Lode Runner arriving on XBLA tomorrow

Yours for 800 of Microsoft's Points.

An all-new version of 1983 classic Lode Runner will appear on Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow.

""Lode" up on the fun," advises the press release, promising 3D visuals, 2D action, 220 levels and six play modes.

It's all about running, climbing and blasting blocks, outsmarting enemies and grabbing the gold. Up to four players can play tag via Xbox Live and you can create and share your own levels online.

"For long-time fans or first-time Runners, it’s the mother-lode!" says the press release.

A online tournament is taking place this Saturday between 12pm and 3pm PDT - that's 8pm and 11pm GMT. You'll be able to play with developers from Tozai and SouthEnd Interactive, who produced the game.
