In ELEVATOR ACTION, Agent 17, code name "Otto", is on a top-secret mission that'll have everyone coming out from undercover to play!
"Otto" must sneak through a heavily guarded, top-security enemy defense building to steal secret government documents hidden within. He must make his way cautiously down through the building by way of elevators and escalators and pick up all the files hidden behind the red doors in order to make it to the getaway car in the garage below.
Enemy agents, armed and lying in wait behind the blue doors, try to ambush "Otto" and put an end to this legendary masterspy. Only well-planned strategies, bullet-dodging, quick-on-the-draw accuracy and black belt karate prowess can get him through. Shooting out the lights and knocking out the enemy during the blackout will chalk up more points. Even the great "Otto" has his "ups and downs", but these can be controlled with the joystick whenever he's inside the elevator.
