Broderbund Software's classic game of climbing, jumping, and drilling receives a more modern makeover with Lode Runner 2. As in the original, the goal is to gather as much gold as possible while traversing a series of multi-tiered, maze-like areas guarded by enemies. Unlike the original, the action is now played from an isometric viewpoint and features a choice of two characters: Jake or Jane Peril. Avoid being captured by the mysterious, "mad" monks while using an assortment of power-ups to complete over 150 increasingly challenging levels. Lode Runner 2 also includes a level editor and eight-player support via LAN or modem. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
