    Lode Runner is now MOGA Enhanced! Available at major US and UK retailers, carrier stores and online at Supports MOGA Pro and Pocket controllers.

    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

    "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

    The controls need major Improvement, keep dying because instead of going up the character goes to the left, etc. It would be awesome if this was fixed.

    It is just like the original! However, while it's MOGA enhanced, it doesn't accept any other controllers. My controllers work with any other controller-based games. I asked the dev team but they haven't responded after a month.

    Lode Runner is a classic, but this version has totally crappy controls. Why use accelerometer (which is too imprecise for quick changes of direction), why emulate arrow keys / gamepad on screen? This is touch screen, for god's sake! Let the player tap a spot for the character to run there!

    Used 2 play on Apple II all the time. This version brings back lots of memories. The graphics & gameplay are spot on compared 2 memories of it. Would have given 5 stars but the controls suck! I miss my simple cheap joystick of the Apple II! Have ordered a Moga pro style controller. If this doesn't fix it I will have 2 pass on completing every level...
