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
- Worldwide leaderboards
- 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

Lack of D-Pad or Keyboard support keeps it less than perfect A good effort at recreating a classic Apple II game. The graphics are nice (though a higher resolution option might be fun to look at, as well as classic Apple II green screen), and you can't beat those puzzles. Unfortunately, as anyone who played this on the Apple II (which had a standard analog joystick) will tell you, it's best played with digital controls (most people just used the keyboard back in the day). However, they added Moga support but no HID gamepad support or keyboard support. Worse, I own the Moga Hero Power and it actually maps the game to the analog stick only. Playing a game as fast as lode runner, requiring precise digital controls, just doesn't work well with the Moga analog stick or, I suspect, any analog stick. It's a shame they didn't make it work with standard bluetooth/HID controllers, most of which have gamepads, or keyboard presses (which can be mapped to many keyboards and android game controllers). Please update this to include HID support and mappable keyboard controls so everyone can have fun with the precise control the game requires.

Not the same and buggy as hell Used to be a great game but this is buggy as hell. Enemies run through walls on some levels and the controls could be better. I could deal with the controls but making me pay for something that is full of bugs which cost you the game just sucks. Really disappointed as I used to love this game.
