First images of Lode Runner

First images of Lode Runner

We just got the first images of a new Xbox Live Arcade classic, Lode Runner. The only info we got was that Southend and Tozai are involved in the development, so we'll have to wait for a release date and more details.

There need to be more games like this coming out. Where is my 2.5d Pitfall?

Wow that looks great! You rarely see such skilled remakes or upgrades to classic.

It's a little more than that. The biggest thing the game has that sets it apart is you shoot out blocks (only at your feet, to your right or left) that form pits enemies can fall into, and those blocks come back so it's not like you can make it impossible to get through the level because of it. Of course you can fall in the pits you create yourself, and then you die.

So this is that game? I loved it in the arcade (even though I only played it a couple of times when I was younger) and couldn't remember what it was called. I was over the moon when a similar game came out on the Megadrive called Wani Wani World! :D Any chance of an upgraded version of that on XBLA?

About the game


What's up?
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus lol unshited as online competitive? don't make me laugh. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I liked the first one. The cover system works okay in elimination deathmatch. I'm not a fan of sticky cover as a rule though. Especially now that many games have done contextual auto cover that works. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks I guess so? It's been a long time since I played one to be fair (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea.. that's what Gears of War is. (5 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks also GOW looked interesting from some of the competitive matches I saw. But lots of weird sticky cover play (5 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks just started playing the Forest today and sunk too much time with my buddy. WOOF that game is fun (5 Hours ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (6 Hours ago)
