Power Play (Mar, 1990)
Alle Action-Strategen können Hyper Lode Runner sofort kaufen, allerdings sollten sie sich darauf gefaßt machen, daß das Spiel schon nach wenigen Levels höllisch schwer wird. Der “Suchteffekt“ ist garantiert.
Die GAMEBOY-Fassung dieses Oldies bietet gegenüber der Original-Apple-II-Version einiges mehr. So ist das Spielfeld jetzt um einiges größer, der Bidschirm scrollt in mehrere Richtungen, und ein einfach zu bedienendes Contstruction-Kit wurde ebenfalls implementiert. Nachteil des Construction-Kits ist allerdings die fehlende Abspeichermöglichkeit, mittels spez. Batterie oder so. Doch ansonsten bringt HYPER LODERUNNER den vollen Spielspaß, schon allein wegen des hohen Schwierigkeitsgrades.
Although the platform elements of the game are far behind the likes of Mario in the quality stakes, and the puzzle elements are hardly gonna rival Tetris, this is a simple, fun, little game. If you can find a copy somewhere I'd recommend it, but not having it in your collection isn't worth losing sleep over.
Nintendo Life (Feb 26, 2011)
The game has clear (though simple) visuals and audio that is basic but inoffensive. Digging for gold is a simple idea that makes for an easy to play title. However the tricky levels mean clearing anything other than the first few is something of a challenge. The lack of a save function for the level editor is a big disappointment and the difficulty of the main game can be off-putting, but persevere with it and Hyper Lode Runner can provide an enjoyable mental workout.
Decent game play and an edit mode are the strong points in this otherwise boring title.
