Prince of persia sega genesis version differences??

Post by salvadorc17 » August 1st, 2016, 10:25 pm

The sega version has not been discussed so much in the forums, seems it have some similarities with prince snes, but also some other with Mac. Do you know something about this version?

Since the topic title is about differences...
The European (MegaDrive) version has some new levels: http://www.vgmaps.com/Atlas/Genesis/ind ... ceOfPersia
Levels 6, 7, 12 and 15 are new.

The Sega Genesis is officially back in production:

It ships with 22 games; not Prince of Persia though.

16-bit? I thought it was 32-bit because it uses an m68k CPU. (Like the Macintosh and the Amiga.)

Quoting from Wikipedia:
"The decision to use a Motorola 68000 as the system's main CPU was made late in development, while a Zilog Z80 was used as a secondary CPU to handle the sound due to fears that the load to the main CPU would be too great if it handled both the visuals and the audio. [...] In order to extend the life of the Genesis, Sega released two add-ons to increase its capabilities: a CD-based peripheral known as the Sega CD (Mega-CD outside North America), and a 32-bit peripheral known as the Sega 32X."

16-bit:

8-bit:

32-bit (RISC chip):

Just have discovered that Sega CD version is different from the Genesis ones, also it does include big size music files.

Here is some video gameplay.
