“Solomon’s Keeps” – One of the Best Action RPGs in the App Store

There are a few action RPG’s for the iPhone but for some reason Solomon’s Keeps by Raptisoft is the only one I can’t put down. The games story is kind dumb but the gameplay makes up for it. It reminds me of a simpler Diablo, Blizzards action RPG for the PC, which I use to play in High School.

In Solomon’s Keep you move around and shoot using the popular dual stick control scheme. As you kill enemies you gain experiences points, which you use to gain levels and learn new skills. Gold and magic items are found throughout the game. Gold is useful for buying health and manna potions or buying skill upgrades. Items are rare but give you an edge in the game when the going gets tough.

There are ton of different baddies that try to kill you in this game like skeletons, zombies, and imps, just to name a few. There are also 21 skills to master and 50 weapons to wield. So killing them only gets easier the longer you stay alive.

The point of the game is to reach the top of Solomon tower and kill Solomon himself. This never gets boring since the game creates random dungeons and monsters, each time you start a new game.

OMG play this game if you love to play action RPGs. This is one of the good ones and the developers are consistently listening to feedback and improving the game.

OMG don’t play this game if you’re expecting a great story to take you thought the game. This game is about killing your way to the top and nothing else. For me this is a good thing, for others they may find it lacking.

Overall this is a great action RPG that keeps getting better with each update. I am really impressed with how fast the developers are updating this game with new content. For only 1.99 you’re getting a lot of game for your cost of admission. I have had this game for months and I still play it. If you are on the fence, I would suggest you try out the lite version.
