What Gamespot Users have to say about Elevator Action

  • Rating:9

    Such a simple concept yet incredibility addictive game.

    There seems to be a common theme before the release of Elevator Action back in 1983 – that is crap, crap, Pac Man clones, Space Invaders clones, crappy arcade ports and did I mentioned crap? In all seriousness, th... Read Full Review

    This brings back good memories.

    Elevator Action is one of the games that everyone should try at least once. With the modern games being release people are moving away from what gaming was once 20 years back. The game was simple, but not as easy as it s... Read Full Review

    If you played this game in the arcades in the '80s, take a look and see. If not, you're not missing anything.

    Back in the mid 1980s, arcade culture was in full swing. Some of the biggest franchises got their start there...Donkey Kong, Mario Bros., and Pac Man all trace their origins back to those heady, quarter-poppin' days. O... Read Full Review

    Elevator action is a great port of the arcade game.

    When it debuted in arcades in 1983, Taito's Elevator Action had you in control of a secret agent, who's job was to infiltrate a building loaded with secret documents, while avoiding opposing agents either via evasion or ... Read Full Review

    For such a simple game, Elevator Action manages have challenge and an inherent arcade feiling.
