Basic Idea: Dig holes to trap bad robots, while collecting gold and escaping to the next level. Repeat 149 more times.
Review: It’s a wonder I never played this game in DOS or on an Apple II when I was a kid. If I had, you can bet I would have spent a ton of time with it. While not as complex as I would like from my puzzle games, Lode Runner is pretty easy to learn and level design is unique enough to warrant continued playing. Play control is slightly rigid, which is not fun when robots are hurtling at you, but after some time it’s easy to adjust to. And while I didn’t use it, it was one of the first games in history to have a level editor.
