"Lode Runner" is a puzzle game where you must avoid enemies and gain gold. There are 150 different puzzles, with each one succedingly getting more challenging. Alexey Pajitnov, the designer of the world famous "Tetris", long cited "Lode Runner" to be his favorite puzzle game.
"Lode Runner" is also famous for the debut of "Bomberman" as the enemies. Here is a quote from Wikipedia that gives more information:
"The end screen to Bomberman for the NES notes that the original White Bomberman has turned human and hints at his appearance in another game, with the Lode Runner behind him. In the Japanese version, the reference is more direct: "Congratulations - Bomber Man becomes Runner - See you again in Lode Runner.""
Although the NES version is good, my recommendation would be "Lode Runner: The Legend Returns," which is a 1994 Sierra remake with enhanced tools and graphics. Also, the 1995 title "Lode Runner Online: Mad Monks' Revenge", a sequel which supports online play, is also worth picking up.
The video game website IGN rated this title as the 857h greatest game on their top 100 NES games of all time.
(For those looking for great unknown NES/Famicom games, you simply MUST play "Moon Crystal", a criminally unknown Famicom exclusive. The graphics are astounding with cutscenes that even outdo "Ninja Gaiden", amazing music, in depth gameplay, and a fantastic storyline. Absolutely amazing! Had this been released in the US for the NES, I feel it would be as revered as the other heavy hitters in the NES canon)
