Arcade Archives Solomon's Key
Critic Reviews for Arcade Archives Solomon's Key
Solomon's Key is undoubtedly one of the better action-puzzlers of the NES era, but sadly it lacks that extra… something that could turn it into something better than just a 'good' title to spend some evenings with. With that said, it's far from a bad experience. The way the action blends with the puzzle-solving is pretty neat, and there are usually multiple solutions to a problem, raising the replay value a bit. Just be ready for a very, very challenging ordeal. This won't show you a single ounce of mercy.
Anyone who checked out the NES version either on Nintendo Switch Online or back in the day should really give this Arcade original a shot, since it’s surprisingly addictive. The speed focus is perfect for the caravan mode, making this game one of the most fitting for the score chasing mode in quite a while. It’s still a tricky game, but it’s much more fun than you may expect, and it’s great that Hamster brought this arcade gem to a new generation.
