Game graphics trivia:
That colorful VGA title screen from Prince of Persia? It's only 16 colors. That mean the same asset could be used in DOS, Amiga, and Atari ST versions without any changes, as was common at the time (1990).
Here is the screen across 3 platforms & its palette:

Original Apple II version of the Prince of Persia title screen from 1989.
DOS version from 1990.
High resolution Mac version from 1992.

@dosnostalgic This reminds me, I actually have the original Broderbund DOS version still.

@dosnostalgic It was CGA for me, and monochrome at my school. ;)
