Prince of Persia is the first game I played on a PC. It was a memorable experience, which I occasionally relive via either DOSBox or an old computer.
I played through the entire Prince of Persia for IBM PC (running in MSDOS 6.00). I saved the princess in just under 40 minutes.
I think playthroughs should feel as if you were sitting next to a friend who was playing the game. You can hear the computer fans, the keyboard noise.
Here is my computer setup:
- 486 laptop with external keyboard
- MSDOS 6.00
- 14" CRT monitor
- sound through internal speaker
