Lode Runner was one of those games that seemingly every Apple 2 owner I knew had a copy of, and it was a big deal back in the day. Did the Apple 2 come bundled with a bunch of games or was the Apple 2 piracy scene just the same five games over and over again?

I didn’t get super into Lode Runner until the Game Boy version came out, and man I sunk a stupid amount of hours into it. One of the cool things was that it came with a level editor and we made seriously hardcore Lode Runner levels that no man should ever be made subject to. Medieval torture was nicer than the true bastardtry we inflected upon anyone close enough for us to hand the Game Boy to.

In short, Lode Runner was OK and more games should come with level editorPCs.
