Tower Runner is FREE! (normally $1.99)

For those who remember (and liked) Lode Runner from the old PC/NES days, like me..

It has good ratings so far, and deserves them. Very much like the original Lode Runner with the 3-D tower aspect of Nebulous or Sir Lovealot, etc. The swipe controls work well, and it's a true improvement on a classic game.

I installed it. Suprisingly it's really a must-have free games!

Hm, jerky, unresponsive and naff controls. Not my cup of tea!

Really liking this, but the controls don't feel quite right. Have to play a bit more and find the real thread for this to comment. The main point is this is a great download for folks who remember Lode Runner in all its incarnations over the past couple of decades. Grab it while it's free. Got to play some more and leave a review with useful comments soon.

Anyone having trouble with the controls, switch to Swipe Pro in the menu. It's vastly, enormously better. Brilliant game.

Initially having the trouble with the control but I thought it was due to my clumsy skill. Seems like a controls bugs really exist. But it's still well worth to play and get fun.

I've been looking for a Lode Runner-type game. I'll give this a try.

Anyone recommend any other games similar to Lode Runner?
