SDLPoP-Vita updated to v1.2, keyboard support added
At this point we can start saying with some confidence that the Vita scene is not only finally alive, it’s being extremely well supported by all developers involved in it. This time usineur returns with another update to his great Prince of Persia port for the PS Vita as an entry to the GekiHEN contest. The most notable addition to this update is without a doubt the save/load state feature. With this update, SDLPoP should be fully-feature and mostly bugless so you can enjoy the game in its entirety without hitches. You can now even enter your name into the Hall of Fame!
What is SDLPoP?
SDLPoP is an open-source project that aims to allow people to play the original Prince of Persia DOS games on modern systems without the use of tools like DosBox. It was originally created by disassembling the code of the original game to get the source. Now we can all enjoy it on the Vita thanks to developer usineur.
