I was watching this old news series on video games and they mentioned that Tatio was making a game called Toasters and Chainsaws. Does anyone know what this is or any history on the game? Prototypes? Someone said it was renamed Elevator Action later.

I've seen the video but haven't seen or heard that game anywhere else.  Not even MAME has it listed, so I guess they scrapped the idea.

Neat.. I thought all of the Taito stuff was from Japan and never realized they did any development in the US.

 

Kind of funny they showed a clip of Wild Western there.. but if that's the time frame, that's pretty early on and there's probably not a huge amount of Taito games from that period. I'm thinking things like Front Line and stuff.
