    Thanks for that! Really helps!

    Man, I love this game! It relly sucked me in, and I love how you can customise your wizard to be an expert in fireballs, or a jack-of-all-trades.
    Also, an unexpected but pleasant surprise is that once you "complete" the game, you're challenged to try again but this time with a restriction of your choice... such as "promise won't use any items", "won't buy Wisdom to boost skills", or "complete within an hour". I really appreciate that! I think I'm going to have to click the in-app donate button... you guys have really thought this one out! Love it!

    SK is a terrific game and one of my all time favs but noticed when using the Ring of Fire skill it takes a few taps to get a response, if at all and yea, its powered up. I'm at Wizard Difficulty level 29 and its getting to be a much harder game with this not working properly. I really enjoy this skill and my personal preference so continuing to use it although its getting to be a major handicap at this point in the game. Anyone experienced this when played?

    Edit: nv, got it working.
    (found that wizard needs to be still for it to work)

    What a great little game this is, i could shoot myself in the foot for holding off for so long. Great little time waster. I enjoy the subtle Diablo nods, like the rain pouring on the town streets or some of the dialogue ("Ahh, Fresh Meat"). Had myself a good laugh at the opening dialogue introducing Solomon, hilarious.

    I´ve learned ur the guy behind Hamsterball, a quality title aswell. Keep up the good work!

    For those that are interested, I am trying to play a Solomon's Keep related April Fool's joke on a good friend... I need a lot of people to send irate e-mails for this to work.

    If you want to participate, see this thread here, it has instructions:

    But please send no e-mails until Apr 1!

    If he gets a certain amount of e-mails, I'm going to throw something into Solomon's Keep for free that was going to be a paid addon! So send, send like the wind!

    I'm late to the party, but I just discovered Solomon's Keep. This is a great game! Awesome work! Fun, easy to play, great (smooth!) controls, funny dialogue, all of that!

    I beat the game on the normal mode and am now playing through wizard mode. Have trouble with Monoculus but having a blast anyway. Thanks for an awesome game, and keep up the great work.

    Next, I'm going to try Solomon's Boneyard!

    OK, overall great game, have bought all the IAP, posted a detailed 5 star review, blah, blah....

    However, if nothing else is ever addressed for future updates, for the love of all that is good, could you add some sort of confirmation for the "trade all gold for experience".

    First off, rarely is this ever a good idea for reasons I'll detail in a second, second, I've been nailed by a mis-touch too many times. Here I am on a Demigod play through, just sold off a bunch of good stuff so I could buy a skill and... oh, gee, I will level up the next time I kill something, NOOOOOO!

    So now, here I am about to get a skill I would have gotten anyhow in a few more minutes since I was about to ding another level and I will never be able to accumulate enough gold before I reach Solomon to buy the skill I wanted, really not happy right this minute. It should only ever take enough gold to reach that next level.


    Here's why this probably shouldn't even be offered as it is currently implemented, and certainly needs some sort of confirmation:

    1. It doesn't become more economical to buy experience instead of skills until well after you've purchased so many skills you probably don't even care. The cost-benefit of this feature is poorly balanced.

    2. It doesn't roll over. It takes ALL your gold but you can never buy more experience than you need to be just shy of your next level. That is a very poor implementation.

    Stuck in wall too. But on demigod difficulty lvl 48 :((((. It started when the door in town from floor 8 didn't work. So i tried to climb up manually. But "booom" i emerged into wall somewhere in the middle of floor one. I tried to get free. Didn't work. So i restarted and it placed me at the beginning of floor one. Tried to climb to floor two and "booom". AGAIN. Stuck in wall, can't get out. restart doesn't work. LVL 48 char lost. :((((((((((((

    *EVERYONE* get this, I cannot recommend it highly enough, especially to fans of dual-stick shooters.

    (Except the magic cabinet is a little unclear...)

    What Game Center support has been added - leader boards or achievements, or both?

    Wow! That is the name of a game that I have not heard for quite a while.

    Great to see this thread reliving once again.

    What happened to the developer? There is a talk of a sequel, but that was more than a couple of years ago!
