Title screen

Although a bonus you could only obtain by finishing the game in the previous version, you'll be able to play the original game Elevator Action (1p only) from the start in this version.


Elevator Action


Press the shoot button near an enemy to start close combat with bare hands instead of shooting. Make continuous attacks by pressing the shoot button twice when playing as Kart, or by pressing the shoot button then immediately pressing the jump button when playing as Edie or Jad. The score is doubled when an enemy is defeated with unarmed attacks.


There are many targets to shoot on each stage. Some items are hidden, and some roll and damage enemies. Points can also be scored by breaking items in stages, so break many items. Destroying fluorescent lights or switchboards will put out the lights on a floor for a period of time, during which points scored are doubled.


Elevators can be used for movement, as well as attacks. Throw a sub-weapon in an elevator, then move it to make a remote attack on an enemy, or use the elevator to crush enemies. Be careful, as it's also possible to harm the player character.
