Nintendo NES Exclusive 'Solomon's Key 2' Unofficially Ported To Commodore Amiga

Solomons-Key-2-Commodore-Amiga-PortIn 1993 Tecmo released a follow up to their popular puzzle-em-up Solomon's Key on the Nintendo NES (also known as Fire ‘n Ice in North America). Although the game remained a console exclusive, Amiga fans have finally brought the title over to the home computer in a brand new unofficial port.

If you’re yet to tackle the Solomon’s Key prequel, the magical puzzle platformer tasks you with putting out fires using slippery ice blocks. Push them in the wrong order or the wrong way and you’ll soon find yourself needing to rethink the level.

Homebrew Commodore Amiga developer Hukka recently released a downloadable disk image of his efforts to bring the game over to the classic computer. While some of the more complex levels may be missing from this port, this all new unofficial port introduces a level editor into the array, along with several custom levels to take on too.

This Amiga port of Solomon’s Key 2 supposedly works on any Commodore set-up, however, you’ll need some way of transferring the ADF image back to an original floppy disk. Failing that you can always enjoy this port through the Amiga emulator, WinUAE.

It's really nice to see a new Amiga release, as it's little brother the C64 gets all the attention these days.

Hope Hukka find the time to add in the levels with enemies.

The irony is that the game was called Fire 'n Ice in the United States, which is an altogether different game on the Amiga (a slippery platformer starring a scruffy coyote, I believe).
