Solomon Dark takes place a couple months after Solomon's Boneyard. You can kinda figure out Boneyard being phased out, with Dark being the remake that supplants it.

You can actually explore the Wizard's College a bit-- it acts as the staging area like the town in Diablo. Perks, Inventory, and items are all managed here, plus there's some characters around just for talking to for fun.

The gameplay itself is virtually identical to Boneyard, except it has fleshed out skill trees like Diablo or Titan Quest (you can still play in random mode, but essentially, "Bribe Destiny" is unlocked from the start). There are more monsters, more spells, more items, more perks, and even set items. If everything goes well, there will also be some tools that will allow people to make their own graveyards (along with some simple event triggers) and upload them to the web for sharing (similarly to Kitty Connect in Robot Wants Kitty). I am not 100% positive that that's going to work out yet, but I'm trying.

You can follow progress on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX7m7...ture=g-all-lik), but I only upload videos when I hit a major milestone. The next upload I will do will be when the summoning skills are complete.

Default Raptisoft is back!!

Solomon Keep was one of my favorite dual stick shooters ever! The spell effects with the lighting is looking killer.

thank you raptisoft for a game thats lasted me since my iphone 3g days.

is it possible that you can provide some retina screenshots for SB..
because the graphics translate very well on retina so im curious as to how they'd look redone to compliment the retina display.

thanks in advance.

Yeah, screenshots or we could all fly to Apple in person and tell them to hurry the F up with the review process.

Still waiting for review. BTW, the screenshots basically just come out double sized, i.e. nothing special. Since they're rendered, they just have higher resolution, don't look much different!

The Retina is there. I think it's just that it is such an older game that Retina is only going to do so much. But yes, it is definitely crisper. It's not huge, but I noticed it right off the bat.

I'm sure Solomon Dark will look pretty sweet with Retina since it will be brand new.

Rapti, who does the voices for Solomon himself? Is it you? Solomon is the MAN.
