Officially licensed from Tozai Games, four titles from the Lode Runner series will be added to the iiRcade Store, including the original arcade version
CHICAGO - iiRcade Inc., the ultimate connected arcade machine that allows gamers of all ages to play their favorite retro and modern games in arcade style at home, is adding four officially licensed Lode Runner games from Tozai, Inc. to the iiRcade platform.
The four games from the Lode Runner series that will soon be available in the iiRcade Store include: Lode Runner (arcade version), Lode Runner The Bungeling Strikes Back (arcade version), Lode Runner The Golden Labyrinth (arcade version) and Lode Runner Escape from Empire (arcade version).
In 1983, Lode Runner was released for Apple II, Atari 8-bit, Commodore 64, VIC-20, PC and a year later, it became the first home console game to be released as a coin-operated arcade cabinet. The game's frantic action takes place in maze-like static levels where a single player dodges enemies while running and climbing to reach and claim stacks of gold.
“We’re extremely excited to bring the original arcade version of Lode Runner to iiRcade,” said Jong Shin, founder & CEO of iiRcade. “Lode Runner is an all-time classic, both on early 80’s home consoles as well as in the arcade. iiRcadians should really enjoy this nostalgic series.”
