Lode Runner for Roku

Remake of the classsic game Lode Runner (1983) for Roku streaming devices and TVs

Lode Runner for Roku

About the Project

I developed this project during the nights and weekends of September/2016, after finishing the port of Prince of Persia for Roku as part of my studies about BrightScript 2D gamming API.

There are six selectable sprite modes from the classic computer ports:

  • Apple II (original version)
  • Commodore 64,
  • Atari 8 bits
  • Sinclair ZX Spectrum
  • NES

Note: The sound effects are from the Commodore 64 port.

The player can also select from five different versions of the game (level sets):

  • Classic (150 levels)
  • Championship (50 levels)
  • Professional (150 levels)
  • Revenge (17 levels)
  • LR Fan Book (66 levels). The level sets, guards AI and some assets were converted from the Javascript Lode Runner project by Simon Hung.

The also has a Custom Level Editor where you can create up to 15 personalized maps.
