Jaleco’s Arcade Puzzler “Soldam” Joins the Arcade Archives on Switch, PS4

Game publisher Hamster has announced that Soldam, the matching puzzle game, is now available on PS4 and Nintendo Switch as part of the digital Arcade Archives series.

Originally released in arcades by Jaleco in 1992, Soldam was later ported to the Japanese Game Boy in Japan and an updated version was released for PS4 and Nintendo Switch as Soldam: Drop, Connect, Erase. However, this is the first time that the original game is getting a home console release.

In Soldam, players match dropping squares of colored nuts into a solid row. If the colors of edges match, then the nuts in that direction will also change color, whether horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. As time progresses, the top of the screen drops, giving you less space to manipulate the dropping nuts.

Like other Arcade Archives titles, players can post their high scores to the online leaderboards and change various game settings to match their own personal skill levels and taste.

Arcade Archives Soldam is available today for $7.99 via PSN and the Nintendo Switch eShop. You can check out some screenshots below, or visit the official Hamster website here for additional info.
