More On: Lode Runner Legacy

Lode Runner has been around for a long time, since the early 80s in fact. It's an interesting type of puzzle game where you have to grab gold and avoid enemies, but you're not entirely defenseless. You can also blast holes in the floors to trap enemies and allow you to pass by them safely to get you out of tight spots. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, you'll be happy to know that Tozai Games is bringing the series to the Switch this spring with Lode Runner Legacy.

Lode Runner Legacy will retain the classic elements that made the original games enjoyable, but will also feature a brand new two-player mode where two friends can play together offline using two Joy-Cons. The mode will consist of puzzles where the two players must work together to reach gold that is impossible for a single person to get on their own. The new Craft Mode will allow players to create their own original levels, items, and characters that they can share online with players all over the world.

In all there will be three hundred levels for players to clear that includes one hundred fifty original Lode Runner levels in Classic Mode as well as several hidden levels for players to uncover, and that's not counting the levels you can play created by other players.
