Game Details

Good frantic fun.

A sleeper hit; not heavily promoted (or sold), EA ended up becoming fairly popular.

Urban Legend Alert: Lent its name to an early '90s "fad" of inner-city youth. The youth would "surf" on the top of elevators, occasionally being mangled or crushed- much like the hero of the arcade game.
