Bad news everybody!

Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

CD-rip version
Lode Runner On-Line: The Mad Monks' Revenge is the new and improved version of Lode Runner: The Legend Returns. Developed and released in 1995 by Presage (now Human Code), makers of The Legend Returns and published by Sierra, it is basically the same game as its predecessor, but with some new features and additional levels. The most notable new feature is the ability to play a 2-player game over a network connection, which is incredibly addictive, especially if you have a willing friend (read: victim) on the other end of the phone line. Other new features are regenerating bombs, disappearing turf, and "personalized" items that can only be used by one of the two players.

It is unfortunate that Sierra decided to name the game Lode Runner On-Line, as this has probably led many people to believe that this is an on-line-only game (similar to Ultima On-Line for example). This is not true; in fact it has every feature that Legend Returns has, and many more. In addition to multiplayer modes, there are more devious levels and more varied background graphics and tile sets that make the level editor much more robust and fun to design new levels with. Overall, if you enjoy Legend Returns, you'll love Lode Runner On-Line at least twice as much. And best of all, Todd Daggert, the lead programmer of this gem, put it up for free download on his Lode Runner Online page in 2002. Two thumbs up, way up!
