Lode Runner rightly has a great reputation as a quality game - and this Spectrum version is no exception. Read Review
Because of the huge number of screens, there are 75 on one side of the tape and 75 on the second side. Read Review
There must be months of enjoyment here. However, the excellent editing facilities are barely mentioned, so you'll struggle until you get the hang of them! Read Review
A truly excellent game... Your character runs about insanely and, despite his matchstick construction, he seems to possess a character all his own. Read Review
Good fun for a few minutes, but I got tired of it rather quickly. Read Review
If you forget about the abysmal plot, substandard graphics, lack of music and predictability of each screen you could say that the game is addictive. Yes, you could, but I'm not. Read Review

You are a highly trained Galactic Commando deep in enemy territory. Power hungry leaders of the repressive Bungling Empire have stolen a fortune in gold from the peace loving people, and you have just discovered their secret underground treasury. Your goal? To recover every last ingot if Bungling 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 quick wits and brains!
Create your own games!
