About this game

Play the authentic Lode Runner… this is the real deal!

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.

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 leaderboard.

- Lode Runner Classic Features:
- 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
- Worldwide leaderboards
- Multiple control schemes
- Illustrated How to Play section

It's Lode Runner. It's definitely a classic. The only problem is that the soft controls leave a lot to be desired. It frequently refuses to accept my inputs, and the character sometimes changes directions without my changing the movement. If that can be fixed, it would be an outstanding port of a great classic. Right now, it is mediocre.

Fun, not quite the same but fun. I played this game quite extensively back in the '80s on an Apple IIe. I have routes for several levels memorized, but they don't work for this game because the gameplay is different. Most noticeable is that the "bad guys" are slower. On the original, I could run over 3 bad guys if they fell into the blasted holes one right after the other but it was really hard to do before the first one that fell in started getting back out. This makes the game easier, though.

The UI for controls really sucks whether using touch or gamepad mode. in touch mode i try to go up and the menu comes up. if i try to go down a ladder sometimes it burns bc it doesn't react right away so i hold it a bit more. Then of course it responds & jump right in to the hole I just burned. On a pc I was always level 100+. Can't even get through level 1 here.
