Once again, the terrible Bungeling Empire has attacked. This time, they are invading the innocent land of Lelandria to steal its precious (and plentiful!) gold reserves. You alone have the strength, courage and intellect to stand in the way!
A Lode Runner Story contains an "open world" single player story mode that contains more than 100 levels, along with dozens of extra "puzzle" levels -- these levels require you to solve advanced digging puzzles -- and "challenge" rooms -- these levels place you in dangerous scenarios against the bad guys of the world.
The game also offers a series of levels that you can play with your friends cooperatively. Some level sets demand that you work together to collect all of the gold!
