Mad Monks' Revenge: Release 22.09

Release notes for build 22.09. This build updates game libraries and fixes some minor bugs. You can download the build here (Windows, macOS, Linux).

2021 wasn't the best year for a lot of people, me included. A week after the March 7th update, my house was flooded with 50cm of water throughout. Finding a builder proved impossible which left me to do it all, hiring trades to do the trickier stuff (such as plumbers, roofers, electricians).

The 21.03 update has been going strong all this time with only a couple of bugs reported. Is this project dead? Nope! With any luck, I should be back into Lode Runner a couple of days a week. What's planned for this year on Lode Runner?

  • bug fixes from the last 18+ months
  • marketplace to upload/browse/download puzzles from within the game
  • more efforts to share core codebase between MMR and LR2
