Lode Runner on the 16-bit Atari ST is an interesting European take on this classic American platform game. It was developed by French company Loriciel in 1989 and may only have been released in France. Well, the only version I could find was in French.
Regardless, the Atari ST version is graphically very different to most other versions of Lode Runner, going for a more garish colour scheme.
The all important gameplay is still intact, though. In fact, I might go so far as to say that the Atari ST version of Lode Runner is one of the best – if not the best – version available. It’s very enjoyable to play, the controls are precise, and the editing screens are very easy to use too.
It’s worth noting that there was never an Amiga version of Lode Runner ever made, although it did appear on pretty much every other platform of note. At least from what I can tell. So this French ST version is the only one from that particular 16-bit era of video gaming history. It’s a really good one, though. So well worth a search-out.
