I pulled the direct link behind it from the file you get when visiting that link; https://web.archive.org/web/20171129092504if_/http://www.daggert.net/Folio/Programming/Presage/LodeRunner/Downloads/lro_install.zip

That should work fine I think.

@Omar007 Nice, though unfortunately that link doesn't actually directly serve the file, so I don't think it can be used in the PKGBUILD. I'm not really sure how to go about fixing that.

Source website seems to be gone but it can still be found on the Wayback Machine: https://web.archive.org/web/20171129092504/http://www.daggert.net/Folio/Programming/Presage/LodeRunner/Downloads/lro_install.zip

_install_dir is expanded within the PKGBUILD. The base path (up to $pkgname) should stay as a string with variables; encapsulate the value in single quotes '...'.

I worked with Todd at a company in the 90's. I'm sure he'd be cool with it. Even then he regarded it fondly almost like a student project. Hit him up in an email, you might be surprised at how into it he's be to see Loderunner live on in the Arch community. He's an awesome guy.

Improvement Suggestion: Make use of the XDG Base Directories.

Concretely this basically means install to "${XDG_DATA_HOME}/loderunner" instead of "~/.loderunner".
Replacing occurrences of "$HOME/.$pkgname" with "${XDG_DATA_HOME:-${HOME}/.local/share}/${pkgname}" should do it.

arch has to be an array:

arch=("any")

Website and download are provided by Todd Daggert, the Lead Programmer of the game, so I would call that "official abandonware". Leave a comment, if you think there still is a license problem.
