iPod Game: Hudson Releases Lode Runner for iPods
      12/21/08 10:03 PM

HUDSON SOFT has announced the simultaneous global release of the action puzzle game, "Lode Runner," custom-made for iPod, in 22 countries. The game will be sold on the iTunes Store ( for $4.99 and can be played on the iPod nano (3rd and 4th generation), iPod classic, and iPod (5th generation). One of the unique features is the casual style of play through use of the Click Wheel while listening to music on the iPod.

The classic action puzzle series, "Lode Runner," for iPod makes full use of the iPod's unique control system. In this single player game, you have to collect all the gold and climb the escape ladder as you avoid or defeat the robots that are out to get you in each stage. There are 5 game modes available: Standard, Expert, Master, Puzzle, and Gold Rush. Standard, Expert, and Master modes follow the same classic rules, but vary in difficulty while Master mode is the biggestchallenge.

Puzzle mode is quite different than the normal modes; instead of avoiding or defeating robots, the challenge is to dig holes in the right order to collect all of the gold. Gold Rush mode is exclusive to the iPod. The player must navigate the stage, which automatically scrolls downwards, as they collect the gold to achieve the highest score. This mode introduces a completely new style of gameplay to "Lode Runner". There are several types of gold available with bonus points being awarded for collecting the same type in a row, making the game highly strategic. Being trapped at the top of the screen as it scrolls down means game over.
