Assume the role again as Jake Peril as you journey in the Evil Empire taking treasure away from the evil Mad Monks. As with the original Lode Runner, gameplay involves moving around screens full of platforms and ladders collecting treasure.
This new version adds multiplayer play, with 150 levels to play on. The single-player game has the original levels plus 30 new ones. Many hazards not found in the original are added. The ability to create your own levels is also included.
