They will fix it. You can be assured about that.

If there's an iap to unlock the full game or something like that I'll be happy. I've been playing and I really like the game.

It seems they did give it away. I mean if it's a mistake it is an awful long and overlooked mistake. I would think this would definitely be corrected by now.
Also this is a lot of fun. The art and everything falls together really well.

Given what I've heard about Nexon's new management, I wouldn't be surprised if "making" this free was totally a mistake. At this point though, what can they do?

Best thing they could do is what Amazon writers do - use the first 300 levels to get people totally addicted to the game, so that when Lode Runner 2 comes out it's an insta-buy from the fan-base.

Downloaded it, just in case it wasn't suppose to be free.
Good old C64 days

I somehow managed to avoid this on various platforms back in the day, good to see what the fuss is about for free.

Daredevil Dennis next please!

I found this this morning while exploring around the iTunes Store.
Loving it. A little cramped on my iPhone. I kind of wish the joystick was a little bigger on my iPad Air 2.

I made the comment a month ago that lode runner 2 was one of my favs growing up and I wish they brought it to mobile, so this is nice to see!

I never played the first lode runner though so I've got nothing to directly compare this to... so while it looks nice in its own right it's got nothing compared to the art, theme and sound of lode runner 2!!

Still, it is fun and judging by the comments here the game opens up at level 28 so I guess I just need to keep playing and see if it grows on me.

This game is absolutely free. It's stated on app store. No IAP whatsoever

Lol wtf I had to laugh that the first female unlock's special ability is that she can climb poles faster... like damn. Not sure if that was intentional or just not thought through.

Regardless it is cool that different characters have different abilities, I'm so curious as to what kind of buffs the late game are going to have...

this updated version is fantastic.....however, the fact that to start the game you must be online sucks and takes away from the portability for me
