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.

- 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

- 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

    I love this game. I used to play it on my palm pda and now I play it on my android phone and I use my moga controller. It doesn't get better than that!

    I was very excited to see this game. Didnt even mind paying for it...the excitment ended when I tried to play it however. Very poorly supported.

    Great potential from a true classic. Desperately needs more testing. Persistent crashes and lock-up. Please continue to develop!

    Update renders dpad controls totally useless. I'm going to try the other control schemes, but I've already played 25 levels with the dpad, so I'm really disappointed with this change. Galaxy s4

    The game is a lot of fun, and this is coming from someone who's never played the original. However, there is some random slowdown that doesn't seem to be alleviated by a lack of background processes. Also, I thought the level editor was a big sell point of the original? They really ought to bring that functionality back in. I just expected more polish considering the surprisingly high price po
