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 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

- 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

Controls are terrible I got so excited to find this game and relive my childhood, but the controls are so awkward and just frustrating. It would be an amazing game if the controls were better.

Wait for next version. The controls don't work very well.

Dreadful Controls I was excited to see that the owner of the Lode Runner license had released the game in an Android version. It appears that the conversion was done by Studio Voltz, and all I can say is that someone blew it, big time. Specifically, the controls for this game are well-nigh unusable. A simple relocatable screen-overlaid joystick (as in, e.g., Terraria) would have made this game a joy. As it is, there are three control options, all terrible. Let's examine them one by one! First, there's the D-Pad. This shrinks the size of the game screen to approximately half of its original size (by square area), in order to make room for gigantic d-pad buttons. I can barely see the game screen. Next. Second, there's the on-screen controls. Rather than using a flexible relative-to-click-position joystick, this game simply maps screen areas to joystick positions. This means that if you want to move up, you must place your finger at the top of the screen, completely obscuring the screens. Might work for people with extremely narrow fingers. Next. Third, there's the tip-screen. Urrg. No thanks. Frankly, I think it reflects quite poorly on Studio Voltz that they let this one out the door.

Classic arcade-style gaming meets me look This is a fantastic game that they adopted to the touch screen incredibly well.

Terrible controls - shame Was very excited to play this. Would be fantastic if only the controls were better. Unplayable as it is.
