Load Runner
« on: November 04, 2016, 03:30:20 AM »
Don't know why but late this afternoon driving home Lode Runner on my mighty C64 popped into my head and tonight I loaded it up on my real C64 & wow just wow the gameplay is just so simple, so seamlessly fluid & the stages really make you think to escape:hammer:

I don't know why they never released an Amiga version when the A1000 came out but I do recall playing it in late 80s or early 90s but the gameplay was worse than on the C64 for me.

I adore Load Runner! I could never get past level 11 (maybe a couple of times) even on my C64 though! :hammer: Played it constantly (along with Castles of Dr. Creep - I really wish CoDC would get ported to Amiga)! I still use the Wico bat joystick when playing Load Runner!

There is an Amiga version here...

Also, Ice Runner is very good and has a WHDLoad version here...

Oh, and there's Mine Runner! Excellent version too!

Here's an LHA of Mine Runner... (will install to HDD)  http://main.aminet.net/game/jump/minerunner18.lha

Here's a nice StrategyWiki for Load Runner
http://strategywiki.org/wiki/Lode_Runner

Hope one of these gets you back that great Lode Runner thrill again! :lol:

It was Jumpman for the C64 that was addictive for me.  :)

Someone a while back ported Lode Runner to the Lynx, runs fantastically too!  It was always one of my favorites on the Atari 8bit.  Jumpman and Boulderdash as well.

Good times.  In a lot of ways the simple game play was what made them addictive.  Not sure if it's due to getting older and so having less time, or they just weren't as good as they were back then, but for the most part I almost rather play 8bit games over a large majority of newer ones.

Lode Runner's Rescue... anyone play that one?  

http://www.mobygames.com/game/lode-runners-rescue Kind of 3D Lode Runner... But, apparently there IS a Lode Runner 3D on the N64!  (even though it looks more like actual 2D in a 3D environment.)

Was H.E.R.O ever released for Amiga? I loved it on c64. Wouldn't mind playing it now on my a1200

I think Hunchback was called Quasimoto on the Atari (at least theversion I had was, that game was a pain...)

Doesn't look like H.E.R.O. made it onto the 16/32 bit systems.  http://www.mobygames.com/game/hero  Though there is a guy working on his HERO engine for the Atari Jaguar

http://atariage.com/forums/topic/258541-hero-3d-engine-on-atari-jaguar-at-60-fps/

Though very early stages.... the game was fantastic, can't remember if there ever was an end.
