The Search for King Solomon's Mines is a graphical text adventure game developed by Australian company Softgold (formerly Gameworx Software), which specialised in multi-load text adventures written in BASIC.
Gameplay is based on the Scott Adams Standard 2-word verb-noun parser.
The game is subtitled "Part I" and a "Part II" follow-up was planned and reached the early stages of development but was never released due to Softgold retiring from the market.
On first glance, the story appears to be based on the Victorian era novel King Solomon's Mines
A delirious adventurer staggers from the jungle raving about 7ft Natives, a searing volcano and a cache of treasure fit for a king...
And so the quest begins....
THE SEARCH FOR KING SOLOMON'S MINES.
In this graphic adventure, you must find your way through the perils of the African jungle, past hostile natives, across raging rivers and into the mysterious snow capped Tallawasi Mountains in search of the legendary KING SOLOMON'S MINES.
