Since the game was named one of “The Greatest Games of All Time” by GameSpot. Lode Runner was created way back in 1983 by Doug Smith. All while he was a student at the University of Washington. The game was not only an award-winning bestseller, but also a significant milestone that influenced many in the video game industry. Alexey Pajitnov, creator of Tetris, said of the game, “My favorite for many, many years. Every level was a real puzzle with its own mechanics. Its own dynamics, its own kind of solution. … I can’t imagine any other game with such inventive and unusual design.”
In a tribute to Smith after his death in 2014, US Gamer editor-in-chief Jeremy Parish commented, “[He] created one of the most innovative formative works of the medium. A game that managed to transcend international boundaries. And become a beloved classic among American PC gamers and Japanese console fanatics alike.”
