Despite a lack of bosses or a harder setting, this is a truely innovative look at the platforming genre. Having a comely sidekick doesn't hurt either, although most of the game is played with your prince by himself. Some puzzles are harder than others, and enemies get tougher as the story continues. The ancient dagger does little more than make the game easier as you just reverse time every time you make a mistake. This almost makes the game too easy. That, plus some troublesome camera control, keeps this from being a perfect game, but it is still a great one.
