Lode Runner on Xbox Live Arcade

For those of you interested in Lode Runner for the Xbox Live Arcade, Xbox Live Gold Members will be able to experience a deal in which they get 33% off of the full price. Making the cost only equal 800 points for you, between the 14th and 20th of September.

If you've been following news of this game, then you know about the mistake Microsoft made with this game. They accidentally set the game to be 800 Microsoft Points instead of the full 1200 that it was originally set to be. So when it was raised, it understandably upset many gamers who were hoping to get the game. So this XBLA deal of the week may interest those of you annoyed by that little fiasco.

Sadly, Microsoft wasn't the one who suffered after increasing the price after eight hours, the developer, Tozai Games, were ultimately the one who suffered. Since it received fierce backlash for that little mistake. It is a game of great content and it has received many great reviews from those who played it. It is a game of style and great graphics, I think. Not only that, but the gameplay is solid and the animation is smooth. Not only that, but you can create your own levels and share it with your other friends over Xbox Live, potentially adding a wealth of replay value that otherwise wouldn't have been there without that option. A great thing to get if you are enjoying Free Xbox Live.

You can host Xbox Live matches with your levels, upload and download the content, or download some of the most valued content from the Lode Runner community. In it's original release, it was one of the first games to include a level editor. The game is now being released with revamped style, gameplay, and 3d graphics and levels. It features over 220 levels, endlessly spawning enemies, and intense co-op challenges.

If you're looking to get a new Xbox Live Arcade game, than Lode Runner is something that may entertain you if you can manage to get your friends to play it as well.
