Elevator Action Returns S-Tribute will launch digitally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC via Steam on December 1, publisher City Connection has announced. It will support English, French, Spanish, Japanese, Korean and traditional Chinese language options.
Here’s an overview of the game, via City Connection:
Elevator Action Returns was originally published as a 2D side-scrolling shooter by TAITO in 1995. This game is a remake of the home console version published by Bing in 1997.
Choose one of three special forces members – Kart Bradfield, Edie Burret or Jad the Taff – then start the game. Grab data from all the red doors, then escape the stage.
When each stage is cleared, players will also be able to play the first game in the series, Action of Elevator (single player only).
- Press the fire button near an enemy to initiate close combat with bare hands instead of shooting. Perform continuous attacks by pressing the fire button twice when playing as Kart, or by pressing the fire button and immediately pressing the jump button when playing as Edie or Jad. The score is doubled when an enemy is defeated with unarmed attacks.
- There are many targets to shoot on each stage. Some items are hidden, and some roll and damage enemies. Points can also be earned by breaking items in stages, so break lots of items. Destroying fluorescent lights or switch panels will turn off the lights on a floor for a period of time, during which points earned are doubled.
- Lifts can be used for movement, as well as attacks. Throw a subweapon into an elevator, then move it to make a ranged attack on an enemy, or use the elevator to crush enemies. Be careful, because it is also possible to damage the player.
