Description from the packaging.

An action game and game generator by Doug Smith.

Spellbinding action!
You are a highly trained galactic commando deep in enemy territory. Power hungry leaders of the repressive Bungeling Empire have stolen a fortune in gold from the peace loving people, and you've just discovered their secret underground treasury. Your goal? To recover every last ingot of Bungeling booty. You'll be running, jumping, and climbing heroically, solving perplexing puzzles, and drilling passageways through stone floors and barriers using your laser drill pistol. You'll need more than fleet feet and good looks to get through this mission alive. You'll need your quick wits and brains!

Create your own games!
Lode Runner is more than a fast-action game. It's a game generator that lets you design your own puzzles and scenes! You can move, add, and take away countless ladders, floors, trap doors, crossbars, gold chests, and Bungeling enemies. It's easy, and there's no end to the variations, challenge and fun!

  • An arcade style game with 150 different puzzles and scenes.
  • Design your own puzzles! No programming knowledge required!
  • Keyboard or joystick controlled.
