What is Prince of Persia?

Prince of Persia is an action-adventure and platforming video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. Prince of Persia revolves around gameplay mechanics that producer Ben Mattes identifies as "pillars" of the Prince of Persia series; an acrobatic hero exploring a Persian environment with a balanced mixture of acrobatics, combat, and puzzle-solving.


Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is PrinceOfPersia_Launcher.exe. The software installer includes 41 files and is usually about 7.9 MB (8,279,387 bytes).
