PoP 1 NES Online on vNES (Java) Emulator: http://www.retrogames.cz/play_102-NES.php?emulator=java - This is an online NES emulator written as a java applet. And it can be a little slow, if you have some strange browser, slow computer or an old version of Java. Java is real performance eater, as it is both compiled and interpreted labgage and its interpreter is a real hog in terms of resources. To speed up the game: If you scroll up/down so much that some parts of the image can't be seen, it's faster. And if you turn the music off it will work faster. OR simply: use a downloadable emulator+game.

Note 1: To pick stuff up, press the Down Arrow button. Note 2: This the only PoP1 version where the screen moves with the prince. It does this too in PoP2 SNES version.

PoP NES 2 hidden levels

Taken from this topic: http://popuw.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1468

NES version contains two small hidden levels:

Hidden level #1 (code 44158128):
Prince of Persia NES

Hidden level #2 (code 42087225):
Prince of Persia NES

(david:) I think they're only garbage. I can't move the prince after I load them. (amdf:) In first level you can move right but not left.

How to get there?

(amdf:) I have counted codes. In NES version if you have one level code, you can get another codes by adding 1001 to the code.

For example:

If I have 2nd level code 73232535 than I can get another codes:

73233536 - 6 level
73234537 - 10 level
73235538 - 14 level
73236539 - again 2 level

Some of counted codes provide access to hidden levels.
