Lode Runner games

Group Description

First named Kong, then retitled to Miner before adopting its final moniker, Douglas E. Smith's Lode Runner inspired a series of games that followed the originals mix of action and puzzle solving.

The original story of Lode Runner had the player controlling a Galactic commando who was fighting against the tyrannical Bungeling Empire by raiding their treasury and reclaiming all the gold they had stolen. Later games in the series usually feature the character Jake Peril as he fights against the Mad Monks.

Most of the games in the series have gameplay that typically revolves around the player collecting gold on multi-storied platforms while running away from their pursuers. Players can usually set traps for their enemies by digging holes into the ground thus temporarily capturing them in pits.
