S-Tribute Return Elevator Action will launch digitally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam on December 1, publisher City Connection announced. English, French, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese language options are supported.
Here’s an overview of the game, via City Link:
Elevator Operation Return first released as a 2D side scrolling shooter game by TAITO in 1995. This game is a remake of the home console version released by Bing in 1997.
Select one of three special characters—Kart Bradfield, Edie Burret, or Jad the Taff—and let the game begin. Grab the data from all the red doors and escape the stage.
After completing all the stages, players can also play the first game of the series, Lifting Practice (single player only).
- Press the fire button near an enemy to initiate close combat with bare hands instead of shooting. Make continuous attacks by pressing the shoot button twice while playing as Kart, or by pressing the shoot button and then continuously pressing the jump button while playing as Edie or Jad. The score is doubled when an enemy is defeated with unarmed attacks.
- There are several targets to shoot in each stage. Some of the items are hidden, while others turn and destroy the enemies. You can also score by breaking objects in pieces, so break multiple objects. Disabling fluorescent lights or switchboards will extinguish the lights on the floor for a long time, doubling the selected points.
- Elevators can be used for movement and attacks. Throw a small weapon into the elevator, then move it to remotely attack the enemy, or use the elevator to crush enemies. Be careful, as it can also damage the player’s appearance.
