"Lode Runner is an arcade action maze puzzle game where you must collect all the gold scattered about to progress to the next stage. Climb ladders and ropes and avoid enemies trying to chase you down. Your signature move in the Lode Runner games is a drill used to break a single block to the left and right of you. You can then trap enemies in the holes or fall through them to reach other parts of the maze. Drilling holes also has a bit of a puzzle element to them, as you must be careful not to fall into a hole you can't get out of. Drilled blocks will regenerate over time, so you don't want to be trapped or you'll lose a life. New kinds of blocks on the Xbox version will keep you on your toes."
