Another arcade classic finds a new form in 3D! And this time it's Lode Runner... Lode Runner 2 is the sequel to the remake of Doug Smith's timeless classic.

Like in Jazz Jackrabbit 2, this sequel has also added a companion (Jane) to its main character (Jake Peril). They are identical in their capabilities --no special moves. Choose one of them and get into Lode Runner's new dimension!

Players can play as a woman or a man, named Jake and Jane Peril according to the manual, but the player's default name is Digmo (which is changeable). The goal is to collect gold to advance to the next level, avoiding the Mad Monks along the way. However, instead of the usual sidescroller, players are able to move in six different directions on a freeform map (accounting for falling and going up and down ladders). There are separate levels designed for cooperation, as well as Deathmatch in multiplayer mode.
