Great, I still love this game so much. I even can tell a little story about it. Back in the day, beginning of 80s, in my hometown was always a fair twice a year for 2 weeks, and we all loved to visit the arcades, it was even before the C64 was released, so we had nothing to play with at home, except a Phillips Videopac G7000, but that was nothing compared to the arcade games.

The guys running the arcades, launched sometimes a competition on several machines, the one who got the highest score on a game, won a watch when the competition finished. I'm talking about a watch out of the claw machines, which were also gathered around in the arcades, so basically worth nothing.

As I was quite good in Elevator Action, and it was included in the competition, I ended up by having the highest score in the end, and was proud to win a watch, that was quite a highlight in my gaming career :D

Cool story!  It may have been a cheap watch, but you still won!  :)
