According to a source I cannot disclose but who is trusted by me, Solomon’s Key is a puzzle game developed by Tecmo in 1986 for arcade release on custom hardware based on the Z80 chipset.

Actual Gameplay Footage

I had this crazy dream last night wherein it was revealed to me that the recent ‘cult status’ of this week’s game was actually part of a small conspiracy to help Bandai sell off the rest of their unsold copies of Monster Party for inflated prices.

Now I feel this wasn’t a dream at all, but a whisper from the Secret Chiefs. You heard it here first.

An in depth play-through of one of the most beloved and brutal action titles on the NES. Battletoads, created by Rare and published by Tradewest (1991) holds a place near and dear to the hearts of anyone in their early to mid 30s. Starring three anthropomorphic toads named after skin conditions, Rash, Zitz, and Pimple, the series was created to rival the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games. The series as a whole has been quite popular and at its apex spawned an animated television pilot.
The initial Battletoads game for the NES was renowned for its difficulty, but also received a cult following and spawned sequels for various platforms including a crossover with the Double Dragon series. In each of the games, the objective is to defeat the toads’ nemesis the Dark Queen and her army of space mutants.
