Cool! So the ROM isn't out there already? Double plus good.

Maybe Elevator Action will be found next!

Yes it is. All the Activision roms are out there.

Tempest hasn't reviewed a lot of things.  Don't let that shock you too much.

 

Has this been dumped?  Is the rom any different?  Activision protos tend to be on the bottom of my ToDo list because 99% of the time they're the same as the final version.

The rom does not appear to be any different, and played it for about 30 min comparing it to the standard cart.
