Apple Games recently posted a new game article featuring Lode Runner for iPod. The game brings the action puzzle adventure of the classic game to Apple's iPod multimedia devices. Apple's article includes an overivew of the game's features as well as a list of tips and tricks for success.

Begin your underground adventure with 50 levels of strategic action at standard difficulty before moving to the 60 levels found between the expert and master modes. In puzzle modeís 20 levels, robots wonít besiege you, but the gold is fiendishly difficult to recover, putting your strategic thinking skills to the test.

If youíd rather try an altogether different sort of challenge, check out gold rush mode, in which you race through 5,000 or 10,000 yards of floors and ladders, grabbing as much gold as you can and avoiding robots along the way to your final destination. Just donít fall behind or drop off the bottom of the screen. Thereís also an endless option, if you donít want a finish line.

This latest incarnation of Lode Runner builds on a long history stretching back to 1983 and its initial release on the Apple II, as well as other home computers of that era. It has attracted legions of fans along the way, including Tetris creator Alexei Pajitnov, who has said of it: ďI consider it a real puzzle game. That was my favorite for many, many years. Itís such a good combination of dynamic stuff, the finger-work, and real planning and puzzle-solving Ö I canít imagine any other game with such inventive and unusual design.Ē
