Solomon’s Boneyard for iPhone

If you ask me, ‘what’s the most interesting game with the highest playability rating for the iPhone?‘, I’d probably tell you it’s Solomon’s Boneyard. It’s just so addictive I couldn’t stop playing since the day I bought it back in 2010.

A little introduction of the story in Solomon’s Boneyard:

Twenty-Three years before the horrifying events chronicled in “Solomon’s Keep,” the Wizard’s college first suspected they might have a problem with one of their new graduates. A battle mage was dispatched to put an end to this young “Solomon Dark” before he could grow in power…

In Solomon’s Boneyard, you can play as one of seven young wizards, with over thirty skills to master. The game is a survival two-thumb shooter, where you will face wave after wave of undead hordes, while gaining levels and choosing new skills to fight with. The game comes complete with a high score list, and an innovative perks system that will allow you to grow in power the more you play.

This is the graveyard. Your playground. Basically when you start the game, you will meet Solomon, and somehow he is always digging graves when you enter the game. After a little chat, he will send his minions to attack you. All you do here is destroying endless waves of all sorts of zombies, skeleton like zombies, archers, fire mage etc. They get stronger as you level up.

Defeating these zombies gives you XP, some drop health and/mana orbs, some drop coins and some drop magic rings. As you collect more coins, you can buy upgrades from the Perks section. Magic rings makes you stronger when equipped.
Everytime you level up, you get to choose 1 out of 3 options to upgrade your wizard’s ability.

What I like about this game:

– Different wizard has different powers and abilities (homing orbs, fire balls, lightning and chill wind). We get to pick from 4 by default. 3 more needs to be unlocked using coins.
– It’s challenging as we tend to go high levels and earn more kill points (beating your own scores or your friends’ achievements)
– The ability to upgrade your wizard with perks, making it stronger.

What I dont like about this game:

– The temptation of the perks tends to make you feel like performing an in-app purchase to buy coins. Haha
