Solomon's Key is a puzzle game developed by Tecmo in 1986 for arcade release on custom hardware based on the Z80 chipset. It is better known as a 1987 port to the Nintendo Entertainment System, although it also appeared on many other game systems of the time; for example, a Famicom Disk System port was released in Japan on January 25, 1991.

The NES version was also released via the Wii Virtual Console on the launch date of the Wii, November 19, 2006. The arcade version was released on the Virtual Console in Japan on August 18, 2009, in the PAL regions on September 11, 2009 and in North America on November 30, 2009.


On the overworld map of Solomon's Key 2, a Starman and Whispy Woods can be seen.

A hard to find sequel for the game was made entitled Fire 'n Ice in North America.
