Elevator Action isn’t top-quality NES gaming, but it is the best elevator-oriented action game ever made, so I suppose one could say, you can’t front on that.
Um destemido agente da lei percorre um edifício infestado por bandidos, pelo elevador ou pela escada. Cada facínora eliminado vale pontos.
It’s a challenging but
solid game with decent controls whose fun factor largely depends
upon fondness of the arcade game.
Elevator Action is a decent game for around ten minutes but then you'll probably get annoyed by the limited gameplay and stiff controls that are usually responsible for your deaths. The core mechanics are briefly enjoyable but more variety and polish was needed to make this an acceptable purchase, especially in 1987.
If you liked the arcade game, by all means run out and get this game. If you never played it and find it for a couple of bucks you'll be briefly entertained. If you don't have the great NES games yet, like Zelda, Castlevania, etc, get those first.
Elevator Action is a very basic arcade high score challenge. The key is that it's a fairly unique idea, and a fairly unique game. There's not much here for longevity, but it's a good contender for "this week's Solitaire replacement." Just don't let the boss, or the agents, catch you.
