    I have so much nostalgic love for POP2. I thought it was absolutely fantastic back in the day. All those different settings! It felt much more epic than the dungeons of the first game to me when I was a kid.

    But playing it now, I can see how flawed it really is (and how well-made the first one is!). It’s a shame, because I think some of the scenes of POP2 are really cool and memorable (like the jumping onto the ship as it sails away, or jumping onto the horse statue like you mentioned).

    No, I think I only got half of that 😮 But tbh the hitpoints aren’t really that useful. It’s better to be careful and learn how to fight properly, haha 😀

    Great tips, guys!

    If the game remains difficult, there’s one last trick you can resort to: cheating 😀

    By launching the game with the “megahit” argument (so “prince.exe megahit” on the command-line, or simply “prince megahit”) you unlock the cheat-mode. When enabled, you can use the following commands to perform various cheats:

    k – kill an enemy
    r – resurrect from death
    + – increase time left
    shift+L – next level
    shift+T – extra life
    shift+S – heal life
    shift+W – enable float mode (allowing you to survive long drops)
    n – look down
    u – look up
    h – look left
    j – look right

    Hey hey, I’m back from holidays and dove straight into the game.

    I just beat it, with 11 minutes and 23 seconds to spare \o/

    All the way through, I was convinced I had never beaten it before. But every single level was familiar, up to the very end, so I guess I have beaten it? Haha. Maybe I used the megahit cheat code before, but this time it was an honest run from start to finish (apart from some save scumming, which I feel is allowed).

    Truly awesome game, this. And incredibly influential of course!

    Good find! I suppose when Tyrian came out, the magazines were mostly covering AAA games.

    It’s funny to see the difference between what got attention back then and what is considered a classic now.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Cool, David! We’d love to have you on. We’ll try to do it on the weekend this time, so you don’t have to use the noisy booth at work then 🙂

    Oh yeah, I’d love to try to setup a multiplayer session. I’ll make a separate thread for it.

    Hey, I beat it! \o/

    89 races in total, that’s not as bad as I thought actually.

    Yeah, I’m finding the same thing. I think I dabbled too long in the easy races at first and now the guys in the top have an enormous lead. I’m catching up (I’ve got the top car and it’s almost fully upgraded), but it’s taking forever 😀

    I’ve got myself an almost fully upgraded Porsch- erm… Wraith now. I think I’m getting quite close to the end!

    Spent quite a bit more than Richard’s 4 hours though, haha.
