Computer Gaming World reported that the animated characters in Lode Runner were "borrowed" from Choplifter, an earlier Brøderbund title. Smith claims the characters were not borrowed, but because the characters are only 7x10 pixels, there are inevitable cosmetic similarities.
Brøderbund referred to the game's opponents as members of the Bungeling Empire, enemies common to Choplifter, the Lode Runner series, and Raid on Bungeling Bay.
GameSpot named Lode Runner as one of the "Greatest Games of All Time".
