Summary


Battle Lode Runner came onto the scene in 1993 after a successful life in the arcades.  Hudson took the title and gave it the graphics the equivalent of triple bypass surgery.  The new Battle Lode Runner brought a fantastic blend of brain-melting puzzles and brutal multiplayer action to the PC Engine.  Now with its US debut, you can  experience this rare classic for the first time on your Wii™ Virtual Console™!

In Puzzle Mode you control Lode Runner, navigating levels of platforms, ladders, and hanging pipes trying to collect all of the gold scattered throughout the map.  This task isn’t easy though, as baddies ranging from scary (but cute) dinosaurs, mobsters, and even Black Bomberman scour the level hunting you down!  Thankfully you have your handy vaporizer equipped.  Just shoot out the floor and trap your enemies to gain some thinking time.  The concept seems simple doesn’t it? 

Wrong!  Prepare to be utterly challenged, victorious, demoralized, and hopelessly addicted all in a matter of minutes!  The gameplay gets absolutely frantic when you have to solve seemingly simple puzzles to reach the gold and dodge all of the bad guys at the same time without trapping yourself in a rematerializing piece of the floor!

Lode Runner was one of the first games I ever played, back when I was around 4. I'm not sure how I feel about this version, but it's still an interesting edition. =)
