Prince of Persia Revelations: run away!

I've made it to the next boss, and I have a feeling I'm going to once again get tired of the game and not play it for a month or so. The boss is a big troll-like thing. One touch and you're dead.

So, you have to run away, making sure to hurry so the floor doesn't collapse beneath you or he catches you up. This is made rather difficult by:
  • the camera, which won't turn corners quick enough for you to see when to jump
  • the general colour scheme, which means you can't make out where there are bars to jump onto
  • the fact that it's sunny, so the PSP's screen looks all washed out
  • the horrendous inaccuracy of the PSP's analogue stick
In effect, it becomes a chore, having to play it over and over again by trial and error. That's just not fun.
