Hyper Lode Runner is a video game for the Nintendo Game Boy.


Bandai released Hyper Lode Runner for Game Boy in February 1990. It was based on Lode Runner, a very popular home computer game, which was released in 1983 by Broderbund.


The graphics are actually updated from the original, and have bigger sprites with a Japanese anime feel compare to the original. As a result, the visible playing area is limited and the game has to scroll, while the original Lode Runner featured the entire level on a single screen. Upon clearing the screen a kusudama opens up and drops streamers on Lode Runner.


The theme music is different from that found in the computer version. It is in stereo, if headphones are used. The sound effects are basic, and functional, in that they alert the player to what is needed.
