Somebody's writing a clean-room implementation of Solomon's Key for the NES. All of the original levels are already implemented. Theoretically cross-platform. Doesn't quite work yet but it's getting there. Includes a level editor so you can build your own levels. Seems to have some tricks to getting it to run but I haven't tried them yet.

Speedruns are when an experienced gamer tries to sprint through a video game as fast as possible without dying. The goal is rarely to avoid damage (in fact, strategic damage is often necessary) but to successfully complete the game in one go. Some are extremely short (a few minutes) while others are a significant fraction of the usual playing time
