More On: Lode Runner Legacy

If you're unfamiliar with the Lode Runner series and happen to own a PS4, you can now check out Lode Runner Legacy. The goal of the Lode Runner series is typically to regain stolen gold from the Evil Empire's labyrinth. This is done by clearing multiple puzzles and picking up any gold you see lying around. However, the enemies of the labyrinths can also pick up the gold before you can, but you can temporarily create holes for enemies to drop through (or yourself for that matter) and if an enemy was holding any gold before dropping into the hole they'll drop it. Once all the gold is collected you can leave the stage and move onto the next. It's a simple to understand concept but the puzzles get more and more complex as the game progresses.

Lode Runner Legacy includes the original 150 levels in Classic Mode, new levels in Adventure Mode, or you can just solve the puzzles without the pesky enemies getting in your way in Puzzle Mode. The game is currently 20% off the regular price of $11.99 until February 11th so if you've never experienced Lode Runner before, this is a good time to check it out.

Lode Runner Legacy Available Now on PlayStation®4
Bellevue, Wash. – January 29, 2020 – Lode Runner Legacy, the latest edition of the cult classic Lode Runner series, is now available worldwide on the PlayStation®4 console at the PlayStation® Store.

Cubed3 called Lode Runner Legacy, “the original game at its best, with added levels, a retro-friendly voxel art style that fits like a glove, and a level editor that raises the replay value sky high,” while Video Chums commented, “[s]imply put, Lode Runner Legacy is a retro remake done right. The fact that it contains so much content while remaining true to the original game makes it a must-have experience for any gamer who's thirsty for old-school fun.”
In Lode Runner Legacy, players control the Runner, solving puzzles to regain stolen gold from the Evil Empire’s labyrinth. Each puzzle is a unique challenge to the player’s puzzle-solving and strategic techniques. In Two-Player mode teammates must work together to defeat each level, and their cooperation is rewarded handsomely with prizes impossible for a single player to capture. The Two-Player mode also has online rankings, so play in perfect harmony and aim for the highest score in order to make it onto the board!
Additionally, players can flex their creative muscles in Lode Runner Legacy’s most unique feature: Craft Mode. Players can create original levels, characters, and items, which can then be shared online with players around the world. Share your original levels and characters or play other players’ levels in World Levels mode, and “Like” the best ones!
Lode Runner Legacy includes countless features and game modes for players to explore. Players can regain stolen gold from the Evil Empire in Adventure Mode, or play enemy-free puzzle levels in Puzzle Mode. Additionally, Lode Runner Legacy comes equipped with 150 of the original Lode Runner levels in Classic Mode, as well as several hidden levels for players to uncover. All in all, there are 300 levels for players to beat as well as any new levels posted online, providing players with limitless hours of entertainment.
First released in 1983, Lode Runner’s frantic and addictive gameplay has entertained generations of players, and Lode Runner Legacy updates the classic game for current systems while maintaining the spirit of the original.
