Elevator Action is one retro title that hasn't seen a whole lot of remakes over the years. Acting as a somewhat primitive forerunner to the modern stealth genre, the game tasks players with sneaking into a heavily guarded building, stealing secret documents and then escaping without being caught, shot or crushed under an elevator. The spy's life is not an easy one.
Taito and Square Enix's new PS3 exclusive Deluxe version doesn't add a huge amount of new stuff to this fundamentally simple formula, but classic games were always about improving your skills within straightforward mechanics rather than increasingly-complex techniques to remember. The new game does, however, feature a new four player multiplayer mode (alas, local play only) and the ability to unlock a variety of Taito memorabilia for retro enthusiasts to peruse.
The game is available worldwide today for $9.99 from PSN. Check out the official website to find out more.
