Another new Xbox Live Game of the Week is out for Windows Phone!
This week’s other new Xbox Live game is Lode Runner Classic. For gamers who weren't around back when PCs were the go-to platform for gaming, Lode Runner was a pioneer in user-generated content. The original versions of the game allowed users to create their own levels and share them with friends. While this port doesn't seem to include such functionality, the gameplay remains as retro as ever: collect all the gold, avoid all of the bad guys, and make it to the top of the level to advance. Sometimes, simpler is better. Here is the official description of the game:
Lode Runner Classic contains all of the block-blasting mayhem of the original 1983 smash hit, in which the untiring Runner faces off against relentlessly pursuing enemies in level after level of gold-grabbing gluttony.
The game contains all 150 original levels and mimics the manipulable, original enemy AI. Build your high score as you play through levels sequentially in Expedition mode or whittle down your level completion times in Time Attack mode! Both modes support leaderboards.
• 150 puzzling levels – all unlocked and accessible
• Clever, non-disposable enemies
• New magnification effect – zoom the action around the Runner
• Multiple play speeds – super slow to superfast action
• 2 control schemes – virtual D-pad and touch controls
• Illustrated How to Play section
• Xbox LIVE Achievements and Leaderboards
Lode Runner Classic is available in the Marketplace for $2.99 along with the standard free trial.
