In ancient Persia, a young prince and his father's army raid a city where the prince acquires the Dagger of Time. With captured women of the palace and the dagger in their clutches, the army heads to the palace of the Maharajah to show him the dagger. In the Maharajah's throne room is the Hourglass in which the dagger is embedded into. The prince places the dagger into the hourglass where without realizing it, he releases the ancient Sands of Time. Now with the entire palace infected with sand creatures and dilapidated into ruin, only three remain: The Prince, Farah and the evil Vizier. You must play as the prince and use the dagger as your ultimate weapon with Farah as your sidekick and the Vizier as your ultimate enemy.
