Lode Runner

Episode I: Classicwards

Lode Runner, originally developed by Brøderbund in 1983, was one of the first games to fuse arcade with puzzle elements. Now you can enjoy reworked classics with Lode Runner series by ZX Games.

The first episode features the very first 75 levels introduced in 1983.

The rules of the game remain unchanged: collect treasures, dig traps for enemies (a.k.a Bungelings) that are trying to hunt you down and move up the screen to get to the next level. Refer to Lode Runner Manual for detailed description.

Infinite lives let you enjoy the game. Quick save & load help you challenge difficult levels. There is level editor for you to get creative. You can easily browse through levels to edit and/or play them over.

You will definitely appreciate smooth control, which lets you focus on the game, not on figuring out how to mount a ladder. Switch between full-screen and window modes at your convenience.

“I can’t thank you enough! I have loved this game from its inception and it has been a great connecting point for my granddaughter and I. You’ve made some fantastic improvements.”

Mark J. Johnson

I love you guys :-*. My brother and I were/are LR junkies playing for hours and hours (and that was, yes, 1983 on my Apple IIC and his Commodore). I had all the versions and knock-offs. Then I got the newer version from Brøderbund. Then XP ended that. Every once in a while I would look online hoping against hope... then I found you about a month ago. And all is well in the world again. I am truly grateful to you for resurrecting the game.”

Anita, New York

“Thanks for bringing back a great old-school game.”
