  • Summary: Near the town of Dead Hawg, past the Grimwood, at the very PEAK of Mount Awful, there stands a crumbling tower of mortar and stone.

    Deep within this foul edifice, the blackest necromancer of modern times, Solomon Dark, sits on his horrible throne.

    As a near graduate of the Wizarding
    College, your final exam is to storm Solomon's Keep. Dispatch the dark wizard, loot his evil possessions, unbind his horrific minions, and prove to your teachers once and for all that you're not as stupid as you look.

    ----

    In Solomon's Keep, you move your wizard with one thumb, and fire magic spells with the other. As you destroy enemies, you earn experience points. Gain enough experience, and you'll gain a level, and can select new skills to help you ascend the tower.

    Along the way you'll find gold and magic items. Your helpful teachers are there to explain the ins and outs of wizarding, sell you a few useful items, and even give you a few tips to improve your skills.

    Along the way you'll encounter Solomon's skeletons, zombies, imps, and more. You might even encounter an undead king, and Solomon's meticulously reconstructed maggot vomiting skeletal dragon.

    You'll have a chance to master 21 skills and wield over 50 magic, rare, and epic weapons.

    With random dungeons and monsters, Solomon's Keep offers infinite replayability. It's never the same game twice!

    If you're fond of action RPGs, Solomon's Keep will satisfy your black heart.

    Solomon's Keep is a quick-hitting dungeon crawler that delivers solid replay value and retro appeal.

    Fans of action-RPG games and Diablo in particular will feel at home with Solomon's Keep and its foreboding environments, but its simplified style makes this a great game for casual gamers to dip their toe in to.

    The game is so much fun you'll want to go through it multiple times, which gives you a chance to expand your character in different ways each time.

    Solomon's Keep is an action RPG based on randomness: random dungeons, random skill levels and random enemies. The result is a nice game, but the level design is unfortunately repetitive. Considering the budget price, for action-RPG lovers it can be a good buy.

    At a buck Solomon's Keep might be an interesting diversion for the dual stick shooter and dungeon crawler fan. Technical issues, short game life, and strange design choices makes it less appealing to the casual gamer.
