It's a fan made re-implementation of Lode Runner Online: The Mad Monks' Revenge. We played Lode Runner on and off over the last 20 years but when it no longer played nice with modern OS's, we decided rather than just not play it and remember it how it was, we'd re-create it!
We've thrown in a few new features and some tweaks here and there but most importantly - same graphics, same gameplay, and even the same bugs! You can follow our progress on our dev blog.
Is this an offical Lode Runner game?
We'd love for it to be but nope, it's just a fan made copy. We do not have permission from the Lode Runner rights holder (Tozai) or from the owners of Lode Runner Online: The Mad Monks' Revenge (Activision/Sierra).
Can I play on Mac or Linux without an emulator?
Yes! Just download and you're good to go. Natively.
Will my old puzzle sets work?
Yes! Any puzzle sets made in The Mad Monks' Revenge or The Legend Returns in the last 23 years will work just fine.
What language are you writing the game in?
The game is written in C# and powered by the excellent FNA engine (also written in C#).
New builds are uploaded every weekend. The current build is
17.7.23. You can download the game for Windows, MacOS and Linux.
