King Solomon's Lost Mines is a single player jewel / tile matching game. The game has over one thousand levels. Each level consists of a pattern of tiles, underneath some of the tiles the background is coloured gold or platinum. To complete a level the player must match three or more jewels of the same colour while one, or all, are on these coloured cells. This clears the cells and when all the gold / platinum cells have been cleared the level is complete.Gold cells clear with just one math, platinum cells clear with two matches. The game's features include:
  • Two modes of play. Relaxed Mode where the player takes their time and the Challenge mode where the player must score as much as possible before the timer runs out
  • High Score table for both modes of play
  • A save game feature
  • A Hint feature
  • A Chain Lock obstacle and a Magic Pouch feature
The player starts with three lives and gains an extra life after scoring a multiple of twenty-five thousand points. When there are no possible combinations left to be made the game resets the play area, in challenge mode this costs the player a life.

The game has sound, music, and plays entirely via the mouse.
