    I haven't played this one for awhile, one of my favourite games.
    It's a super game. The music is as mental as any Taito game , I wonder where they come up with these crazy tunes and sounds. Zoo Keeper and Time Tunnel have some zany sounds too, both also from Taito.

    Ask your friends to play in MGLXLI. Don't procrastinate, participate ...

    I never played this much in the arcades, it was one of the older machines by the time I came across it.

    Seen the title around for years but never played it; only a little of the C64 conversion. Lots to learn here. Happy to beat the default score at this point.
    There's definitely some wacky hijinks to be had...

    At Westworld on George St in Sydney, in the summer of 1984/1985, I remember this game quite well. Westworld was factory owned by Taito in Japan. They setup in Australia as they had in the USA. They were one of the few companies that followed the copyright act and did not use bootleg boards. So they followed the company line, and had an Elevator Action that was quite popular in those days. It was a Taito game of course!

    In fact it was no.10 in the Popularity Equipment Poll of Australia at that time. By the way, Taito Australia also had offices at 62 Gracie St, North Melbourne and 76 Abbotsford Rd, Mayne in Queensland. Did any of you go to those sites back then or do you know of anyone who maybe has? Some photos from that time would also be great ...

    Elevator Action was in all of the arcades in Sydney, including Timezone and Orbit 600. Now it's up again in the MGL ...

    It takes quite a lot of working out and practice to do well in this game. The enemy agents have three stances that make bullet evasion quite an art form. One mistake and there is red paint all over your works ...
    Beating the default score is a good achievement ...
