I'd never steal a game idea! Well... I mean... besides the one I'm
currently coding, which is from an old Compute! Gazette disk. Seriously
though, I wish I were more creative when it comes to conceptualizing unique
game ideas. In fact, the game I'm thinking about doing next is simply a
port of Lode Runner. (Clone Runner?)

Not sure if you're aware, but Eric Ball has been working on a Lode Runner-style game for the 2600, originally called Gold Digger but it now goes by the name Leprechaun. I think progress has been slowed by his foray into 7800 programming, but I get the impression he plans on continuing with it (I'm sure he can provide more info.. <grin>) You can read all about it here:

And here's a screenshot:
