Anyone tried the new Lode Runner on Xbox Live Arcade?

I've got the demo and it seems pretty good, but it's rather steep at 1200 points.

Yeah I bought it but haven't played that much yet, so couldn't really tell you if it was worth 1200 right now.

I'm a bit loathe to play 1200 points at the moment for it TBH....especially with Banjo Tooie being released this Wednesday....but Lode Runner's always been a guilty pleasure of mine so I won't rule out getting it in the future. Haven't tried the demo yet.

You might be better off saving your money Toxie, I think there's far better versions of Lode Runner around.

I wasn't overly impressed with the demo though I did only play it for a short time.

I think the 1200 price bracket is off putting. I resisted R-Type Dimensions for a while but I crumbled after playing the demo over and over again. I'm not getting the same pull to play the Lode Runner demo. That said if it was 800 I'd be more inclined to just give it a go.

I'm interested to hear what those that have the full version think.
