    I am huge fan of the original and the short of it is that the original is fun and this game is not. This game is really a puzzle stealth action game. You can play it like an action game like the original Elevator Action but you won't get the gold stars and it will be too easy to be fun. It really wants you play it like a stealth action game however the mechanics are terrible. You areI am huge fan of the original and the short of it is that the original is fun and this game is not. This game is really a puzzle stealth action game. You can play it like an action game like the original Elevator Action but you won't get the gold stars and it will be too easy to be fun. It really wants you play it like a stealth action game however the mechanics are terrible. You are never told what constitutes as being spotted and it never gives and indicator that you have been spotted. Often times you finish a level expecting a gold only to be told you were spotted sometime. The levels are sometimes long so it is frustrating to be spotted at the very end. Sometimes it just seems like luck and there is no strategy. I am not easily frustrated but this game frustrated me. This game is not fun and certainly NOT Elevator Action. Expand

    I played the original a lot. It was fun, had some interesting play mechanics, a certain charm to the graphics, odd sound effects, and great music.

    The "Deluxe" edition is missing most of these things. This game only has passing similarity to the original in the most important department, and that is feel. It just doesn't feel fun to play. The original is still more fun, even though it is

    My review score isn't lower because the game at least functions. See Assault Rigs for the kind of game I would give a zero.

    Elevator Action Deluxe doesn't break any new ground, but it is a loving homage to one of the earliest action games. Here you'll find fifty unique stages of platforming puzzles, tricky labyrinths and increasingly difficult enemies. Even if the visuals won't blow you away, the game retains the spark that made the 1983 arcade game so much fun!

    There's much more exciting elevator action you could be having. [Nov 2011, p.117]

    Do yourself and the industry a favour and seek out the original.
