Be prepared, my skilled players, for it is time for some SPYING action!
Put in your best tux, grab your gun, your gadgets and go steal super secrets from the bad guys building!

This week we tackle another excellent Micronics port for the NES, Elevator Action!

The rules for this one are very simple:

  • Play till you lose your first life.
  • Pause the game once the game restarts and take your picture.
  • You are allowed to use the enemy AI exploit:
    • Entering the bottom elevator without entering all the red doors returns the game to an earlier point in the level and avoids the enemy speed-up 
  • Highest score wins
  • Participation: 3,000
  • GENRE: Arcade

The contest ends Sunday, 08/22/21 at 11 PM VGS time.  Your user name MUST be written or typed on a piece of paper and be in the picture for your score to be valid.  The entire TV screen, or computer monitor if you are playing on an emulator, MUST be in the picture for the score to be valid.  No partial screenshots will be considered or accepted.  No screenshots by hitting "print screen" on a computer will be allowed.  You must take a picture of your computer monitor.  There may be instances where this will be acceptable, but it will be at the discretion of myself and the contest organizers.  Also, the use of turbo controllers is forbidden, as well as any cheat codes, Game Genies, slow motion functions, or save states if playing on an emulator.  Also, we will only be using NTSC systems for the contests.  The use of PAL systems will NOT be allowed.  Good luck everyone and have fun.

I love this game, but I've never played it strictly for points.  I also adore the little graphic in the first post!

Anyway, reserved for SCORE! 😛

SCORE EDIT - I haven't really had much time this week for games, so this is probably it for me:

14,200

Why don’t ya just post a score to reserve your score ? 😝

Because that would take a bit of time and I probably won't be getting around to it today, and sometimes these threads catch fire with a ton of posts, and I really hate having to find my post every time I need to update my score when it's not on the first page.

How's that for a longwinded excuse? 😛

Looks like enemies get more aggressive and start ducking while shooting if you try to point press for too long. I thought maybe there was need for a rule change but no. There is a de facto timer.

 

I was going to say the same thing. If you find a safe spot, you can just camp out and keep racking points. I got over 35k before I got bored. If I get time this week, I might see how far I can push it.

There are safe spots? There might be need for a rule change then. Maybe progress over score.

I tried just ducking and shooting on the first platform and it worked until the enemies started to duck and shoot.

I was doing the same thing, you just have to try not to get shot!
