Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

This is a Prince of Persia CD Collection as it has been sold in Germany (Europe, to be clear).
The edition available at this page comes with German PDF manual only (although the manual has been included in very poor print quality, so it’s nearly useless). This CD includes Prince of Persia 1 + 2 in English for both PC and Mac.

A note about the downloads available from above:

  1. file is a CD image of the original CD-ROM for PC & Mac
  2. file is a stripped-down Mac-only partition of the CD-ROM, for use in Mini vMac
  3. Note about 2nd download: This is a Disk Copy 6 image, zipped on OS X for now.
    To use the color version of PoP 1, Mini vMac II is needed obviously.
    As noted in the comments below, PoP 1 runs fine in Mini vMac with b/w graphics.

  4. The "manual" download is a scan of the folded paper sleeve the CD has been shipped within.

Hint for Prince of Persia 2:
Prince of Persia 2 needs to be copied to the hard disk drive before playing.

About Acrobat Reader included on CD (PC only):
PC partition comes with Acrobat Reader for Windows (version 3.01, 16-bit and 32-bit, German)
and version 1.0 for DOS (English).

Hint about installing Acrobat Reader for DOS:
To install Acrobat Reader for DOS from this CD-ROM:

  1. Copy the file ACRODOS.EXE to the hard disk drive
  2. To extract the ACRODOS.EXE file, run it from there
  3. Run the extracted "INSTALL.EXE" to install Acrobat Reader for DOS finally.

Pop-1 works with MiniVMac b/w as expected.
Whether monochrome is desirable for the game, I can´t tell. Wink
PoP-2 quits by various errors, lack of RAM, illegal instruction - no surprise either.

Nice, thanks for the 2nd d/l file.

Would it run in b&W in standard Mini vMac, tho´?

Thanks for this rare finding from Pearl!
I added the Mac part of the PoP CD as second DL for MiniVMac as DiskCopy 6 image zip due to a topic over at Emaculation. Useless in regards of preservation, but helpful for MiniVMac users, hopefully.
The ZIP is from OSX for now. To use the color version of PoP in MiniVMac, MiniVMacII emulating a MacII is needed obviously.

Very pleased to read the comment by "the" G4 User.

Plus, this is a very useful upload because of the PC versions and the Acrobat versions stored on it.

This is a collection that has been published in 1999 by a 3rd-party publisher.

It is very unusual that the Mac version is included with such a release.
