Description of Solomon's Key

A disappointing conversion of Tecmo's popular platform/puzzle arcade game, done by Probe Entertainment. I remember this game quite well on the C64 when it was a lot of fun. Simple goal, good playability: solve a room by finding the key and then reaching the exit. You can destroy and create blocks with your magic wand. The PC version with its CGA graphics and beeper sound doesn't quite live up to the expectations or addictiveness of the original. The gameplay is intact, but the atmosphere is almost completely missing. You'll need a slow-down util to play it on modern computers.

Overall, an obvious Montezuma's Revenge wannabe that unfortunately doesn't come close to that classic due to lackluster conversion. It's still quite fun, but Probe could have done a much better job at retaining the flair of C64 version.
