    Lösen Sie das Geheimnis von…

    Kehren Sie zurück in ein Zeitalter voller Intrigen , an den Ort. wo der sagenumwobene Schatz König Salomons einst in ruhmvollen Glanz erstrahlte. Das ist der Ort, wo der Schlüssel, der Sie diesen sagenhaften Reichtümern nahebringt, in einem Netz geheimnisvoller Räume verborgen liegt, und wo sich mysthische Wesen zwischen mächtigen Steinsäulen und versteckten Gefahren befinden, die Ihre Lebenskraft solange erhalten, bis Sie Ihr hohes Ziel erreicht haben.

The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987):


    In the Dark Time, when demons ruled the Earth, a great magician named Solomon devised a powerful magic formula which captured and locked all demons within a Sign of the Zodiac. A secret book, Solomon's Key, held the magic formula. Thousands of years of peace and tranquility followed, until a Taoist Monk discovered the book and maliciously freed the demons, plunging the earth back into darkness. Fairy King Yutra of Lurac has called upon the wizard, Dana, to restore order to the world and free the abducted fairies and his daughter, Princess Lihita.

    GAME PLAY: As Dana, you must find Solomon's Key and destroy all the Goblins, Saramandors, Dragons, Gargoils, Ghosts, Neuls, Panel Monsters and disembodied Demonsheads--before they destroy you. Your weapons include deadly fireballs hidden in innocent objects and the powerful medicines of Edlem and Mapros plus many more surprises. Your journey may well end in death. But death is preferable to life under the rule of evil demons.
