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, including options to magnify the screen around the Runner and set the play speed. Worldwide leaderboards track the top scores submitted from around the globe and you can choose to post your top scores on your Facebook wall to show off your old-school gaming chops.

"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

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

    It plays great on my Nexus 7 and Galaxy S4, but a controller is a must.

    I loved this game when I was playing it on my C64. I was excited when I found this app and I'm impressed just how similar this is to the original game. The way the guards behave is exactly how it was on the Commodore game and I still remember how to take

    This game would be great if the controls actually worked well. The Dpad control doesn't work, the touch control is too awkward and the accelerometer control isn't accurate enough. Not worth the money.
