Title
The arcade game is one big interactive movie, where at key points you need to press one of the four directional buttons or the action/sword button. The original arcade was *very* unpredictable since it showed no hints where you could jump to safety, and it also went at a lightning fast pace, making this game very much a test of trial and error. Ports to numerous systems offer quick time event-like signs of what to press, which greatly helps and makes them far better than playing it on an arcade.

It's a brief and uninventive game, but makes up for it with its animation and sheer novelty factor.

Title
The princess is not worth it
This is a terrible game. You have a movie playing in the background and you must press the movement or attack keys, or else you will face a swift death. Unfortunatly, there is no clear indication of when to do so, and the game quickly becomes a trial and error affair. Obviously this was made to suck as many coins as possible from the 12 minutes movie it is made from. Its a very frustrating experience, and i would advice you just to watch the movie on youtube.
