Lode Runner for Roku
Remake of the classsic game Lode Runner (1983) for Roku streaming devices and TVs
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,
- IBM-DOS CGA,
- Atari 8 bits
- Sinclair ZX Spectrum
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)
The also has a Custom Level Editor where you can create up to 15 personalized maps.
