Game description

He's back! The evil Jaffar assumes your identity, steals your beloved Princess, and casts you out of the palace as a beggar. As you flee across rooftops with palace guards in relentless pursuit, you know not who your real enemy is, or how to defeat him, but sense that what lies ahead will be your greatest adventure yet.
