Lode Runner Twins is a cute platform game by T&E Soft and based on Brøderbund's popular franchise. The player controls a young knight (or a priestess) whose mission is to explore all the magic caves located underneath the kingdom's castle. Their first task is to retrieve all the candies stolen by some grey little devils. Just like with any traditional Lode Runner game, each level features multi-level platforms connected with ladders and horizontal ropes. Interestingly, the game can either be played in full-screen (press Select) or with a head-up-display taking half of the screen-space. Our heroes can also dig holes using their magic powers and trap (or slowdown) the various monsters wondering around each area. However, foes only disappear if the hole happens to collapse on them, and they will then automatically reappear somewhere in the stage - but watch out, players can also fall in these holes and they will be unable to climb back out. When all the candies (and various items) are collected, a ladder appears somewhere in the level and leads to the exit. Lode Runner Twins features several play modes: Story gets the player to explore countless stages (10 areas and a total of 100 stages)m and the game's progress can be saved using a simple password system, Free Play gives tons of levels to explore in no specific order, and finally the game also features an intense horizontal split-screen two-player battle mode.

Lode Runner Twin is a fun little platform game. Graphics and animations are cute and well made. But stages are a bit too linear, and difficulty is very unbalanced. The enemy's AI is awfully basic, and the opponents often just blindly follow the player around each stage without much wits. And this can become really tricky, especially when they happen to get stuck at the bottom of a ladder you desperately try to climb on. Then, they never really die and always regenerate, and they often come back to life quicker than you can kill them off... Despite these annoying flaws, Lode Runner Twins is surprisingly fun and somewhat addictive, but do not expect anything groundbreaking. The two-players battle mode can be fun and the password system really helps with replayability. All in all, Lode Runner Twin is average, but it is a refreshing update of an all time classic.
