    First things first, many remakes to older games and retro styled HD games usually will be enjoyed by fans of the orginal games. Like, Megaman 9, Bubble Bobble, and Bomberman to name a few. If you are in any way a fan of the orginal Elevator Action, you will most likely find this game to be really fun and a great upgrade from the previous game.

Like, Megaman 9, Bubble Bobble, and Bomberman to name a few. If you are in any way a fan of the orginal Elevator Action, you will most likely find this game to be really fun and a great upgrade from the previous game. I never played the Saturn one, but this is nothing like that one. In fact, they even include the original game with this one, just in case you don't own a copy. Anyway back to the review of sorts. Fans of the previous game like me, will instantly love how you can still squash, shoot, and knock lights down on the enemies. This game adds new elements to make it feel fresh, with things like door kills, knockouts, bombs, switches, and even medals to earn. There is a story, but that's not why you'd buy the game, so it's not really important. The game also has a high replay value, in which it has leaderboards, medals to earn, 4-player co-op, and the orginal game. I really wish they had the Saturn one so I could finally play and own that one, but oh well. I would have to rate this game an 8/10 for fans of the previous game, and a 7/10 for newcomers. The only flaws being the jump is much faster now than the old game had, which can be both good and bad, and the game could've had more graphical sprucing. Expand

    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.
