Prince of Persia revolves around gameplay mechanics that producer Ben Mattes identifies as "pillars" of the Prince of Persia series; an acrobatic hero exploring a Persian environment with a balanced mixture of acrobatics, combat, and puzzle-solving. The premise of Prince of Persia is that the player travels around the game world to heal specially designated spots of land. The game only features a single player mode, and cannot be played by multiple people at once. The player assumes the role of the Prince character, and is accompanied by the AI-controlled companion named Elika. The player can use the Prince character's acrobatic prowess, sword, and gauntlet, as well as magic from Elika to perform combat and acrobatic feats variously throughout the game.

Prince of Persia features open-world exploration that allows the player to travel to any spot in the game world at any given point, and allows the player to witness the plot in any way they want. Depending on how the player progresses, previously visited areas will become more challenging to traverse when the play re-visits them. However, when the player heals a spot of land, it becomes void of traps. The traps are manifested in various forms of the antagonist Ahriman's Corruption; black-colored blobs that coat the land and swallow the player if touched. The player can use acrobatics maneuvers to avoid these traps.

The player has many acrobatics maneuvers at their disposal. Acrobatics are also used in combat to vault over enemies, or hit them into the air. Sometimes when performing these acrobatics, the player is aided by Elika. There are magical plates that allow the player to perform even more complicated acrobatic feats via Elika. If the player fails to signal Elika's magic, they fall off of the plate, sometimes to their death.

The player can not conventionally "die" in Prince of Persia. Rather, when an enemy is about the strike the finishing blow, or the player falls off of a cliff, Elika saves the player. There is not a limit on the number of times Elika can save a player. Along with saving the player, Elika can perform many acrobatic feats or combat feats in tandem with the player. The downloadable content Epilogue added a new magic plate that allows Elika to recreate destroyed objects. A new combat maneuver for the player was also added.

Such a stupid idea to reboot the series. They should have atleast allowed
us to make levels for the game. It had alot of cool new acrobatics, but
the story was kind of lame and mediocre. Oh the black ooze, its evil, and
we have to destroy whats causing it. Very original stuff guys >_>.

If this game was open to modding from its release, it would have gotten
alot of attention, and probably better support from the community.
