Prince Of Persia Original Source Code Available On GitHUB

Crazy Computer Science engineers may be delighted to know that the original source code of Prince of Persia game is now available on the GitHUB. Check it out: https://github.com/jmechner/Prince-of-Persia-Apple-II/blob/master/README.mkd . According to the creator of the game, Jordan Mechner; he found the code on a 22 year old 3.5" floppy drive and it took several days and nights to extract the code from it. He also says that though he's the owner of the copyrights of the game; he's no problem if anyone studies the code, modifies it and attempt to develop their own version of the game. You however cannot commercially sell the original code or modified version of it. To cut the long story short; it's meant for the study purpose.

You're welcome to discuss the code in this thread 😀 I'm quite sure it will be a great exercise.
