In Elevator Action the player controls “Otto” – Secret Agent 17. The player guides “Otto” through high-rise buildings, collecting secret documents from rooms with red doors and shooting what enemy agents he can’t avoid. “Otto” also has full control over the elevators when he is riding them, and he can use the elevators to squash any enemy agents who get in the elevator’s path. Once “Otto” has collected all the secret documents from a building he proceeds to the basement garage and escapes in his car.
The control scheme for Elevator Action is pretty basic – a four-way joystick, a fire button and a jump button. “Otto” can fire while standing or crouching, and he can jump to avoid enemy fire and to jump kick enemy agents.
Elevator Action was produced in 1983 by Taito.
