Originally released only in Japan on the PC Engine (TurboGrafx-16), Battle Lode Runner
is a sequel to Lode Runner
and its major draw is a 5 player mode. Players move around several platforms collecting gold. Various enemies inhabit the levels, and the player, armed with a drill, attempts to drill holes to capture the enemies. Unfortunately, this does not defeat the enemies, only disables them for a short time. After a few seconds, the enemies respawn and resume their chase of the player.
The five-player option was new to any incarnation of Lode Runner, and operates in a very similar manner to Bomberman
, except with hole drilling instead of bombing.
