About Lode Runner

Inspired by the celebrated 1983 original, the all-new Lode Runner was built from the ground up for Xbox LIVE Arcade. With Hi-Res 3-D graphics, frenzied 2-D action, 220 levels, and six play modes, the popular action platformer makes an epic return. Run, climb, blast blocks, outsmart enemies and grab the gold on your own or with a partner! Battle up to three friends on Xbox LIVE in a frantic game of tag, where the first to die are the first to avenge...as enemies! Survive endlessly spawning foes to earn medals and create devious levels to challenge the Community. Just as in the original award-winning game, the new Lode Runner rewards fast, smart and gutsy moves. Preserving the classic style of play was the foundation for creating the definitive Lode Runner experience!
