Hi Gypsy,
You have to press the shift key to draw the sword, but you have to pick it up first. You will find next to the skeleton in Level 1.
Hope this helps!

press ctrl q to exit the game
then type prince megahit to enable hack mode
Shift + L skips to the next level
shift + T gives you one extra life
Shif + W gives you the potion to float and fall without dying
Shift + I puts your screen upside down (and reverts it in case you take the potion that inverts the screen

Is it possible to get the Apple 2 version of the game on the site as well?

The Apple 2 link automatically gives the DOS version - and while that may be the better version, I would have loved to test the original Apple 2 one.

Dave 2019-11-04

Awesome, thanks for sharing! Some trivia: Whilst this is the original version of PoP, the PC version was actually published a year after the original release - which was on the Apple II in 1989 (

Got a problem on level 8. As soon as i step into the new screen to fight the guard he kills me before I have time to draw my sword. Anyone have same issue and fins a way around it? Love the game but never completed it as a kid. I really want to do it but I'm stuck. HELP!

Andrew X 2019-04-04

Absolutely trash. I cant believe I ever enjoyed this game as a kid. Its easier to fly an airplane without wings that traverse this travesty

Emma keane 2019-03-10

It's not working can u please help thanks how is the game I never played it

Ardon 2018-12-31

I am tellin' ya, it's hella hard

LordHaagen 2018-12-26

This IS the O.G. PoP. There's people that probably played some of the ports or edits first, especially those people that remember fighting a skeleton on the first level (even more if it's the skeleton close to the sword). I played it back in the 90's with my father's old 386 PC...great times!

PoP Runner 2018-09-18

To people saying its not the right PoP: Yes it is, you remember the shareware/demo
To people saying controlls stuck: Turn off "ease of acces - 5 shift presses" thing

Mi papá trajo este juego cuando iba a ser mi graduación de la primaria, más tarde en la secundaria lo volví a jugar cuando tuve mi primera novia, en las vacaciones mi padre y yo tratamos de terminarlo y así lo hicimos…

When i have to fight the controls get stuck

Jellybean 2017-03-12

Love this game. It was the 1st one my dad had on our 1st computer in the early 90's! Sure was state of the art then. I can't tell you how many nights I snuck down to play this game until all hours and my eyeballs were popping out. I definitely won the game then but can't see how now LOL! This game is up before I can even begin to get to level 3! Which .... makes me need to ask where the trigger is for the door out of level 2! I can't seem to figure that one out. Glad this is out there. Thank y ou

Pelger 2016-11-21

this is not the true official prince of persia, I played through the first level and it's different, there are extra places and the stuff is not where it's supposed to be. it's like a hack.

Raul Atreides 2016-11-04

Sí que es el juego. Doy fe.
And you can take the sword by pressing "shift" when near. Also shift is used to stay hang in edges and to walk "slowly" to avoid get Shiskebabed or fell in a pit.

JRF 2016-09-02

How can i take the sword to fight????

gsg 2016-03-23
