DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON FOOL’S GOLD
Play the authentic Lode Runner… this is the real deal!
AWARD WINNING GAMEPLAY
Lode Runner Classic combines the game play and all 150 levels of the award-winning Apple II original Lode Runner with graphics and features engineered for today's advanced smartphones. The game's frantic action takes place in maze-like, static levels, where a single player dodges enemies while running and climbing to reach and claim stacks of gold. No jumping is allowed. And shooting enemies is forbidden, but you can blast blocks to access lower platforms or trap pursuing enemies. Winding your way through ever-increasing levels of complexity makes for a superior challenge, but now you can choose to play any one of the 150 levels at any time.
EXCITING NEW FEATURES
Although the gameplay remains true to the original Apple II version, there are plenty of new features to enhance the experience. You can magnify the screen around the Runner, set the play speed, adjust the coloring of the art and compete for top spot on the worldwide leaderboards.
•150 puzzling levels – all unlocked and accessible
•Two game modes – Expedition and Time Attack
•New magnification effect – zoom the action around the Runner
•Multiple play speeds – super slow to superfast action
•Fully adjustable color palettes
•Multiple control schemes
•Illustrated How to Play section
"When the first Lode Runner came out on the Apple II, the last thing I expected was that the game would be alive and kicking on a platform as advanced as today’s smartphones more than 25 years later. It's really gratifying to me that so many people are still interested in the game."
Douglas E. Smith, Original Creator
“In the early days, there was Lode Runner. I consider it a real puzzle game. That was my favorite for many, many years. It’s such a good combination of dynamic stuff, the finger-work, and real planning and puzzle-solving. Every level was a real puzzle with its own mechanics, its own dynamics, its own kind of solution. At the same time, it was an arcade game to play. This combination was done absolutely right. I can’t imagine any other game with such inventive and unusual design.”
Alexey Pajitnov, Tetris Creator

Love the Game; Hate the Controls
This goes as far back to the early '80s. I love playing it in the old, classic MS-DOS version of the game, with only four classic colors - cyan, purple, black, and white (I changed these colors in the "options" area to give it a more appeal). I think of some of the game's aspects, like the silly fun of the cannibals, but the controls made for this game of course makes it a drag to move around Lode Runner. Still, I think that it is worth every penny. 😀
Awesome game and no glitch on 64
This game is the the shiznet!! I used to play it on my old apple 2GS back in the early 80s and it's exactly the same.. The controls are not perfect but what can one expect without a keyboard or attached controller.. Also there is no glitch as another user stated, u just need to run on a falling cannibals head to beat the level!
Just like the original
Lode runner was one of the best games computer games from the 80s combining arcade play along with puzzle solving. Glad to see this version that's as fun to play as the original was 30 years ago.
