Prince of Persia, can be played on the phone directly from the browser

If you missed Prince of Persia, the original 1989 game developed by Jordan Mechner, find out that you can now run it directly on your phone and don’t even have to install it. All you have to do is access a link in a browser. Once considered one of the most advanced video games of the moment, offering some of the most fluid animation of the late ’80s, Prince of Persia can now be as easy to run as a website.

Original Prince of Persia, available in web browser

PrinceJS is a project developed by software developer Oliver Klemenz, which ported the entire original Jordan Mechner code written for the Apple II in the 1980s so that it could be run in the browser via JavaScript. He also developed a new control scheme, which puts all the necessary actions on different areas of the screen. Pressing at the far end of the screen causes the character to run away, while a push toward the center causes him to walk slowly. Of course, you have jumps in various directions, but also the buttons for climbing or fighting. Of course, it takes a little time to adjust, especially if you’re used to playing Prince of Persia on a keyboard.

The game can be accessed from the link and a few settings are recommended to make it look as good as possible. First, a single open tab should be used, then the phone should be in landscape mode, while the address bar should be off in landscape mode. Of course, those who want a completely fullscreen experience, can make a shortcut in the phone menu, which will open this direct link.

Those who think Prince of Persia is too heavy also have a separate link, which starts the game with half difficulty: .

The full code of this project is available for those who want to study it, on GitHub. The game runs on both Android and iOS phones, in Chrome or Safari.
