iiRcade Takes Gaming To the New Level with ELEVATOR ACTION Series
by Scott Ledingham on Aug 03, 2021
Both ELEVATOR ACTION and ELEVATOR ACTION RETURNS will soon be available in the iiRcade Game Store.
ELEVATOR ACTION is a platform-shooter game released in arcades by TAITO in 1983. The player assumes the role of Agent 17, a spy infiltrating a 30-story building filled with elevators and enemy agents who emerge from closed doors. The goal is to collect secret documents from specially marked rooms, then escape the building.
“Based on its immense popularity, we’re confident ELEVATOR ACTION will be a hit with our iiRcade family,” said Jong Shin, founder & CEO of iiRcade.
The sequel, ELEVATOR ACTION RETURNS, was released in the arcades in 1994, this time featuring a much more gritty and realistic setting. RETURNS retains the elevator-based feature from the original, but expands the gameplay system and replaces the spy motif with a new scenario involving a paramilitary team fighting against a terrorist group.
