Another arcade classic finds a new form in 3D! And this time it's Lode Runner...

Lode Runner 2 is the sequel to the remake of Doug Smith's timeless classic. The game features 5 unique worlds where in each level you will try to collect all the gold without dying. Run, dig, climb, scale, fall, drob bombs and collect stuff!

Like in Jazz Jackrabbit 2, this sequel has also added a companion (Jane) to its main character (Jake Peril). They are identical in their capabilities --no special moves. Choose one of them and get into Lode Runner's new dimension!

Bonus content

If you ever looked into the CD of Lode Runner 2, you would probably find all the movies of the game in Quicktime format (including the final act and a bonus) and some of the levels from the game to edit with your level editor ("There are a few unsupported levels added to the CD at the last minute. These levels came from the members of the team and the lead QA member").
