Gold Runner 99

Anyone tried this one out. It looks like a good lode runner clone, and only 99cents.

Okay, since no one else has tried it, I decided to since I loved Lode Runner back on my Apple IIc and on my Commodore 64. This game is as close as it gets to bringing Lode Runner back, it is a really good game. You can choose to use the on screen controls which they call keyboard or use the accelerometer with dig hole keys on the screen. The one thing it needs to make it a great game is that while using accelerometer the dig control bottons need to be bigger. If using the on screen controls all the controls need to be bigger. They should use semi transparent controls over game board to make the controls work the best. With that simple change this game would be great.

A solid update the best lode runner adaptation yet to appear on the iPhone platform. Get it before it disappears like iloderunner did.

To add to my previous review, the update has done the game justice. The buttons are now big enough to use. The level editor really brings the lode runner spirit back. Now the game is a great buy for those that like Lode Runner.
