Hmm. I've taken several stabs at this blurb now, but nothing quite feels right. Too much talk, too little... you know what? I'm just gonna throw it to you.

Five-Minute Prince of Persia.

Mind the spikes.

Why no "Narrator:" speaker tags for comments that actually interact with the characters? I thought we only did the italic "Captain's Log" thing for things that the characters don't actually hear.

No "Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives" joke? Really?

May I recommend Yahtzee's reviews of the series?

ARRRRGH! It hurts! It hurts!

Great fiver, Zeke. I don't think I ever finished that game either. I had a friend who cheated and I remember watching the ending on his computer, but I don't think I ever did. I remember liking the fluidity of the motion, but yeah, the controls took some getting used to.

Thrust parry thrust.
