The developer of one of the most popular platform games of the early 1980’s has passed away. Lode Runner was an overnight success for Douglas E. Smith and had heavy competition from several publishers after he submitted the game for evaluation. The game originally was developed on the Apple II and became so popular that it has appeared on many of the later gamin platforms.
His latest incarnations of the Lode Runner game were being published through Tozai Games.
