Lode Runner - a personal story from a stranger
When I was a kid the computers were something rare and extraordinary. They were some kind of magic boxes containing the most interesting thing I'd ever seen - the computer games. Those days lode runner, digger, tetris, etc. were magic words. But of course, my access to these rare magic boxes was very limited. What a pity... But this is a long boring story, so go collect some gold.

I'm sure that almost every version of Lode Runner can be found on the Internet, and can be played using a virtualization software. I'm sure Douglas E. Smith didn't realize back in the 80's that the game he created (Lode Runner) will become so popular in time. The Tetris designer Alexey Pajitnov claimed that Lode Runner had been his favourite puzzle game for a long period of time.
Golden Runner - information for the online game update
The creator of Golden Runner (i.e. me) has never studied programming and the creation the game was pretty big challenge for him. Along with "Lode Runner" my other favourite games are "Tetris", "Digger" and "System Shock 2" and "World of Goo" from the new ones. Interesting fact is that I never managed to play Golden Runner and beat all the levels, but a lot of people did it without even dying.
