|What Is It?|
Lode Runner is the calculator reincarnation of a classic action/puzzle game. It involves negotiating a complex level involving ladders platforms and enemies to collect coins.
1. Unzip the file LODE.ZIP into any directory, usually your Link Software's directory (e.g. C:\WINLINK).
2. Run your Link Software and send the file LODE.83G to your TI-83/83+.
3. Run the program prgmLODE to begin.
4. Visit SiCoDe's website at http://sicode.ticalc.org/ for news and program updates.
The point of Lode Runner is to collect all of the coins in the level without running into the enemies. To help you do this you have the ability to shoot holes in the ground. You can only shoot one hole at a time, and only in the ground. The enemy will fall into the hole if he walks over it. If you are in the hole when it regenerates, you will die. If the enemy is in the hole when it regenarates, it will climb back out. If the enemy is in the hole, then you can walk over the hole without being hurt. The two letters at the top of each level, are the passwords, type the password in at the appropiate screen to jump to that level.
I get a memory full error: Reset your calculator then reload Lode Runner.
I don't know how to transfer the program to my calc: Read the instructions that came with your link software.
