POP2 Genesis (Sega Mega Drive)

Megadrive port of Prince of Persia 2, sequel of one of the greatest games ever. In a quick comparison, this port is worse than the SNES one (sadly). This game was canned for unknown reasons.
The game works just fine with Gens32. Graphics are a bit disappointment, as they are inspired by SNES version in many aspects. But this game DOES have a final level. Big plus for that. It just misses two or three cutscenes. And the music isn't as bad as it was in SNES version. And it definitely has less bugs then the SNES version (according to the SNES runthrough video). So don't mind the BETA word at all. Although incomplete, this game beats the SNES one and uses as much potential Genesis could possibly offer. :)
This is an unofficial release of prince of Persia 2 : The Shadow and the Flame. This is really a Genesis version (but a prototype one). It was never officially released and sold. It is available now for free download on hidden-palace.org. There is no a "full version" because on the web site says that "this game was canned for unknown reasons".

Here are the remaining "Prince of Persia 2" Megadrive version maps collection, so that is one Prince 2 map set ticked off.
Unfortunately level 9 is unfinished and incomplete due to inaccessibility caused by snake and gate blockages which are entirely impossible.
