Solomon's Key - C64 Game Cheats

Game Review & Description

Harry Potter, eat your heart out! Embarking on the adventure that is Solomon's Key for the Commodore 64 feels akin to enrolling in a wizarding school where the final exam involves navigating an increasingly complex series of rooms, each one a puzzle that demands both wit and dexterity to solve. Here, you don the mantle of Dana, a wizard with the ability to create and destroy blocks, tasked with retrieving the titular Solomon's Key to banish demons back to their dark realm. It’s as though the developers decided that both puzzle enthusiasts and action gamers needed a common ground, and thus, Solomon's Key was born.

Graphically, Solomon's Key is a delightful showcase of the Commodore 64’s prowess in bringing to life a series of confined, yet intricately designed puzzle rooms. The sprite work is detailed and expressive, imbuing our protagonist Dana with a sense of character often missing from puzzle games of this era. The enemies, from fluttering flames to bounding demons, are rendered with a charm that belies their deadly intent.

The game's audio is a minimalist composition, providing a backdrop that is both engaging and non-intrusive. The sound effects, from the magical chime of block creation to the sinister sizzle of enemy fire, serve as both feedback and forewarning, guiding the player through the game’s challenges.

Gameplay in Solomon's Key is a fine balance between action and puzzle-solving. Dana’s magical abilities to create and destroy blocks are at the core of the gameplay, requiring players to think geometrically about how to navigate through each room. With the addition of spells, hidden rooms, and bonus items, the game layers complexity upon its seemingly simple premise, offering a rich and rewarding experience to those who delve into its secrets.

Solomon's Key on the Commodore 64 offers a puzzle-solving experience wrapped in the trappings of an action-adventure game. So prepare your wands, sharpen your wits, and may your magic guide you to victory. Remember, in the world of Solomon's Key, every block placed is a step closer to solving the grand puzzle.

Solomon's Key - Tips and Tricks

For those intrepid wizards ready to unlock the secrets of Solomon's Key, here are some enchantments to aid your quest:

  1. Master the Mechanics: Understanding the full range of Dana’s abilities is crucial. Practice creating and destroying blocks in safe environments to get a feel for their possibilities.
  2. Explore Thoroughly: Many levels contain hidden items and rooms. Experiment with where you place blocks, as sometimes the key to uncovering these secrets is less about where you can go and more about what you can make appear or disappear.
  3. Timing is Everything: Enemies follow specific patterns. Observing and learning these can help you predict movements and plan your path accordingly.
  4. Spell Selection: You’ll discover various spells throughout your journey. Some can clear enemies, while others reveal hidden items. Use them wisely, as they can drastically alter the outcome of more challenging rooms.

Infinite Lives

After loading the game, use a reset switch or cartridge to return to the command prompt, then type POKE 33570,173: POKE 8854,66 and hit RETURN. Then, input the command SYS 2063 to return to the game with unlimited lives!

Alternatively, if you have an Action Replay cartridge, you can simply reset the game and enter POKE 2213,165 to gain infinite lives.

Treasure Hint

When bullets are fired at you, shoot them (yup, shoot the bullets) with one of your fireballs to transform them into treasure.
