. WALKTHROUGH IIIWT ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The target time at the end of each level in the walkthrough is just a time you should aim for to finish in less than 60 minutes. You may be well under some and over on others. The remaining time is there to give you an idea of where you should be at that point in the game. ********************************************************************* LEVEL 1 PRISON IIIA ********************************************************************* Drop off the first ledge to your right.
