c The SuCtan s (Betrayat! 

ersia: The empire of 
legends. The Sultan 
of Astrabad has been 
picked by Osman the 
First, founder of the Ottoman 
Empire, to lead an army against 
barbarian invaders to the north. 

In his absence, the Sultan has 
given rulership of Astrabad to 
Jaffar, the Grand Vizier, and entrusted him with the protection 
of his only daughter, the Princess. 

A young Prince, an adventurer from a neighboring city, has met 
the Sultan's daughter — and promptly fallen in love with her. 
Meanwhile, Jaffar has received news that the Persian army has 
been defeated. Believing the Sultan to be dead, Jaffar decides to 
become the new ruler of Astrabad by marrying the Princess. 

Jaffar has given the Princess one 
hour to prepare for her wedding, and 
has thrown the Prince in the palace 
dungeon where he is sure the young 
man will meet his doom. But the 
Vizier doesn't know how resourceful 
the Prince is. The Prince is 
determined to save the Princess from 
the fate Jaffar has in store for her by escaping from the dungeon. 

As the Prince of Persia, you must 
make your way through the many 
dangers of the dungeons below the 
palace to save the Princess from 
the evil Vizier. Traps of all kinds, 
spikes, bottomless pits, palace 
guards, are all there to stop you. 

And remember, you only have one 
hour to make it out. . .

Movement and ITighting 

In the dungeons of the Grand Vizier, making your way through 
the traps and hazards is the only way you can save the Princess! 
Here are a variety of techniques you'll have to perfect in order 
to make your way to freedom. 

Special IRgnning and Jumping 1 Techniques 

The Long Jump: When you 
want to jump across wide areas, 
get a running start by pressing 
and holding the D-Button. 

Then press Button B when you 
get about two steps away from 
the edge to make the leap. 

Wp ‘Turning (Back. 

Ledge Hanging: Press the D-Button and Button A 
or C when you're climbing up or down to hang 
onto whatever you're climbing on. If a ledge is 
too far away to reach even with the long jump, 
there is still a way to get across. Make a long jump, 
and as you reach the other side, press Buttons A and 
C at the same time to grab onto the opposite edge. 
Then pull yourself up by pressing the D-Button up 
or Button B. This is very useful when you find 
yourself about to fall on pointed 

LooTOut ‘BefozuT 


‘Tri c ky Joo t iny . 

Tiptoeing: Press the D-Button while pressing 
Button A or C to take short, careful steps. This 
method is used in a number of situations: 

• Use this method to step right to the edge of a drop. YouTl have 
a better chance of making it to the other side when you jump. 

• Running between spikes is an easy way to impale yourself. 
Tiptoe lightly to make your way through these traps. 

• Loose ceiling plates can' t be dislodged unless you're standing 
directly below them. Tiptoe forward to position yourself, then 
jump up. 

• Sometimes you're in a bad position to reach a ledge above you. 
Tiptoe until you're standing in the right position, then pull 
yourself up! 

• Also useful for the Jaws of Death. 

Su) ordfighting 

You will come across guards throughout the palace, and to reach 
the Princess, you're going to have to deal with them first. The 
basics of the swordfight are simple: when you come across a 
palace guard, you automatically draw your sword. Use the 
D-Button to edge yourself forward, and when you're in striking 
distance, press Button C or Button A to thrust. Parry your 
opponent's strike by pressing Button B. Pressing the D-Button 
down puts your scimitar away, but don't do that unless you have 
a really good reason. Once you've put your scimitar away, one 

blow from your opponent will 
end your adventure for good! 

‘Danger on ‘Two Sides . 


Into the (Dungeon! 

You've been thrown into the dungeon of the Palace Astrabad. 
As you already know, you only have one hour to find your way 
through this maze and save the Princess from the evil designs 
of Jaffar, the Grand Vizier. 

What you don't know is that Jaffar is not only an evil man, but 
a sorcerer as well. You must be careful of the many booby traps 
in the dungeon, and also beware of the evil magic and its effect on 
the dungeon. You will see supernatural creatures as well as more 
down-to-earth (though just as deadly) ones. 


1 1 

Scimitar: Near the beginning of the game, you 
will come across a scimitar, a curved sword 
used in ancient Persia. Look for this 
sword before doing anything else 
in the game. You will need this in 
order to get out of the dungeon. 







Potions: In Jaf far's dungeon, you will find three types 
of potions. The first kind is a healing potion. It will 
jjp restore one of your Life markers (shown at the bottom 
left of the screen). The second potion will take one Life 
marker away. Unfortunately, these two types are very similar 
in appearance, so be careful! 

The last type of potion (which is harder to find) has 
a longer neck than the other two types. This special 
potion adds an extra Marker to your total supply! 


Doors and Gates: Each floor of 
the dungeon has one entrance 
and one exit. However, there are 
many gates which bar your way. 
Gates and exits are opened (and 
often closed with a bang) by 
stepping on spring-loaded floor 
plates. Remembering where 
each kind of plate is located is 
essential to getting to the exit. 
Naturally, you can only use an 
entrance once. 

Floors and Ceilings: 

Keep in mind that many of 
the floor and ceiling plates 
are not solid. Standing on 
loose floor plates will 
dislodge them. Sometimes 
you will just fall down one 
level. Other times you will 
land squarely on a bed of spikes. Watch your footing. Ceiling 
plates can be knocked loose by jumping up when standing 
directly under them. Ceiling plates often lead to passageways or 
Life potions, but watch out when you knock one loose. Your 
turban isn't much protection against a granite slab falling on 
your head! 

"Is It Worth the < Kish? ,! 

the dangerous spots and plan how 

Obstacles: Hidden in the 
floors and ceilings of the 
dungeon are numerous booby 
traps set to go off as soon as 
you get too close. There are 
also perilous chasms to jump 
across and armed guards to 
fight. Although you have a 
time limit, it's wiser in the long 
run to take a little extra time at 
best to handle the situation.

If you press Start during play, the game is

Your options are as follows: 

Save: This saves the game at the floor you are currently on. 

If you're past a locked gate, the game will start from that point. 
Make sure to save the game at those points, so that you don't have 
to start from the entrance to that floor. Games are automatically 
saved under the name you're currently using.

Fastest: You can take a look at how 
fast you or other players have made 
it through the floors. 

Name Entry: Use this option when you want to change the name 
of the game you're saving. To save a game separately, enter a new 
name. Then press the D-Button down to a blank line on the Save 
screen, and press Start or Button A or C to put it into memory The 
line will then show the floor you're on, the current time, and the 
name of your saved game. 

Note: Entering your name is done the same way as on the Set Up 
screen. See Name Entry on page 3.

the slowest is 5. 

Speed Fight: Change the speed of the Prince's 
attack. The default setting is 4. The fastest speed 
is 1, the slowest is 5. 


Game End: If you decide to quit the game without saving it, 
select Game End and press Button A or C. The game will stop

Restart: This option lets you start again from the entrance to the

< Ifie 'Tate oftfie ‘Prince ... 

if the Prince is able to make his way through the floors and defeat 
his opponents, he will finally achieve his ultimate goal. But in the 
dark passage-ways of the palace, things aren't always so rosy. If 
he happens to fall victim to one of the hundreds of dangers 
awaiting him, wait a few moments and a message screen will 
appear, telling you to push any button, but Button B, to continue 

the game. After you press a 
button, the Prince will start his 
adventures again at the 
entrance of the same level he 
died on. Keep in mind, 
however, that the sands of the 
hourglass are still falling. In 
other words, you restart the 
game with only the amount of 
time that's left on the clock. 


Si Secret Message from the tPrincess 

At the beginning, just after the Prince had been thrown into the 
Palace dungeon, he sat down, wondering what to do next. He 
knew he had to find his way out of the prison to save the Princess 
from Jaffar's evil plans! He looked to his right and noticed a loose 
floor plate nearby. A way out? 

As he was walking over to try and pry the plate open, a white 
mouse carrying a piece of paper in its mouth came through a hole 
in the wall. The mouse dropped the paper at his feet and 
scrambled away. Intrigued, the Prince picked up the note and 
opened it. .. 

"Now is the time for courage, my Prince. I have been through 
the dungeon only once, but 1 can tell you some of the things 
to be careful of. First, beware of the swordsmen. They will try to 
force you backwards with their sword blows, onto spikes or 
through weak spots in the floors. Get as close to them as you 
can and use their strategy against them as you fight. 

"You must also remember that the floors and ceilings are not 
always sturdy. If you jump up and down, you will see the loose 
plates shake. There are secret passageways through some of these 
plates, while others are bottomless pits. Be careful when 

"Finally, I must tell you that Jaffar has said he has a special 
opponent waiting for you — one that he says you cannot fight 
against and win. If this is true, then all is lost. But I feel there is 
some trick in Jaffar's zvords . .. 

"I have faith that you zvill overcome these obstacles. 

Oh! Jaffar is coming! Please hurry, my Prince!"
