Hey! It’s the 100th Blow The Cartridge comic. That’s a good thing! Play some Commodore 64 to celebrate.

Elevator Action was the first arcade game I almost bought, it was looking lost and lonely at a second hand store for $250 and I had just gotten $250 that morning for some freelance work that took six months to get paid for. Could I blow it all on a game that I already owned a decent enough version on the Game Boy of?

It turns out I could,  and then chicken out just as I was handing the cash over since I realised I had no way of getting it home.

I like this game a bit, but man is it slow. I mean, it stars elevators for crying out loud, they’re not exactly known for their velocity.
